@ChaimMoskowitz how often do you have someone yelling at you for something that you weren't @ fault because you're catholic?
Not sure if because I was Catholic. How would they know I was Catholic?
Now I can give you hundreds of examples because I am white.
Either way what does that have to do with this thread?

Iíll just leave this and the comments on the post here.

The thing with the hamster is that running on the wheel is actually what it is trying to do.

Do people get worried or offended by comments such as the ones in the post above? Whenever I see such type of comments it barely affects me in any way. I sort of just read them and ignore it.

Not usually.  I mean, I'm aware of it. When it's situations like that I just feel more focused on the fact that the story is a chillul Hashem.

But it's not lost on me how many people quickly call out 'those Jews' -

Then again it's not rare to see Jews doing somewhat the same thing necessarily when they see ----- (fill in the blank) doing something wrong or inappropriate. 


Those Blacks, those Arabs, those "Goyim", those  Conservative, those Lubavitchers, those Israelis.
People do things like that all the time.
We just don't generally want to kill those people or post wanting their deaths on social media.


The commentary like that aren't as much my concern. I honestly believe most of those people posting wouldn't want to hurt anyone.

But that doesn't mean there aren't plenty out there that do.

It is hard for some to separate threads.

No, you must be confusing this with another forum.

here is a picture of the incident



Thatís the downside of being involved in an accident on the BQE while being visibly Jewish..

The upside is that youíre never alone.. when I totaled a car on the BQE a few years ago Iíve merely stepped out of the car to assess the damage literally 20 seconds after the impact.. and a random fellow Jew stoped and took home my wife and kids.. Were they not picked up, they wouldíve spent the next two 2 hours with me on an open highway with speeding 18 wheelers only to arrive home with a sketchy bumpy flatbed truck.. think positive!

ETA:
here are some pictures.. btw the impact resulted in the front cars muffler to punch a piece out of the plates.. talk about perfection..

American history is what? not even 300 yrs old? the first Bais Hamikdash was 410 yrs and those were the best times in Jewish history. Even the second BM was not very settling. When we look at history as a whole it looks like it was straight hard times and now were 'safe'..pick a time 200 yrs into the first BM and it looks good as far as the eye can see...we're so spoiled here..

Do you really have hundreds of examples of people yelling at you because you are white?
Can you share some of them?

For about twenty years I worked in and around two of the worst neighborhoods. I can't count the amount of times I was spat on or items thrown at me besides being called every name in the book. Back then we didn't have concealed carry so I had to do everything in my power as to not escalate a situation where I would have to shoot someone.
