The case of Joseph and his brothers and racism

Can you imagine how ethnocentric the Egyptians were? They considered the Hebrews detestable to the point where they would not even eat with them. This is a prime example of discrimination at work.

The Egyptians had to swallow their pride and disdain for Hebrews by allowing this Hebrew slave to become the second most powerful person in the entire country.

It is amazing that instead of blaming his brothers, ridiculing them, or pointing an accusatory finger against them and demanding justice, Joseph wept!
