Being a good looking blonde-haired, blue-eyed, male. and considering the fact i grew up inside Detroit, as well as being adopted into a loving
yet JEWISH family, shortly after my birth, i feel extremely qualified to have an opinion about all forms of racism. ..
I've been of the opinion that when i refer to other "people" i call them "humans" but when i refer to Jewish people [non bankers] i call

All i understand is that the name calling, and pointing the fingers of All humans will never stop... we can joke about it and learn to accept all
of us and the other types of humans but it will always be there.. My lovely wife keeps yelling at the TV about how UGLY this person is or how FAT
that actor became.. or how dumb Americans really are, to think any other human is any different then ourselves...
BUT THEN SHE IS A GIRL LOL......
