You don't think people would fear a woman in a head scarf right now?

Unless they have to because of Muslim law. Wearing the hijab was enforced by the Taliban regime in Afghanistan. The Taliban's Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan required women to cover not only their head but their face as well, because "the face of a woman is a source of corruption" for men not related to them.
The only Muslim factor that requires the head scarf are terrorist extremists. Non radical Muslims DO NOT require they wear it. So WHY would you choose to wear it right now? You either want controversy or you are required to wear it because it's the law for a terrorist.



Are you serious?

And you aren't required to fly the Confederate flag under any law or religion, so why were some so adamant to still be able to fly it (not only on their property, but on government buildings)? Well by your logic, they want controversy or they are required to wear it because it's the law for a racist. Does that make sense to you?

You know what's interesting? I looked up your posts in that thread. You weren't in that thread saying those who publicly display Confederate flag paraphernalia should stop doing so for a week or two, out of respect for the Charleston victims, like you are here in this thread. Can't have it both ways.

Ho hum.
I'm happy you have the patience to answer him. I can't even formulate a response at this point. The blind hatred and ignorance is appalling.

Sounds like the jerk and these two women chose to not control their reaction.
Yeah, yeah, yeah.

I've heard from your cronies. You have the Constitutional right to be an *******. I got it. The point, which you and many others have missed, is the social, moral, ethical right to treat another human being that way. Like I said before, just because you can doesn't mean you should.

Maybe she felt dehumanized because *******s were lumping her in together with terrorists and not recognizing the fact that she is her own person.

How did I change direction? It was all about clothing choices and religion. .

Sweetheart, you're posting here too...

So unless a ton of people hear or something it doesn't really matter?

Strange idea of what's right and wrong...

You missed it.

They are crying they were mistreated for what they were wearing and that he told them to "go back" to a country they are not from. Yet, they can go into an event with a scheduled guest speaker at the school and shout him down yelling anti-Israeli propaganda and spewing hate towards the visiting professor, the host professor and those there to hear the guest speak on Israeli history based on their nationality.

Their actions are far worse than the man they encountered while out eating breakfast.

They can wear scarves and people can react to it. That happened.

I agree with scarves being provocative at this time, I think a lot of people who wear them know that too. The word I need to use is "alien", it doesn't fit into American cultural norms and when something outside the norm is in the spotlight for killing a bunch of people it's going to get a reaction.

You might think it's wrong, you may think it's mean, but it's human nature, and that's the one thing we will never "social engineer" or peer pressure out of ourselves. All of the choices we make are potential burdens we have to bear ourselves. It's really not national news worthy except it serves a purpose to get us fighting among ourselves.
