    There's nothing wrong with being aware of your environment. In fact it's advisable. While in the train station, I suddenly paid close attention when I saw someone walk away from a bag, and it made no difference to me what ethnicity they were. Over-attention to people of one demographic can lead to being blind-sided by a different demographic. So, a general awareness - as long as it doesn't lead to paranoia - is normal and smart.

    there is no rational, logical, nor intelligent reason to have any suspision of your average Muslim..of being a terrorist.

    especially Muslim-Americans.

That is not how the world works. People are not absolutely trusting by nature; when **** hits the fan and hundreds/thousands dies, people have the right to feel a bit f apprehension.
    do you also not completely trust Jews because there are Jews who sympathize with radical Jews?

    or do only Muslims get this special treatment?

    You're rather well known; which is why your smearing/baiting really doesn't count.

    Do you trust all Muslims/Christians/Republicans/Democrats, etc? If you do, that is foolish. If you don't, how do you "rationalize your bigotry and hate"?

    you should stop wasting your time with this example of "bigotry". In the grand scope of things average american weariness towards Muslims is nothing but grain of sand on a beach.

    judging your passion on the subject,

    You should travel to Africa and jump in front of bullets being shot at Christians instead... be much more helpful. Or go to Israel and protest missals being fired basically only because of religious hate.

    The point is "justify & rationalize bigotry and hate." is a little much...

    It's not a lie, doesn't describe the whole picture because I didn't feel like going into an entire history lesson in one post.

    you know what I mean, and If you don't, your a lost cause.

    THE POINT IS... you are OVERLY dramatic.

    Based on his persistent stalking of my posts, I can say this is true. For once, it would be appreciated if he discussed the topic at hand, instead of changing it into something so different. It needs to stop.
