Lowe’s Learns That American Muslims Are Indeed American

As American as apple pie.

By now you have heard about the stupid move Lowe’s made when they decided to pull their advertising from the TLC show “All-American Muslim.” The company thought it might would be wise to listen to some bigots who somehow convinced them that associating their brand with Muslims was a bad idea.

Well the bad idea was giving in to that silly bigotry. The response was not at all what Lowe’s expected. A great many people called the chain out for giving in to the worst stereotypes about Muslims. And we haven’t heard the end of it. I don’t think Lowe’s will reverse its decision, though I wish they would. But the most important thing to come out of this is that the message was sent to the original close-minded trouble-makers that though they thought Muslims were an easy target for their hate, they were wrong. A whole lot of people have stood up to say this show and the people in it are as much a part of the American fabric as anyone else.

It’s so nice to see America living up to its principles.
