  1. I read ur article on being afraid to speak Arabic and I apologize because I’m white and ur speaking of white people. Yes I’m not ignorant like them but I understand it’s cause is they believe the media. Fox tells them to act like that and CNN tells them not to act like that. So if they r ignorant to begin with then u shouldn’t be shocked about the behavior it is what it is and 2 wrongs don’t make a right. This is much bigger than u and ur article it’s the way it’s always been and I don’t see it changing in our lifetimes. I’m not condoning there bigotry but I am condoning the ignorant behavior it’s all they know. Thank u and I apologize
