Who's the Terrorist?

I read in the amNY paper this morning, then again on, that a Muslim teen girl was threatened and spat upon while riding the Q88 bus to school Tuesday morning. Her bag accidently brushed up against a middle-aged, white man, who then proceeded to call her "terrorist". To him, her hijab was a dead giveaway. What makes this situation even worse was that no one bothered to stop him. Who's the terrorist in this situation?

Reading that this morning gave me a flashback of watching a YouTube video of a social experiment performed by Yousef Saleh Erakat a.k.a fouseyTUBE. It was done this past Dec and ever since I saw it, I could imagine what would happen if that social experiment was done in my home city of NYC. Well, this news story shows that such an experiment isn't needed.

If you'd like to watch the experiment, it's below.
