(above is Sarah Michelle Gellar, who’s Jewish. As you can tell, no hook nose, light colored hair and beautiful green eyes. She doesn’t fit many of the Stereotypes we hear about Jews now does she?)
One thing that amuses me is the Stereotypes about Jews. We hear them even to this day. A few that make me chuckle are the following –
1 – Jews always have hooked nose
2- Jews love money
3 – Jews hate all non-jews
Of course I could on and on. But do I really need to keep talking about such ignorance?
1 – First off, there are all types of Jews. We have Middle Eastern, African, Asian and European Jews. Not all Jews have a “hook-nose”, nor do they all have dark skin, hair and eyes. This is one of the many “Aryan” myths made famous by Hitler.
2- To say all Jews love money is like saying all Irish people are drunks (I’m Irish and I’m not a drunk by the way). By the way, Jesus was Jewish. Can you please show me one verse in the Bible where he was money hungry?
3 – Like all people I am sure there are racists Jews who hate non-Jews. But the entire population of Jews does not hate non-Jewish people. One of my best friends in high school was a Jew named Nick Goldring. I can’t recall him trying to kill my niece or nephew for their blood, nor do I recall him stealing my money.
