    Not all colors welcomed in Lebanon's cultural tapestry

    "Beirut, Lebanon (CNN) -- Lebanon prides itself on its image as a melting pot on the Mediterranean: an ancient bastion of civilization boasting a diverse tapestry of cultures and creeds.

    But scratch the surface, and it becomes apparent that not everyone fits into the country's cosmopolitan self-image.

    Many migrants and mixed-race Lebanese, particularly those of Asian and African origin, say they encounter racism on a regular basis."
