I’m an Arab named Dave Hall

Arab nameDave Hall,
Brooklyn, NY.

I get my name from my Yankee (English-American) father, whose ancestors arrived in Boston in 1630 but I get my complexion from my Arab-American mother. People do a double take when they first meet me after only hearing my voice on the phone. And new friends quickly learn that I am passionately insistent about discussing Arabs in truth, not in myth and stereotype.

    Nice to meet you, Dave Hall. I’m an Arab named John O’Neill.
