Perspectives on Race

A Discussion about Events Concerning Race

Jew Jokes

with 6 comments

The other day I overheard these two white males making  Jewish jokes. The jokes were very cruel, but they didn’t have any problem saying the. The one joke that I happened to hear was, ” How many Jews can you fit into a VW Beetle Answer: 54, 2 in the front, 2 in the back, and 50 in the ash tray. The fact that these boys found these jokes funny is extremely disturbing to me. The Holocaust was a horrible event that happened in history and over 2 million Jewish people were killed during this time. I find it horrible that people would say stuff like this, but it reminds me of the world that we live in . I don’t know if these boys were racists, but it shows that they have don’t have any regard for people’s feelings. I’m pretty sure that these boys were pretty smart to get into UF, but the things that they were saying were ignorant and insensitive. Many people in the public eye say ignorant things such as this, and then they turn around and try to take it back, but the damage has already be done.

  1. I think that when people are making these types of racial jokes they think they are doing just that, making jokes. They aren’t thinking of the fact that they could be hurting someone’s feelings or that they are being completely inappropriate when making these jokes.

  2. You should definitely meet my roommate! he’s Jewish and he said dumb stuff like that all the time and thinks it’s rather funny. He also crack jokes on other races and claim that he’s not racist since he crack jokes on his own race too. There were many occasions where he would make jokes about black people and I wanted to smacked him in the face! that’s how ridiculous he sound and he thinks it’s funny.

  3. People will always get a laugh on other peoples expense. This will never change. People laugh when others get hurt, cry, etc. That’s why so many people like reality t.v. as well.

  4. You hear jokes like this about all races all the time. It really is disgusting and honestly, I don’t blame people for laughing because most of the time, they are clever. What I want to know, is who the hell made these up? Because whoever they are, they really do have a sick sense of humor and they can’t say “it’s just a joke”. No one comes up with that in their head and voices it aloud as just a joke.

  6. Wow that is such a horrible way to joke around. It is sad that people find racial jokes funny expecially a joke where millions of jews died because of the Holocaust. So many people in society have no regards to other people’s feelings and don’t care who they hurt in the process for them to get a “good laugh.” I don’t understand how students that go to UF can be so stupid to make such a joke, ignorance happens at every level.
