Lowe's Home Improvement has found itself facing a backlash after the retail giant pulled ads from a reality show called All-American Muslim about American Muslims. The show airs on TLC (The Learning Channel) Sundays @ 10/9c and, in my opinion, is eye-opening and respectful to Muslims as well as all Americans without advocating any kind of violence or alleged 'Islamic agenda.'  The reality show simply shows 5 American Muslim families leading their lives in Dearborn, Michigan--a Detroit suburb with a large Muslim and Arab-American population--and is both educational and entertaining.  Here is the show's trailer:



Lowe's stopped advertising on TLC's "All-American Muslim" after a conservative Florida group known as the Florida Family Association complained, saying the program was "propaganda that riskily hides the Islamic agenda's clear and present danger to American liberties and traditional values."

Calling Lowe's decision "un-American" and "naked religious bigotry," Sen. Ted Lieu, D-Torrance, told The Associated Press he would also consider legislative action if Lowe's doesn't apologize to Muslims and reinstate its ads. The senator sent a letter outlining his complaints to Lowe's Chief Executive Officer Robert A. Niblock.  It is now up to Lowe's to respond and they seem to sadly be sticking to their decision.

"The show is about what it's like to be a Muslim in America, and it touches on the discrimination they sometimes face. And that kind of discrimination is exactly what's happening here with Lowe's," Lieu said.
