“Should I call someone or is that being racist?
These words were in the day before yesterday’s post, but I had to bring them up to the top again and put them into bold letters. They are so important to understanding one of the most dangerous sides of promoting racial sensitivity over truth. The person who thought this, said this and came very close to not acting on this, almost cost many Americans their lives.
When the teen and another employee went into a back room and began the conversion of the tape, they saw a group of bearded men wearing “fundamentalist attire” and shooting “big, f-ing guns,” the teen later told co-workers.
Throughout the 90-minute-long tape, above the booming gunfire at a Pennsylvania target range, the jihadists could be heard screaming “God is great!”
The two employees “freaked out,” their co-worker recalled.
At first, the teenage clerk didn’t know what to do, his pal said.
“Dude, I just saw some really weird s-,” he frantically told his co-worker. “I don’t know what to do. Should I call someone or is that being racist?”
The fellow employee tried to calm his friend and told him that if what he saw terrified him so much, he should tell the police.
The teen first consulted with a manager before making the 911 call.
Hopefully anyone reading this will know this as the words of the Circuit City clerk who helped foil a jihad on US soil. Luckily, he did act on this, but what if the fellow employee also thought it might be racist? Would they have gotten to the manager? What if the manager thought it was racist? If either of these situations happened then the next persons to know about the conspiracy would be the US soldiers as they died at the hands of the men shouting “god is great.”
I don’t wish to condemn, nor judge anyone based solely on race but most situations including this one, rarely involve only racial issues. I don’t think we are a great nation and people because we ignore or deny racial differences, we are great because we are many races working together for our nation. Truth is a key component of freedom.
Lately, I’ve been referred to as a bigot, racist, etc. more times than usual, but even so, I had to put this in another post in hopes that more people would see that ignoring race, ethnicity, religion is not sensitive, it is dangerous.Tags: National Issues
