    As a Somali-Muslim I can see hes bit nervous because of the racial prejudice hot seat put on middle- easterns and Arabs. Hope he succeeds in life.

    Yeah islam is a very generous religion unless if you eat or drink or smoke in public during Ramadan you get lashed!
    And please don’t try to correct me, I’m muslim born and have lived in a Muslim country my whole life, so i know what I’m talking about!

    Funny he doesn’t mention Houston is one of the main locations for child trafficking. So yeah, some stars are from there.. who cares. How about using platform to get something horrible, eradicated
