"Jewish people"
#21
I think people are hesitant to use the word, “Jew” because it is often used as a pejorative in many contexts. The word “Jew” in and of itself has been used in the past as a hateful way to denote a cheater or a fraud. Certainly unfortunate and terrible.

With the rise of Anti-Semitism it is evident many modern conspiracies about secret cabals of elites are repackaged versions of the “Protocols of the Elders of Zion”. People are definitely trying to be more careful as to how they reference Semitic people with respect. Likewise, issues surrounding the state of Israel also have shaped our American understanding of Jewish people not just in the context of race or religion but within the context of the powerful, modern Jewish nation state.

C'mon... you can't say "salvation comes from the Jews", without saying... you know. :-)

Plus this thread always makes me think of this line from Office Space:

That is so dark it is funny as heck. If I offend anyone, just know that I have trouble taking life seriously, especially nowadays. the world is such a joke I can only laugh. You got men who want to 'become' women. You got the most inept people on earth running government. The Babylon Bee is becoming more fact than satire. I may have gone mad perhaps. I think much of the world is freaking mad, but we call them 'learned' 'powerful' etc.

I use jew, jews, jewish people or person interchangeably, it depends on context or the rhythm of sentence for me(as weird as that last part may sound).

I use "Jew" for one Jew and "Jews" for two or more Jews.

"For you have not yet resisted unto blood, striving against sin."  Hebrews 12:4.

Just because I let you have the last word does not mean that I concede your point.

I agree with the OP.

I share this stereotypical but funny poem, dedicated to a man with Jewish ancestors:

To a man with a big nose
 TO A MAN WITH A BIG NOS
Once there was a man stuck to a nose,
it was a nose more marvellous than weird,
it was a nearly living web of tubes,
it was a swordfish with an awful beard,
it was a sundial doomed to face the shade,
an elephant that looked up to the sky,
it was a nose of hangman and of scribe,
Ovidius Naso nostrilled all awry,

it was the bowsprit of a mighty ship,
like Egypt's pyramid it pierced the sky,
it was of noses all of the twelve tribes;

it was in noseness truly infinite,
an awful lot of nose, a nose so fierce
that on Annas's face would be a crime.


Original:

[b]A un hombre de gran nariz[/b]

Erase un hombre a una nariz pegado,
érase una nariz superlativa,
érase una alquitara medio viva,
érase un peje espada mal barbado;
era un reloj de sol mal encarado,
érase un elefante boca arriba,
érase una nariz sayón y escriba,
un Ovidio Nasón mal narigado.

Erase el espolón de una galera,
érase una pirámide de Egito,
las doce tribus de narices era;

érase un naricísimo infinito,
muchísimo nariz, nariz tan fiera,
que en la cara de Anás fuera delito.
