The conclusion makes two arguments. The first is that the study of the everyday dimensions of politics adds richness and texture to political science, and should become a greater part of our scholarly discourse. The second is that the shifts taking place during the Trump administration represent both an outpouring of overt Islamophobia and anti-Arab racism, and the slow growth of an increase in political space for Arab Americans to voice their opinions and frame political problems for themselves. While Arab Americans have not yet achieved robust justice for themselves and their communities, the potential for change and growth is present.
