Walid speaks at the University of Michigan - Ann Arbor at the Political Science Department regarding political activism

Last night at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, Michigan, a forty-five minute presentation was given regarding the Islamic textual basis as well as the incumbent societal circumstances, which summon American Muslims to become more politicaly active in Michigan.

Topics of discussion also included the Islamic basis for supporting affirmative action, the need to address political apathy and suggestions of how the Muslim community can become more involved in mainstream American issues.

Unfortunately, the audio for this lecture was mistakenly erased.

The issue of the Michigan Civil Rights Initiative (MCRI) and it's attempted rape of affirmative action in the State of Michigan should have been the main topic of discussion.

On October 11th at 6 PM, Dr. Sherman Jackson, a professor at the University of Michigan - Ann Arbor, is scheduled to give a lecutre on "Islam & Affirmative Action."

Affirmative Action is only one of several concerns that the Muslim community currently has. Due to the on-going "War on Terror," Muslims suffer negative residual effects that take on a higher-priority at this time.
