But is it good for the Arabs?

I was going to blog about Busta Rhymes' new song Arab Money. The song talks about how great it is to be rich like an Middle Eastern oil sheik and be loaded with "Arab Money." I was going to write that maybe it's actually not bad for Arab's to be associated with wealth - unlike negative stereotypes about Jews being rich and covetous, rich Arabs don't really have any negative stereotypes as yet. I was going to say that if urban youths start wearing headscarves and talking in fake Arabic that it probably raises cultural awareness a smidgen.

But then I saw the video and realized the damn thing is ridiculous.
