Arab Americans! Why are you celebrating Ms. USA?

Post asserts that the winning of Ms. USA by Lebanese American won’t do much to change perceptions of Arabs in America. Looking at Black America, many non-blacks started listening to rap music. That gave them a very warped sense of who we are and many started using the n-word and thought it was OK because of what mainly White executives produced. Are Arabs trying to convince America that you can pole dance too? The problem America has is not with Arab women, it’s with Arab men. Is this going to change screening at the airport or other racial profiling? If we want to have a true appreciation of the Arab experience in America, let’s learn about their contributions to medicine, science, math, politics, etc. If we don’t do this, we will just shift the image of Arabs from terrorists to something superficial and both images will hurt them in the long run. Trust me. We’ve been there as a Black people.
