Man Mistaken for Muslim Harassed at NY Anti-Mosque Rally

Racism is alive and well in America as a black man is nearly lynched by the baying crowds – his wrong doing – he looked like a Muslim. Islamophobia is the acceptable face of racism.

An African-American man who was mistakenly thought to be Muslim was harassed at an anti-mosque rally yesterday in New York City. A crowd shouting “no mosque here” confronted the man and called him a “coward.” The man is led away by rally organizers while one man shouts “Muhammad is a p*g.” One person shouted “he must have voted for Obama.” When some rally participants seek to defuse the confrontation, one man says, “we’re against the Muslims, not each other.”
