What do you all think of this?

I think it's one of those deals where both sides are right, and both are wrong. I mean, freedom of speech is great, but on the other hand you can't yell "fire" in a crowded theater or wear "I hate black people" in downtown Harlem. At least not without consequences.

If you were getting ready to board a plane with your family, would you want a man with Arabic writing on his shirt getting on board? I'll be honest...I wouldn't. We have to adapt to their culture when we're over there. Women don't walk around in short shorts, etc.

why wouldn't you want a man with arabic writing on his shirt to get on a plane with you?

how would you feel about a bus or a train?

We have to adapt to their culture over there because they are not tolerant. We are supposed to be.

His "Arabic writing" probably said "Burger King" or something similar....

So they should be able to throw anyone off the plane who speaks Arabic as well, I take it.

Anyone who could successfully translate the shirt should be refused the right to fly as well.

america is multicultural. people have immigrated here from all over the world since the country was conceived. "no foreign languages on shirts" is not part of america's culture.

Especially if they are gay and once served the Army.

Hm.
JFK.
Surprising in one way....not so much in another.
Before reading the article my brain was screaming GOTTA BE ST. LOUIS....but no.

Pretty stupid. It is a shirt. Get over it. Leave the man alone. A real hijacker most likely isn't going to announce himself pre-flight.

Guys, all he had to do was put on another shirt. Let's not get carried away on the other side of this.

Like I said, both sides are right, both are wrong.

If it was just me and this guy getting on a plane, I wouldn't worry (and his shirt translated into something that wasn't exactly innocent...it's in the story). But if I'm getting on with my wife and kids...I'd think twice. I really would. All this poo going down in Israel right now, you never know.

Bowing to the ignorance of others.

It's what makes America great.

Face it: the guy is not "wrong" to wear a shirt with Arabic writing on it. It has nothing to do with someone wearing a shirt that says "I hate black people" in Harlem. If the shirt said, "Die Infidels!" on it you might make a case. It's not the guys fault others are ignorant and stupid, and that includes the airline people.
