Racism against Sudanese

Are We Arab?
This is a question that has been asked over and over on the Sudanese Debates. Most of the Sudanese are agreed that we are Arab tribes that had been mixed with Nubian tribes which means we are originally Africans Not Arab. Is that explaining the Racism against Sudanese and dark skin in the Arab world
There was a time when racism in the Arab world towards people of darker skin was hidden. but now, the media is making it in public.
I will give two examples:

There is a news article published on Alarabiya.net "http://www.alarabiya.net/articles/2008/10/07/57853.html",
Alarabiya news channel is one of the top two channels in the arab news channels. It's an article about Southern Sudanese women who had been arrested by the police for wearing an indecent cloths (Short and Tight). It's a normal thing "Arabiya is doing it's work". But they added the ability for comments which made Arabs to express their unseen, cruel feeling about Sudanese girls.
The most shocking thing for me is that they don't know about Sudan as much as we know about their countries. Despite the fact that there are many Sudanese live in the Arabs countries. They don't know that the southern Sudanese primordially are Christians! And there is no authority for the GOS there!. So they are not Arabs if they consider us as Arabs and they are not Muslim. I took some of the rude comments here. I did not have time to translate most of them.
1- A comment was given by Gadah

She said:
God created gazelles "Arabs see gazelle as the most beautiful creatures" "referring to lebanese" and God created monkeys. She didn't not stop there, she mentioned that a lebanese singer Ragheb Alama "Who thinks himself the smartest singer in the Arab world" once said that Sudanese women are the ugliest women on earth.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
2- A comment is given by Mohammad Toaima who said "Let them wear what they want, they are so ugly no one would care if they wore cloth or walked butt naked"
2 A comment is given by a guy who called himself brother "There is no need to worry about them as they don't have anything remotely related to sexual appeal", his sentiments were replicated by another who called himself sssss.
Please check the link, there are more ugly comments..
Example Number Two:
A cartoon that was shown in Ramadan by a famous egyptian actor Moahmmed Hinaidi had at least three episodes referring to Sudan or Sudanese. It happened during the month of Ramadan on Satellite Arab TV. (http://www.alarabiya.net/articles/2008/10/08/57896.html)about a guy who refers to himself as syrian said this "Sudanese people are black in skin, but they OVERCOME this by being white hearted". Haaa, thank you very much Mr. Syriaan guy but no thanks.
Please check the link!
To be continued !

قال تعالى:لْأَعْرَابُ أَشَدُّ كُفْرًا وَنِفَاقًا وَأَجْدَرُ أَلَّا يَعْلَمُوا حُدُودَ مَا أَنْزَلَ اللَّهُ عَلَى رَسُولِهِ وَاللَّهُ عَلِيمٌ حَكِيمٌ (97) وَمِنَ الْأَعْرَابِ مَنْ يَتَّخِذُ مَا يُنْفِقُ مَغْرَمًا وَيَتَرَبَّصُ بِكُمُ الدَّوَائِرَ عَلَيْهِمْ دَائِرَةُ السَّوْءِ وَاللَّهُ سَمِيعٌ عَلِيمٌ (98) وَمِنَ الْأَعْرَابِ مَنْ يُؤْمِنُ بِاللَّهِ وَالْيَوْمِ الْآَخِرِ وَيَتَّخِذُ مَا يُنْفِقُ قُرُبَاتٍ عِنْدَ اللَّهِ وَصَلَوَاتِ الرَّسُولِ أَلَا إِنَّهَا قُرْبَةٌ لَهُمْ سَيُدْخِلُهُمُ اللَّهُ فِي رَحْمَتِهِ إِنَّ اللَّهَ غَفُورٌ رَحِيمٌ }التوبة-97-99.

شكراً للتعليق

دة طبيعي انو العربية ترفض تنزلها.
الغريبة انو معظم العرب كانو بيتهموا قناة العربيةانها موالية للغرب واسرائيل .
من وجهة نظري...انو قناة تسمح بنشر التعليقات دي علي موقعها..حتماً لا تستحق الاحترام

Well taha it’s not against Sudanese only it against all black skin. For some reason Arab believes they are higher levels than other and the noticeable point that they always complain about others are racism.

I know it doesn’t matter for you what race you are from human is human but if there is choice its way better be Nubian or African than being Arab.

As usual you 2 steps faster I was planning to make a post about that same point and I’ll.

Very good start and as I know you that blog will be light spot.

Hi Taha, it's great to see you've started a blog at last. I remember last time we met you were mentioning it!

Hope you keep it up. I'll check back often - so long as you still keep a little bit in English!

Although I am now going to renew my Arabic lessons. I sent you an email, saying I'd started a new job, and they'd really like it if I could speak / read Arabic.

Racism is ugly no matter how you say it. We are all created with the same parts. I don't understand why some groups think that they are above others.
