Islamophobia fueled by right-wing politics and propaganda


US minorities and people of color being targeted, ethnically cleansed, and persecuted by Europeans in the United States and elsewhere is no recent development. And the propaganda, as Malcolm X prophesied, plays a significant part in this process.

“If you’re not careful, the newspapers will have you hating the people who are being oppressed, and loving the people who are doing the oppressing.”

Those are the words of the late civil rights leader Malcolm X, and they as relevant today as they were in his lifetime. It is an oft-quoted passage, but only because its meaning has a universal resonance.

The cyclical nature of a system so deeply steeped and implicated in racism, and much bigger than Obama, is revealed even more clearly when set against the backdrop of history.
