There are racists in every religion. It just so happens that there is an engrained arrogance of Arab culture since it is historically so strong and proud. Not to mention the hatred some have for Christians and especially Jews.

I would tend to agree with most people here but here are some hard facts you may not like about an Arab country: 1-Jews are not allowed into saudi Arabia (racism) 2-Women have no rights in Saudi (That is sexism) 3-Muslim women are prohibited from marrying a non muslim man (racism) 4-Saudis believe that working as a made or a garbage man or low wage jobs is insulting and thus they bring people from other countries to these jobs for them (mostly asia,India and pakistan)-(Racism) 5-People of European and American nationalities do get paid more then Saudis in Saudi who get paid more than most other races like Indians and Philippinoes. Having said that I only target Suadi as that Is where I have lived. Also other countries prohibit certain ethnicities from entering as well. Like Cuba and the U.S. thailand and moany middle eastern countries, Isreal and Palestine...etc

i don't think all arabs are racist.but some of them are racist.for instance if a civil engineer works in dubai they pay you according to your passport nationality.they pay indians around 40000 rupees,for the locals it is 50000 but for westeners it is much more for the same qualification and work.

With any race you will come across the bad. Then you have the complete stupid ones that yell out stupid stuff at people for no reason at all. Best thing to do is just ignore it, don't add fuel to the fire, and know that you are a better person for doing this. Just remember you will get your good with your bad. Sometimes you see more of the bad than you do of the good.
