Is This Your Queen – Total Disparagement Against Black Men – Part 4

Exposing Corruption Under Every Rock


Yes, that’s right, an overweight, multi coloured weave wearing, fake eyelash sporting, heavy make up using, tatted up black witch has the audacity to release garbage like this, has this block of butter even looked in the mirror lately? You already know that if we were to strip her down to the bare basics, she would look like a hot mess. What is it with these fat black women, they seem to be more arrogant and stuck up then the slimmer ones. Of course she has a ghetto name, Inayah, what kind of a name is that?

Again, where is the love for black men, answer, THERE ISN’T ANY and black men who are still on the fence need to get this through their heads. These black harpies will rush to put out songs disparaging black men but you’ll very rarely if ever observe…

Arab/Muslim Racism: The divisiveness that permeates Detroit’s communities of color

Leah Vernon, who runs a popular Instagram account that celebrates being “fat, black and Muslim”, never formally studied Arabic but, growing up in Detroit, she learned the word abeed: the Arabic plural for slave, a derogatory term used to describe African Americans. Sometimes she heard the word while she and her mother were in attendance at predominantly Arab mosques in Detroit’s neighboring city of Dearborn. Other times, she heard it at “party stores”, small corner shops that dot Detroit and are almost always staffed by Arab cashiers, who often sit behind inches of bulletproof glass.

“Honestly, I heard it my whole life,” Vernon said. “I was called abeed so many times I never thought anything of it until a Somali friend, who speaks Arabic, explained to me, ‘No, they are calling us slaves.’ I have even heard it from 11-year-old kids.”

In some ways, talking about race in America has become easier. It wasn’t that long ago, in the late 1990s, when I was a graduate student in public policy at UCLA, that a professor asked me to disband a study group I co-founded for students of color because it was “divisive”. Twenty years later, I am back again in graduate school, this time for creative writing at the University of Michigan, and I am floored at the extent to which campus officials now encourage students of color to assemble, sometimes picking up the tab when they do so. But while there is, at last, a greater space in which to discuss institutionalized racism, too often conversations about race are limited to a white/non-white binary. As a result, prejudices within communities of color, and in particular the problem of anti-blackness within immigrant communities, routinely goes unchecked. The subject of these tensions comes up whenever I report from Detroit, especially once I turn off my recorder.

Arab/Muslim Racism: This blackface skit of “lazy” Sudanese re-exposes racism in the Arab world

A popular Kuwaiti television show has aired a skit that exposes the country’s problematic race relations.

Block Ghashmarah featured a skit in which Kuwaiti actors portrayed negative stereotypes of Sudanese people. The show aired during Ramadan on Kuwait 1, with each episode dedicated to mocking people from a different country, according to a BBC report.

In the episode targeting the Sudanese, all three actors are in blackface, smeared in dark brown make-up. One wears a wig with thick black woolly hair. Their characters are all reclining, and speak in a drawl that is meant to mock the Sudanese accent. As one character asks to marry the other’s daughter, they punctuate their words with “aaah,” right before the characters take a nap.


“Guys, this is 2018? What’s up with you painting your faces black?” asked Waleed Abdulhamid, a Sudanese teacher living in Canada. “You know, the Kuwaitis themselves, there [are] a lot of dark-skinned people, so why do you have to do this?”

If Kuwait TV wanted to portray Sudanese characters, producers could easily have hired Sudanese actors living in the country. While the skit’s main actor has since apologized, use of blackface and reliance on stereotypes and caricatures is nothing new in Kuwait or the other Gulf states.

As BBC journalist Abdirahim Saeed pointed out, Egyptian TV series Asmi We Ashgan also used actors in blackface with braided wigs to portray Sudanese. That show centers around two conmen pursued by a detective. In one episode, the blackface characters play a Sudanese father and daughter, trying to seduce a wealthy Egyptian man.


These shows are indicative of a much deeper problem with race in the Arab world. Even more harmful is the mistreatment of expat workers from Africa and Asia through the kafala system, which gives employers broad power over low-wage workers.

In countries like Kuwait, the vast majority of the labor force is made up migrants from Asia and Africa who often work as maids and construction workers—and end up caught in a system of racial hierarchy and exploitation.  The local population often has various skin shades, but lighter skin is preferred. In Egypt, the dark-skinned Nubian community routinely complains of racism and prejudice, writes journalist Mat Nashed: “The Arabic word for ‘slave’ is often colloquially used to address black Africans in the Middle East. Just think about the uproar—and how justified the anger—when racists refer to Arabs in an equally degrading way.”

Countries without a racially segregated past will at times try to absolve themselves from responsibility for fighting racism. Or—as the Netherlands does with Zwarte Piet (“Black Pete”)—they will point to their current diversity as proof that their society isn’t racist, even when dressing up as a much-loved Christmas mascot presents a clear example of blackface. Just as China has been forced to reckon with its race relations after outcry over blackface skits and its portrayal of Africans, the Arab world needs to face up to its own prejudice.

Correction: A previous version of this article had an incorrect spelling for the name of journalist Abdirahim Saeed.


Arab/Muslim Racism: Egypt blackface sketch about Sudanese spotlights racism in region

An Egyptian comedian has sparked anger by using blackface in a sketch and mocking Sudanese people, drawing attention to what experts say is a deeper racism problem in the region.

Speaking what she thought would pass as Sudanese Arabic, Shaimaa Seif, wearing blackface, chatted to Egyptian commuters on a bus as part of a sketch aired on the programme Sha’labaz.

The footage was broadcast by the local affiliate of Saudi-funded MBC, one of the largest entertainment channels in the region, and offended many in the Sudanese community who voiced their anger online.

There have been calls to boycott MBC, and the broadcaster has not apologised for the sketch since it was aired on May 10.

“Was this supposed to make us laugh? While you were filming we were protesting with the people,” said Marwa Babiker, a Sudanese doctor with a sizeable social media following.

She was referring to unprecedented mass protests in Sudan that led to the removal last month of longtime ruler Omar al-Bashir.

Others turned to social media to criticise negative portrayals of Sudanese people, just the latest such incident involving Egyptian entertainers.
