We use "racism" for lack of a better word when we mean "prejudice because of ethnicity".

In other words, you are intentionally using an extremely inflamatory word that doesn't properly describe the phenomenon you believe is taking place?

Just so we can be clear here, what do you mean by the word "ethnicity"? When that Arab Moslem converted, and became an Orthodox Jew, did he change his ethnicity?

The emotions involved are pretty much the same
Do you mean that disliking someone because of his skin color is equivalent (in your mind) to disliking someone because he is trying to kill me?

I believe in judging a man by the content of his character (as exhibited by his behavior), not the color of his skin.

ArBy the way, are you familiar with the Moslem term "dhimmi"?
