"Those comments opened my eyes and made me realize that racism was not just the stuff of Malcolm X and the U.S but of ours as well.  I remembered my elementary school friend Mojib, also a Pakistani, and how my friendship with him was ridiculed by my older cousins." http://www.iranian.com/main/2009/jan/feeling-superior

"The Ahwazi Arab minority is one of many minorities in Iran. Much of Iran's Arab community lives in the south-western province of Khuzestan, which borders Iraq. Most are Shi’a Muslims but some are reported to have converted to Sunni Islam, heightening government suspicion about Ahwazi Arabs. They often complain that they are marginalized and subject to discrimination in access to education, employment, adequate housing, political participation and cultural rights...In 2005, dozens were killed and scores, if not hundreds, arrested during and following the demonstrations. The event sparked off a cycle of violence in the province, with fatal bomb attacks, followed by further arrests, unfair trials and at least 15 executions." http://www.iranianminorities.org/2011/05/ai-document-iran-arbitrary-arrests.html
