If true. This story had a familiar feel so I took a quick look on-line: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2016/06/21/thousands-shared-this-perfect-story-about-a-man-confronting-a-mu/
In the original book "Urban Legends," Burnvand notes that instead of saying "once upon a time" we now often start our tall tales with "I read in the newspaper."
For what it's worth, I've personally witnessed virtually the exact same exchange played out between a southern "Good 'Ol Boy" and a young Cherokee man whom he mistook for an Arab. So even if this one anecdote is an urban legend, it still rings soundly true to life.I simply cannot fathom what would drive someone to get angry at another person merely for speaking a different language. The only thing I can think of that makes any sense is that they must be incredibly insecure and fearful of others.
