Having a certain skin color or following a certain religion does not magically allow you not to be a racist. You know that, right? That anyone can be a racist, if they choose to?
read the book then come back when you know what you're talking about.
I don't need to read a book to know that what I said is true. Anyone can choose to be a racist, their skin color or religion does not earn them a free pass.
You do need the book. Because the guy is clearly not racist
I didn't say he was or wasn't. Read above. I'm laughing at your logic that if someone is "Pakistani and a Muslim" it's impossible for them to be racist.
So african americans that say the N word are being racist now?
I never said that, either. Your original quote showed ignorance, and I pointed out your ignorance. (I will probably continue to point out your ignorance.)
I know what your saying but I don't understand how it's possible to be racist when you are one of the races that you're supposedly discriminating against?
I know you don't have to be white to be racist, it can be any race discriminating against another. But people are specifically accusing Maajid of being racist against races from the middle east, even though he is one of the races from that area. That's why I was asking you to read the book, because you're not aware of the context of the conversation.
