The white superiority lies within the Yemenis' eyes, it doesn't come from white people themselves. I see howThomas Friedmanis way welcome in Yemen because he is a white, well-established journo, and by default well-quailfied person. While genius local journalists are legally threatened, kept in jails or even "accidentally" killed by some unknown armed men, and only very few who realize that. It's not that Yemenis must be superior but at least let's aim for equal evaluation; for the white and the local. That's all.
