In this autobiography-meets-graphic-novel, Beirut-born lecturer and writer Toufic El Rassi illustrates the daily prejudice and discrimination experienced by Muslims and Arabs in modern American society.
Drawing from his personal history, Toufic shows how hard it is to maintain an Arab identity in a country saturated with anti-Arab propaganda, examining the role of media and pop culture against the backdrop of 9/11, two Gulf Wars, and U.S. involvement in the Middle East.
Arab in America is a must-read for those infuriated with the absurdity and blatant prejudice of contemporary American foreign policy!
