For those who have lived here long enough, you remember him from the original post of 2008, because – oddly – I receive references about ‘the stand-up guy’ regularly from you. That we all have one, and so-and-so is yours and how do we go back to having that rightfully placed instinct to find these men as we get older…?
Some days back he sent me a message asking “What would you think of a large, white, non-Muslim man sporting a hat that reads salaam? Does that send positive vibes or is it just weird?”
I all-capped my response that he DO IT ASAP ASAP ASAP and then send me a photo of said doing.
So he did, with the intention of combating Islamophobia in a very loud, clear and direct way, while in-tandem showing his solidarity to Muslims.
On the back of which is the English translation of the word on the front – Peace:
Via One Love, you too can make this same statement by buying your own hat and wearing it as proudly as him.
