This is the ugly truth: Racism and anti-blackness in the Arab world is a common practice and a subject so taboo that many have convinced themselves that it doesn’t even exist. But for those of us who live in these societies, and who are caught at the intersection of black and Arab identities, it is undeniable. In this podcast by Kerning Cultures, producer Sara Elhassan looks at racism in the Arab world.
