How do you spot an Islamophobe?
First, Islamophobes fail to differentiate between Islam (the religion) and Muslim (those who practice the faith). Second, they believe "Arabic" is an ethnicity and "hijabi" is a language ... and yes, these people exist.
Twitter user @BarryStanton64 is just one example. In a tweet posted on Nov. 21, said tweep proved that Islamophobia is alive and well.
"When i go to London i want to see BRITISH people speaking ENGLISH, not f**king Somalis speaking hijabi [sic]," he wrote.
"Speaking hijabi" ...???
His tweet went viral, garnering over 2,000 retweets at the time of writing.
As one can imagine ... Twitter exploded. Sarcasm and humor dominated the conversation.
