Sorry for two political posts in a row, but I had to share this.
Someone has been fired for saying bigoted anti-Islam remarks. No, it's not who you think, or perhaps hope it would be (cough, FOX, cough). See the full article at the BBC here.
Basically, a (previously) well respected NPR news analyst went on the O'Reilly Show and said that he got nervous if he saw obviously Muslim people on a plane. Juan Williams used to be all about non-discrimination and civil rights. But apparently only for African Americans. Not for everyone.
NPR, and I must say that I adore that organization, promptly ended his contract. One step in the right direction in ending the double standard that exists when it comes to Islam vs. any other minority.
