Extreme Prejudice

Extreme Prejudice

Lately, the news has been full of horrifying stories and images linked to the actions of such terrorist groups as ISIS and Boko Haram, which self-identify as Muslim. There is additional fallout closer to home. As the number of media events portraying Islam as a dark threat increases, so do threats to American Muslim students—and to their Sikh classmates, who are often mistaken for Muslims. Ignorance about religious diversity and extremism has left these students vulnerable to stereotyping and bullying by classmates and even teachers, and has created hostile environments that can make it difficult for students to learn.
