When I was growing up in rural North Carolina, I found anti-Semitism genuinely puzzling. How could it be any other way since I didn’t know any Jews and the only stereotypes I had ever heard about Jews were positive? Jews are frugal. Jews are good with money. Jews run their own businesses. To me, that sounded like a description of people that were smart, capable, and successful. Hating people like that is like hating Asians. How? Why? I’ve only met one person in my entire life who genuinely hated Asians and that came from his time being shot at by Asians in Vietnam. That didn’t excuse it or make it logical, but you could at least understand why he felt that way at a gut level. Nobody in America is dodging bullets being fired by Jewish gangs out celebrating Hanukkah.
