SHAFAQNA -Â A Muslim womanÂ claimed this week that she was discriminated against on a plane, because the flight attendant was apparently worried she could use a soda can as a weapon. Well,Â Jon Stewart decided it was a good opportunity to help show Muslims how to better assimilate in America.
CorrespondentÂ Hasan Minhaj praised the airline for refusing to give the woman a â€œcarbonated grenadeâ€ and explained that â€œanything on a plane is a weapon to a Muslim.â€
He gave three pieces of advice to Muslims: â€œchange your name,â€ hide your beard (â€œmy beard is actually on the inside of my mouthâ€), and â€œwear something a little more America-loving.â€
Of course sarcasm was the order of the day … the real joke is on America – as Jon Steward pointed out, as racism and bigotry are fast claiming Americans’ common sense.
