This week, we explore an often-overlooked issue in the Arab world; racism towards Black Arabs. In this episode, Kerning Culture reporter Ahmed Twaij looks at racism in his own community, taking us from his Iraqi roots, through to modern day slurs still commonly used in many Arab communities around the world.

This story originally aired on Kerning Cultures, a podcast telling stories from across the Middle East and North Africa and the spaces in between.

Featuring: Ahmed Moneka, Marwa Jaber, Dr Maytha Al-Hassan, Qazwini, Malcolm X, Mahmoud Abumayyaleh.
