Kent Davis BS: Wear Hijab (scarf) /Kufi (cap) on 9/11? (45) RE: BS: Wear Hijab (scarf) /Kufi (cap) on 9/11? 03 Sep 10


MtheGM,

Mousethief's post of 3:09 is correct.

McGrath of Harlow,

Wouldn't green be the most appropriate color to wear on St. Patrick's Day? Maybe it is different on the other side of the Atlantic. Perhaps Dublin resembles a sea of orange on March 17. I don't know. In the U.S., green clothing on St. Patrick's Day is used symbolically to honor Irish culture. Wearing orange would not make the same point at all.   

Greg F.,

If I wore a chiton all year long, no one would have any beef with my continuing to wear it on Hanukkah. If, however, I decided to wear special clothing on Hanukkah, wouldn't it be more appropriate to wear something specifically Jewish than to wear something specifically Greek? Someone who wore a chiton BECAUSE it was Hanukkah would be insulting the Jews.

If a man were to fly a rebel flag all year long "to honor the ideals of Southern culture", his motives might be suspect. If he flew that flag ONLY on Juneteenth, his motives would be clear. Such behavior, on that particular day, would be taken as an intentional insult to the victims of slavery.

Mousethief,

I don't know where you live but, here in the Southern Appalachian hills, people wearing hijabs and kufis are not mistaken for terrorists. They might be mistaken for doctors, since so many of the Muslims around here are in fact doctors. We tend to be well-armed and, if anyone were to be mistaken for a terrorist, he or she would not be long for this world. Obviously, since the local Muslims remain alive, no one is mistaking them for terrorists. Are the people where you live really so unsophisticated?

Kent
