The (Anti) Black Ass Roots of America’s Islamophobia
Vanessa Taylor

Wow. I have to admit, I did not know anything about the early history of Islam in the United States. Grew up in a small town in the far northwest and had no idea that there were black Muslims in the U.S. from the time of slavery. I apologize for not seeing the battle going on before the advent of this administration. I hope those of us sunk in our complacency stay woke the hell up. And I hope you will be willing to allow us to stand with you. Because we are stronger together. Even if some of us are pretty damn late to the battle. Think of us as reinforcements.
