rick sanchez KNOWS what it's like to be jewish

i would be angry about this:

I can’t see somebody not getting a job somewhere because they’re Jewish

and this:

I can’t really think — although I understand the plight of Jews, and all the experiences, and the things that have happened historically for them — but I can’t say that my buddy Glen or my buddy Izzy who I grew up with in South Florida ever were prejudiced against directly simply because they were Jewish. There may have been jokes around them or about other things, but it’s kinda — you know what I’m saying, it’s kind of a different thing.

but i can't be angry about something so fucking hypocritical. here's a member of an ethnic group, complaining that a member of a different ethnic group from his own can't understand the plight of his people, while expounding about his own deep-seated knowledge of what's it's like to be a member of another ethnic group.

ultimately, all i can get out of sanchez's perspective is that he doesn't think there is hate against jews (despite his own) but he wishes there was.

this is nothing more than evidence of the shallow and ignorant psyche of rich sanchez. i give jon stewart a lot of credit for teasing out sanchez's true nature.

And this is how whitey stays in power! Now, if only I could get a cut of that sweet sweet scratch. Guess I need to be more crackery.
