ROYAL OAK (WKZO) -- Target Sports in Royal Oak will no longer be selling targets that area Muslim groups find offensive.  The targets are of a skeleton dressed in traditional Muslim attire.

In the Detroit Free Press, Dawud Walid with the Council on American Islamic Relations says that the issue is not just one of being offended.

"In metro Detroit, there are law-abiding, peaceful Muslims walking the streets of Hamtramck and Detroit who are dressed like this in the target," said Walid.  "It is problematic.  There seems to be a dehumanization of Muslims."
