This week on CounterSpin: Like all discrimination, Islamophobia is political and personal, individual and institutional, subtle and not at all subtle. A recent incident led Maha Hilal to connect those dots in an essay. Maha Hilal is co-director of the Justice for Muslims Collective and an organizer with Witness Against Torture. We’ll talk with her about her piece, “White Supremacy in the Courtroom,” and the story behind it.

Also on the show: If you search “endangered species” online, you will find many beautiful photographs of foxes and leopards and bears. If the Trump White House has its way, pictures may be all that you can see. We spoke with Brett Hartl, government affairs director at the Center for Biological Diversity, about current assaults on the Endangered Species Act.
