Russell Simmons has joined forces with the My Fellow American project to speak about the “I am a Muslim” day and the importance of all Americans to speak up against anti-Muslim sentiment in our country.
According to its website,
My Fellow American is an online film and social media project that calls upon concerned Americans to pledge and spread a message that Muslims are our fellow Americans. It asks people of other backgrounds to pledge, and share a real life story about a Muslim friend, neighbor, or colleague that they admire. Using the power of social media, My Fellow American seeks to change the narrative – from Muslims as the other, to Muslims as our fellow Americans.

“Our foundation has grown over the years, and is very dear to my heart just as much as my career, “ Common said. “One of the things I always say to people is to ‘strive for greatness in any and everything you do,’ and the women we are honoring represent that and so much more.”
During last night’s Bid To Save the Earth at Christie’s Auction House in New York City, Nicki Minaj took a break off her ‘I Am Music II’ world tour with Lil’ Wayne to lend her voice for a good cause. The auction focused on raising money and bring awareness toward the preservation of the earth. Before her performance the singer spoke with Vogue.com about her interest in the cause and her fashion influences.
What are you wearing tonight? Is it one of your favorite designers?
Yes, it is—it’s Alexander Wang. It’s all black, of course, and I knew I needed to get my green on, so that’s how I came up with the green-and-white hair. I have a lot of designers I like right now; I really like Donatella Versace. She sent me a few beautiful things recently to consider wearing to the Grammys and, even though I ended up wearing Givenchy, I believe in supporting women. I’m all about the girl power.
Why did you decide to get involved in Bid to Save the Earth?
I know that a lot of my fans are young and I know I have the power to influence and inspire them by my own actions. I thought that if I got involved in a cause that I felt was important, then maybe they would take the time to research it and find ways they could get involved and make a difference. It’s good to shine a positive light.
