Well is it racist to draw the prophet though ?
I would argue that technically it's not (because islam is a belief, not a race, by the same logic it would be racist to mock scientologists or people who believe in the earth being flat).
As for the more loose definition of racism which does seem to mean being hostile to a group of people because of their culture/beliefs/ethnicity, I would argue that in this case it can really depend on the content of the drawing... But joking about something doesn't mean that you are ultimately hostile. I feel like if I answer yes to that question then I must also answer yes to the question "Is scandinavia and the world racist ?". And I really really don't feel like I want to do that...
