Social justice and standing up to systematic oppression is a rich part of American Muslim history. If American Muslims are to reject #BlackLivesMatter, we are effectively rejecting the legacy of people like Malcolm X and Muhammad Ali, pillars of the history of Islam in America.

"What is being called rock 'n' roll today, Madonna, Lady Gaga, Beyonce, it's all the same as the stuff we did way back in the day. The only thing that's changed is the beat.

Why The Mayweather Victory Doesn't Matter

Fans of boxing deserve champions not only inside the ring, but also outside of it. Mayweather may have won this fight but it doesn't really matter.
