Ras el Abed changed its name to Tarboush years back. I think it’s time Abeedo is changed as well.
Note: As mentioned by Majd, Abeedo is the family name of the owners of the company. I had no clue as I was referring to the use of “Abeedo” to point to a black person and I’ve heard it (sadly)quite often in Lebanon. Having said that, and being that it’s a family name, it can’t be compared to the naming of Rass el Abed.
why? whats wrong with abeedo?
I think that is not possible, because simply Abeedo is the family name of the owners.
Also i dont find it in any way offensive as in Ras El Abed case.
Abeedo is a family name but is also used by some to indicate a black man in Lebanon. I hear it a lot (unfortunately)
I updated the post to point out the difference so that Abeedo family doesnt seem I was disrespecting them 🙂
First time I hear we have this family.
The color of the tarboosh is black, thats why calling it ras l3abed is considered racist. Sahlab is white anyways so the naming can’t be considered much racist 😛
Najib, it has come to my attention that you tend to post articles without getting your facts straight.
One related to that doctor that got detained for carrying a weapon and now this (there are others that i can’t remember).
Remember, its quality of the things you post and not quantity.
Still i see no harm in the way he posts his blogs (not articles), big difference between the two, and that’s why there’s a comment section in the blogs where you can straighten the facts in case anything was wrong or mislead.
I beg to disagree. I don’t post news from random sources nor post for the sake of it and I did check the source regarding the doctor who got detained and it was based on an army report as well. So it wasn’t me who got the info wrong but practically everyone except the doctor’s family.
As for this post, I posted it on the basis of what I know Abeedo means (regardless if its a family name or not), but I updated the post in order to set things clear.
Abeedo still means what it does but it’s a family name too.
Everyone is prone to error and 2 or 3 or even 5 posts out of almost 2000 is not really something worthy mentioning in my opinion.
Nevertheless, I thank you for your feedback.
It has come to my attention that your comment is stupid..if u dont like the blog dont visit it.
The Most famous news agencies in the world sometimes post inaccurate news, what is great here is that people involved or more informed can set the facts right for all of us.
Najib please keep up the great quality and quantity.
