Response to Goes to show

I'm a more positive person who looks for the good in all things. I was touched by those who stood up for the young woman and was encouraged that those who did were in the majority. But those who reacted--good and bad-- were only half of the number. Those who stood there and did nothing may have had a number of reasons for not speaking out....and many were probably not confrontational.... but I'd like to think that at least a few left there wishing they had stood up to that clerk and I'll bet they'll think twice before standing there silently while idiots are subjecting some other "Arab-looking" person to such rudeness. I'd like to think that many of them were just too shocked to react until it was all over. So I'm not so quick to judge this whole country based on that experiment. *-)
