Beware the Muslim dislike oversell – Dr. Rachel Gillum – Ep 23

Can anyone tell ‘ol Henri what a Muslim living in America looks like?  Anybody?!

See, that’s the whole problem.  Being a Muslim means a specific type of religious practice, but which sect?  Which tribe?  Which country or region do they hail from?  Are they practicing the religion presently?  If not, are they simply trying to survive in their culture, albeit one that’s hard and severe for apostates?!  Is it the white guy in a beige track suit with a gold chain around his neck?  Maybe, but nothing says he’s less a Muslim than the former Arab Iraqi translator working at the front desk at State Farm.  It’s a hatred with much history in the US, both socially and politically, used to further foreign policy interests for those vested in its loathsome logic.

And with that loathsome logic in mind, Danny and I present our sit down with Dr. Rachel Gillum, Muslim-American integration expert and author of Muslims in a Post-9/11 America: A Survey of Attitudes and Beliefs and Their Implications for U.S. National Security Policy”
