Black Muslims in Ottawa upset over lack of diversity at Muslim conference

I.Lead is an annual conference put together with the help of various mosques in Ottawa. This year, there are seven speakers — five men and two women — who will address the conference’s theme “With hardship comes ease.”

However, none of them are black.

    So Blacks were approached to speak and none were available to speak. So therefore it’s Racism. Yes that sounds reasonable

    • Maurice Miner

      It really is raaaacist, as I am glad you have logically established. We need significant funding efforts to ensure that black/lesbian/disabled Muslims are enabled to attend conferences such as this – I mean, for Allah’s sake, white or semi-white males of the Mohemmedan bent are seriously last decade.

      Power to the peeps!

      This is about Racism: there is no ‘optional’ involved, everything is required, everything is demanded, there is no ‘free will’ allowed.

    “Oh dear … how sad … never mind!”


  • “Daigle believes there are all types of experts that could have been invited”


  • Sharkibark

    The conference’s theme is “With Hardship Comes Ease.”

    War is peace.
    Freedom is slavery.
    Ignorance is strength.

    So will there be a suicide bombing in protest?? Besides, in Islamic culture blacks are merely slaves and have no right to anything.

    The reason might be found in an Arabic dictionary

        2. Black-skinned, negro, Central African

    Like Harvard, they need their own ceremonies.

    She should file a human rights complaint. I’d follow that with amusement.
