AFP runs this non-story about how Muslims in America are being discriminated against and are drifting toward Kerry (if not running). The whole thing is worth reading (to get your juices flowing for the day) but I especially like this: "Today, Muslims and Arabs are second-class citizens in the United States.
The parallels between the experiences of black Americans and Muslim Americans have not been lost on ordinary Muslims like computer engineers Suhl Kahn and Badar Hussain.
Blacks werent really Americans until 9/11, noted Kahn, in a wry observation on mainstream Americas shifting perceptions of us and them in the wake of the terror attacks on New York and Washington." Blacks werent Americans until 9/11! Did you get that.
