Most Americans want to live in a country free from bigotry against Muslims, research shows. Although some Islamophobia exists in the margins, aware that fear and discrimination against Muslims are bad for every American. In this course, you will apply findings from the National American Islamophobia Index to measure just how much the public endorses anti-Muslim tropes. Research reveals a startling trend: discrimination against American Muslims has become institutionalized in five key areas of government: the legislative branch, the executive branch, the judicial branch, law enforcement, and public schools. By studying these systematic trends, you will better understand how prejudice is not simply an interpersonal experience but a mirror into the face of institutionalized discrimination that impacts us all.
