Stop that, @D1 it's not up to the oppressed to change people's minds. The answer is to correct the people doing wrong and hold THEM accountable. Also, the main (not only) people I see saying this stuff are non-minorities. Historically no one told the founding fathers to be the bigger person, or "fuck hate with love" - no, they fought for the freedoms they wanted and got it and we praise them as heroes. If OP wanted to tell Ben Carson he's a bigoted ignoramus he had the right to do so as well he wouldn't have been wrong. You don't have a right to police how he decides to stand up for his humanity. Be thankful all he did was tell a joke.

Hey @D11 Muslim leaders have denounced terrorism stop making shit up and do your research bozo. It's people like you who bring this country down. Just because there are a few bad apples, that doesn't justify you to blame the whole religion, nor call it fake. Again you need to do research yourself. Learn about the religion talk to someone who's knowledgable about the Quran and we'll see how much your views change.

Fight hate with love. Your comment just made you look like a dick and probably made him more defensive and set in his ways.

@D1 why is it that those who are targeted by hateful ideology charged with the responsibility to fix the people that hate them? @OP Didn't do anything wrong - he didn't attack him verbally or physically. He made a joke and stood up for his humanity. How about instead of shaming him you be part of the solution so that such ignorance isn't a part of our society?

He probably didn't say anything because there's nothing to say to such a blind misunderstanding of what Carson advocated. Carson had plenty of misunderstandings himself, but fighting stupid with stupid isn't going to get anywhere. You just kinda acted like a jerk.

People still kill in the name of Jesus still and have HERE. Feel free to ignore that fact if you'd like but admit you have a heart issue. Google.com....we don't go around saying all Christians are terrorists, we call them deranged. Untimely the issue is the browner you are the less benefit of the doubt you have, in every way - historically Anglo Saxtons and Europeans have been the source of a variety of wars and genocide, yet no one says they're a global problem. Again, you're speaking from privilege and honestly hate. Turn off Fox News and read something with reputable data every now and then. While you're at it, spend time with actual Muslims.

All of this is coming from ME a guy who loves Christ Jesus. Smh. I can still see this is a problem. Again, support to the followers of Islam, a peaceful religion and salute to OP the goat!

Wow D12 that's such an uneducated comment. It's a shame we both work for the same company. Do not speak on what you don't know. I challenge you to sit down with an imam and go through the Quran together. Did you know that there are well over 1 billion Muslims worldwide and Islam is the largest religion in the world. If the Quran was making people take the wrong path the whole world would be done for. Don't let the media mess your head up.
