I'm not really a racist though. I don't hate on anyone because of their race.
Don't tell me, you don't hate on anyone because of their race because Islam isn't a race.

Well you're right, Islam is not a race. And I don't even hate Islam. As an ideology there are things that I admire about it. And as an ideology I think it is open to criticism, same as any other.

The idea that people should have fear to point out the problems within the Islamic community is ridiculous yet I fully understand their apprehension to do so.

Aren't the liberal types telling us that race doesn't actually exist, at least not as a solid scientific concept. That means that if the term has any meaning at al, it must be a cultural / identity one. So a religion can indeed be a race, as can indeed be having a tattoo or riding a motorbike or doing yoga.

Huh? Biology isn't science?

Are you perhaps talking about creationist's "version of biology"?

Nope - it's semantics. A Racist can hate anyone, even if it's not based on a biological race. same as someone can be a Chauvinist without being a napoleonic french soldier.
