"Muddled Images", by Dina N., sincerely touched me. As a Mexican-American, I can understand how people can judge and categorize based on your appearance. When Dina said, "The Egyptian race is a mix of African, European, Arab, and Asian influences," I realized that your cultural heritage varies from everyone else. The world is so diverse, that many people get labeled and thrown into a pot of "Blacks," "Asians," "Whites," or "Hispanics." Reading this article helped me appreciate my ethnicity and brought me into view of the million cultural combinations ther are in the world.
