The New York Times has a depressing story about the tense relationship between Muslim immigrants from West Africa and African-American in a poor section of the Bronx. Resentment, mistrust, post-9/11 Islamophobia and just plain ignorance, are some of the factors at the heart of the dispute, which in some cases has turned violent. (In the image above some of the immigrants meet with police to report and discuss hate crimes against them.)

The story is accompanied by a photo slideshow.
