You Thought You Could Show a Muslim Man Killing a Gay Guy on TV and Nobody Would Notice?

Will the British show EastEnders find itself trafficking in honor killings? The affair between Christian Clark and Syed Masood, a Muslim character is already in tatters, thanks to Masood marrying a woman. And in upcoming episodes, his wife finds out, and Clark is attacked by a Muslim man. Is it Masood? Masood’s father? Masood’s wife’s father? We don’t know! What we do know: You don’t get down this plot path and not expect everyone to expect you to traffic in stereotypes!
