  • What rolig said.

    Besides, this particular term is such a travesty you couldn't even spell it correctly. I suspect many people would have similar trouble.

  • It seems to me to be even more modern and appropriate, and more civil, to refer to people's ethnicity (if that's even necessary) by standard, non-derogatory descriptors: Osama bin Laden was an Arab (more specifically, a Saudi Arabian); Palestinians are, well, Palestinians; and Nina Davuluri is an Indian-American (more specifically, a Tulugu-American, if the Wikipedia entry about her can be trusted). Why group Arabs (or Moroccans, Algerians, Libyans, Egyptians, Palestinians, Saudi Arabians, Emiratis, Qataris, Bahrainis, Omanis, Yemenis, Iraqis), Berbers, Kurds, Turks, Armenians, Azeris, Georgians, Israelis, Iranians, Pakistanis, and Indians under such a peculiar label? What good does it serve?
