When "jew" become an insult or derogatory insinuation? Topic: Insult essay about myself

Question: I hear people go "Man, I got jewed on my essay by that b*tch prof!" or quite simply, "hahah you jew". Where and when did this come about? It's such common verbatim now but I just never knew why that is.

The word 'Jew' has always been used in a nasty way, through the centuries. In fact, in the past, it even appeared in the dictionary and was defined in a horrible way. I'm Jewish, and if anybody made those comments to me, I'd wipe the floor with them verbally. Those remarks are deeply offensive.

Because we Jews are seen somehow as less than others. To hear the phrase "I got Jewed on a test" is from the stereotype that Jews screw peope out of money. "Jew them down" means to bargain. It is meant as a derogatory term for sure but as a Jew I have heard that so often that I don't take offence. It just shows the ignorance of ther person saying it I think.

Thats ridiculous. First of all, you can read any book you darn well please. Second of all, I feel that I myself am somewhat headstrong, and my senior year in high school I did a research paper on Hitler, which required me to read Mein Kampf. I did not feel that the book was empowering in the same sense that your teacher apparently does. If you are going to do a report on someone, you might as well learn all there is to know about that person. Who better to tell you, then the person them self? So unless you have a swastika tattooed on your forehead, and spew Nazi hate, I dont see anything wrong with you checking it out at the local public library and using it for research. Hitler thought in his mind that what he was doing was for the greater good of Germany. He thought that by getting rid of Jew, it would be beneficial to Germany. His problem was that he was trying to find someONE to blame. The very sad thing about Hitler is that in his heart of hearts, he believed in the jargon he was saying. I feel that Hitler was strong in his verbal approaches, but I think he was a wimp, so to speak. True, he was able to convince a whole Nation to believe what he had to say, but they were looking for answers themselves. Here comes this guy, that seems so sure of himself, and yeah, they believed him. You have to think though, things were different then. Racism wasn't a BAD thing to them at the time. Look how America was, with segregation. It wasnt unheard of to try to blame all of ones problems on a whole other group of people. Mostly chosen by race. Hitler was able to tap into these poor peoples fears, and allow them to blame all their troubles on a group of people. They sought comfort in that. It is then, that he came into power. There are still Nazi groups around, but in far less numbers. If you are headstrong, then you wont allow some smooth talking hate-filled nitwit into convincing you how you feel about something. Its the weak ones that were convinced.
