My favorite quotation: "They're turban toppers.  What's racist about that? They wear a turban."

Submitted by Kansas resident Sheyda, who notes that while it is definitely racist, "'turban topper' does show a flair for alliteration, no?"

Submitted by Adam, who notes, "The one Jewish actor was matched with the one character with stereotypical Jewishness.  But Brody really does look like Ichabod...."  So who's more racist—Disney, Slate, or GOD?

P.S. I have a huge celebrity crush on Adrian Brody.  That is all.

Yes it is.

Reports the Christian Science Monitor:

'Anti-Islamic' bus ads appear in major cities

A group called 'Stop Islamization of America' is promoting ads on major city public transportation that urge people to leave the Muslim faith. The anti-Islamic campaign is sparking thought about the religion's place in American society.

The group Stop Islamization of America paid for bus ads, such as this one in San Francisco, to promote its viewpoint. The ads, which read, ‘Leaving Islam?,’ are intended to be a resource for former Muslims. Muslim rights groups and others consider the ads to be anti-Islam.
