dc.description.abstractThis work focuses on the topic of colorism in the Islamic community of one U.S. city in the southwestern United States. The goal of this dissertation is to better understand how colorism is enacted in Islamic spaces and how immigration policies and the racial classification system of the United States have both assisted in dividing communities. Qualitative data for this dissertation was collected over the period of two years with members of the Muslim community. There is a total of 22 combined individuals that participated in the pilot and primary research. Findings indicate that anti-Blackness, if not outright colorism, has evolved in the community as immigrant Muslims have worked to be seen as model minorities. There is a perception of discrimination that pervades the local Muslim community and it is based on both race and class. Discrimination was found to be exhibited primarily through 1) inequality in social situations, 2) limited opportunities for leadership, and 3) a lack of access to resources. Recommendations are given to address practical participant concerns.
