Racism and Islam

Any criticism of Islam is usually categorized as racism.

Now we know that Muslims come from the Middle East (Arabs) and Indonesia, and the Philippines as well as many other regions of the globe.

So, can we really consider the grouping a race?

Science tells us among humans, "race has no taxonomic significance by pointing out that all living humans belong to the same species, Homo sapiens, and subspecies, Homo sapiens sapiens"

What gets me upset is the misuse and abuse of language and the meaning of words. George Orwell warned us of this trend. Language is how we formulate ideas and the misuse of language results in the manipulation of thoughts in a bad way.
