This is all because Dunkin Donut franchises are all owned by towel-heads.
So the ignorant just figured Rachel must be one of them.

I don't believe in any man made religion but what is your definition of a terrorist??? Also, by your stupid remark, I guess the "Timmy the Bomber" and the IRA are muslim.

Most terrorists are muslim. It is a fact. Tens of thousands of attacks in recent years. From Europe to India to Indonesia.

Now if she was wearing a Swastika armband, I could see some reference for all this angst. She is a self made celebrity and is gifted with camera friendly looks. I am a lot more concerned with true Muslim terrorists that are stock piling weapons and digging tunnels under the borders to Israel. If people are truly concerned about a "black and white" issue, how about "the only good terrorist is a dead terrorist". Now there is an issue with substance. You're welcome.

Islamic terrorist bombings and attacks are occuring today and can be numbered in the thousands. The attacks you refer too were years ago.
Your comparison is irrelevant.

No but the vast majority of terrorist are. Perhaps you don't understand the meaning of the modifier "most" that I used in my earlier post.

Perhaps you don't understand the meaning of your modifier. "Most" means sum, not all??? Moot point though, say what you wish.

Everyone understands your stupid point and you just contradicted yourself numerous times.

Nope, the money your momma gave me. She told me you are starting to look like your real daddy. Tell your sis, she was 20 dollars short... she needs to lay off the crack pipe.

I think Rachel Ray is over popularized. If it wasnít for Oprah promoting her she would of never made it into TV and commercials. As for the scarf, it has no significance for me. I find it ironic that some people find meaning in everything from the half moon on Proctor and Gamble, to tattoos that stars wear, all the way down to the individuals themselves. The advertising agency and actors they chose need to fit diversity pattern diversity, show no signs of religion, and are generally younger mid stream income. Soon all the advertisements will be done with mannequins (Old Navy), animals (Northern Bathroom tissue), or cartoons as not to offend anyone. As for Dunkin Doughnuts when they stopped making doughnuts in house and started making off site their business suffered. Several times I have been into Dunkin Doughnuts only to find no doughnuts on the shelf because they were awaiting a shipment or didnít stock raspberry flavored cream cheese spread. Some places wont heat up ones muffin either. There is no consistency from store to store. So wasting time going to a doughnut store that no longer has fresh doughnuts or no doughnuts at all seems like a bad management decision. Advertisements will not work when people become dissatisfied. for one bad reaction to a customer and you lost a lot more to word of mouth.

It's amazing that people worry about a scarf in a DD ad, when there are so many other things to worry about. Things like North Korea and Iran going nuclear. It won't matter what race, religion, nationality, etc. you are, if a nuke is set off, we're all dead. It may not be terrorists that annihilate thousands, it may be the leader of a country.
