My husband got punched in the face at work.
My husband was at our deli, which is inside another, bigger store. He and the other store owners were watching coverage of the arrest of the Boston bomber yesterday. I should say that he and the other store owners are obviously Muslim, they have items around the store that indicate that and often play Quar'an MP3s and such, so everyone in the neighborhood is aware of it.
Yesterday a man came in the store and started to ask my husband what he was watching. My husband replied politely and talked about the news. The guy started to say "But why are you SAD? Why are YOU SAD?" in a confrontational way, yelling in his face.
After a minute of this my husband tried to hustle him out of the store, leading him by the arm out the door. While my hubs was trying to get the door open and push him out the guy roundhoused him in the side of his face, and then ran away.
For those who say that Muslims don't suffer bigotry in this country, what do you think about that? And I know my area is more accepting and used to seeing Muslims and Arabs, since we have a large-ish population around here. I shudder to think what happens to people who live in less accepting areas.
