Yeah, because Arabs are never racist against Muslims of other races.

It's another one of those staggeringly wealthy Arab nations where most of the population are non-native and are just there to service the fat, lazy Arab natives.

what ticks me off is the dad... he wants to move to a country where he is accepted... good, go back and don't come back.. at least give your spot to an immigrant that deserves it... and please don't come back
