I ran across this picture here. It was taken in 1998 in South Minneapolis and it is a group of Somali students praying at Our Redeemer Lutheran Church (whose generosity and good will I and every decent American should applaud) across the street from Roosevelt High School during the time of the Friday prayer. What struck me was the number of people in the photo all of whom are students and primarily Somalis. Moreover, this picture is 16 years old and more than likely the numbers of Muslim students have increased as has the fear their mere presence generates in the hearts and minds of America’s #Islamophobes. America’s call for homeless refuse yearning to be free doesn’t apply to people of color who lie outside the Judea-Christian ethic. American hypocrisy will be America’s downfall.
