Before all of my fans (like Allahsoldier) pounce on me, that is not me asking the question. It is a Somali woman asking it on a comment thread I just happened to come across.
The thread (here) begins:
Hey guys, I enjoyed talking to your guys the last week or so, but I have noticed many things that are unsettling. I have noticed how racist we somalis are. I must have been blind my whole life but when i took a step back I’ve notice we are a VERY racist people.
For example the below words are what we use to describe other people:
Blacks/other africans: meadow, jareer, adoon, gorilla, monkey, apes, animals, former slave, Abeed.
Thats all i got, but why are we soo racist? As muslim aren’t we suppose to be not racist.
No comment! The discussion continues and was an interesting read.
