Recently I heard someone on TV say:
“you can’t really call someone a ‘racist’ when they are being negative towards Muslims…because Muslim is a religion, not a race.”
This really hit me and made me think…
Apparently it’s called ‘islam-a-phobia’ not racism. So interesting, and good to clarify that for me, because I had not thought about it before, or made the connection…
…so if I hear someone say: that’s racist.
I now know what it really means.
