Take Action Now: Don't Let Bigots Pressure TLC











Washington, DC | www.adc.org | December 9, 2011 – The American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC) calls on its membership to take action and counter recent calls by fringe individuals and groups pressuring advertisers to drop spots on All-American Muslim, a new series airing on The Learning Channel (TLC).   

All-American Muslim takes a look at life in Dearborn, Michigan -- home to the largest mosque in the United States and the largest concentration of Arab Americans -- through the lens of five Arab American Muslim families. Each episode offers an intimate look at the customs and celebrations, misconceptions and conflicts these families face outside and within their own community.

According to the Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the calls for an advertiser boycott are coming from Internet hate sites like "Bare Naked Islam," which recently featured a number of threats of violence targeting U.S. and European mosques, and right-wing groups such as the Florida Family Association and American Decency. 

Sadly corporations, such as Lowe’s, have succumbed to the idiocracy of such garbage campaigns, which are orchestrated by groups and organizations which lack credibility, legitimacy, and are founded on the basic notions of bigotry and racism reminiscent of a shameful era in this
