    So u have all these Arab countries Lebanon,Syria, Saudi Arabia, UAE , Bahrain, etc

    is the culture all the same or different?

    Also, as an Arab could u look at another Arab and tell where he or she is from? whether he is a Syrian or Saudi Arab etc ?


    I dont mean 2 say all Arabs are racist but i mean out all the Arab countries which is the least racist towards outsiders whether it be Indians Pakistanis.

    ohhhh its very difficult for a non-arab to marry an Arab, particularly pakistanis/indians as a reference just look at the Khaleej and how they're treated their, that is NOT good PR to begin with. Secondly if you are black, laaaa habibi masalaamah, no way, mustaheel, impossible, unfortunately Arabs, are still wholly influence by culture, and it just so happens that this very culture is somewhat racist, hence the casual referencing of black people as 'abeed' - slaves, so in short, its veryyy difficult buddy, I think 2nd/3rd generation Arab families that have grown up and lived in the West for the majority of their lives will be 'aight with it as ultimately you are a product of your surroundings.
    This is too true, its really bad but i and many others i know have been guilty of this even though we never mean it in a racist way, ive stopped saying it a few years back when i realised i was being a racist pile of crap.

    Honestly its a game of luck, it could be any arab from anywhere, there isnt a specific one.

    Looooool you just reminded me. My cousin went to Saudi for the past 2 weeks for his older brothers wedding, he was getting harassed by a saudi police officer because he is of yemeni origin and so what my cousin did was throw the UK passport on the desk in front of the police officer and the police officer apologised and left him alone :rofl:

    Nope lol. Ive barely been to yemen. Maybe twice in my entire life. Where were you born?

    Also i dont think arabs are racist to blacks specifically. Im pretty sure arab parents wont feel comfortable with their child marrying a white european either.
