On American Muslims and Blackness

Saraji Umm Zaid, queen blogger at Sunni Sister, wrote a timely piece about the racial tensions in our American umma and how Blackness is viewed in mainstream American culture.

It's a powerful read.

Salaams. Thanks for posting this. I don't think I was reading blogs way back then, so I had missed this post. UmmZ rocks always, but this was great. Sad that it is over a year old and still just as true today as when she first wrote it.
