Law prof tackles Tea Party and Trump in Islamophobia lecture
- Princeton University hosted University of Detroit Mercy law professor Dr. Khaled A. Beydoun to speak about Islamophobia.
- Beydoun related Islamophobia to sexism, patriarchy, and white supremacy.
- The professor also tied a hatred of Islam to “the presumption that Islam is inherently violent, alien, and inassimilable" to the rise of President Donald Trump and the Tea Party.
A Princeton University lecture in late September focused on “American Islamophobia” and its relationship to law, public policy, and white supremacism.
University of Detroit Mercy law professor Dr. Khaled A. Beydoun gave the talk in promotion of his recent book, American Islamophobia: Understanding the Rise and Roots of Fear.
