Come On Now, Lowe's. You've Reached, Well, You Know.
One of my students, for her final presentation in the course "After 9/11," chose to examine representations of Arabs and Muslims in the United States--in particular, "Amreeka" and the new show, "All-American Muslim." And now, right on time, the Right has chosen to attack this show for NOT showing "the radical side" of Islam in this show. Sorry for not confirming your stereotypes. And Lowe's, being the upstanding American corporation, stopped advertising on the show because of the "controversy." Thanks, Jon Stewart, for stepping into this madness.
