Let me start this post by saying that no one in America ever has to apologize for success.Having said that if I heard it once I’ve heard it thousand times. People look at him he’s a rich Jew. Lets say for moment that he was a rich Jew..That expression imply’s that he shouldn’t have success.I will also say this that not all Jews are succesful or rich.We are like every other ethnic group someone some doing well and some rich.Once again the tag a “Rich…….Never is used except when referring to Jews.
I personally grew up in the 40’s 50’s and 60’s in N.Y.C..Although we didn’t live in some slum out an old movie never the less my family was poor low-income not middle class by a long shot. We live in a 1 bedroom apartment for about a good dozen years and graduated to 2 bedroom apt , when some other poor soul moved away or died in our old apartment building.
My parents biggest Dreams was to get in a city housing projects.Most of my extended family was living there already or in other low-cost apartments, We weren’t home owners or even college educated .
Let me share this tidbit of a story When I was in the Marines.I was a patient at Buford Naval Hospital.A Navy corpsmen would drive me to religious services said listen buddy I mean no offence but I was under the impression that all jews are rich and have horns.(This is because Michael Angelo sainted Moses with horns This was a mis- interpretation of The Hebrew-Cannanite written language.. Hebrew being one if first written alphabets doing so originally they there were no symbols for vowels.Having said that the word Karin meant light but Karen meant horns) I told him that I had mine surgical removed before joining the Marines & sold it for $10,000. I also told him that my father had two giant horns and pawned them for $20,000 and they keep growing back and he keeps removing them and selling them that’s why were rich..After I said that he knew I was putting him on.
*That misinterpretation is now an accepted by Christian theologians as a mis pronouncing of a vowel and that Moses had a beam of light shinning from his head & did not have horns.
