African-American Muslim woman to run for Congress

Welcome to "America"

(Blazing Cat Fur News Service)  -  Cheryl Sudduth is set to become the second Muslim woman to run for Congress in the United States.

Seeking to enter the House of Representatives to represent the 11th congressional district of California, she hopes to improve the public education system, and close the achievement gap among underserved and vulnerable members of the community.

As an African-American Muslim woman, she enjoys the support of many people in her community from African-American and Muslim minorities as well as women.

“We still need more women legislators ensuring women’s issues are priority,” she wrote on her Facebook page.

As a former youth worker, she has especially helped people with disabilities and social disadvantages get into work and training, enabling them to gain vital life skills.

Don't want to scare the voters
by looking too Muslim.

She has also been an activist against gender, ethnic, and racial discrimination in the workplace, as well as a campaigner for equal pay.

Here is the World Bulletin’s carefully cropped image.

Isn’t that neckline a bit low for a Muslim woman wearing a headscarf?

World Bulletin (hysterically Muslim site based in Turkey) has a seriously cropped image  from the same photo.

 It was so cropped I went looking for another photo and the found the one above.
