My husband is a trucker/courier for a small, local company-he does the same type of work that a UPS driver does-but, like I said, for a small, privately owned outfit. Anyway-today he went into a mailroom in Manhattan to make a pick up-he said he goes to this particular mailroom quite a lot and is friendly with the 2 managers-a woman of Spanish heritage and an African-American man. Hubby said recently they have had some helpers in this mailroom, all young-ish (early to mid 20s) African -American men. Hubby is Jewish and looks it-people always peg him as Jewish even without hearing his name. Anyway-he said today when he went into the mailroom, they were all talking and joking and he joined in (he always does this-he likes to talk and joke around with everyone)-he said everybody in the mailroom was laughing with the exception of one young man who was sitting in the corner, giving hubby the evil eye and not cracking a smile. As hubby was about to leave, the non-smiling young man came closer to hubby and said : "Man, I don't know why you all are so upset over what Mel Gibson said-he's just speaking the truth-everyone knows about the Jews man". Hubby said he was shocked and he just looked at the guy and said "Hey, why don't you keep your ignorant, racist comments to yourself?" and walked out. he called me and said he couldn't believe that this guy not only thinks this stuff-but, says it out loud (hubby said it was said loud enough for everyone to hear) like he is proud of it! Hubby said he can't wait to go back to that mailroom another day and see if anybody says anything about it, amkes apologies for this guy or what not. I just can't believe people think things like this towards jewish people or any race/ethnic/religious group! UGH!
