If you don't see the relationship between racial and religious prejudices, you should have your head examined. I do not find it difficult at all to make the leap that people who openly engage in anti-Muslim prejudice would also be closet racists. I find that truth rather self-evident.
Prejudice is exactly the word when false accusations of status are used as a slur. This is a status slur, done specifically to inflame anti-Muslim prejudice against Obama.
Are you denying the existence of anti-Muslim prejudice?
