Few ethnicities are more politically charged than the Arab ethnicity. If you grew up Arab, then you learned about the Palestinian plight before you learned to count, and you were faced with Arabphobia, Islamophobia, and all sorts of phobias that meant you had to do rhetorical somersaults to explain that: "we are not terrorists." It doesn't matter if you grew up in an Arab/Muslim country, the stereotypes followed you everywhere.
But there are other things that those living in an Arab household know to be true. No matter the year, no matter the country, #GrowingUpArab has a lighter side, and it ranges between downright cute and hilarious.
