Well iw ouldnt be sure...no ones really treated me any differently other than saying terrorist jokes more often.

My dad opened a middle eastern restaurant and lots of people have been in there and liked it so far.

no doubt there's increased suspicion, but considering there hasn't been any other attacks in all this time, it's probably not justified anymore

Completely missing the point of the thread. He asked what the attitude of Americans is towards them. I have no problem with people because they're from the Middle East. But a lot of Americans do tend to have an attitude towards them.. Though it seems to be coming down somewhat. After 911 EVERYONE was suddenly a patriot with American flags hanging off the roof of their homes. It was kinda weird, and kinda freaked me out. Then everyone started putting those stupid magnetic ribbons on their cars, which shows much less dedication than a bumper sticker. Anyway.. But towards the beginning there seemed to be a lot of hostility towards Middle Easterners, and people would look strangely at anyone that was brown. When I'd be at the grocery store with my dad, who is a dark mexican man, he'd get funny looks, which was pretty funny.

I tend to NOT pay much attention to the people around me these days, but I don't think it's as hateful as it was after 9/11. Though, I did get into it with a guy the other day who was going on about, "towel heads." I mean, to be fair.. He was a soldier, and I understand why he doesn't like them.. seeing as how he had to be there. But, still..

Sad to say, but I think in America, there's a lot of prejudice against people from the Middle East. It's quite sad, but there will always be people like that.

Yes because that wasnt a baist survey. Lets go around and ask old people who probably were children during WWII and are set in there ways. Yes they are the voice of everyone. WOW I hope those guys are not still on TV. Worst segment ever.

Prejudice towards whom? Other countries, or towards America? If I'm being prejudice against America, it's allowed. I'm American. If it's prejudice towards other countries: I was joking, I don't even like sports. I was making a joke about Americans and why we feel we're better than everyone else.

I've noticed there's definitely a less than favourable attitude towards them here in Scotland....even a lot of my friends don't seem too fond of them nowadays.
