Def Jam Records co-founder Russell Simmons will host a rally dubbed ‘I Am a Muslim Too’ on Sunday in Times Square to protest President Donald Trump’s recent executive action on immigration.
EDITOR’S NOTE: Race baiter Russell Simmons wants you to “be a Muslim” this weekend, and make a stand for “African Americans, women, Latinos, Asians and LGBTQ”. But what he does not want you to do is to support our president, and he calls white males “the oppressor”, which leads me to believe that at least part of his rally is an incitement against white males.
Women’s March on Washington organizer Linda Sarsour and MuslimGirl founder Amani al-Khatahtbeh will speak at the event, along with Rabbi Marc Schneier of the Foundation for Ethnic Understanding and Imam Shamsi Ali of the Jamaica Muslim Center.
“Everyone except white privileged males are in immediate danger,” Simmons said in a statement. “African Americans, women, Latinos, Asians and LGBTQ are all at risk, but there is no freedom in that privileged status either because the spirit of the oppressor is oppressed as well.”
“We are living in a time when unity will make America great,” he added. “This is a special moment for all Americans of good will to band together to promote the kind of compassion and equality for others that we want for ourselves.”
The rally is scheduled to run from noon until 4 p.m. on Sunday.

Earlier this month, President Trump introduced an executive order that temporarily prohibited immigration from seven Middle Eastern countries known to be hotbeds of terrorism. The order was later blocked by judges from the 9th Circuit Court.
“As a yogi, I feel and believe all Americans should feel personally threatened by Trump’s choices to target Muslims,” the 59-year-old rap mogul and entrepreneur said. “Targeting any one of us is in fact targeting all of us.”
“The people united cannot be divided,” he added. “See you there.” source
