==Islam and Racism==
 
Contrary to popular liberal belief, opposition to radical and violent [[Islam]] is not racist because Islam is a violent religion and therefore it is justified in suppressing Islamic terrorism.

Racism is prejudice and discrimination based on race. An example is a claim that of inferiority or superiority based on the color of one's skin. Another example was the Jim Crow laws.

Racism has come to mean the hatred of another person because of the color of his or her skin, or perceived difference in origin. The doctrine of substantive due process in United States constitutional law can be used to invalidate racist laws. Alternately, the equal protection clause of the Fourteenth Amendment can be used to do the same. See e.g. Brown v. Board of Education, 347 U.S. 483 (1954).
