Nuclear Gaze extended upon Muslim Youth

In my RBA I plan on exploring the extent that Nadal’s “Nuclear Gaze Theory” has been reimagined in society today as policing of Muslim-Americans. Within this, I am going to hone in specifically on the implications of growing up under surveillance and the effects its going to bring for Muslim youth. I am going to draw comparisons of society’s stereotypes today, as personified through Donald Trump’s proposed legislation focused on Islamic society, to the Nuclear Gaze during the Civil Rights Movement, Japanese Internment Camps, and perhaps even Nazi Germany. I hope to explore the question of if we are more likely to adapt the roles that society places upon us or if we would rather fight against them.
