30% of American Muslims are Black. Every 28 hours a Black person is killed by someone employed or protected by the US Government. What affects the Black community affects us—all life matters, Black life matters. It is crucial that we take a good look at what is going on in the working class city of #Ferguson and why it is important for the Muslim community to stand in solidarity with our Black brothers, sisters, neighbors, friends and coworkers.
“Racism in this country is still far too prominent at the government and law enforcement levels. #Ferguson right now looks like a scene out of the 60s. Young African Americans are being gunned down unarmed and young Latinos deported unjustly. We lead the world in incarcerated citizens. What value system are we trying to project on the rest of the globe?” – Omar Suleiman
