10 minutes into my ride and with no prior interaction between the driver and myself, it took only two words in Hebrew to get my driver start yelling at me "get the $#@* out of my car".
It did not help when I told him that I can't go out in the middle of the highway. It was like I wasn't a person for him anymore. When I asked him if it's because I'm speaking Hebrew he said yes and kept yelling at me to get out.
I am not easily intimidated, but that scared me, and I ran out of there, walking in the middle of the road.
I never thought something like this could happen in America, such awful racism.
This cannot be tolerated!
