Remember when absolutely nothing happened?

After 9/11 we were told that there was going to be a wave of anti-Muslim attacks in the US?

Didn't happen.

 After each successive terrorist attack, we were warned by serious news broadcasters that we shouldn't jump to conclusions about who the attackers were, and then talking heads warned about a backlash of anti-Muslim attacks in the US?

Didn't happen.

Where was this warning?

Gainesville, Fla.: A white man was beaten by a group of black men yelling “Trayvon.”
Oak Park, Ill.: Two blacks repeatedly punched a young white man; one of the two attackers told police he beat the victim because he was upset with the Trayvon case.
Toledo, Ohio: A 78-year-old man was severely beaten by a group of black youths while they shouted “this is for Trayvon.”
Washington, D.C.: Three black men robbed and beat a white man, stealing his wallet and iPhone. One of the black men said, “This is for Trayvon Martin” as they approached the victim.
Mobile, Ala.: A white man was attacked by 20 black adults who hit him with chairs, pipes, brass knuckles, and paint cans. As the group left, two witnesses reported one assailant said, “Now that’s justice for Trayvon.”
Baltimore, Md.: A group of black youths beat a Hispanic man while saying, “This is for Trayvon.”
Chester County, Pa.: Firefighters responded to an arson started at a white-owned business with the words “Kill Zimmerman” painted in red on the front wall.
Similar revenge attacks have reportedly occurred in Memphis, Tenn.Norfolk, Va.; and Sanford, Fla.
