quote of the day

“What race are you?” she asked me. “Are you African or Asian?”

“I’m like Othello – Arab-African”, I said to her.

“Yes”, she said, looking into my face.

“Your nose is like the noses of Arabs in pictures but your hair isn’t soft and jet black like the Arabs.”

Season of Migration to the North, Tayeb Salih.
