Small questions have a powerful impact if they go viral. Cut is an American Internet channel whose goal is to spread stories through humor, seriousness, and a sense of reality, by bringing uncomfortable questions to the public one at a time.
Its Lineup series tries to tackle stereotypes and prejudices through a experiment of visual recognition that reminds us each group’s diversity.
In this example, Muslims and non-Muslims are asked to guess who among them is a Muslim.
Long beards, skin color, scarves, body hair, the number of siblings, or the fingernails’ color are not critical to find the correct answer.
This is just another example to demystify the image of Islam as a monolithic block resistant to change, one of the signs exposed by the Runnymede Trust in 1997.
