part of this was/is cultural to jew people


the "is" in your statement pretty much proved you're a bigot. even if the rest of the post might be historically accurate, that one word revealed your racist intentions pretty clearly. your description pretty much described ALL immigrants who move here. except jews havent been immigrants for the better part of a century.

and as for your claim to be helping minorities by pointing this out, it looks like we've been doing fairly well without your help thanks.

I understand you are a russian jew, I am learning more about your people everyday, I understand where your anger comes from but I am learning how to deal with that kind of behaviour without responding in a rude or uncivil way.

Part of the cultural stereotypes about jews have to do with their culture. There is nothing racist about that, that is true of almost all cultural stereotypes.

Of course immigrants have traditionally had a harder time getting jobs in elite areas of the country. The exception i see is Silicon Valley where lots of foreigners seem to get ahead quickly.

People who don't hire blacks, mexicans or Natives are usually just racist and it has little to do with their behaviour. In fact generally for a black or a Hispanic to even make it to an interview at that level means they are usually pretty clean cut and well behaved. Are there blacks who act loud and crass, o yes, plenty, but those ones probably never even bother to go to law school or into finance. The best example I can think of people will know, is think of the black people on tv shows like the apprentice, not the celebrity apprentice, just regular apprentice. You rarely see one of those kind of blacks you are talking about on that show if not ever. Whereas the negative stereotypical jew, who dresses bad or speaks loud, rude, crass and argumentative appears almost ever season without end.

Well lets just agree to disagree, we are not going to see eye to eye and any further argument would just derail the thread.
