Today,I was reading Jordanian blogger Toloy's Box writing about her African or black friend when he or she was visiting Jordan ,Toloy writes "My friend told me he had never been so conscious of his skin color, of being “black,” as much as when he was in Jordan. He told me stories about random guys calling him “Abu Samra” and laughing, about people’s insistence that he was not from the U.S.A but from somewhere else “originally.” No really, originally, where are you from? — that’s what they used to ask him"
My opinion ,we are racist to the core toward any body that does not resemble white or light skin person or any body is not from Jordan or "real" Jordanian (الاردني القح)
as Jordanian always refer to as to who is real Jordanian and who is not,and i hear that so many times when "real" Jordanians descuss the Palestinians presence on jordan's soil as a Balgekee or intruders (دخيل او دوخلاء).
When we descuss African American or "brown"skin people we always call them and describe them as عبد أو عبيد which literally means in Arabic slave or slaves and I found this description , derogatory and most racist word to describe ,refer and pontificate about black people.
What do you think?, give me your intput and be honest about it.
