A few weeks have passed since Juan Williams, the erstwhile NPR commentator, said that he gets nervous when he sees passengers in “Muslim garb” on an airplane. A website called Pictures of Muslims Wearing Things has exposed just how ludicrous the concept of “Muslim garb” is. Muslims live all over the world in different social strata, and dress codes vary significantly.
The creator of the site writes:
Former NPR analyst Juan Williams, among other ignorant people, has an irrational fear of Muslims, and thinks you can identify them based on what they look like. Here I will post pictures of Muslims wearing all sorts of things in an attempt to refute that there is such a thing as “Muslim garb” or a Muslim look.
