For example, if someone says "all muslims/Pakistanis are inbred" it's the "all muslims/Pakistanis" bit that makes it racist.
You could argue that it's also racist to claim that everyone in Blackburn is inbred. But as there has not been a genuine history of treating people from Blackburn as a lesser part of society, then you would have a hard time being taken seriously
I reckon referring to the people of Blackburn as Horse Botherers signifies they truly are a lesser part of society.But not in my opinion.
