Black History Month

Black people have to face a lot of racism and discrimination in our societies, inter-racial as well as within Muslim communities. And then you have people who are black and Muslim, and we often tend to ignore their causes and struggles.

Not only do they have to deal with racism and discrimination because they’re black, they’re also dealing with Islamophobia because they’re Muslim. That’s why the hashtag #BeingBlackAndMuslim was trending on twitter and here’s a brief summary of the various tweets people shared.
