Black Hat, Black Heart

Incoming chief rabbi: Who cares which blacks win a basketball game?

Trying to sway haredi men from watching basketball games at convenience stores, Rabbi David Lau asks, “Who cares if a bunch of paid ‘Cushim’ in Tel Aviv beat a bunch of paid ‘Cushim’ in Greece?” using the colloquial term for black people.

You sir have proven once again, the biggest black problem we have in Israel is people with black hats and suits, which only reflect your black hearts.

I can’t even imagine your father even thinking such a thing, much less saying it.

For our non Israeli readers using the word Cushim is the same as using the “N” word.
