    From my memory, it didn't affect Iranians living in the US at all.

    Everyone knew it was the Iranian government that was being a bunch of jack@sses, not the Iranian people.

    Unfortunately, it seems this bit of common sense was quickly worn away. During the 80s and 90s, anyone who looked Asian would be assumed to be Japanese, and be the target of harassment by unemployed auto-workers. Then of course 9/11 did happened, and now everyone hates Muslims...
