#MipsterzPosted: December 9, 2013
The “Mipsterz” video has been making waves in the American Muslim community. What are your thoughts about the video?
The range of commentary from the Muslim community seemed to range from “beautiful, cool, diverse and vibrant” to “what’s the point?” (what’s the point of any music video?) to some terrible shaming of the women involved in front of and behind the cameras.
Some commentary we appreciated.
“Somewhere in America?” by Professor Su’ad Abdul Khabeer; “Somewhere on the Internet, Muslim women are being shamed” by Rabia Chaudry; “Somewhere in America, Muslim women are ‘cool’” by Sana Saeed; and “Somewhere in America, Muslim women are freaking out & fitting in” by Nadia S. Mohammad.
AltMuslimah also interviewed the filmmakers.
