Sahar Aziz (Texas Wesleyan University School of Law ), on Huffington Post reports that "after 9/11, anti-Muslim prejudice was manifested most prominently as racial profiling, with Muslim men being the primary targets. The failure to effectively combat it has emboldened bigots into more open expressions of hatred directed at those regarded as most vulnerable: women. . . . Since the Ground Zero mosque controversy in 2010, Muslim women have increasingly reported being attacked in public or threats of such."
I fear that Professor Aziz is all-too-right.
