ALLAH MADE ME FUNNY: World Domination Tour (2011-2012)
Nearly every human alive on earth today is acutely aware of the existence of Muslims. It is unavoidable. Largely owing to the media’s constant association of Muslims—and their religion, Islam—with political violence and terrorism, most people live in a state of unconscious (or even conscious) fear of Muslims. This underlying insecurity is exploited by some, and deliberately spun into a state of paranoia and even outright hatemongering by ideologues, media personalities, right-wing pundits, Islamophobes, and fanatics of various stripes.
Such broad-sweeping attitudes are mistaken, however. There are roughly 1.6 billion Muslims worldwide—roughly one out of every 5 people on the planet. Naturally, they represent the same diversity of thought, culture, opinion, conscience, religiosity, spirituality, good, and evil that is found across the entire human family, regardless of religious background, tradition, or affiliation. However, the entertainment industry of Hollywood and other purveyors of media content rarely, if ever, portray everyday Muslims as they really are: uncontroversial and peaceful. The 1.6 billion Muslims worldwide who feel that they are never really represented in a fair and balanced manner have finally spoken: they demand representation. They are sick of being objects of media coverage, and are ready to finally become the subjects. The time for passive consumption is over; it is the dawn of a new age for Muslims: active production. ENTER: “ALLAH MADE ME FUNNY: WORLD DOMINATION TOUR”…
