How many times have you been asked where you're from, only to hear the phrase "but you don't look Arab..."?
It's something you're bound to hear if you hail from an Arab country, due to years of false portrayal of Arabs in pop culture and media.
Arabs must be dark-skinned, must have dark-colored hair, and shouldn't know how to speak any other language fluently. Over decades, the world has viewed Arabs as a homogeneous group, disregarding the fact that each Arab country comes with its own culture and set of traditions.
So, Twitter user @LilMarak decided to share a simple tweet in an attempt to shatter this false perception ... and went viral for it.
"What am I supposed to look like? Shawarma?"
The Twitter user's savage tweet has been shared nearly 3,000 times.
