Anti-terrorism equals racism

After I blogged on the utter lack of anti-Islamist terrorist movies, the aptly-named "World o' Crap" blog accused me of being a racist for pointing out that the good guy FBI deputy director in the latest Die Hard movie looked Arabic (presumably to reinforce that this was not an anti-Islamist movie) and noted the actor is from New Zealand. But:

  1. How my saying he looked Arabic has anything to do with racism is unexplained.
  2. Arabs are Caucasian. That's my race.
  3. The actor is an aborigine descendant, hence his dark skin. He actually PLAYED an Arab in the movie Three Kings.

Anti-antiterrorism is alive and well in both Hollywood and the blogosphere.
