My response to Jim Hoagland’s WashPo Article

Earlier this week, Jim Hoagland wrote a piece for The Washington Post that got my dander up. So I critique it at Racialicious:

While Hoagland attempted to differentiate between Islam and the political entities he discusses in last Sunday’s article by using specifics (“the Taliban’s version of Islamic law”; “Fanatical Islamic sects have framed their battle in holy terms and seek to destroy their faith’s mainstream values.”), any delineation is lost in his judgment-laden words and mischaracterizations of Afghan and Pakistani men.

A colleague and friend, Hussein Rashid, takes issue with my use of the term “Islamophobia” and critiques it here.
