    Islam is a race? ...
    The Muslim lady was also Arab, which makes this racism. Anyhow most Muslims in the UK are also of minority races so most instances of Islamophobia are also instances of racism.

    Exactly, she wasn't discussing any particular theological disputes she might have with Islam, just profiling her as a result of her ethnic appearance and ethnic style of dress. That's racism.

    The victim being ethnic doesn't make it a hate crime

    E.g. if you hit a black person, that's not racism, unless you hit them BECAUSE they are black

    It is the intent of the perpetrator that makes the difference

    Most instances of Islamophobia are not racism, if they would say the same thing to someone of any race

    Islamophobia isn't a thing. The disliking of a set of ideas cannot be racist, and it is not a phobia. And it's not exactly like Islam doesn't provoke criticism. A set of ideas which is proposed to be the perfect and infallible truth, divinely revealed unto an illiterate desert-dwelling warlord is begging for criticism.

    That's not to say that the woman in this video isn't a moron.

    Lol I guess you've been living under a rock. Because this is old as hell and it got plenty exposure

    And that woman is a mess. She's most likely in east London Whitechapel or smth and she's talking reckless on a bus full of Muslims. How could she endanger herself AND her child like that. Really disturbing.

    That's one video. There are plent of videos of white people being racist on public transport that does not have as much views as my tram experience. Stop trying to victimise yourself.

    There are somethings I missed from the 1st time I watched this video. Threatening to kick a pregnant mother so she misscarries, the woman taking her 5 yr old looking boy off the bus becuase of the abuse. What kind of mother does that to other mothers and their kids? She's a monster.

    But they obviously wouldn't say the same thing to people of other races. You can't tell a British Muslim convert to 'go back to their own country'.

    Agreed, but I wasn't questioning that SPECIFIC act, I was questioning your incorrect statement:

    which assumes all crimes affecting minorities are hate crimes

    No it doesn't. It assumes all verified instances of Islamophobia, which are by definition hate crimes, are also instances of racism.

    Duh!

    ISLAM is a BELIEF SYSTEM whose adherents are NOT a RACIAL GROUPING.

    Because you didn't see it doesn't mean there was no exposure. If I recall correctly the lady has already been charged.
