This article discusses the lack of reactions to Islamophobic expressions in public. The so-called Rocky-debate in Sweden, regarding alleged anti-Semitic expressions in the comic strip Rocky, functions as a point of departure for a discussion about the strip’s allusions to Islamophobic expressions. Finally, the lack of reactions to the use of Islamophobic expressions is reflected upon and put in relation to Pierre Bourdieu’s theories about taste.
