By definition, a Muslim is one who follows the religion of Islam. Literal meaning of Muslim is the person who submits himself/herself to God. Any human being could be Muslim irrespective of his/her race. In Islam there is no discrimination on the basis of race.

There are many governments, especially in Eastern Europe, who regard people identifying themselves as Muslims, to be an ethnicity due to their ancestors converting to Islam. Some of them are not practicing Islam but still call themselves Muslim.

But definitely Islam is the religion of all mankind not of a specific race.

No any human can not be called a Muslim, but anyone can follow Islam. Muslim were of those of Afrocentric Areas and now many have converted to Islam but they are not Muslims. I am 52 years old and on my Birth certificate where it ask for race; mine says Muslim. I have been told my my grand parents that we are Muslims not Americans, not Black but Muslims.

Islam is religion. It is the God religion since start of universe creation. Refer to question below.
