I don't think the article said the Syrians didn't want to live next to Black people, but that they were disappointed/upset, etc., that because they were relegated to living quarters that are just as bad and/or worse than the worn-torn refugee camps they left . I think the article's main point was the fact that Black people are living in such quarters [neighborhood that is worse than a war-torn Syrian refugee camp] with no government officials ever promising to help them find better living...

Now, this is very interesting, and very predictable on the part of a predominately republican southern state. I'm sure the refugees were deliberately put there out of racism against them and at the same time to etch into their psychi a skewed picture of African Americans and/or predominately Black communities in America. It's not coincidence that they found a Black woman standing [or to stand] on the porch of likely the worse looking house in that area, so that that picture could be beamed...

Are Syrians considered "white?" I had a Syrian friend for a second when I was small, her parents were prejudiced as hell. I was too young to notice, but I knew something was wrong with them. They're not the color of European Snow Balls. They're covered with a "tinge" of melanin from some group or another. Guess it's kind of hard to move from a bombed city that speaks Syrian to a European city with black neighbors and bugs crawling up your walls. Like Koco says, you should be sent back or...

And so it goes moving westward. If they think it's bad now, wait until the fog rolls in so thick they can't see a few feet in front of them; when it rains and sleets at the same time and it starts to freeze as soon as it hits the ground; when they are caught in blizzards; when the wind blows so hard, it will lift them up and/or push them forward; when the temperature drops below zero and the wind chill factor is minus 20 degrees; and, when the heat in the house suddenly stops working, the...

No they're considered semites or Asiatic...maybe even middle eastern. Still...they need to take their asses back to their war torn country since they don't wanna LIVE next to blacks. They are nationless....washed ashore by the turbulent mediterrean[sp] sea....cold without food or water. They fell on the sand of Greece.....who didn't want their asses. And now? They THINK they get to pick and choose where they live in America? Take yall asses back. We got ENOUGH trouble here. But!
