When stings go wrong!

What happens when you stage a racial sting and no one throws a lynching? A group of liberal, northern white collage folks go to Alabama to document the prejudice of southern, country whites (who just everyone knows is a hotbed of white race supremacy) against Muslims and fail to get the confrontations that they hoped for.

Racism does still live but mostly in the minds of coastal liberals.

As a native Alabaman comments in the Headlines thread that he’d "feel safer in Birmingham in a turban than in San Francisco in a Bush/Cheney t-shirt". Why don't these documentarists try that and see what happens?
