: : You defend Muslims & condemn people who make attrocious generalized statements about Muslims for making these statements based on erroneous ethnic/religious stereotypes (which I think is good), but you commonly express anger at "whites." Isn't that just a bit hypocritical?
>>>Yes, it is very hypocritical and not constructive. Fred rightly believes that the people at AINA who categorically believe that Muslims are bad and evil need to be shown how their thinking is not only false but rooted in the greater prejudices of their mindset. However, in showing the flaws of their prejudice and beliefs, Fred's own prejudices emerge. He makes categorical assumptions about "whites" and what they do against "darkies," and makes gross stereotypical observations about Christians, Americans and so on.
The people at AINA then see him as a Muslim lover. Fred sees them as droids mindlessly comitted to the American way, which is agains the darkies' interests. In characterizing the world this way and in making gross assumptions , both Fred and the people at AINA are acting like big, fat HYPOCRITES, and ignorant people on top of that.
