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.
