True. Racism never existed before and neither did racial killings. And this didn't happen either.

Imagine if it were the other way around i.e. a person of middle eastern origin shooting a white American, cnn & fox would be spending countess hours with their analysis paralysis. Oh yeah! Did I thank current administration for making villains out of immigrants with their hate-filled diatribe. Canada mosque shooting and this got no media coverage compared to the NJ incident back in. September

Regardless of who is President, it is risky to to a bar. First of all, it is a rip off, people are drunk, and then who knows who is loaded with weapons. If you manage to get in and out safely, then there are cops to nail you for DUI. A friend of mine got busted and ended up spending over 10k on the DUI case.

Best response in my opinion.

Only losers and rednecks frequent bars in places like Kansas City.

Decent, educated and hard working Indians do not belong there.

Hey how about Hindooos putting on something religious/spiritual on their forehead - that 3rd eye symbol might just save their life, huh?  No

You must be an idiot to assume that Rani Singh is me. A little background check into her posts would've given you some idea. In any case, if i post, i am going to have a very telugu handle and will indicate who i am. I don't need to pretend anything otherwise.

Very sad! No one deserves this. She was pretty eloquent and composed despite her overwhelming grief. I hope the government/law enforcement categorizes this as a 'hate' crime because that is what it is and not brush it off as mental illness/PTSD related crime. 

I think the practical and the best thing for anyone faced with a bigot/racist/bully is to get away from that situation and not confront or reason with that person, especially when the person is also drunk. 

Some time ago, someone here on the boards said that her children were and are constantly told to go back to their country. My boys never complained of such a thing, so i asked my older one to be frank and tell me if anyone said that to him anytime in school. He said that no one ever said that to him in school (but said that he can see that happening to someone in middle school and so the one who talked about it on the forum could be right). But, he said he encountered such an incident once when he was in undergrad. It was night and he was walking in the campus along with a friend when an obviously inebriated guy shouted, 'hey, go back to your country'. Son and his friend just ignored him and walked away. Son said that the guy was pretty drunk, probably on drugs too and was looking to pick up a fight. The best thing for son and friend to do was to walk away. No point in picking up a fight with him. I am glad he did that. Who knows, the situation could've gotten ugly had they turned back and confronted the guy. 

There are crazy guys like the shooter and there are heroic guys like Ian who saved the life of Alok. They were, are and will always be there. Stay safe!

Ya Hellsu, keep pretending that you dodged a bullet by voting Trump and everything is perfectly normal and exactly the way things always were in the US. This is just Libbie alarmism, that's all.

What do you think that these guys have done differently that would've saved his life? Had they chose to leave the bar, what is the guarantee that the shooter was not camped-out in the parking lot?

Blame the victim is their mantra! some (obviously republicans) are suggesting that Kuchibhotla was being stupid by arguing with the provocateur when it wasn't clear yet of the nature of the argument.

Assumptions! assumptions! Getting all twisted and making assumptions to suit their ageda is the strategy of liberals, i guess. 
My suggestion has more to do about you all staying safe and more importantly, about talking to your kids to walk away from an ugly situation as much as possible. It has nothing to do with blaming the victims. Jeez!!

Let me remind you that it was a mere 100 thousand votes differential.

In a phone interview with The New York Times on Friday night, Madasani described the remarks made by the man sitting near him and Mr. Kuchibhotla on the restaurant’s patio. “He asked us what visa are we currently on and whether we are staying here illegally,” Mr. Madasani said. Both men were educated in the United States and were working here legally.

“We didn’t react,” Madasani said. “People do stupid things all the time. This guy took it to the next level.”

Madasani said he went in to get a manager, and by the time he returned to the patio, the man was being escorted out.

Yeah, 20 years ago, liberals were just that. True liberals, not libtards who were sucking up to muslims. Except in India, nowhere else in the world were muslims appeased beyond belief. Congress was doing that in India because of vote bank politics and we see what happened now. 
When did Germany, Sweden, Denmark, France and the other EU nations start taking in refugees and changing the demographics of their countries? Not more than just a few years ago. Before that, the liberal danish cartoonists were drawing the pix of Mohamad in defiance of the religious dogma of the muslims and the French banned the wearing of burkhas and hijabs as it was seen as a regressive, medieval custom which goes against the liberation of women. When Bush declared, 'you are either with us or with the terrorists' no one, even Hillary, dared to say a word (Bush should've taken the opportunity to clean up Pakistan and Afghanistan, not meddle with iraq, but alas!!) 
Libtards changed everything now. They got into the stockholm syndrome mode wrt muslims and with their irrational muslim appeasement, naturally incurred resentment of the rest of the folks. With their divisive politics, america is not what it used to be 20 years ago. UK and Europe were also not what they used to be 20 years ago and they are getting worse. Hopefully, America will not go the Europe route. 
Unfortunately as Indians looks like Pakis and middle easterners, they could incur the resentment too. Blame the libtards for bringing the country to this stage.

i was under the impression that kinnera does not like trump and i certainly detest him. SO exactly whom are you calling trump supporters?

how about you make a note of the fact that sane reasonable people voted for trump because they felt so marginalized by the democrats?

i also want to congratulate SEs for their role in turning the democratic party into a sneaky little creature that will from now on play vote-bank politics based on religion and color and never ever return to ideas and issues and values. yes, max, those ideas like honesty and compassion and freedom and equal rights that you value will merely be teased around desperately for the right number of votes but they will never stand up for them.

If you read it again with a calm and open mind, you'll get it. 
 
Anyway, for your sake, i'll give the gist of it. It is not good for any religious/racial/ethnic group to be appeased by a political party. The liberal appeasement of the muslims in fact caused the resentment among the rest of the folks. This kind was appeasement wasn't there 20 years ago. And since Indians can be mistaken for muslims, they can incur the wrath too, as was seen recently.

 Blame the liberals, not Trump for this kind of resentment. The dems' appeasement cause more harm to muslims living peacefully here for decades.

What muslim appeasement are you talking about? If anything muslims are the ones that get profiled more than any other community be at the airports or elsewhere. WOW! liberals are the reason for Trump's xenophobia, that's some discombobulated logic.

lol. she won the popular vote by way more. you're underestimating your very own side! ha ha ha

would you like some facts, fact-loving, blue-blue person?  hill got 2.9 mil more votes but you're forgetting that 62.9 million people voted trump into the presidency. even one vote is too much for a man with a walnut-sized brain....but you're not really keeping track, so maybe we should just let you stick to your alt-fact.

Let me remind you that it was a mere 100 thousand votes differential.
lol. she won the popular vote by way more. you're underestimating your very own side! ha ha ha

would you like some facts, fact-loving, blue-blue person?  hill got 2.9 mil more votes but you're forgetting that 62.9 million people voted trump into the presidency. even one vote is too much for a man with a walnut-sized brain....but you're not really keeping track, so maybe we should just let you stick to your alt-fact.

The hope is that the so-called moderate republicans may have learned their lesson after voting Trump to WH.

KHOU reported that a woman sitting nearby alerted a flight attendant, which led other passengers to also complain about the man’s questions. When the Indian American boyfriend of the woman who alerted the attendant complained, a heated exchange followed.

“The person ahead of us turned around and asked where my boyfriend was from; my boyfriend said it’s none of your business,” the woman told KHOU. “At that point, he said all illegals and all foreigners need to leave the country.”

Cellphone footage of the incident shows the man saying that all the “illegals” should be kicked off the plane, moments before the man and woman were asked to collect their belongings and exit the aircraft.

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is speaking out against an alleged hate crime that took place in Olathe, Kan. last week.

Adam Purinton, 51, shouted “get out of my country” at two Indian men in a bar before he opened fire, killing one man and injuring two others. With reports that Purinton’s actions were racially motivated, Clinton is calling on President Donald Trump, who has yet to speak out against the shooting, for change.

"With threats & hate crimes on rise, we shouldn't have to tell @POTUS to do his part. He must step up & speak out," she tweeted Monday morning.

The contrast couldn't have been starker. Thank You Mrs. Clinton.

That is a factually incorrect tweet but how is it related to immigrants? Are you worried about refugees from Islamic countries?

Hint: read the original story and see who the shooter thought he had killed.

As if it would have been okay to set fire if they had been Arabic.

Jason Kendall was walking down State Street about 3 p.m. Saturday when he saw a woman standing inside Al Aqsa Restaurant in Salem, Ore., according to Fox affiliate KPTV. The Mediterranean food joint is a few blocks from the state’s Capitol and Willamette University.

Kendall said he thought the woman was being held hostage because “of the type of shirt she was wearing,” the news station reported. He would later tell police that holding women hostage was “what Arabs do.”

So he walked into the restaurant and told the woman that she was “free to leave,” according to KPTV.

Then he started yelling because he saw a “Saddam Hussein-looking guy” inside the restaurant, according to the Salem Statesman Journal.

“Go back to your country, terrorist,” he told the man. “Get out of America.”

Local media said employees were able to get Kendall to leave, but not for long.

He allegedly returned a few minutes later with a pipe — he told officers that it was his “horn of Gabriel” and that he was walking a “warrior’s path” — and started beating the man who he said looked like Hussein in the head.

Police arrived and arrested Kendall, charging him with assault, unlawful use of a weapon and intimidation. He remained in jail on Sunday with bail set at $65,000.

Ah, come now, you don't need to pretend any more. Our man Trump is in the White House and we don't need to act all politically correct.

There is opportunity,  based on the 'Gabriel' connection (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gabriel), for some TV station to release this item as relating to "believer".
