Rep. Keith Ellison says anti-Muslim speech won't end without political clout
Americans can speak hatefully about Muslims in ways that would never be tolerated if they were speaking about blacks, Rep. Keith Ellison of Minnesota, told reporters Tuesday.
At a news conference to discuss Islamophobia in the U.S., Ellison, the first Muslim elected to Congress, said the ability to promote bigotry and discrimination against Muslims with impunity will not end until Muslims "build up political cachet."
Ellison spoke alongside Rep. Andre Carson of Indiana, the second Muslim elected to Congress.
