Summary
"Since 9/11, we continue to hear incomplete and sanitized histories ... that all too often neglect the experiences of South Asian, Arab, Muslim, and Sikh immigrant communities in the United States. Activist Deepa Iyer catalogs recent racial flashpoints, from the 2012 massacre at the Sikh gurdwara in Oak Creek, Wisconsin, to the relentless opposition to the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro, Tennessee, and to the Park 51 Community Center in Lower Manhattan. Iyer places the hate violence, Islamophobia, and xenophobia in a broader context -- that of an American racial landscape undergoing a rapid and radical demographic transformation. Iyer shows how South Asian, Arab, Muslim, and Sikh immigrant communities engage in ... undocumented youth, Black Lives Matter, and Black-Brown coalitions that can inspire new directions for racial justice in the United States.
