Once Again, The Actions of A Few Are Being Used To Paint A Whole Community

This is an excellent discussion about the unfortunate stereotyping, especially of Muslims, that incidents like the Boston bombings and the discovery that the two involved were Muslim bring to light. In it they bring up the truth that every time someone that is white does something bad like this it is amazing how quickly the discussion moves away from their being white to, well they are Chechen, or they are Muslim, or in a case like Newtown or Aurora they are mentally ill, etc. But when a black person does something, or a Muslim person, it indicts all blacks or all Muslims. In this video Dyson nails this point. But the other panelists make excellent similar points.
