Your photos are wonderful. :)
I’ve noticed something about American society. We don’t use Arabic words as slang in America. This is what separates Middle Eastern Americans from the rest of the minorities that we appreciate in our life.
Here is a list or sayings we’ve taken from other societies and races that we just don’t really see as different from an average white people saying.
Cinco de Mayo
Everything white girls love saying that were borrowed from African Americans
Fest *short for festival*
There are more that I could list, but I refuse. I personally believe this is absolute bullshit that we can’t use words from one of the most beautiful languages on the planet commonly.
Why do we feel the need to continue demonizing a people that have less of a chance or want of overthrowing our American government than any other, including Christian fascists that exist IN AMERICA!
Here’s a list of some I’m going to try and use just as a sociological experiment.
Salam! - Hi!
Esmee - My name is
Mabrook! - Congratulations!
‘Afwan! - I’m sorry, or I didn’t hear you right the first time
Jayed - Good
Haqqan - Really!
Onzor - Look
Sahibi - My friend.
There. Just learn some manners before you start insulting a group of people who want to live as normally as you do.
