Seriously, I am black, and have lived in Israel on and off for years. I graduated from the Technion, and did notice most of the countries elite is Ashkenazi; however to blame this on racism is overly simplistic. The truth is that different ethnic groups have adapted different cultural and occupational paterns, and this has led to differing outcomes. In my liberal community in Haifa people are judged by thier charecture, and not their ethnic origins. I find that I face less racism here than in the USA on a day to day basis. I think the problem is that many of us expect perfection and are dissapointed- even self hating- when we fall short. If we only expected behaviour like that of any other nation, we would be pleasantly surprised every day at the humanistic, positive side of Israel.
