    My God you are so full of hate Ruby. I remember you 23 years ago in Canada when you were turning your back on your own Lebanese culture. You even hated your “Lebanese” nose and changed it!!! I find your hypocrisy hideous. Do you not remember?????? I’m disgusted that you continue to perpetrate YOUR ideas of hatred instead of trying to bridge the gaps that were made in past. The past had nothing to with the “privileged hurt white woman” of today and your argument does not stand. Address whatever issues you have with your own past. Get off our backs. We didn’t do anything to you.
