An important addition to the discourse concerning anti-Muslim racism: biting, perceptive, and surprisingly conversational
Neo-Nazis, the attacks in various cities, arson, even genocide – anti-Muslim racism is a widespread problem. But few people know exactly what it truly means. Muslims are constantly accused of extremism and backwardness, which has a great influence on social coexistence.
Filmmaker and journalist Melina Borčak shows numerous examples of how language promotes racist conceptions – in witty, comprehensible, and oftentimes surprisingly amusing ways. It is impossible to look away.
