An Interesting And Truthful Quote

Words worth repeating by --Prof. As'ad Abu Khalil, UC Berkeley

"Those two groups are in very high demand in US media and popular cultures:African-Americans who are willing to say that there is no racism in the US, and who blame African-Americans for the consequences of institutional inequality and racism; and the second group are those Muslims who are willing to blame Islam and all Muslims (and even Falafil) for the violent deeds of individual Muslims. I mean it.

If you are either African-Americanor Muslim try to send an op-ed piece (including what I have said) and you will be instantly published. Try it. You may also be in top demand if you happen to belong to both groups simultaneously. In that case, an avenue will be named after you.
