clarity…

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.
