One photo says a thousand words, but I have o say that photo wouldn't be considered unusual in any way in Manchester.

So you only posted this about Muslims and not diversity?

Are those black and white playing on the same team not as important Ben?

Look, like you its important to show, that most Muslims are not terrorists, but there is problems with some beliefs in Islam, which should never be brushed under the carpet or denied.

Its good to see pictures like this, but I could show pictures of Islamist's stoning to death a woman for adultery.

What would then be proved?

Would it prove that all Muslims support such barbaric acts on adulterers?

What should have been your heading, was unity in Texas, as we already have diversity and have had for years in the west. That is far more important and better to express for when Muslims are wrongly stigmatized alongside terrorists. Its also important, that all united speak out on bad or poor beliefs. No matter if religious or not. That they unite behind the well being and equality of all people. That religion is a personal belief, and should not be forced onto others.

I like photos of real people doing real things...kind of capturing a moment in time that's not trying to be perfection.
