This was a reply to my friend @saudkh on one of his tweets.
Dr. Jaber Yousef brought Kuwaitis together in one hand and in the other hand showed how some people can be arrogant. Dr Jaber lost his life to a low life that killed him because some parking issue.
See, we stick to this vision that as long as he is not Kuwait, it’s kind of fine. If the victim was let’s say Indian, would we make the same fuss? Let’s be real now..we won’t. We might even say expats are causing a problem in Kuwait.
Or let’s say the killer was let’s say Irani? Or Saudi? wil we react the same? Yes we will. Most probably politics and racism will take affect here and people will start blaming countries instead of individuals. Why?
Well sadly we are raised in a society where we believe that Kuwaitis do not do anything wrong. We were raised to assume things of different nationalities. We were raised that bedoons can be a problem. We took our belief and family as the most important thing and forgetting to respect others. We stereotype everyone.
Of course being raised like this is not only through the home culture (which I believe if the most important place to be educated) but media, friends, schools, political figures and recently social media.
A crime is a crime no matter what their nationality is. This gruesome murder should not pass by this easily and whoever killed Dr. Jaber should be sentenced to death in my opinion.
