Anonymous asked: Hey I'm black and I like a Lebanese girl and she's Muslim and her parents don't know about us. We can't be together exclusively or see each other because if they found out they'd go crazy. I can't see her and it sucks. Is their any way for us to tell them and her still be cool with her family but also be able to date me?


Answer:

Hey dude. Sorry you’ve fallen into this age old dilemma of black boy loves Arab girl. It’s a complicated scenario and I will do my best to answer your question in general terms. Keep in mind I am Muslim but not Lebanese. Muslims vary a lot from family to family, country to country, so I can only speak in general terms and based on my own experiences in Jordan and America. Generally speaking, Arabs have a problem with their daughters marrying black men. There are many black Arabs in the middle east and they marry among themselves. A black Arab man knows not to approach a non-black Arab girl’s family, regardless of the purity of his intentions. As fucked up as that is, it is the general reality in the Middle East. I’m not sure if she let you know about this - it’s an ugly and unpleasant topic to discuss. So in addition to the racial aspect of this dilemma, there is the religious aspect: you are not Muslim. Muslim women are expected to marry Muslim men. If your girl’s family is super religious and not-racist, you could easily transcend this hurdle by converting to Islam. But I have a hunch, since you’re writing to a silly girl (me) on tumblr for assistance and because you’re a young black man in America (or some other western country I assume), that marriage hasn’t entered your mind at this stage. This brings us to the third aspect of your problem, the cultural aspect. Again, generally speaking, (and this might be changing in Lebanon, which has always been slightly more liberal than other Arab countries) dating, in the Western sense, wherein two young people kick it and go out and have sex and get to know one another pretty intimately with no strings attached, is not accepted in Arab culture, whether you are Muslim or not. Which, as you can see, makes it hard to answer your question briefly. How can you tell a Muslim girl’s Muslim parents that you want to date their daughter with favorable results? In my opinion there is no way to do so. If you are serious about one another and you know exactly what you want out of this relationship, out of a marriage with this person, and are willing to become Muslim, the best case scenario is: you convert, sincerely, on your own terms, and approach your girl’s fam, informing them of your desire to marry their daughter, and see where it goes from there…But to go to them and let them know you’re dating, solely to relieve yourself of the burden of keeping the relationship a secret - this will not be received well. I don’t recommend meeting any Arab girl’s parents unless you’re very serious about the girl in question. Arab men only introduce women to their family when they are very serious about marriage - it goes both ways. Dating and parents generally don’t mix in our world (of course there are exceptions, particularly in the West). I hope this is helpful - Good luck!

Answer:

Well, I’ll tell you a secret: when you move out of your parents’ home, arab girl problems give way to actual real life problems and you don’t even have time to make fun of the little hang ups you once had with your culture.
