Forty percent of Muslims say they have a college degree or more, compared to the 29 percent of Americans overall. Muslim women in America… are statistically likely as Muslim men to hold college or postgraduate degrees. Muslim women also report monthly household incomes more or nearly equal to men’s, compared to women and men in other faith groups.

Dr. John Esposito, The Future of Islam


Because we’re oppressed, right?

Because we’re married young and just have babies, right?

Because we’re subjected to a patriarchal faith, right?

Because we’re uneducated, right?

Right?

But if you try and protest the murder of a black man, you get tear gas fired at you.

I was wondering if David Letterman would join in to publicly pay tribute to his friend Robin Williams and this was so heartwarming. I’ll miss his Late Show. And another great reminder of how brilliantly talented and brilliantly warm Robin Williams was.
