I imagine there will be an argument about this but the Rif Mountains  
in Morocco have light skinned, red-haired Berbers, and the Arabs tend  
to consider themselves "better".  I don't know if that has changed  
with the recent revitalization movements of Berber languages and  
ethnic groups.  Any Moroccan opinions?  Christina
