it's not insulting, but it's inappropriate. 
1.) it's not you culture
2.) you're not making islamic culture look good
3.) using other people's culture to look "cool"
4.) if you have to question something, than don't do it.

cheqe ur privilege! 
it says saudi arabia
arabic + girls eyes is not islamic culture. 
but people 'use' other people's culture all the time, modify it, update it
it's not wrong you just wanna do it the right way
It's cultural appropriation. Shit is not cool at all.

It's like when you see white guys with dreads. Not cool
I'm not saying he should or shouldn't wear the shirt, but America is a melting pot of cultures, black culture in America while distinct also takes from white pop culture and white kids take from black culture, in America differen't cultures are constantly building off eachother and meshing, people from all over the world come here and assimilate with their own flava spiced in..... idk re-reading what youre saying im probably just taking out of my ass and taking what you said out of context.... already typed.... post reply
Cultural appropriation is more than just assimilating. In most cases, it's super negative and is typically done by whites. To me, cultural appropriation is the white washing of cultures so those in the culture no longer have a serious defining characteristic. Inspiration is fine but blatant ripping from a minority culture to seem cool or edgy is fucked up.

This shirt doesn't cross the line though in my opinion. But then again, I'm not Arabic so.

If we're content with focusing so much on placating an ass-backwards religion (or any religion for that matter) of stone-age morons, why don't we also scrap any art depicting humans or other living beings as Islam doesn't allow it. We should also get rid of such statues. Sorry Lady Liberty and Statue of David, but you're coming down. Oh, and we should probably implement Sharia law so that way we're not offending any Muslims by forcing a Western system on them, right? And then when someone commits something outrageous like letting a woman drive/vote, drinks alcohol, or paints a picture of a human, they can be prosecuted in the Sharia court. And we should have a zero-tolerance policy against people who badmouth Islam or burn Qurans. Right guys? We wouldn't want to insult Islam, would we?

^^^you sound like a nutjob,
most muslims over the world do not want or agree with sharia law, thats an invention of the radical insane mofos that deserve to be killed in the mid east, most of us(the good cool ones) stay with in our own religion and could care less about what others are doing,
when someone burns the quran yes we get upset-the same way christians would if we burned the bible,

Getting upset at burning a book is dumb as fuck. If I burned a Quran, does it really change anything YOU believe in? Of course not. It's a statement. Why should the statements in the Quran or any book be allowed, but the burning of it denied? Yet the world got their panties in a wad on different occasions when people burned Qurans or even scheduled to. That's retarded. I doubt Christians would all be behind the idea of burning Bibles either, but there's no denying that Islam enjoys a more quasi-sacred position seen as more politically incorrect to lambast. Quran-burning generates waves the world over, yet a government-sanctioned Bible burning (not that you'll see me condemning it) like that of Iran barely gets any coverage. I don't give a shit. Burn what you like. Just don't try to rationalize such non-rationalism.

In a perfect world, I wouldn't care what people believe. You could follow Islam, Timmy could be a Jew, John could be Christian, and Bob could worship Satan. But then people come from all angles and my lifestyle somehow becomes a problem for them. Islam says I'm a non-believer so need to be killed. The Westboro Church calls me a sinner for watching professional sports (apparently it's false idolatry). Islam states its bullshit will dominate the world. Christianity legislates slave ownership. Dipshits like Santorum want to ban pornography because of their religion. I've consumed alcohol. Will I go to hell? I also endorse birth control. Am I a bad person, Catholic Church? Worship what you want, but when YOUR religion involves ME, it's like "really dude? Now you've put me in a position to call you out on YOUR bullshit."

If you are ready to explain to anybody who will ask you "why are you wearing this ? ", go ahead.
Or else just don't.

Bruh...what are you talking about, you are giving us a bad name with your extreme lack of understanding how Sharia law works. Sharia Law is derived from Quran and Sunnah, "do not want or agree with it"...what? Maybe those idiots that call themselves Muslims and parade around like idiots spreading their own versions Islam might not want or agree with it. 

The shirt doesn't say Saudi Arabia lmao. It's the Shahada, or declaration of faith. So I guess by wearing that around it would mean you accept Islam? Idk if you do but that's probably the message people would get. 

 "Islam says I'm a non-believer so need to be killed."

 You pull out something thats been misquoted a million times and taken out of context, hooray!

And OP, if you think they'll harm you, I think you've run into the wrong people. We're not all delusional terrorists seeking to destroy infidels.

ha its my fault i said it says saudi arabia. should have said its the text from the saudi arabia flag i didn't have that real knowledge to flex. feeling like theres got to be a better way to say "i think islamic and arabic culture is cool" without 'appropriating' it or going for something controversial. cuz this text thing is reminding me of elementary school when i was coppin tees with japanese writing on them from kohls.

The city I live in is full of muslims and I'm afraid I'l be out in the street and a bunch of them will lynch mob me.
Allah himself should come down and scrape off the chalky white exterior you have the nerve to call skin. You fucking cornball this shit is HIGHLY offensive, I don't even like repeating what's written on it  

















































































 I have no clue what that squiggly shit says.
