I believe the Lodi News-Sentinel is allowing the intensification of stereotypes by printing articles that enhance stereotypes about Muslim people.
One such article written by Joe Guzzardi (http://www.lodinews.com/archives/index.inn?loc=detail&doc=/2001/November/30-1390-01_guzzardi_011130.txt" target="_blank">"Lodi immigrants should adopt American ways," News-Sentinel, Nov. 30).
I don't approve of the way he criticizes the Muslim community and the way he portrays them so negatively. Many of my students and neighbors are Muslim and they are great people.
I can't believe an educator would contribute to the augmentation of already damaging stereotypes that plague the Muslim community. What a shame.
He needs to find a new career. A good teacher can't have those convictions and call himself an educator.
