Why don't you tell me if you are one?
This is interesting... if I'm reading this correctly, because a member disagrees with your opinion you now demand to know if he is Jewish?
If I'm wrong my apologies, if I'm right you're quite out of order.
Making your arguments heard without resorting to tactics like that would be very beneficial.
I still don't understand why they were fast to criticize Mel Gibson but I've yet to hear any comments about Abbie Richards.
Who? The man's name is Michael Anthony Richards.

Richards launched a furious rant at two black hecklers during a standup show in Los Angeles last weekend.
At the request of pal Jerry Seinfeld, Richards later appeared via satellite on the David Letterman Show to apologise.
But he has now been accused of making anti-Jewish comments during a stand-up routine as well.

LOS ANGELES (AP) - First he went on national television to apologize for his racial tirade against two black hecklers. Now Michael Richards is taking his contriteness to the next level: he's hired a public relations expert with deep contacts in the black community.
New York publicist Howard Rubenstein took on Richards as a client Wednesday after being contacted by the actor-comedian. He then arranged for Richards to call the Revs. Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton.
"I've known those gentlemen for many years," Rubenstein told The Associated Press.
"Michael apologized profusely. He wants to heal the tremendous wound that he's inflicted on the American public, and on the African-American community," he said.

Is he down on "his people' as well?
On November 22, 2006, reports surfaced that Richards had made Anti-Semitic comments during a stand-up routine earlier in 2006. Richards' publicist, Howard Rubenstein, confirmed the report, and added that the remarks were made as part of the act, and that Richards himself is Jewish. The Jewish Journal of Greater Los Angeles, citing anonymous sources familiar with Richards as well as a television director who has worked with Richards for several years, has noted that Richards is not Jewish and was raised a Catholic.
