Juan Williams, who was fired from his job at NPR for making disparaging comments about Muslims only to get a new job at Fox News, said that he gets nervous on airplanes when he sees people in “Muslim garb.” So what is Muslim garb, anyway? That’s the question a new blog, Pictures of Muslims Wearing Things, hopes to address – while shattering some stereotypes in the process. The site includes photos of famous and non-famous Muslims wearing everything from aviator sunglasses (rapper Everlast), an evening gown (model Yasmin Warsame, left), and a football uniform (New Orleans Saints player Usama Young). A photoblog that seems simple but helps bust stereotypes? Yes, please.
