A big majority of Londoners voted for a Muslim Mayor of London. Far, far more than just the Muslims living in London.

It's no wonder that we are seeing a rash of xenophobic and racist-oriented UKIP-style threads on TSR this morning, as the far right go into shock that a clear majority of people don't share their views, won't react to their dog whistle politics and believe that a tolerant, multiracial London is not just possible but a current reality.

Will the right wing headbangers please take a lesson from this and stop trying to fill TSR with hate messages every morning? Pretty please?

You choose the mayor because of their skills, not their religion, race, colour or whatnot. Obviously he had a great campaign and it worked.

I honestly don't care too much that he's a Muslim. I care more that he's a politician who managed to win the mayoral election.

I think that people need to see past religion and just see people for who they are, not for what they're labelled as.

I doubt it; every mistake he makes, small or large, will be gone over again and again in great detail. :rolleyes:

True. My point is that this isn't how this kind of thing is seen by the racists.

Not least by the Mail, the Evening Standard and the Sun, who will be constantly running headlines about "Muslim Mayor Khan fails", etc.

The Evening Standard comes out of this particularly badly - it has run a whole series of dog whistle race and terror stories. Ironic that it is owned by a corrupt buddy of Putin's that the government is happy to see running London's only newspaper providing he keeps spewing out the hate.

A bit like the reaction when a Christian Chinese man became the mayor of Jakarta in Indonesia I think these sort of reactions happen the world over.

As long as religion and politics are kept separate, then it shouldn't matter. But when the two mix, I do believe it to be a problem.

Nor really. No need to pain "Muslims" as the victims all the time, when they're not. Tantamount to black people, whom are sensitive to any form of resistance that they'll shout "racist", racist lol.

That's right , most people aren't racist. They do, however, have an issue with barbaric, medieval cults that have no place in a 21st century, Western democracy. You know, the type that wants to execute homosexuals, treats women worse than bovines and so on.... How can ''lefties'' not be on board that?

It's all so reminiscent of this. In German too!

1.) For the millionth time, Islam is not a race
2.) People voted for him because they liked his policies, not because he's a Muslim. I couldn't give a flying **** whether or not he's Muslim, just like I don't care if David Cameron is Christian. The only thing I care about is whether he will be a good mayor and freeze the already ridiculously high transport fares in London.

Of course it's not a race. Sadly that doesn't stop the racists from assuming it is.

Considering he has been demoted to the rank of Munafiq and the status of "selling out his deen" with his vote on gay-marriage and his comments about the hijab... I don't think that will be a problem

I don't care about whether he's a Muslim or not... but my main concern is that he supports Liverpool: and that's unacceptable as the Mayor of London

I've already seen that remark surface on TSR recently My only hope is that he doesn't try to appease such individuals, no matter how much pressure they might put on him.

Who cares what race or religion he is, as long as he's not a conservative I'm happy.
