Intra-Religious Tensions Mount – NPR Broadcast

The idea of tensions between different ethnic groups in Islam is nothing new. We have seen or heard recenlty about the confrontations in California between Blacks and Arab store owners. To Blackamerican Muslims this is not a new topic but it may be newsworth to the general public. On NPR’s News & Notes with Ed Gordon, Gordon discusses this problem by looking to Detroit to see how problems between Arab and Blackamerican both flared up as well as how the two communities have tried to reach out to one another. The broadcast will be available after 4 p.m. Eastern Standard Time.
