Law professor writes of Islamaphobia’s effects on Muslims

Associate Professor of Law Khaled A. Bedouin is a scholar of Critical Race Theory and examines Islamophobia from a legal, race-based perspective.

His work examining the intersection of race, religion and citizenship has been featured in top law journals.

On March 30, Beydoun published a piece looking at the effects on Muslims of the rise in Islamaphobia in the United States in recent months in the Guardian, a well-respected independent international news source.

He wrote, in part “The decision to act as non-Muslim as possible is an emergent phenomenon in Trump’s America. But it is not an entirely new one. The hostility toward Muslims after the 9/11 terror attacks motivated many Muslims to underperform, conform or conceal their Muslim identities, and the protracted war on terror extended the phenomenon well into the Obama administration.”
