Well true those from Muslim families have seriously screwed up Islam, like those stupid Pakistani, Egyptian pride parades with haram music and women half naked with hijabs on and boys dressed like rappers.
Or those silly Hindu style weddings that Desi Muslims have with men and women mixed. Or even worse the Muslims who mix paganism or black magic like Moroccan women and many African Muslims, like cutting words out of the Qur'an and rearranging the words to curse someone and put it in their food.
Same time though, even converts get suckered into this garbage. Now you see converts going to Hookah bars or learning Urdu instead of Arabic. And if they marry someone who came from a Muslim family, they often adopt the culture of their wife or husband. Like this one White convert who married a Moroccan woman, he wears Moroccan clothes all the time and learned Berber. Or this one woman who married a Turk, she stopped wearing hijab and adopted Ataturk ideals.
Or you have for instance, American converts who are so disturbed by the behavior, bad habits, weird beliefs and treatment of wives and children from Arabs and Asians, that they only associate with each other because to them those Asian and Arab Muslims are backward. Like they have a beard, they memorize Surahs, study Arabic, try to follow the rules, and then some Pakistani comes in who just married his daughter off to her first cousin and an Egyptian walks in the masjid reeking of cigarettes, with a big mustache and habibi da blaring from his iphone.
What is comes down to is a Convert or someone born to a Muslim family who is seeking Islam will do so without having cultural, racist, nationalistic garbage mixed in because they will see it contradicts Islam. Converts may appear better and usually are, but even they can get corrupted if they converted over emotional reasons rather than religious ones(and many are converting for the wrong reasons)
