    He says he is Muslim, so we must assume that he is Muslim. Otherwise, it would mean that ISIS supporters are not Muslim as well.

    My guess is that he has left the religion but doesn't say it for electoral purpose. It's however impossible to know that.
    There are plenty of self described Christians where it is basically a glorified coffee morning meat up every Sunday.

    He was "ex-communicated" by various mosques for voting in favour of "same sex marriage"....
    Unfortunately, "ex-communcation" works in a slightly different way than in Catholicism. Random Imams from Bradford, albeit being a very pious Muslims I'm sure, are not 'qualified' to make baseless takfirs

    Even Isoccers on this forum have hurled all sorts of labels at him, including "munafiq" (hypocrite), but that does not make him a 'Murtad' (an apostate).

    Obama is definitely black but Khan is not definitely a muslim. Ambiguous at best.
    He is mixed raced

    Overall, minor details aside, I do agree with you. This is nothing but pointless identity politics, and yes this type of politics is disgusting.

    Even though only a minority of European Americans voted for Obama while a majority of Black and Asian Americans voted for Obama.
    That's unfounded rubbish.

    If Hillary Clinton becomes the next US president, will some people say something like " Wow! Hillary is now the first white female president of United States of America!" ?

    Anything about feminism or racism?

    You should. :spank:

    He is just the new mayor of London. He is also the son of a Pakistani immigrant. I think your parents may have mentioned that fact.

    Personally I don't find it that noteworthy. There have only ever been 2 other London mayors before him. It's a relatively new position. He's the first Muslim mayor out......3. Big deal.
