"You must have... no knowledge of the outside world. Yes, boo hoo there is racism from non-whites to whites. The difference is that whites don't make it a big deal and don't WHINE to thousands organizations like non-whites usually do."

Hello? I just said that whites are beginning more and more to complain about racism from non-whites directed against them, and then you say that non-whites don't make it a big deal? Hello? Anyone in there? Thought so.

In any case, white racism against non-whites is still significantly greater than vice-versa. Many non-whites admire whites for being more affluent and powerful, instead of resenting them for it (I don't, of course, since I know how whites got there) And whites have greater power to act on their racism, at least in countries where they're the majority. But even when they were the minority, they were still able to subjugate the non-whites, as during the colonial period. No...you're the one who has no knowledge of the outside of the world.

"Ah, so it's ok when they do to you first. So it's ok for us to reject muslims and ostracise them all the way because they did it to us for 1400 years.

Isn't it wonderful? now you have legitimized to do what we want to do."

Yes, it is okay to dislike them if they do it to you first, and then don't feel sorry for it, as in your case. However, Muslims never ostracized whites. The hostility between Christians and Muslims was mutual in the Middle Ages.
