Obama, please phone the Muslim ‘street vendor hero’ too

Hamid Dabashi

Hamid Dabashi lauds president for calling two street vendors who reported Times Square car. But, Dabashi says, a third vendor, a Muslim immigrant, says he was first to spot the Pathfinder. Muslim-American hero defies the “terrorist” stereotype, he writes mentioning that Muslim Americans living with prejudice would be buoyed by Obama calling him.
