"And if I were an American, I wouldn`t be so confident either." - Kim up the wall The local seat on the Houston City council, District F, which includes lots of Central American immigrants, many Hindus and lots of Jews, to say nothing of other hyphenated Americans, has two candidates running. The incumbent, a Republican, Mr. MJ Khan, and an independent, KA Khan. Both are immigrants from Pakistan. This race has not generated amy comments, by anyone, about the fact that two Muslims are running for the City Council seat held by one of them. I am not saying we don't have bigots in America, it is just that for the most part we are pretty open to people different than White Anglo Saxon ex-Protestants like myself. This is not 'political correctness' it is just a fact.
