Hugging experiment

▶ Jung von Matt/Limmat: Pro Infirmis Get closer. – YouTube.

When this handicapped man, Fabian, rides on the bus, some people will not want to sit next to him. When he wears a bear costume everyone wants to hug him…

What they are saying in this campaign is: get closer, don’t be afraid of handicapped people, everyone should be able to get hugs without a disguise!

Muslim Hipsters show a new face of headscarves to the tune of a J-Zay song

Late last month, Rattani and a group of Mipsterz (= Muslim hipsters) released a video to the tune of the Jay-Z song “Somewhere in America” .

The video shows diverse Muslim women who choose to wear the hijab, or head covering, and do so with individual style. The women are also seen doing quirky, random things like skateboarding, walking around a forest, and other hipster-esque escapades.

These women are lawyers, doctors, athletes, mothers, shoppers, but above all they are powerful Muslim American women… and they are hipsters!

The video has sparked huge amounts of commentary, both positive and negative.
