Rainbow. "There were Two of Them..."

Rainbow. There were Two of Them...

Dramatic light, wet pavement, rainbow, the towers of a Catholic Church and even sneakers dangling from a wire were readily the elements of a good photograph. I immediately pulled over, changed the lens and stepped out of my car.

The Muslim gentleman that you see in the photograph suddenly stopped walking when he noticed me with a camera. I pointed at the rainbow and shouted "there's a rainbow". He responded, "There were two of them back there".

The St. Michael Parish you see in the background was the site of the Philadelphia Nativist Riots of 1844.

Nativism in the United States is absurd because it is ultimately advocated by older and more established immigrants who forget their origins; the persecutions and the exclusions that they themselves experienced.
