Jews vs Arabs

While in France back in college, I was often seen as Arabic. I lived in a small area in the south which was well populated with northern Africans.

But I wasn’t Arabic. In fact, I was working on walking away from the Christian faith of my past. So much of what I learned in France was that culture is diverse, and it largely influences one’s beliefs. Born in America, likely Christian. Afghanistan, likely Muslim. Etc. Easy.

People are accused of poor stereotypes no matter what, because people born to certain parents, closed-minded parents, teach their kids to not accept difference and diversity.

I got lucky. But I was on a road to nationalism and bigotry if I didn’t walk away from where I came. Phew.

Take a look at this video. It’s worth a look.
