In fact, in many places, racism is considered as vile as Nazism, and even a single racist slur can wreck the careers of seemingly impervious politicians, celebrities and athletes.Implementing policies that establish curfews for Syrians, prevent gatherings of more than three at any given place, and prohibit them from riding motorcycles, is reminiscent of the dark times in apartheid South Africa, or the deep South of the United States in the 19th century.This isn't how we want to be portrayed before the rest of the world, more so because this mindset does not reflect the majority of Lebanese.This is especially true as the Lebanese in the past have sought safety in Syria on more than one occasion.
