Mistaken for Muslim

Some of you may have already heard of Anida Yoeu Ali and seen her work, and those who haven’t will be blown away by the power of her creativity. I first heard of it in on philosufi. This artist put together the 1700% Project,

“a collaborative project utilizing art as intervention. Specifically, the 1700% Project strategically intervenes against the racial profiling and rise of violence and hate directed at Muslims in a post 9/11 era. The project challenges monolithic stereotypes of a ‘Muslim’ identity while acknowledging the significance of historical persecution.”

This video is just one part of that project… and it is definitely worth watching.

So, what do you guys think?

  1. I watched this a couple of months ago, shared it on my profile too. Absolutely love it! So thought-provoking and amazing.

  2. I didn’t know about this video. I likes! Will post it on my Facebook Page. Thanks for sharing.

  3. muzzies need to get out of the US/europe while they still have the chance. Soon people like geert wilders and pamella gellar will come into power and put all the mAUZlims in concentration camps and then u will realise that all the red flags were real ….

    • Somehow I don’t think it will help if all the Muslims (or all the people who have been mistaken for Muslim) simply leave. But if Pamela Geller “comes into power”, I’m leaving too!

      In all seriousness, I think what needs to happen is education and outreach.
