    Hey everyone!
    [​IMG]

    Born in Tunis, Sousse, Kef, Tataouine, Sfax, Gafsa, Nabeul, Gabes, or Jendouba......, After all, we are all Tunisians, just around 10 million persons living in an area that's barely seen in the globe map. However, though Tunisia is a very small country, it is inflicted by many social problems and phenomena which are far-flung from far North to far South and people aren't making any effort to embetter and improve their ways of thinking which instead of moving forward, they are just stagnating in silliness and triviality.
    One of the main, serious and alarming social problems in Tunisia is REGIONALISM.

    Being a Regionalist for me is one of the main proofs and symptoms of the silliness and the empty-mindedness of the Tunisian people.

    Yes, many Tunisians are unfortunately regionalists: the one from Tunis teases and treats with contempts those from the South or from the Middle and in rare case the vice versa. They laugh and make fun of them especially for their dialects and accents.

    The regionalists under-estimate others, derogate them and judge them on the basis of their accents which is for them an ugly accent and related mainly to farmers while they are very proud of theirs which they say is inherited from the noble Turkish people they once lived in Tunis.

    Can you imagine that!!!!

    Accents and dialects are some of many causes of Regionalism in this country.

    There is another crucial and all important cause for Regionalism in Tunisia which is FOOTBALL.

    This silly game which has made people sick, obsessed and insane. I don't see any advantage in it and why all this love for it. For me, football is the main factor behind the hatered between the Sa7el and Tunis, between Sfax, Sousse and Tunis and many other regions in the country.

    Even in the same region, like GAbes which is actually my region, Manzel and Jara have never been friends because of football and that's really sad and needs contemplation.

    Personally and frankly speaking, I'm not a regionalist El Hmdolellah and I won't be for sure.

    And if I come to judge a person, of course it won't be on the basis of his accent or origin. On the contrary,
    I owe respect and consideration to everyone who is good and decent; to everyone who is struggling to make success in life and trying hard to develop the country and the community.

    I owe them all the respect regardless their accents, dialects, origins and the teams they support.

    Thanks in advance for taking some time off to write what you think about Regionalism and please feel free to express yourselves

    If you are a regionalist ==> [​IMG]
    If you are a non-regionalist ==> [​IMG]

    thx for mentioning this sensitive topic and i said sensitive because many dont like to talk about regionalism even if they know it affects our society.
    you are totaly right about this

    (i know that you dont mean all the tunisian people) and during my university experience,i never had this experience im from Kasserine and i studies in the sa7el but all my friends where from there and we never faced such problems,however,to be honest,i had some serious problems with 2 or 3 regionalist teachers
    anyway, what i want to say is that regionalism exists but not at that dangerous level but if we reamain passive,anything and not only football will help to increase its effects



    (i totaly disagree with you about ur saying:
    maybe one day we will discuss this :)

    I spent a lot of time reading your topic
    I like it
    it's very interresting
    of course there is regionalism in our country and not only in our country;;;it's something all over the world
    I think that this problem is created by the people you're talking about! because instead of working and creating and making good things in their places they are just saying : way You have and We don't have .
    It's a problem of thinking!
    We have been used to get everything ready!! This is the problem and it's very hard to change it now! too late!!
    the world is being ruined and we stiil in our place thinking of the other if he is sfaxien or sa7li or jerbi
    shame on them

    What's really shocking likewise in this phenomenon is that even media do take an immense part in propagating this silly belief among the public. As a matter of fact, in most Tunisian Series, the poor and the farmers are usually portrayed with the dialect of the Middle and the South while the Bourgeoisie and the rich with the dialect of Tunis, the capital. For instance, Tunisians from the North-west ( Kef , Jendouba ...) are presented through media as naive persons, imbeciles and fools while those from Tunis, in most cases as rich and presenting the Bourgeois.

    They even try to make use of the dialect in comedy for the main purpose of creating scenes of laughter, all along with the rags these poor wear and the unorganized look they appear with.

    The questions that pose themselves here would be:
    Are media aware of this fact? Are they conscious that they are helping widespreading regionalism in the country?

    Who have permitted them to make fun and fools of people from some different regions in the country?

    At first ,I thought that you're only a person who wants to show off saying always the opposite and speaking on behalf of the others but the more I read your writings the more I get certain about your creative and professional side in seeing and dealing with matters and things that are hardly to be considered by non linguists and non scholars in English that’s why I thank you first for selecting this topic and I encourage you to pursue in it being more conscious on the fact that I will do as much as I can in making your topic as successful as you want it

    And in what concerns my point of view on the issue I think regionalism and generally discriminations whether basing on race, sex, social class, ethnicity or other elements is still hidden but it exists in our Tunisian society .

    In fact it is true that it is there in stadiums but do we frequently hear such things in our daily life?after all we must all the time in all contexts and whatever the circumstances are refuge to our religion and know that there is our God the greatest always listening and seeing ..

    Sorry for lengthening things and using many hendiadys

    Thanks for tackling this sensitive topic. For me, Regionalism exists in our country unfortunately and none can deny this. And as you have already mentioned, people from the north , not all of them of course, mock the accent of the middle and the south and this is a sad reality.

    You also mentioned media which i totally agree in it's role in widespreading regionalism in Tunisia.

    People shouldn't be empty-minded as to judge people on the basis of their accent or mock them.

    c'est pas le bon choix de forum monsieur... vous etes nouveau et vous voulez avoir plus d'étoile ... vous êtes totalement faux.. tu peut simplement appuie sur la touche[​IMG]

    et à propos ce sujet j'ai quelQue chose à ajouter c'est même le régionalisme chez les facultés existe par exemple tu trouve quelqu'un qui fait ses études au supcom et l'autre dans INIT tu trouvera bcp de regionalism entre eux...
