What is “racist” about this sign?

The BBC headline reads: Police are hunting a man who spray-painted “racist” anti-Muslim graffiti at several locations in Livingston. (When did Islam become a ‘race?’ The only thing he is guilty of is bad spelling)


BBC  The “racist” slogans were sprayed in the Dedridge area of the West Lothian town from 02:00 on Saturday morning. Police Scotland said the suspect may have been wearing yellow “marigold” gloves. 

He was described as white and wearing a black baseball cap with ear flaps, and a red, white and blue striped football scarf wrapped round his face. He had a dark coloured zip-up jacket, jeans and black boots. He is thought to have used a large white tin of red spray paint.

“Anyone who recognizes this man or has information about this incident is asked to call Police Scotland on 101 or anonymously to Crimestoppers ” XXXX XXX XXX” (I won’t tell if you won’t)
