On a golf course, Jack Benny once asked Sammy Davis, Jr., what his handicap was. "Handicap?" he asked. "Talk about handicap! I'm a one-eyed Negro Jew."
What do you think? Do you think that being a Jew is a "handicap"? Does it combine with other traits you have to make it more handicap-like?
As a Southerner, I feel that my stereotypes have improved by affiliating Jewishly. Southerners are assumed to be inbred, stupid, lazy, and incompetent. Now people assume I can do my job well enough that I'm capable of running the world! They're also less confused by the fact that a Southerner is nerdy and bookish. So I guess I feel differently than Mr. Davis.
Along those lines, I once saw a hilarious quote on Facebook by a stranger, "So-and-so was disappointed to learn that, after his Jewish conversion, he still does not control the banks."
