  • Because our Government and our media has drilled this thought into our heads. A pity that people can no longer find out for themselves the truth.

  • I think it is a phobia/fear thing. Some terrorists are muslims so it's like an association thing. Like when someone says a word and another automatically comes to mind.

  • I think that lots of people are still affected by 911 so much, that they automatically assume that someone that appears "muslim" in their eyes that they may pose a risk. But you have to understand we are living in the last days and it's getting harder to trust even your closest neighbor. So since trust has been broken everywhere, I think lots of peolpe do racial profiling when they see some one new for the first time. It really does suck that people do this to everyone, cuz how can you help being the race you were born as? I'm sorry if your family is going thru this.

  • People who think that way are ignorant and prejudiced. There really isn't any other excuse for it.
