Islam is a religion and a culture, not a race/ethnicity. Why is it then considered racist to act out against them? Isn't racism supposed to be against blacks, whites, orientals, Hispanics etc? Those are races where I know Muslims of many skin colours. So then, if that's the case, why is it racist to speak or act out against them.
Don't get me wrong, if you have questions and criticism of such things, it's your right. But the question stands.
