Two Rows Over a T-Shirt with Arabic on It

From The Progressive

A troubling excerpt:

Here’s what Inspector Harris said, according to Jarrar: “You can’t wear a T-shirt with Arabic script and come to an airport. It is like wearing a T-shirt that reads ‘I am a robber’ and going to a bank.”

I really thought that was the worst analogy an airport official could make. Quite ignorant if you ask me.

You are exactly correct. It's really interesting to hear the stories of Muslim travelers. I know many who have pleasant experiences and others that have quite the opposite.
