The other day I posted a video (check above) under the post titled “Racism in Lebanon” showing a couple trying to get their maid into Sporting Club only to be rejected. The PR manager has responded to that post with the following message:

Confusing racism with social discrimination is a CRIME.

Children posing as human right activists yelling wolf are many.

The Sporting Club swimming Center has a standing policy of not allowing in ANY maids, nanny’s, escorts, body guards, personal assitants,business men, politicians, embassadors, familes are welcome ALONE.

Moms who delegate the caring of their children to maids are not welcome.

Color of skin is God given and not for me or anyone to question.

Religion is each person’s refuge.

You and I practice daily discrimantion in our lives. for example, an office boy, a maid a porter a salesperson, etc,.. would not call by your first name, but you in turn would not address him/her as mam/sir, Khawaja, afandi, istez, beik, madam, sit so on….

when the last time anyone went to a wedding and took the maid along and sat her at the table next to him/her.

When is the last time a chauffeur was invited to have dinner or a drink in the company of his employers?

Why is it that the smallest (closet sized room) in the house is the maid’s room?

Show me Just one single person that does not practice social prejudice and I will be the first to enforce communist comaradery, Where we all wear grey (men and women). We are asexual and are all children of the state living with equal rights and performing equal duties.

McCarthy’ism eras of screaming communist at anyone you want to send to the electric chair, is over and done with.
Medieval day witch hunts are bed time stories for first grade children.

Kids playing with issues such racism can only make people aware that they may want to consider being racists instead of refusing racism altogether.

In any event, The Sporting Club is target to harrassment and name calling by indiviuals we have turned away at the door.

INDYact, mentioned 1 name out the 20 they claim to have interviewd ( any guessing why 😉 )?

Maybe they should hit on the military run and operated public clubs & beaches or are they too much of cowards to put in question the social discrimination the government practices.

INDYact, should call the ministry of tourism and ask why Indian business people were refused tourist visas to Lebanon this summer.

I would love to answer any questions anyone might have.

Racial and religious discrimination are repulsive to me.
