Iraqi woman beaten & killed in CA, with note "go back to your country"

This is only one example of the increased number of hate crimes Muslims face in America.

The chief of police said: "A hate crime is one of the possibilities, and we will be looking at that..we don't want to focus on only one issue and miss something else."
A commenter wrote: "this police chief must be drinking his looony pops! Of course it is a HATE crime! "


We all know what makes crimes like these (including the death of Trayvor Martin) possible.  It's the same mentality used to victimize women - by making us less than human.  Here is a thoughtful explanation of how racism is like rape:
