I was so mystified when I saw the commercial advertising this new tv show, I didn't even get the name. Has anyone seen this? Whoopi and the Arab guy together on a new sitcom, both acting the bafoons for white folks. Since the Iraqi war it seems that the U.S. has been trying to create a link between Black people and Arabs, first through the Muslim religion and now a tv show. WTF?

What do you think their aim is with this show? I knew Whoopi was doing a new show but not with an Arab guy? Is he her mate on this show? What is so mystifying about this show? Is it the boofoonery or that she is with an Arab guy if thats the case?

The Black man and woman in America is a nation of people; a stolen and lost nation, but a nation none the less. The U.S. just destroyed Iraq in thirty days and has allocated close to $80 billion to rebuild Iraq. The Black man and woman in America was terrorized and destroyed for well over four hundred years. How much do you think it would take to rebuild a nation that was destroyed and bombed for four hundred years if it takes $80 billion to rebuild a nation destroyed in thirty days?

This is great!!! Persian Iranian. What intrigue. You are who you say you are. God knows, I agree.

Is "Persian" the ancestral nationality of the Iranian? Clearly, there is no current nation named Persia. If ancestral nationality is the intent, is this because Iran, wholly or in part, was formerly named Persia?

Please explain your declaration.

Persian is the general cultural identity of those that live in Iran, but there are many different ethnic groups in the country. The Persians began migrating to Iran from Central Asia beginning in the 7th century BC.

I explained it because the others on this thread assumed the man was an Arab, when he clearly is not. That's like calling a Bantusu a Tonga or an Irishman an Englishman.

Persia was the name for Iran for many centuries due to the old Greek name, regardless of the leaders of Persia wanting people to call the country Iran.

************************************************I'm sorry, mystified was not the right word to use in this case. It was more like shock and awe. I couldn't believe what I was seeing. It is my strong belief that the Jews, who own the network are using Whoopi (under the guise of her Jewish faith) to draw an even closer link between Black people and the Arabs. No matter what this man's nationality in real life or his role in the sitcom, he is being perceived by white folks in the show, as an Arab, possibly a terrorist in the employ of a Black woman, who by the way, gives no indication that she is Jewish, on the show. This show combined with the already negative press of the DC Muslim sniper and the Black Muslim bomber in Iraq, to me draws a clear diliberately orchestrated connection between Black Americans and Arab Americans who white folks see as possibly trying to take down this country.

And I don't care if it is supposed to be comedy, when I heard phrases like "Oh you think we are all Arabs?" and "You're scaring the white folks", I can't help but think this is the intention, to leave that kind of stereotypic impression on the American people, under the guise of comic relief.
