I have never experienced anti-Semitism and I have never been offended. I rarely use the term “anti-Semitism.” I’m not into classifying criticism or even hate as a “slur.”
I think it is natural, healthy and good to prefer your own kind and to distrust those who are different.
I had a Jewish girlfriend who complained about how often she experienced anti-Semitism. I asked her for an example. She said she had an employer who said to her, “You Jews are good at business.” She thought that was a horrible thing to say. I thought it was a nice thing to say.
From Fox Sports: San Diego Chargers radio color commentator Hank Bauer was suspended from broadcasting the team’s final preseason game on Thursday after telling an anti-Semitic joke at the end of Sunday’s broadcast.
In the closing seconds of Sunday’s Chargers-49ers preseason game, Bauer, broadcasting on 105.3 KIOZ, cracked a Jewish joke about how copper was invented.
“But then again you know how copper wire was invented? Somebody dropped a penny between Josh and his family member,” said Bauer. “I say that respectfully and endearingly, my partner.”
