    I know one Iranian American and one Pakistani American over a period of time and they were pretty awesome people. Mostly just concerned with their family and feeding their kids like the rest of us. They were chill AF on the bigger scale tbh. Mostly I would say happy AF to be in America and comfortable with having freedoms. All this fear BS is conjured by manipulative loonies imo
