Is This Ad Campaign Racist?
by Daniel Person
U.S. Rep. Jim McDermott, D-Seattle, says so.
In a letter to the FBI requesting they pull the campaign from Seattle buses, McDermott sounds off on what he says is "offensive to Muslims and ethnic minorities" and "encourages racial and religious profiling."
The ad shows sixteen faces of wanted terrorists, all of whom appear to be from predominantly Muslim regions. McDermott calls foul, writing that the FBI's Most Wanted Terrorists list includes people of other races and "associations with other religions and causes."
