    Re: Is the Term "Jew" Offensive?

    One time a person used the clever saying "to Jew someone down on a price" and I nearly had a fit, but he honestly didn't know that this was in any way derogatory.

    In fact, he thought it was a compliment, like to be "saavy with money".

    This kind of talk is regular talk apparently, in parts of the mid-west.

    Can u believe it?

    No, I wasn't talking about you but there are still people around today who believe in that bs, is what I meant.

    Sorry.

    I really hate polls that aren't public. What idiot started this thread anyway?

    I think it totally depends on the intent of the person using it. Some people (like me) use it because it is just a shortened version of Jewish and easier to say and type.

    Fair enough, my mistake.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    I thought it was common everywhere. Jewish people are well known for their expertise and skill at haggling. Arabs, too. It's part of the culture in the Middle Eastern regions.

    Yes I believe it, fore I also know someone who was of the same opinion.

    Not only did they think that, but did indeed use it as a compliment.

    Why should you find it challenging when everything you have posted has been incorrect... and you don't seem to know that.
