    Arabs are horrible, racist?

    We've all seen or heard of plenty of examples of things Arabs do, from being habitual buggerers of boys to treating foreign workers contemtably, that would lead us to believe that generaly they are horrible cunts.
    Having made a few trips to the M.E. I hold that belief myself just from witnessing their general behaviour.
    Is it racist to state that one believes that?

    If you're talking about individual experiences then probably not, but if you're lumping that upon the entire group then probably so...

    I don't like the religion, and there's a lot, LOTS, I don't like about their culture too, but I've met many nice Arabs.
    How do I post these pictures???

    I wonder how many people who claim they're not racist do so on the basis of that definition?

    What part of that could the likes of koojo or piwi sensibly argue against?

    Would the defence be 'but i've never advocated millions of jews should have been exterminated'?

    It's like claiming to not be sexist because you're not the yorkshire ripper.

    .
    Going by that definition, Muslims feel that they are superior because they and only they worship the one true God and his Prophet and unbelievers are lowly inferior infidels .
    So by definition, all Muslims are racist

    On what basis have you determined I'm 'racist'.
    In my experience Arabs are horrible, (and I realize I'm generalizing here, but as is usually the case when I generalize, I don't care.)

    There was a poll attached to this. It didn't seem to take, without it the thread is weak.

    Ridiculous.
    Most 'races' (for want of a better term) generally display specific characteristics, it's where stereotypes derive from, like them or not they exist for a reason.
    Willys definition
    the belief that all members of each race possess characteristics or abilities specific to that race,
    Seems to suggest that it's racist to acknowledge the fact.
    This
    especially so as to distinguish it as inferior or superior to another race or races.
    aside.
    The Germans are stereotyped as perfectionists for a reason, the french as easy going, the Scots as frugal for a reason.

    Is there a stereotypical Thai?
    From reading TD I would guess most posters who live in Thailand and deal with Thais on a daily basis would have a stereotypical somchai in mind..
    Maybe if I met or observed a few nice Arabs I might form a different opinion, but so far I haven't.
    If that makes me racist then so be it.

    Generalising is obviously in accurate

    I've visited about 13 Arab speaking countries and worked lived in 6 they are all very different

    Morroccos tolerant easy going relaxed mainly,very homophobic ex colony
    Libya leess said the bette
    Egypt awful smelly hellhole lovely people,Qatar opposite
    Bahrain glssy repressive shithole the shia majority fine folks pro Iran
    KSA wel most people in KSA are not Arabs and I found the B Deshis philipinos (Pinoys) Afghans easier to relate to than the rather dour Saudis but did get freindly with a few who jhad all graduated in USA so used to more than one dimension

    Palestinians have Christian and muslim friends,I think we all know why thye are upset

    Oman lovely folks prefer them to Australians or English,great sense of humour ,clowns who did not take themselves too seriously like myself,be happy to live there if I could get a residency for my wife.

    UAE Khvnts who attract khvnts some of the nastiest folks outside of New York,mean,vivuous arrogant,extremely racist to the Indians,whteys and other sand pit dwellers who service them,that is an awful generalisation I know hypocrisy but Ive never ever met a single one I liked,the doctor at Al Ain who Iliked turned out to be a secret Christian from Damascus poor sod.

    To answer theOP its not a muslim thing,Its not an Arab thing,plenty great Yemenis Iranians Malays Bosnians Tukrs I've known amd socialised with over the years

    I think its a Wahabi muslim repressed homosexual thing angry wankers
    I used to have a job at a calendar factory.
    I got the sack because
    I took a couple of days off.

    I see Fluke is on the thread and, as I have absolutely no interest in getting into a dialogue with him, I will simply say:

    I lived in Saudi for two years. It was not for the money, it was a directed assignment by my employer; my salary was the same as it would have been in some place other than Saudi. I hated Saudi Arabia. I never met a Saudi worth a shit. They bring nothing to the world. If the country and the Saudis all vanished tomorrow, it would not create a ripple, other than as relates to oil.

    I traveled in Egypt. It was a filthy country. The people were filthy. Their clothes were filthy. They stunk.

    I am blessed to have had little contact with Arabs in my life. What little I had, I hated.

    Forgot Bahrain. Went across the new causeway from Saudi. It sucked. Saudi with beer.

    BTW D44, Libya and Morocco are in North Africa.

    Bigot is the most overused word in the language these days.
    I'm sure no one actually knows what it really means.

    A lot of those people wouldn't consider themselves Arabs.
