So! Hmmm. Have you ever used slurs that are an affront to Jewish people? If you haven't used any of those slurs yourself, have you heard any the slurs used in conversation that are demeaning to Jewish people?
One such slur is the phrase "Jew him down."
Click over to the following embedded link to The Phrase Finder to learn about the phrase "Jew him down."
I find it interesting that people I know, people who say they are my friends and who know I am Jewish, will use the phrase " I Jewed them down" and then do not understand why I find it offensive. I mean, these folks continue to use that phrase even though I have informed them that I do not like it. Consequently, I no longer consider anyone my friend nor will I associate with anyone who continues to use the phrase after I have expressed my displeasure in its use.

Okay, okay, so someone overcharged me for an item I purchased. Another person charged me an outrageous amount for an item of low quality that was no way worth the price. What do you say?

But, still, if you follow the embedded link, you can take a look at all the google search results for the phrase I got jewed.
Yeah, I know, this isn't the first time I have written a commentary that concerns Jewish people. Actually, I guess I have written several blog entries along those lines. Here, take a look at the search reults for the use of the word "Jew" in Roland Hansen Commentary entries.
I have also written quite a few things about this same overall topic over at my other blog, Roland's Ramblings, including one earlier today. You can search over there if you are inclined to find all of them over there; however, the only one to which I wish to link, and upon which I wish to close this Roland Hansen Commentary is the one I wrote today on Roland's Ramblings; it is Jew Hater Anthony Graziano Allegedly Firebombs Two Synagogues.
