    I think they need to include the fact that the Muslims offer it's members protection from the gangs in prison. It's not a stretch to say that many people join them for that protection.. coincidentally.. that's the same reason that people say they join other prison gangs. You have to throw that in there.. paint the whole picture.

    No doubt but there are many brothers that have become Muslims in prison after studying Islam and have stayed Muslims strong and firm after getting out.You always have your other side as well as in anything but I prefer to dwell on the postive.We all know about Imam Jamil[former H.Rap brown] who was introduced to Islam in prison and Brother Malcolm and there are many more.

    That link is about the very same youtube video you posted.


    This link is to PBS which is a site for the documentary.

    This is not the part I read.And I don't trust your motive for coming to the Islamic Forum.I have always stayed out of the Christian Forum except for one comment I made on a thread you started on forgiveness and my post was very respectful.And I would expect the same from you.

    My intent was not to disrespect; but, perhaps you didn't quite understand what the documentary is about.

    The word "Homegrown" is a term used to denote something "cultivated" locally.....like "homegrown weed/marijuana."

    So, this documentary "HOMEGROWN: Islam in Prison" is talking about how, if any, influence on terrorism (or Radicalism) in this POST-911 world does Islam have from U.S. prisons.
