I think it may be intended to enrage Americans against Terrorists and people trying to harm our country....But I really say the "Arab" store owners as a reality check....how many convenience stores are owned and or operated by people with a Middle Eastern Background?
I guess it's a lot like the womens rights thing to me. Where I'm from, you don't get to use being a Woman (or black, or Mexican, or Indian) as an excuse. If something needs done, Get over yourself and and do it. You can go back to self loathing and pity when the work has been done. Because of that, i just am not as sensitive to the things that upset the rest of you. Where I'm from, being an Arab doesn't make you special, nor does it make a story racist or hateful!
