I had come across a video about Islam and I started to follow Spanish-language Muslim channels, where I learned more about the faith.

"Although the two men held what appeared to be diametrically opposing views on the struggle for equal rights, scholars say by the end of their lives their ideologies were evolving. King was becoming more militant in his views of economic justice for black people and more vocal in his criticism of the Vietnam War. Malcolm X, who had broken with the Nation of Islam, had dramatically changed his views on race during his 1964 pilgrimage to Mecca." - The Washington Post, 1/14/2018. #MLK#MalcolmX...

For various reasons, Muslims have accepted the false characterization that MLK and Malcolm represented Christianity and Islam respectively. King’s “turn the other cheek” philosophy is then understood as a distinctly Christian phenomenon, whereas retribution and vengeance is attributed to Islam. #MLKDay#RacialEquality... See MoreSee Less

...These negative views are translating into populist and even racist political activity designed to limit Muslims’ full agency in America — either politically or in terms of religious expression. A court this month ordered a city in Mississippi to permit Muslims to build a new mosque after repeated delays and claims of anti-Muslim prejudice throughout the permitting process. This is, lamentably, not an isolated incident. #AmericanMuslims #MLKDay... See MoreSee Less

What is clear is the make up of the first real wave of Muslims in the United States: African slaves of whom 10 to 15 percent were said to be Muslims.

Ever since insurrectionists invaded the Capitol, we’ve heard that Jan. 6 closed a chapter in American history.

This article provides a historical overview of the development of the U.S. Latina/o Muslim community. U.S. Latina/os have been converting to Islam since the 1920s.

Between 2011 and September 2020, 710 Indigenous people were reported missing across Wyoming, and that between 2000 and 2020, Indigenous homicide victims accounted for 21% of all homicides, though they make up only 3% of the state’s population.Despite such staggering statistics, the report, a first of its kind for Wyoming, found that white homicide victims were more likely than Native people to receive media coverage. And when Native cases did receive media attention, articles were more likely to include violent language or portray them in a negative light, compared with stories about white victims.#NativeAmericans #MissingWomen #NoJustice...
