    I've found out from observation, they have this elite attitude when it comes to black people.

    I haven't experienced this.


    But of course there must be the select few. It's no different from asking 'Why are people racist' really.

      Some Arabs are indeed racist. But as are some of any race who think their race is better.

      I wouldn't say that they are racist. They're just scared of the unknown.

      I doubt most Arabs and Eastern Europeans see black people in their native countries. So they come to places like the UK or US, get culture shock and tend to stick to what they know.

      Nevertheless, having a prejudice against other races due to silly reasons such as skin colour, language, etc is just plain silly. I mean, look at Hitler, now he's the world's most hated man.

      You clearly know nothing about the Middle East.

      Because in Eastern Europe and Arabic countries there is no this "tolerance" bull**** when you can't open your mouth, if it's black people you're talking about.

      Therefore the "racist" tag on them.

        Mmmm - shouldn't generalise but anacdotally I think OP's probably right.

        Wasn't really that long since someone from > 1 days walk away was viewed as alien in England... some of these places have only got past that fearful peasant stage a lot more recently than us, maybe there's an upper limit to how fast socialo attitudes can change.
        Guess being a former imperial power might actually help - your British imperialists went round the world looking down on 'savage people' but they also thought those people were interesting too. maybe that's slightly more healthy than being a stay at home nation that just looks down on people (doesn't explain arabs though - they got around a bit back in the day)

        Eastern european would be defined as: Serbian, Bosnian, Bulgarian, Russian and so on.

        And yup I do think, if your observation were to be true, it would probably more down to shock than anything because people from the Middle East and Eastern Europe won't have seen much black people before. However, considering MOST middle-easterners are Muslims then they're not doing a very good job considering all races are considered equal in Islam!


        peaceeeee
