Our dear maria Khan, but you ain't no Arab either, so what is really your point ya roh baba?

I sure ain't an Arab :) you got that right. My point is, you mentioned;

"it says in Arabic a language that you cannot read because you ain't no Arab"

which implies you have to be an Arab to understand Arabic. But what about them people who ain't Arabs but can speak Arabic fluently as if its their first language i.e. people who have gained a degree in Arabic?
