    I've seen a lot of uneducated posts today which display a clear misunderstanding about what race is. Race, a social construct, is a group of people who share similar and distinct physical characteristics. To therefore assume that Jews, Christians, Muslims and so forth are a race is completely incorrect.

    Therefore, it is possible to be racist against Caucasians(technically), but not against Christians.
