IGNORANCE LEADS TO HATE CRIME
Recently Pedram has posted about the ignorance, lack of genral knowledge and condescention of the general US citizens. Read it here. A must read!
There are many reactions to this post. However I liked this one from Kris:

Now there is a cartoon in the newspaper, the Hartford Courant, published from Connecticut state, where the picture of a bearded and turbaned Sikh is referred to as "Osama's no-good cousin, Randy Bin Laden." This has angered the Sikh community, who are generally deemed as a peacful race. Read more here.
The United Sikhs, an advocacy group said:
Such gross misinformation within the media leads only to cause more confusion and negative sentiment towards innocent people.
See the relevancy in Pedrams claims.
