    People state that Arab-Israelis can vote and can attend universities and become doctors. In the US, the doctor connected to the idea of transfusions, Dr.Drew, died because a hospital wouldn't take him some decades ago. He studied to be a doctor. Black people in many places could vote. It doesn't mean ther isn't discrimination. Michael Oren complained of prejudice in a Catholic neighborhood in the 60s, and he could vote and be a doctor or whatever and unlike Arab-Israelis Jews in America since some decades have been in government. Arab Israelis can't build anywhere much blacks in the US decades ago and then the book a "Raisin in the Sun" changed that. Let's face it, Israel is like the US under segregation and South Africa's apartheid was extreme segregation. Israel falls in between both examples, as I have demonstrated.
