Race and Terrorism in a Post-9/11 World
The events on 9/11 confounded ideas about race and terrorism. Since that time, law-abiding Muslims and Arabs have had their rights violated and their lives disrupted, as many Americans have learned to view them as inherently violent and intent on destroying the American way of life.
Meanwhile, white separatist and hate groups, who have long sought to dismantle the government and wreak havoc on disfavored groups, continue to find space if not sympathy.
This panel explores this disconnect between race and terror, considering both its reasons and implications.
