Cenk On CNN: Xenophobia VS. Religious Freedom

PZ-Cenk-Mosque Air America Radio talk show host Cenk Uygur of The Young Turks joined Crystal McCrary Anthony and Niger Innis on tonight's "Paula Zahn Now" to discuss the hysteria surrounding a lawsuit being filed by Pastor O'Neal Dozier and others to keep a mosque from being built in a predominately black neighborhood in Pompano Beach, Florida. Cenk points out the absurdity of the lawsuit and how it is driven by fear, hatred and ignorance.

Zahn: "Are you at all sensitive to their fears about safety?"

Uygur:"No. Okay, because then it's the same argument they would have made back in the civil rights era. I don't know, you know there are some blacks who are violent, and so we gotta be wary of all blacks. And it's a terrible argument."
