A young Arab American woman and her family are demanding that Dearborn's Henry Ford Centennial Library temporarily ban a middle-aged man who directed racial insults toward the girl at the library last month.
Alia Sareini, 17, said an older white man told her, "Your heritage is all about terrorism" while she was heading to the library's second floor on Jan. 13.
Sareini was wearing a t-shirt containing Che Guevara's portrait. The man asked her if she knew who Guevara was. "He is a revolutionary," she replied. He responded by saying that Guevara was a terrorist. The conversation escalated, ending in the man insulting the 17 year-old's racial background after telling her that she should learn more about history.
