    For those who hadn't seen part one, here.

    So I saw them again and had dinner (me, my mum, uncle and his boyfriend).

    At the end they were getting a cab back. My uncle was checking the app on his phone for cabs and said "I wonder if it'll be a terrorist cab driver."

    I said "wtf, that's racist". and he said "oh, not all muslims are terrorists but all terrorists are muslim."

    Then I said "For 2 guys who have been taking it up the sh*tter their entire lives, you guys are really close minded."

    They went quiet, but it was time to go anyway so they hugged my mum but ignored me and left, haven't really heard from them since.

    They shouldn't be racist and you had the right to stick up for yourself but I still don't agree with bringing other prejudice into it

    He didn't even know the guy was a Muslim.

    A lot of the people who say "Islam isn't a race" just attack asian people anyway but use this line when caught.

    I remember a video of a black woman calling a muslim woman a "sand rat" which was clearly racist, had more to do with skin colour and heritage then it does religion but a comment on the video was "islam isn't a race."
