how long until we realize that Muslim and Arab are not synonymous with terrorist? how long until we remember that the unabomber, Timothy McVeigh, and the vast majority of violent criminals in this country are american citizens?
how long will we allow people's right to be violated because they or their ancestors came from a country that our oh-so-respectable president deems "evil"?
how long will we require people to report to the government and be fingerprinted because of their religion?
a Very Disturbing chicago tribune article (you will have to sign in or register for it's quick and it's free!)
how long?

And while I'm at it, how long will we allow millions of people to starve in Africa while we grow excess food and hoard it for overweight americans? What about the starving people down the street? or right outside our doors?
What about the 12 million children who go hungry at least once a day because their parents have jobs that don't pay enough to feed the family, but they aren't eligible for food assisstance because they have jobs?
how long will we tolerate war that is a direct result of pushing our own agendas? When will there be peace and toleration and understanding?
how long?
