US lawmaker calls on FBI to take down ‘racist’ anti-terrorism ads

After numerous complaints the FBI has decided to hals its anti-terrorism ads campaign in Seattle. Critics say the FBI’s “Faces of Global Terrorism” ads on billboards and buses people have to observe every day create the stereotype that terrorists are exclusively people with brown skin or Muslims.

The “Faces of Global Terrorism” ads featured 16 men wanted around the globe for terrorist activities.
Rep. Jim McDermott, a Washington Democrat, called the ads “racist” and demanded they should be pulled. “You look at the pictures, they’re all one color of folks,” he said as cited by The Washington Times.
According to the lawmaker, “terrorist come in all shapes and skin”. In McDermott’s opinion, it is wrong that an image of a person with brown skin pops up in one’s mind, whenever one speaks about terrorists.
