I feel really upset/angry making this post. The word 3abeed/3abd pronounced abeed (عبيد) is an arabic term that translates to the word slave/slaves. So you’re probably wondering why these arabs are talking about slaves in the 21st century. Well this word is used to refer to black people as slaves… And I thought I’d search this word up on twitter to see what I found. I was angry, confused, sad and all sorts when I first read these tweets. Most arabs follow Islam, which is a religion of peace that bans any sort of racial discrimination yet these arabs find it funny to casually use this term to refer to black people, my people, our people. The fact that most of these people live in the west and know about the civil rights movement, they still insist on using these words to degrade my people. This is modern day racism for you.
Arabs are one of the most racist pieces of shit around. Can we please not forget that they’re also imperialists just like the Europeans so they won’t EVER get a pass just because they’re POC and cause of situations like Palestine.
I don’t know why y’all angry, its common knowledge the ENTIRE FUCKING WORLD hates us.
Wow. That’s crazy, and most of the muslims I know are black, you would think since a large part of the muslim community in the U.S is black there would be some type of solidarity…
Are we surpised doe….? Really what is solidarity…? It does NOT EXIST for and with black people… we aint got not friends…I’m so shocked ( sarcasm) but I hear to many stories .. and see this bullshit here.. .we can talk about racism and anti-blackness until we are blue in the face.. but we know even if we got rid of white supremacy Black people would still have to deal with racist bullshit the world over…. trust no fucker I guess
Ugh. Disgusting. Not surprising but still hurtful as fucking fuck. Not even black, slave. Nice.
Any shock is from a lack of knowledge of the scope and magnitude of the Arab Slave trade.
WAS I THE ONLY ONE SAD ABOUT THIS? Seeing them be all friends and shit at the beginning, KNOWING THAT IT WAS INEVITABLY GOING TO END!? god damn prequels.
I thought it was going to be Sully behind the door when I was watching in theaters. The biggest plot twist ever was this combined with the fact that Sully was a major douche-canoe for 75% of the movie.
