Silvertray – nice to see you are not part of the crowd of narrow-mindedness that we’ve seen in these posts.

It’s so sad to think that many people victimising Muslim groups are part of a Business Traveller community – but that goes to show that this belief is beyond class and social status.

Aren’t we supposed to be the open-minded, democratic society that we so often suggest in the media? Guess not.

The sad truth is that there is a clear ‘us’ and ‘them’ mentality in today’s society. If you’re born into a white family and have no connections with a person of a different ethnicity, then you don’t care that many muslims are being misjudged as potential terrorists every day… there is a HUGE misunderstanding here, driven by prejudice and media sensationalism about terrorism.

I also wanted to say – it wasn’t long ago when the IRA were setting off bombs in London…. back then, people got on with life. There was none of this terrorism hype in the media. And terrorists who were… white? Who could have thought it?!!!
