There were hearings on Italians and the mafia. Nobody called Bobby Kennedy racist.

Try to see the hearing for yourself if you can. It's worth it.

After several Muslims (M. Zhudi Jasser, Carlos Leon Bledsoe, Abdirizak Bihi) testified that members of their family had been radicalized and that the their mosque and Muslim community leaders either did not want to get involved or actively attacked them for saying anything negative about Islam,
Shirley Jackson Lee had the nerve to yell and at them and accuse them of advocating hate-AGAINST MUSLIMS!.

Rep Laretta Sanchez berated M. Zhudi Jasser about his complaint that Muslims were not coperating with the with authroities. Sanchez acused Zhudi of not wanting Muslims to have civil rights. Sanchez told Muslim M. Zhudi Jasser that minority communities had reason to fear law enforcement.

Zhudi said he didn't think Muslims should be taught that to be afraid of the law enforcement officers and that he had no reason to fear talking to lawenforcent. He would not necessarily demand to have legal council if the police wanted to talk to him.
