Is Bill a Brother?


Thinking back, Malcolm X and MLK's struggle seems as though it happened so long ago, and yet it's only because of the blood, sweat and tears that the brave African American people put into the Civil Rights Movement that what you see in the video above has become an almost tangible reality.

It may have taken 40 odd years, but it's happening.

I hope and pray that Muslim Americans, Muslim Britons, Muslim Europeans and all Muslim citizens of the world can overcome today's injustices and achieve our goal. Which, contrary to what Rupert Murdoch may tell you, my friends, is not world domination or destruction, but peace. Within our selves and with our fellow human beings. Because we are citizens of the world, and as I saw it termed, a 'mere accident of birth' and what the far right would make of it is irrelevant.

We are all human. Why is that so easily forgotten?
