I do not wish to deflate Ms. Whited's enthusiasm for The Mummy, but
unfortunately the film is rife with gratuitous anti-Arab racism.  One can
see a description of the offensiveness of this movie on the web site of the
American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee at

While appreciation of our profession in the motion picture industry is rare,
it is regrettably overshadowed in this instance by some unnecessarily
bigoted cheap shots.  This is my opinion only.
