After 9/11 a rumor went around school that my father and i were terrorists and only my close friends would still speak to me. Everyone would make jokes like, "Hey, have you talked to Osama lately? When's the next terrorist attack going down?" I am very proud of my heritage and all the things Arabs have accomplished. In Mississippi where i live, everyone is concerned about the racial issues between African Americans and whites, but no one ever considers that Arabs are descriminated against by everyone, not just whites. Even in college i had a friend who had just moved to America from Iran and everyone would say he's a terrorist. It made me so angry i did a speech about it.
i can't wait to get to know all of you and learn about my heritage.
Here's pictures of me under the cut
