Last quote by Kumail Nanjiani

Islamophobia is really on the rise right now. It never really went away, but it's really having a moment right now. Islamophobia is kind of like 'Will & Grace.' It was huge a while ago, and then we thought it was gone and dead, and now it's back, and bigger than ever. Thursdays on NBC.feedback
