Detroit School to Hold ‘Muslim Girls Only’ Prom

53

Didn’t hundreds of thousands march against segregation? It seems the left and the civil rights movement have come full circle.

This exalts Muslims as a special protected class — which is the status they enjoy in Islamic law.

This shows that sizable numbers of Muslims in the US have no intention of assimilating or mixing with the wider community.

I have no problem is members of the Muslim community who want to stage an all Muslim prom. Go for it. But a public school with taxpayer dollars? That’s a violation of the establishment clause.

It bears noting this is taking place in the city of Hamtramck. Geller Report readers are very familiar with Hamtramck It was the first American city to elect an all-Muslim city council. After the win, a cell phone video surfaced of one of the organizers declaring, “Today we show the [non-Muslims] and everybody else……”

I’ll be discussing with Sean Hannity today on his radio show. Tune in.

Detroit School to Hold ‘Muslim Girls Only’ Prom

By Ian Miles Cheong | Heat Street, May 12, 2017:

Segregation is all the rage these days. Under the banner of “social justice,” more and more schools are dividing their students into increasingly niche groups to provide them with “safe spaces” apart from each other—the polar opposite of inclusivity and integration.

A fundraiser for the Princess Prom

With the goal of creating a “safe space” in mind, a Detroit school has set out to hold a girls-only prom to celebrate traditional Muslim customs. It’s being created for girls who would otherwise be prohibited by their ultraconservative Muslim families from going to regular proms, where attendees are allowed to have fun and dance with members of the opposite sex in good old American tradition.

Hamtramck High School’s girls-only “Princess Prom” was first organized in 2012 by a group of five Muslim girls to give them the opportunity to go to a “safe space” prom. In 2016, 230 girls showed up. This year, they’re expecting at least 250 attendees.

According to Michigan Live, the event is “intended to create a safe space for Muslim girls who normally cover up in hijab to let their hair down in an environment with no boys and no cellphones.” In normal circumstances, Muslim girls and women from ultraconservative backgrounds are not allowed to expose their hair in public, among many other strict religious prohibitions for women. With a cellphone ban in place, no one will be able to share photos of them with their hair displayed to social media platforms like Instagram and Facebook.

But because many of the Americanized girls do not follow the religion to the letter, MLive reports that attendees can expect to show up in “extravagant gowns, shiny stilettos and flashy makeup and hair styles.”

That said, it’s telling how “letting their hair down,” an afterthought for most women, can somehow be thought of as “empowering” for anyone who lives in an American city. There’s no word on whether students who identify as “non-binary” or transgender will be allowed to attend the prom.
