Op-Ed "Terrorists are people too"

Dublin Core

Title

Op-Ed "Terrorists are people too"

Description

This Op-Ed was published in The Collegian by Ryan Moser, class of 2005. In this piece, Moser argues that American culture has begun to dehumanize terrorists in favor of violence and death. He uses the terms "Redcoats," "Redmen," "Kraut," "Japs," "Commies," "Gooks," and "Arabs," in what seems to be a satirical manner. Near the end of his piece, Moser asks the reader to consider why terrorists are committing their actions, and to analyze our hatred of terrorists, but also to analyze terrorist's hate for the U.S.
