1. The media is not run by Jews. In fact, the media seems to be run by Christians and the second largest owner of Fox news is an Arab Sheik.
2. "they help each other out and everything." Seriously? That's about as stupid as "I know a black person, do you know them too?"
3. "You hardly ever hear about racism against Jews nowadays..." I'm hearing it now in your post.
In 2007, 69?ll religious hate crimes were directed at Jews according to the national center for victims of crime http://www.ncvc.org/ncvc/main.aspx?dbName=DocumentViewer&DocumentID=38715
There is also a lot of such crime around the world.
Many organizations have unofficial policies of not hiring or promoting Jews because they "are not like us." Heck, ivy league universities used to sit together and conspire to limit the number of Jews admitted across all Ivy league schools...
4. I don't know that Rick Sanchez' firing really had that much to do with the stupid comment. I mean have you seen him on tv? This is the guy who had himself tasered on tv for ratings. AND his mentor and protector, the guy who hired him (a Jew) was fired a week earlier...a sign that his protection was ready to run out.
5. By the way, Jews are both a religion and a race.
We share common history, culture and even genetics.
Sharon Begley. "The DNA of Abraham's Children." Newsweek Web Exclusive (June 3, 2010). Excerpts:"The latest DNA volume weighs in on the controversial, centuries-old (and now revived in a 2008 book) claim that European Jews are all the descendants of Khazars, a Turkic group of the north Caucasus who converted to Judaism in the late eighth and early ninth century. The DNA has spoken: no. ... To sort it out, researchers collected DNA from Iranian, Iraqi, Syrian, and Ashkenazi Jews around New York City; Turkish Sephardic Jews in Seattle; Greek Sephardic Jews in Thessaloniki and Athens; and Italian Jews in Rome as part of the Jewish HapMap Project. (All four grandparents of each participant had to have come from the same community.) ... Jewish populations, that is, have retained their genetic coherence just as they have retained their cultural and religious traditions, despite migrations from the Middle East into Europe, North Africa, and beyond over the centuries, says geneticist Harry Ostrer of NYU Langone Medical Center, who led the study. Each Diaspora group has distinctive genetic features 'representative of each group's genetic history,' he says, but each also 'shares a set of common genetic threads' dating back to their common origin in the Middle East. 'Each of the Jewish populations formed its own distinctive cluster, indicating the shared ancestry and relative genetic isolation of the members of each of those groups.' The various Jewish groups were more related to each other than to non-Jews, as well. Within every Jewish group, individuals shared as much of their genome as two fourth or fifth cousins.
