Dr Jack Shaheen (September 21, 1935 – July 9, 2017), Professor Emeritus at Southern Illinois University, was a renowned expert on the racial stereotyping of Arabs and Muslims. 

“My life has been dedicated to trying to humanize Arabs and Muslims and to give visibility to American Arabs and American Muslims – to have us being projected no better, no worse, than anyone else.” – Jack Shaheen (2015)
