Summary
  • "Many of us can recall the targeting of South Asian, Arab, Muslim, and Sikh people in the wake of 9/11. We may be less aware, however, of the ongoing racism directed against these groups in the past decade and a half. In We Too Sing America, nationally renowned activist Deepa Iyer catalogs recent racial flashpoints, from the 2012 massacre at the Sikh gurdwara in Oak Creek, Wisconsin, to the violent opposition to the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro, Tennessee, and to the Park 51 Community Center in Lower Manhattan. Iyer asks whether hate crimes should be considered domestic terrorism and explores the role of the state in perpetuating racism through detentions, national registration programs, police profiling, and constant surveillance. She looks at topics including Islamophobia in the Bible Belt; the "Bermuda Triangle" of anti-immigrant, anti-Muslim hysteria; and the energy of new reform movements, including those of "undocumented and unafraid" youth and Black Lives Matter. In a book that reframes the discussion of race in America, a brilliant young activist provides ideas from the front lines of post-9/11 America."--
  • "Since 9/11, we continue to hear incomplete and sanitized histories ... that all too often neglect the experiences of South Asian, Arab, Muslim, and Sikh immigrant communities in the United States. Activist Deepa Iyer catalogs recent racial flashpoints, from the 2012 massacre at the Sikh gurdwara in Oak Creek, Wisconsin, to the relentless opposition to the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro, Tennessee, and to the Park 51 Community Center in Lower Manhattan. Iyer places the hate violence, Islamophobia, and xenophobia in a broader context -- that of an American racial landscape undergoing a rapid and radical demographic transformation. Iyer shows how South Asian, Arab, Muslim, and Sikh immigrant communities engage in ... undocumented youth, Black Lives Matter, and Black-Brown coalitions that can inspire new directions for racial justice in the United States.
