Miami Herald goes Race-Baiting

According to the Miami Herald headline:

Fla. GOP members shoot Muslim targets at gun range

This is the target they were shooting at.

Now, do you see a Muslim, or a terrorist pointing a rocket-propelled grenade?

You can find this and other racist GOP shooting subjects at, uh, Law Enforcement Targets, Inc.

The real racism here is that several layers of producers and editors at the Miami Herald thinks "Muslim" and "terrorist" are synonyms. The next time they want to look for people with racial/cultural biases, they'll have to go far.

So clearly, they are saying that anyone shooting an RPG is a muslim- boy and they are calling the GOP racists?!?!

I read that story and was really curious just what they meant by "muslim targets"

IRL, if you hit the little flat spot on the cone, it becomes a reactive target.....

I suppose if a similar group used a cut-out of a Wehrmacht soldier during WWII, then the Miami Herald would consider that "race baiting" too. You think?

Is the Miami Herald implying rhat all muslims are terrorists? Better call CAIR!

They're racist, stupid, and wrong -- the keffiyeh isn't a Muslim thing, it's an Arab thing. True, many Muslims wear it, but it's also worn by Arab Christians.
