A distinction that is not true at all-- there are entire countries and
regions of the world that are overwhelmingly Muslim-- and even if it
were, would not turn that statement from non-racist to racist.
If it's racist to say it about Muslims, then it's racist to say it about
cops. And yes, your exciting new definition of 'racism' is so broad that
"cops" will now qualify.
