Swim-racism and the burkini / burqini

In swim-racism news, I was recently interviewed for a timely Newsweek article just published here: Burkini swimsuits spark anti-Muslim outrage – and fast sales. 

A piece I wrote for Religion Dispatches in 2009 remains relevant today: The Deadly Burqini.

Enjoy. Summer’s going to be over soon, and before you know it, everyone’s going to be in puffy coats and scarves.

In the meantime, check out this man’s wetsuit. Carbone-wetsuit-4-van-8-e1441164326374.jpg
