Ethiopian Jews experience Israeli racism at a very early age

NAZARETH, -- An Israeli kindergarten in Beir al-Saba' (Beersheba) in southern occupied Palestine was reported in the Israeli media to segregate Jewish children of Ethiopian descent from the rest of Jewish children.
Israeli channel 2 television reported that the kindergarten uses two separate rooms for the two groups of children and that the room used for the children of Ethiopian descent is much smaller than the room used for the other group.
Ethiopian Jews suffer discrimination in Israeli society basically because of the colour of their skin.
Sometime ago they discovered that the blood they donate is disposed of and not used fearing that it is infected with aids.
Palestinians aside, Ethiopian Jews, or Falashas fare worst on the Israeli scale of discrimination, other Jewish groups such Mizrahis and Sephardis do suffer from discrimination too.
