The unwarranted attacks on Oday Aboushi are a testament to the fact that for racists and bigots, the existence of Arab-Americans & American Muslims is the problem.
It should also serve as a wake-up call to everyone that anti-Arab & Islamophobic rhetoric is not only running rampant, but deemed acceptable in mainstream media, and that we must do everything in our power to confront these last vestiges of “acceptable bigotry” in America.
We should all ask why @YahooSports would publish such a bigoted, slanderous piece.
For context, read this excellent piece “The Slandering of NY Jet Oday Aboushi”
