    Reading Response #2 In “Making Spaces for Mosques,” Sharene Razack explores the struggles Muslim groups face in creating their own space in urban cities like Toronto and how issues of citizenship, racialization and identity intersect with that struggle. Razack uses the then East York Council’s objection to building a mosque in a vacant factory building to emphasize the “complicated politics of the production of urban space” (Razack, 189). The municipality justified their racist decision by pointing out that the mosque was short of twenty-six parking spaces out of the required 130 spaces (Razack, 186). Additionally, the municipality was also worried that they would lose $90,000 in taxes because places of worship had a tax exempt status (Razack, 188). This argument is completely nonsensical as not only does the municipality have a $60-million budget, but more importantly, religious groups have the right to practice their faith (Razack, 188). By depriving Muslims their right to establish their own…

    Satire About Space

    • 1145 Words
    • 5 Pages

    Space. More than just stars and stuff. Space is awesome. Both in scale and my opinion. Humans have dreamed of space travel, used stars for navigation and just generally drooled over the sky for thousands of years. There is a void surrounding us that is so large we call it “space”. But it’s not an empty, cavernous expanse, it’s filled with a multitude of stuff: from stars to planets, comets to black holes, there’s even a Super Sized Space Puddle.[1] Yet, some people aren’t interested in what is…

    • 4 Pages

    All across college campuses, there have been contradictory opinions about safe spaces. On the one hand, safe spaces are necessary as they encourage discussion, physical safety, and group solidarity. On the contrary, safe spaces limit student exposure and can cause discrimination between the majority and minority figures, which causes safe spaces to have a negative reputation directed towards them. They engage in many definitions, my definition of a ‘safe space’ is any physical and or non-…
