The truckers, who haul hazardous material across 48 states, explained how easy it is to spot “Islamics” on the road: just look for their turbans. Quite a few of them are truck drivers, says William Westfall of Van Buren, Ark. “I’ll be honest. They know they’re not welcome at truck stops. There’s still a lot of animosity toward Islamics.”

Eddie Dean of Fort Smith, Ark., also has little doubt about his ability to identify Muslims: You can tell where they’re from. You can hear their accents. They’re not real clean people.”
