Darwish and Hanania take phone calls from listeners in Greater Detroit and Greater Washington DC on the recent slaughter of three Arabs who were Muslim in Chapel Hill. Was it a hate crime? Was it an act of terrorism? Or, was it the act of an individual as many American insist. But Americans describe every act of violence by an Arab or a Muslim as an act of terrorism and a hate crime. Is there hypocrisy here?

Has the biased mainstream American news media covered this slaughter the way they cover and exaggerate violence by Arabs and Muslims?

We also talk with callers about Christian-Muslim relations and defining the victims as Muslims or as Arabs.
