Support the MBTA for rejecting to post a racist anti-Muslim advertisement

    1. Petition by

      Dana Sajdi

      Cambridge, MA

In accordance with their advertising guidelines, the MBTA has rejected to post an ad by the American Freedom Defense Initiative. The ad read “In any war between the civilized man and the savage, support the civilized man...Support Israel. Defeat jihad.” The American Freedom Defense Initiative is suing the MBTA (see this Boston Globe editorial)

Please sign this petition in support of the MBTA for their ethical and consistent stance and for refusing to adopt this racist and sexist ("civilized man"!!) slogan. Also, be green: get out of your cars, take the T.

      It is the civilized PERSON (or business) that avoids racist and religious bigotry. Good work, MBTA! Thank you!

      Racist ads should never be allowed on public venues.
