Namira Islam is an attorney and Co-Founder and Executive Director of the Muslim Anti-Racism Collaborative (MuslimARC). We ask her about her recent article on the phenomenon of 'soft Islamophobia,' where even genuine efforts to embrace Muslims can often reveal racist/bigoted underpinnings. We also grapple with definitions like "M.A.S.A," "Islamophobia," and "anti-Muslim racism." And how important are white privilege and its maintenance to the discussion?
