Why most people generalize muslims as a race?

Today must non muslim people are generalizing us like a particular race , infact , there are white muslims, Asian muslims , black muslims , latinos... but people still generalize all muslims as a race , for example i saw a video the title was " White guy vs muslim guy " the muslim guy was also white and they showed his religion and not his race.

Be respectful please 🌷🌷🌷
And have a good day :]

  • Many lack knowledge I guess, And yeah it's funny how they think all Middle Easterns are Arabs or Muslim,
    Not all Arabs are Muslim, millions are Christian
    Not all Muslims are Arabs, actually, Arabs only represent about 15/18 % of the world Muslim Population
    Not all Middle Easterns are Arabs, some are Turkic, Kurdish, Persian etc...
    Many white people are actually Muslim like many Bosnians, Albanians, some Macedonians and even Russians like the Tatars or Circassians...

    • Oh and Arab is not a race, not anymore at least

    • I see.

      makes sense tbh.

    • I agree with this, Arabs is not a race,
      Arabs are nations and tribes who took arabic as mother tongue
      There is black, white Caucasian and nomads who are Arabs
      And there's Asian Arabs now

  • Well dude think with some logic. Muslim faith is most prominent in middle eastern countries. I understand that you might be offended by that but for the most part that's just how it is. You don't see a lot of white muslims around. It's just logic dude. You can't take everything to heart.

    • actually, it's not. There are more Muslims and South/South East Asia than the Middle East

    • I actually didn't know that. All the way from Turkey to Indonesia has largest population of muslims. Ended up reading this whole page lol.
      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Islam_by_country

      On average I think your average white American would of came to the same conclusion. It's a common misbelief here.

  • When people talk about 'Muslims' they are usually talking about the Middle Eastern/Arabic ones, so basically it is a whole generalization confusion.

    • Show All
    • Yeah they consider all Jews to be Jewish now. Like there are are Arab Jews Kurdish Jews American Jews etc in Israel but usually they are incorrectly just referred to as Jews

    • @yucel_eden this can ofcourse be true of christians too. my view is that i dont really care. believe what you want and come from wherever you come from... doesn't matter. we are all humans.

  • Yeah, it's scary how you can't even predict based on skin color. There's that lingering distrust towards everyone.

  • Because scientifically speaking the religion did originate in the region which is now middle east. So it's origin is entangled with a particular race (middle eastern and arab). Later the religion was ADOPTED by other races. But still religion and race does have a strong connection. For example majority of Hindus are Indians. It would be ignorant and stupid to ignore this link.

  • Its usually by social justice warriors who call anyone who speaks out about muslims racist. They are so ignorant that they can't understand that race and religion are two different things.

  • Because right now, there is no clearly physical attribute which looks "extremist".
    So we can't say "All black muslims are terrorists" or "All white muslims want to kill you"

    So we are generalising one step above that. "Muslims are terrorists. Muslims want to kill us."

    The day we can all correctly identify extremist nut jobs as a race, we'll all be better off. For now though, that's why it's happening.
