Straining Family Ties: “I’m a Muslim”

Mahershala Ali…

“I’m A Muslim”

With the recent Muslim Ban imposed by Donald Trump, one thing is for certain, it brought about an overwhelming amount of confusion and disdain for one group in particular: Muslims.

Many celebrities have voiced their anger towards this act and many are showing support for a community that has received so much bad pre-judgement when it comes to life in America.

One “Moonlight” actor showed his support with an emotional acceptance speech as he was given the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Award – Mahershala Ali

While fighting back tears, Ali supplied his humbling testimony, “My mother is an ordained minister. I am a Mulsim. She didn’t do backflips when I called her and told her I converted 17 years ago. But we put things to the side and I was able to see her. She is able to see me. We love each other. The love has grown, and that stuff’s minutiae. It’s not that important.

Touché Mahersala.
