The Post, an independent newspaper of Ohio University, has an opinion piece that argues the misunderstanding of Arabs, Muslims and the Quran help to "create a high incidence of hate crimes against innocent Muslim-Americans." The article discusses the pernicious consequences of commentary by certain pundits and the acceptance of racial profiling as a means of identifying terrorists.
The article concludes by stating, "The best way to eliminate bigotry is to spread awareness." However, the author admits that this goal is made more difficult by the "mass media or opinion manufacturers" who perpetuate certain phrases and justify the belief that Muslims can be categorically viewed with suspicion.
