maybe that is why

When watching stuff on TV like say if a news channel shows a short documentary type video from a North African country I have heard the people use some French words when speaking Arabic. In Moroccan Arabic, do you like use some French words which have kind of like come to become part of Moroccan Arabic vocabulary. I speak Hindi and we often use several English words when speaking like team, we also have some words that we borrowed from English but have been altered to be easier to pronounce in Hindi like tomato is tamaatar. We also may often use English words for some certain emotions or technical vocabulary for which the Hindi equivalent is probably some Sanskrit or Persian word which is not used in the common everyday talk.

I can't lose sense of attachment to my race so I can't get mad at being called African or White. Guys, don't you feel ashamed to deny your origin? lol..
