    My Dad is actually from Lebanon, and YES they are some of the most racist people in the world. My Dad is probably one of the most logical and smart people I know. However, he refers to black people with an Arab word "Abdeh" or "Abeed" which basically means slave in English. I asked him why he would call them such a name, and he actually responded with "because that is what they are". I think that is probably one of the only things I don't respect about my Dad, otherwise he is a pretty good guy. Arabs are racist, but they would never be directly racist. They are more "behind your back" racists.
