Racism is not always white oppression of non-white people. Racism can be between ethnic groups. Japanese and Koreans are both Asian, however Japan annexed Korea for 35 years.

Hold on there BlackMan. You say that racism is a factor in the Irish-English conflict? Both groups a caucasian! The biggest problem is that the pig headed Enlish shipped boat loads of Protestants to Ireland and pushed the Catholics off their land. That's just one of the many reprehensible misdeeds of the English crown.

I agree that religion plays a major part. I should have worded my first sentence differently. Those conflicts aren't exclusively or solely religious.

That is mostly true.. but in each case.. religion plays a major part.

The Arab-Israeli, Irish-English conflicts are more complex than it being a religious conflict. Racism is a major factor in both conflicts. I can't summarize my analysis of each conflict because I would have to write a book.
