Immigrant Neighbour

Your car is German. Your vodka is Russian. Your pizza is Italian. Your kebab is Turkish. Your democracy is Greek. Your coffee is Brazilian. Your movies are American. Your humor is Jewish. Your tea is Tamil. Your shirt is Indian. Your oil is Saudi Arabian. Your electronics are Chinese. Your numbers are Arabic and your letters are Latin. And you complain that your neighbor is an immigrant?

A simple example of ‘How Media Manipulates our Mind’

If the person who killed 90+ people in Norway was a Muslim, the press would have declared him as terrorist. For now though, he is just an ‘Assailant’, ‘Attacker’ (Reuters), ‘Gunman’ (BBC, CNN & Al Jazeera). Looks like ‘terrorist’ is a name reserved for Muslim? The US Dept of State calls it an an ‘Act of violence’, Not an ‘Act of Terrorism’.

This is how media manipulates our mind – though subtly.
