Cenk Uygur, Brown University Professor Tricia Rose, Mediaite editor Noah Rothman, and βThe War Roomβ host Michael Shure debate whether or not itβs okay Americans to hope the people who committed the Boston Marathon attacks are of a certain race, ethnicity or religious background.
βI have to be honest with myself,β Cenk says. βI was rooting for non-Middle Eastern.β
"Yeah, I was hoping for a white guy, because I know the way that American is reactionary, and has proven so in the past," Shure said. "The way that they go after [minorities]. You know, after 9/11 they were killing Sikh Indians in gas stations in Texas, or a Sikh Indian. And it was very difficult, the profiling that happened after that. So, yeah, I think it keeps the flames down."
"If it is a white American guy, I think that -- that's what I was rooting for and I'll confess to it too," Shure tried to explain.
