route street path early evening. Several elderly people, unknown to me, were sitting on the street bench resting and when I and my black hair dog were passing these people one of them gazed at my dog and said pointedly “Look at, an Ethiopian” and laughed loudly. I stayed silent, shocked. Next evening, same people were sitting there again and this time I gazed ‘preventively’ into the eyes of elder citizen when passing with dog and the older citizen stayed unvoiced this time. However, yesterday evening the same citizen gazed again at my dog while we were passing and said pointedly “It is an Ethiopy, isn’t it?” and laughed again histrionically. I told him it is so said seeing Jewish elder having a racist association when seeing black animal. He shot back at me by saying “I am proud to be racist”. Thus, I and my black dog will be forced to change our regular walking path to get away from the proud racist insults because this unknown racist may continue insulting undisturbed, and who will punish him and not laugh at me and my ‘sensitivity’. I ask myself is being so defensive (cowardly?) best thing ordinary citizen can do when facing racist at work? I think it is when seeing and hearing so many prominent Israeli rabbis and politicians, holders of a real power, being openly racist.
