Judging Lindsey Graham by his words

I read a short post about Lindsey Grahams’s pool room education. He said,“Everything I learned about Iranians I learned working in the pool room,” he said. “I met a lot of liars, and I know Iranians are liars.”

What do we call someone who judges a people by the actions of a few individuals? We call them a racist.

There are good and bad Iranians. This is our reality. There are no universally bad or good peoples or countries. We may not like the leadership or politics of Iran, but stating that all Iranians are liars is unethical and unbecoming of a United States Senator. Shame on you Lindsey Graham. We are better than this. Try to live up to the standard or find another job.
