The term “Islamaphobia” is thrown around a lot in the media in a way that is narrow and vague.
Get your pen and paper ready because in today’s show I’m reviewing a book that explains Islamaphobia in a way that will change the way you think about it forever.
In todays show we discuss several things including:
- The 3 Types of Islamaphobia no one talks about
- How Islamaphobia is such a sophisticated phenomenon
- Why Islamaphobia is nothing new and much more
Here’s some of what I share in the show:
Islamaphobia is a sophisticated global phenomenon
“The book is called American Islamaphobia but it identifies Brexit an example of an incident that informs and fuels American Islamaphobia”
Islam is intersectional and this affects Islamaphobia
“Islamaphobia and Islam is massively intersectional in ways that people don’t consider. This creates conflicts and opportunities”
Islamaphobia is structural
“Islamaphobia shows up in policies and organisations in ways that are normalised by existing narratives”
