Sunday night, Mahershala Ali made an inspiring speech at the SAG Awards. While receiving Best Supporting Actor award for his performance in Moonlight, he spoke about being a muslim in the wake of Trump’s controversial ban. He stated,
"When we get caught up in the minutiae, the details that make us all different, there’s two ways of seeing that. You can see the texture of that person, the qualities that make them unique, or you can go to war about it, say, ‘That person is different from me, I don’t like you, so let’s battle.’ My mother is an ordained minister, I’m a Muslim. She didn’t do backflips when I called her to tell her I converted 17 years ago. But I tell you now, we put things to the side, I’m able to see her, she’s able to see me, we love each other, the love has grown. That stuff is minutiae. It’s not that important."
