The relationship between anti-Muslim prejudice and racism can be best illustrated by a commonly used anti-Muslim pejorative:

Sand N!gger.

The blending of the lines between anti-black/dark skinned racism and anti-Muslim prejudice is abundantly clear in this pejorative.

The majority of the 1.5 billion Muslims of the world are non-white, and the history of anti-Muslim imagery being dominated with oversized non-white ethnic features, and dark skinned images further blurs the lines between religious and racial prejudice.

Do you understand the connection between racism and religious prejudice by people who harbor BOTH racial AND religious prejudice when they use the pejorative "Sand N!gger"?
