Re: A White guy visiting the ghetto.

se11, you are right: it would have been hard for Israel to successfully defend itself without U.S. support. During the 1973 War (called the Yom Kippur War because Egypt, Jordan, and Syria launched a surprise attack against Israel on Yom Kippur, the most holy day of the Jewish year when everyone is f...

Re: A White guy visiting the ghetto.

Mick, please don't refer to Jews as Hebes. Thanks. I thought it was you who wrote "I hope you're kidding". Sorry. Anyway, I'll write the history lessons - to whoever chooses to read this tread - as long as people write innacurate things: like the U.S. supporting Israel since 1945. As far as Israel b...

Re: A White guy visiting the ghetto.

Mick, I hope *you're* kidding, but Israel didn't even exist until 1948, so the U.S. couldn't have supported "Israel" in 1945. The U.N. voted to partition Palestine into a Jewish state (Israel) and an Arab state in 1947. The Jews accepted the partition, the Arabs did not, and the surrounding Arab cou...

Re: A White guy visiting the ghetto.

Well, Jews are a small minority in the United States - only 2% of the population. So how much influence over the politics can we have? It's true that Jews tend to be concentrated in certain states like New York, California, New Jersey, etc. I suppose there they could have more influence on the local...

Re: Hollywood discriminates against dark Latinos

Well, probably because Latinos themselves discriminate against dark Latinos. All my Brazilian friends are white. Some are even blonde. They are all M.A. and Ph.D. level students - the wealthiest and most educated sector of Brazilian society. To them, Brazilian equals white. On Brazilian TV you see t...

Re: A White guy visiting the ghetto.

I'm sure some black people have issues with Jews. It seems lots of people have issues with us. It's called anti-Semitism and it's as old as the history of time and as recent as Nazi Germany. However, whatever you want to say about Jews: come to a Jewish neighborhood - *any* Jewish neighborhood - and...

Re: A White guy visiting the ghetto.

Sorry Mick. I read a lot. Basically all the time. So I write the way I read - I use all kinds of words, both simple and more complex words. Believe me, it's instinctive to me to use all the words in my vocabulary when I write. It doesn't make me less down to earth as a person. Actually, I think most...

Re: A White guy visiting the ghetto.

I agree there's nothing wrong with having a drink occasionally. The only danger is that alcohol is extremely addictive for some people. There is always the danger that one may become addicted. And we know what happens when people get addicted to any drug, be it alcohol, cocaine, heroin, etc. Complet...

Re: A White guy visiting the ghetto.

Just curious is all.

I enjoy a party as much as the next person.
Jews are very social people in general.
However, for me, a party means good company, good music, good conversation, maybe good food. But drinking has nothing to do with it.

Re: A White guy visiting the ghetto.

Mick, you are truly crazy. You lived 7 people to a 2 bedroom apartment. My father (and mother by the way also) lived 4 people to a 1 bedroom apartment. It's 3.5 people to a bedroom versus 4 people to a bedroom. What exactly is the difference? By the way, my mother grew up in a working class neighbor...

Re: A White guy visiting the ghetto.

Mick, I don't talk shit or anything else about your neighborhood. I never go to your neighborhood. I don't go to Irish neighborhoods, mostly because honestly I don't know where there are any in New York. As for it being "great" that my father grew up poor: no, it is not great. I wish he had not. I w...

Re: A White guy visiting the ghetto.

Mick, why are you writing four messages, basically responding to only *yourself* over and over again? You are the one who brought up Irish people, not me. I don't think much about Irish people one way or the other, mostly because I don't meet many these days. Growing up in the suburbs many of my cla...

Re: A White guy visiting the ghetto.

Look Mick, it's a shame your brother had to go to prison. I wouldn't wish that on anyone and I'm sure he didn't deserve it. However, I must take issue with your talk of the "leverage the government gives Jews." What leverage is this exactly? Irish people have been in the U.S. for longer than Jews, w...

Re: A White guy visiting the ghetto.

Mick, I'm sorry your brother went to prison for 2 years but maybe if he spent less time in bars to begin with he wouldn't have ended up in some drunken bar fight? Just a thought.

Re: A White guy visiting the ghetto.

Wow, I never realized that in this day and age there is so much distaste for Jews. In Bed Stuy working in a black environment I never encountered negativity directed toward my Jewishness. If anything some of my (all black) clients and coworkers seemed respectful of my religion and culture. As for th...

Re: A White guy visiting the ghetto.

I don't see how my being Jewish made it any different. It's doubtful that anyone could tell I was Jewish upon meeting me for the first time or just seeing me anyway. I suppose the fact that I am a brunette and not a blonde might have made me "stick out" in the neighborhood a tiny bit less. Maybe som...

Re: A White guy visiting the ghetto.

I would like to respond to the guy's original question. I live in New York, but maybe the situation is somewhat similar. I am a "white" (Jewish) woman and I used to work in Bedford Stuyvesant, supposedly a "dangerous" neighborhood in Brooklyn. I was the only white person that I ever saw for the year...
