Recently, Darius Danesh exposed what it was like growing up. He was tormented by racist kids during his childhood in Edinburgh during the ’90s, as they cruelly nicknamed him Saddam Hussein.
“It was during the Gulf War era and they called me Saddam” the half Iranian singer said. “I thought if only you knew what this madman has done to my family. The Iraq-Iran war was one in which I lost a lot of relatives so it’s painful.”
“Being a racist is not a kind thing to do. It can hurt and damage people, especially the young” he pleads.
