Fun Online Polls: Is It Racist & Countries Smaller Than Israel.

Posted on the 27 October 2015 by Markwadsworth @Mark_Wadsworth

The results to last week's Fun Online Poll were as follows:
Is it racist if a black British woman tells a woman in a full-face burka to go back to her own country?
Yes - 40%
No - 60%

A good turnout with 126 votes. Thanks to everybody who took part.
I was with the majority on this one.
It is clear that "Jewish" is both a people/race and a religion, and there is a ninety percent overlap between "Hindus" and "Indians", in which case it would be impossible/futile to say whether criticising members of either group simply for being members of that group would be 'religionist' or 'racist'*, but Islam is not a race. It's not even a religion if you ask me, it's an inferiority complex/massive grudge against 'everybody else'.
* Unless somebody could show that he dislikes all Indians equally, be they Hindu, Sikh, Christian or Muslim. That would just be racist but at least no religious prejudice involved.
Just for fun, this week let's have a geography/general knowledge quiz: "Which of the following has a smaller surface area than Israel?".
