We call that a hypocrite.
But, here’s the thing. Arab women are not vessels for white women to pour themselves and lose themselves in; we are not bangles or eyeliner or tiny bells on hips. We are human beings. This dance form is originally ours, and does not exist so that white women can have a better sense of community; can gain a deeper sense of sisterhood with each other; can reclaim their bodies; can celebrate their sexualities; can perform for the female gaze. Just because a white woman doesn’t profit from her performance doesn’t mean she’s not appropriating a culture. And, ultimately, the question is this: Why does a white woman’s sisterhood, her self-reclamation, her celebration, have to happen on Arab women’s backs?No, fella, HERE'S the thing:
First of all, not ALL Arabic women are brown skinned.
Last I checked, white women are human beings, too.
So, maybe we could compare this to something found in the United States: Hula dancers
In Hawaii, it is not unusual at all to find lighter skinned women hula dancing in a troupe . Do I frown and act disgusted that the woman isn't Polynesian? No!
Fella, you need to take a long hard look at yourself and what you are actually saying.
