    It's ok, us Asians got represented by Nute Gunray and co (more of Japanese stereotype).

    It was not the most flattering thing.

    Imagine my shock when Force Awakens had not one but TWO Asians!

    I worked with this jewish guy, George at TRU. He was a huge jew (meaning like big into the religion and all that) but he hated other jews. It was the weirdest thing.
    My most memorable moment was him huffing and puffing and coming into the security booth (which was misnamed, that's what they called that closed in section with the door and window where you would pick up video games and electronics after you bought them with a ticket), and mumbling to himself.
    "George, what's wrong?"
    "I just had to put up with this jewish couple trying to buy their kid a bike!"
    "Oh, what happened"
    "The cheap fucks were trying to get every nickle and dime they could off of the price of the bike. They wanted to buy the floor model (which back then were actually $10 more, since they were pre-built) and wanted me to knock off $30!"
    "oh, so what did you do"
    "I just gave them an attitude and told them to take it or leave it and then told Mike to help them out. I can't stand these cheap jewish fucks!"
    "Uh George.....aren't you jewish?"
    "Yeah, and I'm cheap too but that doesn't mean I want to put up with some other jews cheapness!"

    My friend Brent and I were rolling around laughing (not literally). We still talk about this encounter even now.

    I know, I mentioned it. I actually felt bad for asians. Honestly, it probably would have been OK to maybe overlook if they didn't specifically have the Chinese accents. It was just... really, really blatant. I would love to see how Lucas, or whoever, specified that that is how it should be done.

So whenever they come up I feel embarrassment.

    OK, OK, bring it down a notch. Everybody's cheap. You see weird arguing from every race.

    Jews are an ethnic group. There are Ashkenazi and Sephardic subgroups. They tend to have certain physical features, for example. Sephards tend to have darker skin, while Ashkenazi have the ol' big noses and (my favorite thing) the women tend to have big boobs.

    Some of them follow Judaism. Some don't. Some kind of follow it by celebrating <whatever> but don't give a shit about god. Etc. Sometimes non-ethnic Jews convert to Judaism. Some people call anyone following Judaism a "Jew," but it's just an overloaded term that means 2 different things depending on context.

    That's why I say "ethnic Jew" vs. "religious Jew."

    Basically he latches onto a shitty stereotype used against his own people. Which is indeed funny.

    Jews are also allowed to make Holocaust jokes. Everyone else... not so much.

    Shit, when did that memo go out?


    In real life, I tend to just hate everyone. This keeps it simple and I wouldn't want to exclude anyone.

    As Onslaught said, it was a lot closer to a Japanese accent than a Chinese one, but you'd have to either be Asian or spend a lot of time in Asia to make the distinction.

    See, I can follow your line of logic on that just fine. As an ethnic mutt who has no culture tied to my ancestry, I have to bend my mind into a pretzel to process it, but I get what you're saying.

    What I can't understand is Antisemitism: Do anti-semites have a problem with the ethic part, or the religious part? Are there some of both? If so, do they argue with each other over which part is the "right" one to have a problem with? Do they then demonize each other for being "wrong" about which part to hate?

    And then those questions are made all the more confusing to me because here in Oklahoma, a lot of white people have some small amount of Native American blood. I've known two people who were of (mostly) Jewish ancestry, and they looked just like all the other white mutts with some Native American blood around here. So if there are anti-semites who are jerks about the race thing, but not the religion stuff, what's their justification for singling out jews in a society where there's no clear lines of race to begin with?

    I have a feeling if I lived in Europe I would have better context for the issue maybe? Having been raised by hippies here in the US, it just doesn't make any sense.

    There's a lot more than two Asians in TFA... You racist!

    I think in the US people in general don't realize there is an ethnic and religious part of being a jew. The ones who don't like them just hear the word and know, oh, I don't like them.
    It's like how a lot of American's don't like Mexicans (stealing all of our jobs yo!) but they couldn't tell a Mexican from a Honduran.
    One interesting thing though is that I never understood is that most of the hispanics I've worked with didn't like Puerto Ricans. I don't know what the difference is (they all look the same amirite?!) but they would talk shit all the time. One of my current good friends is this Puerto Rican girl and she loathes Cubans for some reason.
