I have seen a couple in my small town. One was on a small woman/female following behind a black man. The other was an India indian or something of that flavor.

proudlib sure as heck bailed from that thread fast, and yes it's a :bouncy: because it's way to convenient that it came right after the "Juan Gonzalez" story.

Well.....I live in the same city Proud2BLib does, and before I retired, my office was downtown......I've NEVER in nine years living here seen a woman wearing a burqa......not at the malls, not in the suburbs, not in the urban core.  Not once.....

I have seen black women wearing the Hijab, and some form of a "uniform" consisting of a light grey skirt (long), a white blouse buttoned to the neck, and "sensible shoes", however, I assume these are Muslims of the Louis Farakan variety.......

I've always thought of burkas as a form of torture ... not only that, but they're black!  imagine the heat ... I figure white at least would reflect.

Actually among most of the desert Arabs, the thawb, (meaning garment or robe in Arabic) is generally black, as it is actually cooler to wear in the sun than a white one (don't ask me why, but I've worn both and the black thawb is considerably cooler).  The colors vary by sect and tribe to some extent, and the color white is generally reserved for "formal" or ceremonial occasions, where the individual iis indoors exclusively.

When visiting western countries the Saudis (for example) will  almost exclusively wear a white thawb as an expression of formality and respect.  If travelling through the desert regions in their own country they will almost exclusively  wear black, or another very dark color, and black is most generally the color worn by the nomadic tribes (as mentioned above) for everyday wear.  I would assume that the same comfort level would also apply to the burqa, even though it would seem to be the opposite.

I saw a family of Muslims in the store today. Was I supposed to be afraid?

As I pulled into the parking lot, the news was on and they were reading the story about Juan Williams being fired from NPR. Not two minutes later, I was walking down the aisle in the store and two women and a small girl wearing burkas passed by me. My first thought was how nice it was to live in a diverse community. I can remember when seeing anyone who was not white was rare here.

Then I thought of Juan Gonzalez and wondered how he would react. I chuckled to myself when I realized this wasn't an airport so maybe he would not be afraid.

For many years now, there have been quite a few Muslims in the schools where I have taught. It never went through my mind that I should be afraid of them. After 9/11, I feared FOR them, knowing that those who feared them would make their lives as uncomfortable as possible.

These are such sad days in our once great country.
Leave it to a DUmmie to come with such a "nice" story. ::) :whatever: :whatever:
And yes, it once was a nice Country, before all you DUmmies/liberals/progressives started messing it up. And look what we have in the White Mosque now. The most anti-business, anti-American ever.
BUT,...have no fear. The true Americans will rebuild this Country to what it should be and get us back on the "right" track.
