Salams/Greetings of peace:
It’s hard for a community that feels under siege due to Islamophobia to admit it that has a problem with racism and bigotry within its ranks. It is a difficult but necessary task. Such a community must be united to have an effective response to bigotry directed against it especially when the vast majority of its members are considered people of color, or non-white. As we all have seen in recent months, in the U.S., racism is the major obstacle to unity. That’s why as founder and executive director of Islamic Networks Group (ING), I felt compelled to develop a webinar series on intra-Muslim racism titled, Educating Ourselves: Expanding the Muslim American Experience Beyond the Immigrant Story.
