Seattle Times: A white woman’s view of discrimination against her Muslim American husband

posted by Randall

Krista Bremer Krista Bremer is getting a close up view of discrimination against Muslim Americans most whites don’t get to see.

Bremer is married to a Libyan Muslim, Ismail, who she describes as “instantly identified as foreign by his accent, skin color, faith, even his gestures and communication style.”

In a guest post published by the Seattle Times, she shares her experience.

She writes:

“As a white American married to a minority Muslim, I’m caught in a strange place. I see how people misunderstand him and treat him differently. Their prejudice prevents them from seeing him clearly; he remains partially hidden from view.”

Her new book “My Accidental Jihad: A Love Story,” will be published this month.

You can get a taste for her book in the Seattle Times.
