I have never in my life met an arab who has identified as white. This white girl I work with insisted I was white. White people have never accepted arabs as their own kind and we have never shared the same privileges they have and although all human beings are biologically 99% the same I still feel like there’s a gigantic ass difference between white people and arabs atleast in the way society treats us, enough for me to wanna identify as something separate from them. Being Caucasian has nothing to do with skin color or being white its used in forensic science to describe a skeleton/skull type and includes all sorts of people and skin colors so don’t tell me I have to identify as white because of that. My dad is dark skinned as hell it wouldn’t even make sense for him to identify as white it would feel like a joke. The idea of calling middle eastern people white is only a thing because white people wanted to be able to say jesus christ was white. So please respect our wanting to identify as our own different thing because you’ve always treated us like we’re this different thing.
Natasha gurl if you’re reading this I apologize on behalf of the internet. The internet isn’t the most patient or forgiving place I’m sorry you have to keep dealing with angry impatient people who feel entitled to your stuff. Props to the whole puppycat team for working under all this psychotic pressure the internet puts on people.
Arabs are not white.
