The use of word 'Moro' is in fact racist and is used by spanish racists when they refer to Moroccan people. Where do Moro's come from - if you really think about it?

Historically, Morocco and Spain have a bittersweet relationship due to the very close proximity of the two countries, where they have each conquered some parts of each other'countries. Presently, Spain still colonize two Northern Moroccan cities - Ceuta and Mellila. Many Spanish people were born there and have lived there without problems in regards to difference of culture and religion. In contrast to this, there are around 5 million Moroccan people presently living in Spain and who are the largest Muslim group living in Spain. Acquiring jobs are made difficult due to racism especially in gaining Spanish citizenship. To even have a Mosque as a place of worship involves a lot of bureaucracy from the local governments as well as the many racist protests held by the Spanish people as well as an ever increasing presence of Nazi Spanish movements.

In 2006 the Andalusian government had introduced a recent Article into the law to allow any Moroccan person to acquire Spanish citizenship with ease, as they are found to be descendents of 'Moriscos' (Moroccans whose ancesters are of Moroccan and Spainish mixed descent during the time of Islamic rule in Spain). The Spanish and Moroccan Academics and historians have called for equality for the Moroccan people since 1992. Currently Morrocan people have to live and work 10 years in Spain for them to gain Spanish citizenship, and only 5 years if a Moroccan is married to a Spanish person.

The Spanish tried energetically to remove historical facts as to the origin of the Muslims who ruled in Spain for eight centuries and have used the word Moro to hide the fact that it was the Moroccans who conquered Spain. The word 'Moro' has been extensively used within Tourist books to describe the historical Islamic past of Spain without realising that the word is racist. If you think about it, if a 'Moro' is supposedly a person of muslim/arab descent then how come the term 'Moorish' and 'Moro' are not used at all in the Middle East to describe anything Arabic or a Arab person? moro do do do do do do do ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo Moros are Muslims. Moros are not indigenous people. The tribes that they were converted from into the religion of Islam are the indigenous people. As an example the Tausugs are indigenous people. They were in the Sulu archipelago before the Muslims arrived. To this date there are Muslim, and Non-Muslim tausugs. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.205.217.0 (talk) 22:51, 24 March 2016 (UTC)
