Re: What Was the Last Episode of TV You Watched

The Haunting of Hill House I finally finished the series. Holy shit, this was sooooo good. I loved every second. Ramy Yeah.. I am tired of these types of stories being the only thing Arab Americans are telling but I am also tired of everything else depicting us as terrorists or other problematic Or...

Re: Netflix/Channel 4's Black Mirror

Striking Vipers was pretty wack. I had a few ideas of where it might go after they introduced the VR but it went in a completely different direction. Vipers was pretty much making a case for non monogamy, I am not about that but it raises a lot of good questions. Also, the episode was uncharacterist...

Netflix's When They See Us

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u3F9n_smGWY This was exceptionally, exceptionally, exceptionally well put together. This is a tearjerker. I don’t mean to take away from the rape victim but it should be acknowledged that the fact there is a social construct that convinces us that a white well-to-do si...

Re: 2018-2019 Awards Season

Congratulation to The Greenest Book for winning Best Picture. Such an inspiring story of a white man who had the courage to know a black man. How could anyone root against that? Cause if you really think about it, we are all the same ninjas. If no one got that that was from a Desus & Mero skit, lol....

Re: Desus & Mero



The brand is what? Stronger than ever.

The fact that they got AOC for their first episode is insane. Political analysts will be busy urban dictionary-ing all of Desus & Mero’s puns, lol. I hope Desus’s third eye is open and wreaks havoc.

Re: Football Discussion Thread

What's a non-eurocentric view of what "formulates a nation state"? The nation state is largely a western construction That was my point. It does not understand the formulations outside of those boundaries, like that Saudis are not innately different from Qataris or Kuwaitis or Emiratis. Lebanese ar...

Re: Football Discussion Thread

I feel like that is coming from a eurocentric view of what formulates a nation-state. I am getting way off topic here so I’ll leave it as, no it’s not the same. The history of the Arab world from 1700s onwards has had dozens and dozens of attempts at unity in the face of colonialist and imperialists...

Re: Football Discussion Thread

I wish you could see that we are all, one people. Arab or otherwise.£ Sorry, but this counterargument sounds reminiscent to the colour-blind “liberal” nonsense that we should only see one human race. I really dislike these types of deflections because the reality is we are all not in this together....

Re: Football Discussion Thread

Congratulations Qatar for their historic win in the Asian cup. I love that Arabs from other countries celebrated this win as their own. That made me happy. We should support each other regardless of our political difference. Whenever I fly thousands of miles to other Arab countries and hear the lang...
