A young Muslim woman said she and another woman were refused seats directly behind Barack Obama – and in front of TV cameras – at a Detroit rally because they wear head scarfs.
Discrimination! Or is it he’s just too scared to be associated with Muslims?
Aref, a 25-year-old lawyer, said a member of her group was told by a volunteer that she could not invite Aref because of “a sensitive political climate.”
What’s so ‘sensitive’ about our political climate? Is this some sort of double-speak???
“It is offensive and counter to Obama’s commitment to bring Americans together and simply not the kind of campaign we run. We sincerely apologize for this behavior,” the statement read.
Ahhh, they’re sorry. Move along kiddies, nothing to see here. Everyone will forgive you for your discrimination and forget about it. They’d do the same for McCain too. Right?
Still, she said, it was difficult to hear Obama’s message of unity among races.
“As he’s saying it, I’m thinking, ‘Well, wait a minute, I was obviously … profiled and discriminated against an hour ago.'”
From the same person that wants to bring us all together! LOL! Suckers!!!
Aref said she replied by thanking Burton, but requested Obama apologize directly to her and Abdelfadeel, as well as invitations to sit behind him at a future campaign event. Obama spokeswoman Amy Brundage said the campaign has apologized.
“He needs to take the matter seriously and send a strong message against any kind of discrimination,” Aref said.
Actions speak louder than words.
Presidential campaigns routinely invite audience members they believe will enhance the image their candidate wants to convey on TV to stand behind the candidate at rallies.
Apparently, the message is white girls love me so vote for me!
It’s funny how the guy who says he can bring us all together can’t even get his church to move away from racism, or his friends away from their terrorist views. If you believe his tripe, then I have one good word for you: Suckers
