Is racism just another term for Patriotic?

    Is The British governments policy to keep muslims in, not allowing them to go out and fight for their real country a sign that there is a fear of being called Racist?
    Isn't the word the same as Patriotic?

      "Real Country"?

      I didn't know Islam was a race?

      Britain won't allow Muslims to immigrate to another country?  Or just won't allow terrorism within or without their borders?

        They are doing the same thing Canada is doing and attempting to stop our citizens to join terrorists organizations and then coming back to do more damage in their OWN countries.

          Ah.  No travel for terrorists wishing to murder innocent people. 

          Most countries do that, I think, and those that do not, should.  So what's that about "fighting for their country"?

    No. Racism is never another word for patriotic. Hope that answers your question.

    Yes, racism is now, and has always been, patriotic.  Mostly a deep South idea though.
    I hope this answers your question.  LOL...
