    Everything's offensive nowadays.
    "We have more responsibility than power, I think. The newspaper can create great controversies, stir up arguments within the community or discussion, can throw light on injustices....just as it can do the opposite. It can hide things and be a great power for evil." -- Rupert Murdoch, 1968

    Why would "Jew" in itself be offensive?

    Context, people.

    I'm not aware that they do. I had to call a locksmith last Thursday. The guy that came out was from Israel, having only been in the US for less than a year. His name is Leo. He said: "I am from Israel. I am Jewish." Not: I am a Jew.

    Well, the Jews I know do. Frequently.

    Is that the only Jew you know?

    BTW - I noticed "Not, I am a Jew" was your addition.

    They have a right to do that.

    No, I have quite a few Jewish friends that were born here. We are above talking about something that will always lead to nowhere.

    Now I'm a bit curious. Blacks have "nigga," Jews have "jew," so what words do white people, Asian people, and Turks have?
