Islamophobia Is and Isn't Racism:
What We Can Do To Change Things
The Maydan Institute
There’s a lot about Islamophobia that we can call racist, but many people who ask hard questions about Islam and Muslims insist they are not racists. How do we make sense of criticism of Islam? What is fair, what is unfair, and how do we present our side of the story?
Join Haroon Moghul, Executive Director of the Maydan Institute, as he explores the fascinating reasons why Islamophobia isn’t racism, why it’s so effective, and how best we can change the conversation for the better. We’re never going to change the way people look at Islam in America unless we first understand why it is so many negative voices on Islam get so much attention.
