I have to interrupt my vacation with a quick post. The "Breaking News"of the day is that a very radicalized young Nigerian from an affluent family, decided to ruin Christmas for a bunch of innocent folks. The president was informed of his actions and has declared him a terrorist. Fortunately, he was caught and the counter- terrorism folks are all over it.
Now my question is this: Are there more Umar Famoul Abdul Mutallabs out there? And if there are, were they working in concert with this genius? I use the word genius facetiously of course, because there is nothing genius about this guy.
Umar, you had a chemical engineering degree, I am guessing you are smart enough to know better than trying to kill your fellow human beings . Religion can be a beautiful thing, but it sure can make people do some crazy things.
Also, for all of you black folks who thought that only Arabs were going to be profiled, think again. This Nigerian brotha just changed the game for some of us Negroes here in A-merry-ca. Thank you Umar. Now my flight home will be delayed due to increased security and longer lines.
Anyway folks, I jut wanted to say a few words about that, and to get your take on the situation and the mood of the country right now.
