There's a lot of talk about Muslims in the wake of the ‪#‎CharlieHebdo‬ shooting in Paris. We talked to two Muslim Americans who are trying to turn the conversation around with their new podcast ‪#‎GoodMuslimBadMuslim‬

The latest from #GlobalNation : Emanuel Mudiay grew up in the Democratic Republic of Congo surrounded by war and corruption. He picked up a basketball when he was 3 years-old, moved to Texas, became a star player in college, and is now the #NBA 's number one draft pick- but first, he's going to play in China's basketball league.

When I was a kid I got in trouble with my 2nd grade teacher because I kept checking out "The Stinky Cheese Man." When she asked me why, I told her I didn't like any of the other books we had. Truth is, I couldn't really relate to the other books. I wasn't "Sarah, Plain and Tall" I was "Shefali, Dark and Short" I took comfort in books like "The Stinky Cheese Man" because he wasn't white, brown, or black. He was just cheese. I was pretty surprised that, decades later, we are still having issues with diversifying bookshelves in our public schools. So I wrote about it: #WeNeedDiverseBooks
