Ok, I really don't understand this.
I am a Muslim but I'm not exactly Asian. I was born in Finland but came here when I was six. I wear the headscarf and also the abaya ( the ankle length dress). When I'm on the train, I've noticed lately people seem to think I cannot speak English or that I am uneducated, and they seem so suprised when I seem to be able to read a newspaper.
So, this got me wandering. What is your perception of a Muslim who wears a heascarf and the abaya? Do you see them as an uneducated person who cannot speak English?
I'd like honest answers because I have really no clue.

Im going to guess youre somalian (ethnically)
What newspaper are you reading ? Perhaps they are shocked because it was the Daily Mail
It wasn't that. That paper is a joke sometimes, and my intelligence shows me not waste my time reading such trash.
And no, it isn't 'somalian', its Somali, and that wasn't a guess, you already knew that from yesterday.
