Is Discriminating Against Muslims Racist?

Some people say discriminating against Muslims is racist. Others say it isn’t racist because Islam is a religion, not a race. We think it doesn’t matter either way: discrimination is offensive and illegal.

Debating whether or not discrimination towards Muslims is racist is focusing on a technicality. It avoids the real issue, which is whether we treat people unfairly because of their skin colour, nationality or cultural background or we treat them fairly as unique individuals.
