Ripostes: Spreading Confusion, Potentially Inciting Hatred – Trevor Phillips’ Route to ‘Active Integration’ by Professor Gus John


Professor Gus John has written an article in Muslimwise responding to Trevor Phillips “Race and Faith: The Deafening Silence”. He criticises Phillips’ article for focusing exclusively on Muslims when talking about the intersection of faith and race, mentioning the racism in the structures and practices of established Christian churches as a counterpoint. Prof. John goes on to quote Phillips’ article directly comparing it to Enoch Powell’s 1968 ‘rivers of blood’ speech. He also challenges Phillips’ characterization of Muslims as a potential threat to society, refuting such a stance in detail. It is a powerful article worthy your reading time.
