(NaturalNews) More than a decade after the events of 9/11,racial discrimination against brown-skinned people is alive and well here in the West, as evidenced by an absurd case in Canada last month that should have you shaking your head in disbelief.
Saad Allami, a telecommunications sales manager and Canadian citizen of Moroccan descent, says he was improperly arrested by Quebec police and accused of being a terrorist for giving staff "a pep talk [...] about 'blowing away' the competition."
In a lawsuit he has filed against the Procureur General (attorney general) of Quebec, the Surete du Quebec (Quebec police) and the arresting officer, Sgt. Jayson Gauthier, Allami - who manages 2,000 sales reps in seven countries - says "he was illegally arrested and detained on January 24, 2011" after texting the phrase in question in advance of a trade show in New York City. Further, the suit says he "was absurdly and wrongfully accused of being a terrorist, and suffered financial, psychological and moral damages, and significant damages to his reputation." He is seeking $100,000 in damages.
