And what can someone drink so they aren’t so sensitive over this stuff. It’s just a silly comment.

Here from ynet:

Bus driver to Ethiopian: Drink milk and you'll be white Racist remark costs Jerusalem driver his job.
Egged bus company spokesman: We denounce such disgraceful behavior, which puts all of our professional drivers to shame

A bus driver of Arab descent was fired this week after making a racist remark at an Ethiopian security guard at the entrance to the Hebrew University's Mount Scopus campus. "Perhaps you should drink milk and be white like me," the driver told the guard, who later filed a complaint with the Egged bus company. http://www.ynetnews.com/Ext/Comp/ArticleLayout/CdaArticlePrintPreview/1,2506,L-3673580,00.html

Ah, no, this isn't arab racism. This isn't racism at all.

Don't let your hatred for arabs over-ride your anti-political correct bias.

And if you drink enough milk, you may also reduce your pigmentation.

Chocolate milk would’ve worked faster!

I’d like to see a photo of the Arab. I seriously doubt he’s “white”.

Not that that matters, of course. And not that I think he should get fired for making a silly-ass comment.

But still. I bet he’s not white.

While I’m scrambling for a reply—with some people you have to walk on eggshells . Maybe he was be deviled. But all yolks aside—maybe the driver just needs to get laid.

After he was stabbed about 20 years ago, his profile is less porcine.

The meaning of “white” in the Middle East is not the same as the meaning of white in the West.

In South America, I met people who called themselves & were referred to as blonds because they had brown hair rather than black.
