Thread Name: Persians
Subject: RE: Persians
I have the feeling, from talking to maybe a dozen individuals over a couple of decades, that folks who call themselves Persian here (Mrrica) do so to avoid what being labeled as Iranian brings. I think they take advantage of our general ignorance that way... Smart... And avoid a lot of bigotry. Iran has an arguably well-deserved reputation for antiMrrican terrorism.
