Hi guys I started a message board for Persian medical and dental student but someone suggested we should make it middle eastern. Coooolll....I think we should start posting messages here for each other...My friend is hispanic and every year they have the meeting of Hispanic medical student in DC, so why cant Middle eastern have this also.....UNITY....so anyways I hope some people would be interested in this idea....my name is Khashayar Sarabi, GW class of 2006........

maybe we can get enough middle easterners to one day outnumber indians in the medical field. man i think hell would have to freeze over twice before that ever happens!

hey bro,

unfortunately ive never been to southern california (or tehrangeles). i know there are so many iranis there, its crazy. i would like to go sometime. what part of iran are you from? i have lived in tulsa my whole life. my dad is from kazeroun(in fars) and mom from abadan.
and what you say about middle easterners not sticking together and helping each other is very true (unfortunately).

how about we get over our ethnocentrism and help everyone out. yes, be proud of your heritage, but striving to help out 'your own' is a bit strange. who is your own? are you living here? than i am your own. get it? evolve out of ethnocentricity.

i've seen white medical student threads, black medical student threads, indian threads, middle eastern threads, hispanic threads etc..ethnocentrism, ethnocentrism. the longer we keep hyphens, the longer we think people treat us differently.

the OP spoke of UNITY. if your goal is to unite only middle eastern -americans, then your goal is to live in division. i'm not into it.
