I'm pretty sure there are many non-whites these days who are phobic of racist whites murdering them, based on their skin color, because of America's long, documented, barbaric history regarding that, but in regards to the topic..I was comparing the level of hatred/prejudice towards Muslims vs hatred towards one's racial identity. Two different types of hatred, yes, but the level of hate towards Muslims, in this country, is similar to the level of racial prejudice, that still exists in America. The prejudice towards Muslims, has increased since that sick animal got elected into the White House, and the hate rhetoric he spewed about Muslims contributed to that prejudice as well. That's not difficult to comprehend. Good day. [Edited 3/4/17 11:09am]


Does it make you feel good to always be so fucking smug? lol

The difference is that black folks (I'll assume that's what you're talking about) didn't do anything to incur the kind of treatment they got. There are radical muslims in a lot of places that don't make a secret of the fact that they disagree with major parts of western society, and are willing to kill people over it. So given that, your argument is moot. I'm not saying it's good to be prejudiced, but I understand it. So try again. Or don't.

Yeah that is a part of the discussion that many people who try to compare "Islamaphobia" to racism towards blacks. It's really not the same thing because Africans were brought to America against their will and FORCED to work and then be subjected to white supremacy and racism for centuries. There are many Muslims who hate Western culture and what it stands for. Whether or not it's justified is another discussion. However, the terror attacks and extremism cannot be ignored. I've heard that in Dearborn, Michigan (which has a large Arab population) has Sharia Law enforced for goodness sake! This is America but Sharia Law is enforced? I heard there are neighborhoods in London that also have Sharia law observed. It's ridiculous.

Trolls be gone!

To be fair I've noticed illustrators tend to darken up many non-white people they portray, particularly biracial ones like Obama. In real life he's beige; in illustrated form he's dark brown. Yet I never hear anyone compain that that is racism.

I remember an orger got himself in trouble for pointing out that some drawings of Prince had blackened him up. But no-one on the thread called the illustrator racist.

People complained when they did that to OJ, particularly on the cover of Time Magazine

Interesting. They noticed the blacking up phenomenon when it was used on a famous murderer and they complained about it in that case, but they don't notice the same phenomenon when it's used on more benign figures. I missed the complaints about Obama, Prince, Rio Ferdinand (mixed race British footballer), and Theo Walcott (another mixed race British footballer) being darkened up in artists' drawings. All of those people are lighter than OJ too.

One reason women there wear those flowing body gowns is because they have sand storms.

Yup, sand up the vajayjay is not fun.
