A Turkish group is claiming Lego’s “Jabba’s Palace” set is racist. Be advised, there is so much stupid in this article, that you’ll probably want to stick a thermal detonator in your mouth.
Lego has been accused of racism by the Turkish community over a Star Wars toy allegedly depicting a mosque. The critics claim that the Jabba’s Palace model, part of Lego’s Star Wars range, offends Muslims as it resembles the Hagia Sophia mosque in Istanbul – one of the world’s most renowned mosques.
Pfft, many Muslims today make the Tusken Raiders look like Jehovah’s Witnesses . . .
The suit claims that Catholic University does not provide Muslim students an area for daily Muslim prayers, and the spaces that are available are surrounded by Catholic (read: offensive) symbols.
New charges have recently been filed against the University on counts of illegal discrimination against its Muslim and female students. The allegations are being reviewed by the District of Colombia Office of Human Rights (OHR), which has the strictest discrimination laws in the country. President John H. Garvey and the University is being urged to respond to the charges.
I’m sorry, but as a Catholic, this frivolous lawsuit infuriates me. I mean, if Catholic symbols are so incongruous, then why did the Muslims bother to enroll in the university at all?
