    • I have found that those who are most perturbed by threads like this are those who are dark skinned and think everything is about racism rather than preference. Perhaps they are defensive because of racism that they experience in their daily lives. Or maybe even been rejected by a suitor's family because of skin color. Though I can't relate, I do understand.

        I think the last page or so are comments from 'white' skinned people saying that preferring a certain ethnicity is just a disguise for racism

          • Yes, I actually have and still feel it when I walk into a masjid as a white revert and people look at me twice because they think I could be an informant, undercover law enforcement, or just a bigoted Trump tard looking for trouble. And as for reading the entire thread before commenting, I read enough of it to post what I posted.

              • some? That would be me sister, unless there is another person who said that they haven't read the whole thread

                let me know because if it is only me that you are addressing, it's better for you to tell me directly then to pretend you aren't 'addressing anyone specifically' when you are

                this is getting childish with you avoiding my posts yet you are reading them (better to ignore it all together or discuss together)

                  Yes, some. There are 13 pages of replies. But, if you want to assume that the shoe fits you, go for it; nothing I say or do is going to change you being angry about it.

                              I'm arab myself. I didn't generalize, I was simply giving an honest answer about my own personal experience. I'm known in my environment to always say what I think, but maybe I need to unlearn that. I apologize if I hurt people's feelings in the proces. That was not my intention in the first place.

                              I do feel that this ummah is far gone if muslims are going to treat eachother in hostile fashion because of differences of opinion or preferences. During the time of the prophet muslims would speak truth to eachother even if it hurt and would not treat eachother like enemies because of it. For example regarding people's looks (if someone had a less appealing feature they wouldn't shy away to describe this feature as such).
