A one-off incident or a symptom of our politicians and times?~ 12-year-old Waleed Abushaaban is an honor student and says he has no idea why his teacher called him a terrorist in front of his whole class on Thursday.“Were in the class watching a movie,” explained Waleed, “and I was just laughing at the movie and the teacher said, ‘I wouldn’t be laughing if I was you.’ And I said why? She said, ‘because we all think you're a terrorist.”
Waleed says the class was watching Bend it Like Beckham after their STAAR tests and that after that comment other students started making fun of him. Link.
