Shareef Abdur-Rahim. Charles Bilal. André Carson. Malcolm X. Jamilah Nasheed.

And Atlanta is a Black city. The ATL Muslim community is one of the country's most vibrant, welcoming, and inclusive that I have seen to date.
This discourse of "Muslims, stay in the US if you will help us fight terrorism" is disgusting on so many levels - racism and erasure are only PART of a broader problem with "Clash of Civilization" citizenship rhetoric.
Don't forget: Black American Muslims exist. Don't add a layer of extra racism to the Islamophobic GWOT nonsense of 'Culture Talk.' #Bye
