My husband is from pakistan..... adult content

My husband is from pakistan and we have been married for 12 years. We have four wonderful kids together and a great relationship but..............everyone gives him hell because of where he is from like yesterday he was pulled over and taken to the pd for "questioning" as they say. This is bs because it has been this way since sept 11 when the towers were taken down.... Anyone else married to a pakki? Advice? Thanks!

  • I'm so sorry he has to go through that, and you too! Unfortunately it's something that is a reality for many people of that nationality, and the Muslim religion. It's a reality for our nation that we need to be on the lookout for terrorists, I wish this wasn't happening to you though.

  • Honestly, the only people we have from Pakistan in my town are the doctors and their kids...and they are not given a hard time at all. One couple are pediatricians, then two brothers and one of their wives do internal medicine. I would be pissed for them if they were ever harassed like that.

  • That's wrong. If it happened to me, I'd hire an attorney.

  • Wow! That is weird and super frustrating! I've know a bunch of people from various arabic countries (Iran, Pakistan, Egypt, etc.) and none of them have been harrassed in any way. Some of them have even been there when bad stuff went down (they escaped) or have families who were involved in politics... still, no mistreatment from FBI or anything. But then again, I've always lived in big cities where different folk are just normal. I'd talk to a lawyer. Something doesn't seem right here.

  • I'm not, and this may be redundant, but I'm terribly sorry for you and your husband. Racial profiling is outrageous. My dad is venezuelan, but looks arabic, and refuses to pick me up @ the airport b/c the police always question him. It infuriates me, so I can only imagine how you feel...
