Hey Julie,

Whilst people of the western culture are not directly oppressed because largely we view them as the majority in control of the political atmosphere.

I was inspired by what I witnessed in South-Africa (controversial subject to discuss, I might add) but I did witness oppression against people that were white in their skin colour.

I’ve also witnessed Middle-Eastern men claim white-women as “Sexual feast” because that’s how they perceive them.

Hence, while I wholeheartedly agree with your insight and thank you for providing a counter argument; I’ve already felt that there needs to be a balance to be provided in this atmosphere we live in currently where “white-shaming” seems to be developing as a culture. It’s sad and it’s heartbreaking because the most wonderful of people in my life were and are “white”, yet they feel constantly apologetic in what is now a seemingly sensitive atmosphere and I feel guilty for why it has come to this.

For why an entire race is suddenly being made to feel guilty for when throughout recent history, they have attempted to help make things better. When we in the Middle-East failed to do so, all we did was complain.

Thank you so much for your lovely comment, feel free to write back — it was deeply affectionate of you to leave such a kind response.

Warm Regards and Much Love,
Nabeel.
