Abstract

The categories ‘white British’ and ‘British Muslim’ may appear to be exclusive, so what are the consequences of this assumption? Through her work on white Muslim identities in the UK, Amena Amer has identified two main narratives in the British press regarding white Muslims. Their religion is used to explain their association with extremism, while their whiteness offers them an opportunity to distance themselves from extremism, a tactic unavailable to non-white Muslims.
