A word that most uneducated Westerners use to describe:
1. a man of Arab descent
2. a woman wearing a veil
3. any non-Westerner with a beard who seems a bit sketchy
Dick: 'Hey Bob, check out that Ay-rab lookin' fellow over there. He's wearin' a funny dress type sorta thing and has a beard. Ya reckon he's one of them Oh-sama Bin Laden-type people who bombed them towers?'
Bob: 'No, Dick, that's Juan, the gardener wearing a stylish garment made of linen. He told me yesterday that he has lost his razor. I doubt he's a terrorist. Come on, I'll watch you get drunk and beat up your cousin/wife.'
