Ellison wants Juan Williams to apologize for comment about Muslims

Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison, who is a Muslim, was on MSNBC’s “The Ed Show,” where he called on former NPR reporter Juan Williams to apologize for his “unAmerican” comment about Muslims. Williams was fired from NPR after making the comment and then later hired by Fox News with a multimillion-dollar contract.

    One thing that Juan Williams forgot to consider is that some people out there could very well be nervous with him too because he might appear muslim to them. I would certainly like to know how he would feel about that? And would he then take back what he said? At Fox, to Bill O’Reilly?
