I Speak for Myself volume 2 available for pre-order

The second volume of I Speak or Myself is now available for pre-order on Amazon:

The book, like its predecessor, is a collection of essays from American Muslims, in this case men. I am honored to be a contributor to this book, along with Svend White, Shahed Amanullah, Aamer Jamali, and many other good friends. The foreword is written by Representative Keith Ellison, who is the single member of Congress I most admire (with Bernie Sanders being a close second).

The reason this is important is that it provides a vehicle to highlight ordinary muslims, and in particular that most terrifying variety, the muslim male. The number of essays (45) provides a huge cross-section of voices, but the common threads of patriotism, manhood, fatherhood, and angst will be familiar to every American male, not just muslims. With the deep pockets of the Islamophobia industry and the War on Muslims by the Republican Party , there’s a real need for books tha tell our side of the story like this, the previous book, and others like Ayesh Mattu’s Love, Inshallah.

Here’s the complete contributor list:

Hello,

My name is Abby – I was reading your blog and was wondering if perhaps you could help me out. I am doing some research on racial profiling at airports, obviously Muslims are the community which are affected the most, but the issue itself (in my opinion at least) is seldom talked about let alone researched. I seem to be struggling to get the opinions of Muslims, and at the moment many of the answers are approving of racial and religious profiling, justifying it as ‘necessary’. Firstly I was wondering if perhaps you could take a few minutes to fill the questionnaire out; and secondly, and I realize this is a bit much to ask from a stranger, but I was wondering if you would be able to post it on your blog or another social media site such as your Facebook page, Twitter or e-group if you have one. Of course, the latter is just a suggestion but I would be more than appreciative if you could just fill it out yourself. Here is the link:

I am with the University of the West of England – the questionnaire itself has been accepted by an ethics committee and is completely anonymous. I hope you can help.

Kind regards,
Abby
