Racism versus speaking the truth.

Reader comment on item: Advice to Non-Muslim Women against Marrying Muslim Men
in response to reader comment: Africa and The ME are beautiful

Dear Didi,I haven't at all encountered any racism here.
These wonderful women have been taken for a ride and merely expressing themselves and narrating their common experiences.When these are common,it's not racism.Truth is never racism.
I do agree,however,with your advice regarding adopting a cautious and pragmatic approach while dealing with all and not just MENA.
Similarly,all that is beautiful in the Middle East and Africa is thanks to the Western nations.Prior to and during Islam,there was nothing beautiful there.It's part modernism( in terms of today's sophistication) and part pre-Islamic Syrian,Byzantine,Egyptian,Great Persian and to some extent ,Central Asian art and architecture.
