    this is about your every-day, average Muslim-American, walking down the street.

    and you know what I feel when I see such a Muslim? pride.

    pride that I live in a country and a city where all are welcome, regardless of who they are.
    I'm not sure why you would profile an average muslim person either, it doesn't make much sense.

    well, considering Muslims can be of any race, its kinda hard to profile Muslims unless you know for a fact that they are a Muslim.

    I'm sorry (though not surprised) you can't figure out how you doing the exact same thing you condemn someone else for is relevant.

    really?

    I suggest that certain religous groups or ethnic groups deserve special treatment and should be feared?

    All humans are monkeys and should be suspected as such.

    You've said an entire group of people are the same just by virtue of them belonging to that group.
