PC Leadership

My current study material is, um, yes, "Fundamentals of Organizational Behavior".  Try sticking your teeth in that doughnut and not hitting the hole!  Anyway, being college material it is, of course, PC to a 'T'.  However this humdinger from the 12th edition of Organizational Behavior by Stephen P. Robbins and Timothy A. Judge can't go uncontested:
The terrorist attacks of September 11th brought home to millions of Muslims living in the United States the hurtful power of stereotypes.
What stereotypes? Like the one's where Muslims like to hijack planes and fly them into buildings? I think the thousands of people they killed and their families are well aware of the 'hurt' of that stereotype.  The issue with stereotypes is, alas, that they're mostly true.
