U.S. Representative Jim McDermott (D-Seattle) is asking the FBI to pull an anti-terrorism ad campaign from Seattle buses, reports the Seattle Weekly.
In his letter to FBI Director Robert Mueller, McDermott writes “The Faces of Global Terrorism” bus ad featuring sixteen photos of wanted terrorists is not only offensive to Muslims and ethnic minorities, but it encourages racial and religious profiling.”
All the faces on the ad appear to be from predominant Muslim regions. McDermott points out the ad excludes people of other races or with associations with other religions and causes.
“Representing terrorists, however, from only one ethnic or religious group, promotes stereotypes and ignores other forms of extremism,” writes McDermott.
