People's prejudices are often based on one hated characteristic when other characteristics are acceptable. Arab is a nationality, not a skin color or a religion. In general, int the US there is a hierarchy. Different areas of the US embrace different hierarchies. Here's one-
Caucasion, Western European ancestry protestant
Caucasion, Eastern European ancestry, Jew
Caucasion, Western European ancestry Catholic
Caucasion, Western European, protestant or catholic
Caucasion, Eastern European, protestant or catholic
Black, African, protestant
Caucasian, Hispanic American Ancestry, catholic
Brown-skinned, Hispanic American Ancestry, catholic
Black African, Muslim or catholic
Caucasian or Brown-skinned Hispanic American, catholic
Caucasion, Arab Ancestry, Christian
Caucasian, Arab Ancestry, Muslim
Black, Americans, Christian
Black American, Muslim
Caucasion, Arab American, Christian
Caucasian, Arab American Muslim
I live in a very multicultural community. Lots of Arab, Jew, Asian (which I didn't even include above) families who are both new immigrant and established for generation.The prejudices can be very subtle or criminal

You ought properly to say "we" Arabs not "us" Arabs. Remaining islamist and not becoming Christian keeps you from assimilation. In the early days of the Church there were Jews becoming Christian and pagan Greeks and Romans becoming Christian and a great deal of blood from different races mixed in the new religion. Early Christians had Jewish and Greek and Roman and Visigoth blood.

Race has nothing to do with it. Jews and Arabs are biologically the same but they hate each other. Greeks and Turks are biologically the same but hate each other too. Japanese look down upon anyone who isn't Japanese.
In short, you don't have to be very different to be mistreated. If you are not part of the cultural majority then you can expect be mistreated.
Just a reminder, Christians in Muslim lands are horribly mistreated too.

All races will now before Christ.
That's what truly matters.

Because racism isn't based on anything real biologically. There's also anti-Irish and antisemitic racism, both involving White people being racist against other Whites. It's not about logic.

Caucasians are the people of the Caucasus, the area between the Black sea and the Caspian Sea. Part of southern Russia, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Armenia, northeast Turkey and northwest Iran are in the Caucasus. If you are not from there, you are not Caucasian.
Arab refers to people from countries that speak an Arabic language. None of the Caucasian countries are Arabic. "Arab" says nothing at all about skin colour and Arabs have pale or dark skin depending on where they are from. The US Government says that all Europeans, western Asians and north Africans are "white". As most of the Arab countries are in western Asia or north Africa, most Arabs are "white".
