France! I completly lost the uniform reference, but hopefully it’s a legit WWII one!
orangesage said: Can I tell you about racial stereotypes?? Basically I'm a bit light skinned, which is a bit normal for Arabs who live in the Levantine area (Jordan, Palestine, Syria and Lebanon) so when I was in America, people thought I was Italian or German or French and it was quite funny seeing people guessing where I was from xD Though this girl left me at a party because I said the truth and told her I wasn't Italian xD
Thanks for sharing your experience! I’ve read genetic studies show that Europeans, Caucasians and Middle-Eastern people actually share a lot of genetic haplogroups. The gene for fair skin found in Europeans is believed to be of either Indian or Middle-Eastern origin, actually and that’s probably why loads of people in the Levantine area are just as light or even lighter than many Europeans. So yep, fair skin? Nope, not a super special European thing only. Like even within communities that speak Arabic, there are differences in genetic make-up. Egyptians, for example, have a bunch of unique gene markers that make them a people genetically a little different from many people in other Arab countries- because they have DNA from their Ancient Egyptian ancestors- who were Africans indigenous to the Nile valley.
^^^^Iraqi Yazidi children- sorry this photo is very weirdly cropped when I found it. Fair skin, blonde hair or light-coloured eyes isn’t European only, yeah.
I’m glad you can see the funny side of it :) Because for many others it’s quite distressing and people try to stop them from practising their own culture because they look “too European” to belong to a non-European culture.
A Palestinian kid saying why they don’t want to make peace with Zionists. Do you need another reason now?
this really illustrates well how the asymmetrical retaliation and disregard for Palestinian civilian casualties on Israel’s part is not only inhumane but harming Israel itself- Palestinians who might have been moderates in another life find it very hard to reconcile with Israel at all when their family members are indiscriminately killed.
