Haji Mohammed's Cabin

Katrina inspires Iranian director to stage “Uncle Tom's Cabin”

“I believe that Blacks living in the U.S. are still suffering from discrimination. Based on my direct observation and studies, the view considering American Blacks as second-class citizens is still common in that country. One and a half centuries after ‘Uncle Tom's Cabin’ was written, Hurricane Katrina showed that discrimination is still alive. This fact made me more determined to stage the play,” he added.
Nevermind that this play is from a (thankfully) bygone era that is more of a piece of history rather than a relevant social commentary concerning modern American society. But hell, you can't discount the sheer propaganda value, and it's America-hate that's in vogue, don'cha know?

I'm sure we'll read a positive review in the N.Y. Times.

By the way, did I mention that Mohammed was in the top 20 names for children born in England and Wales? Just think, in ten years British toy stores might have a big market selling bomb belts!
