I was recently getting gas a convientent store and asked the Arab looking guy behind the counter what was he (meaning what country was he from). He told me "I'm a mixed mutt". That kind of startled me because I wasn't asking about his race, so I made my next question more direct "What COUNTRY are you from?". And he says Egypt! That kind of startled me too! Too me, Egypt is not simply represented as "Arab", its represtented as simply White/Greekish! The actors who always plaY Egyptians in movies don't look "Arab" (which to me normally means having big eyes, a hooked nose and thick eyebrows), but simply dark haired White people (mostly dark haired NORTHERN Europeans).....
