a 'racist' doesn't only judge a person on the colour of their skin (example) big brother house recently, a racist can be racist just because somebody is different to you (looks, culture and beliefs).

besides a poll on sky news, out of 1000 british muslims 80% of those classed themselves as a 'muslim' rather than 'british' (unconfirmed figure).


RACE (PEOPLE)
noun [C or U]
a group, especially of people, with particular similar physical characteristics, who are considered as belonging to the same type, or the fact of belonging to such a group:

racism

the belief that people's qualities are influenced by their race and that the members of other races are not as good as the members of your own, or the resulting unfair treatment of members of other races:

believer
noun [C]
a person who has a religious belief or has confidence in the benefit of something:

Hope this clarifies something for you.

==============
RACE:-
. a group
. people, with particular similar physical characteristics
. who are considered as belonging to the same type
==============

does that not describe islam?, does that not describe a muslims pilgrimage to alton towers and why 20,000 are going isolating themselves from other groups?, does that not describe the average muslims isolation in british society and why muslims generally only mix with their own groups and own people?

===============
RASCIM:-
. that the members of other races are not as good as the members of your own,
. resulting unfair treatment of members of other races
===============

hmm does not cover this thread, (especially the 2nd point)...i can also go into more detail to cover rascim side i.e. how a the average muslim will never sell his property/business to another person unless they are ‘muslim‘

is that not racist? is that not "unfair treatment of members of other races" as quoted from your own post?

Muslims wanting to have a 'fun day' at Alton Towers hardly smacks of a sinister conspiricy, the fact it was double booked was an unfortunate accident which I'm sure was resolved to all parties satisfaction. Making a big deal out of the MUSLIM part of it seems a tad agenda ridden.

But come on, only the right wing press have a reporting bias! Have you never read the Guardian?

Because racism, or perhaps more accurately, racial prejudice applies to a range of circumstances and situations. You suggested that my Christmas party was not the same as the Alton Towers event because fewer people were involved.

yeah but we are not talking about a company or group, we are talking about 20,000 people.

I was simply pointing out that laws against racism are not dependent on the numbers involved but, rather, the principle of discrimination on the grounds of race or ethnicity.

Whether we are talking about discrimination in employment or any other scenario the same laws apply.

What was proposed at Alton Towers was an event which insisted on Muslim practices being observed. Once again, Islam is NOT a race, it is a religion, if you cannot comprehand the distinction between the two then we are probably not going to make much progress. However, perhaps you can draw comfort from the fact that the event did nor take place beacause the 20,000 Muslims did not book for the event and it was cancelled. Even if we accept that the organisers were racist in their intentions, although all the published facts suggest that this was not the case, then we should be pleased that the Muslim population at large ignored the event.
