8 Things That White Guys Say To Middle Eastern Girls
So I’ve had guys from all over say the most heinous things about my Middle Eastern heritage. But for some reason, white guys have taken the cake every time. Here are a few things white guys have said to me in the past. #flirtyracism
6.“Are you super Muslim? Is your family fundamentalist?”
This is a really weird question to ask someone you’ve just met but for some reason Middle Eastern girls get asked this a lot. Yes, I’m an Islamic fundamentalist, that’s why I’m over here throwing back whiskey shots and not praying in the corner of the bar.
“Sunni or Shiite?”
Another really strange thing to ask someone you just met at a bar. What does it matter to you, does you’re Anglo ass even know the difference? Also there are plenty of other religions in the Middle East you ignorant loser, so take that and dip it in some hummus.
