    The comment asking if Kornheiser was a "Jew?"

    Is it offenseive because the person didn't ask if he was Jewish, and instead asked if he was a "Jew?"

    It's not like he asked if TK was a K rhymes with bike.


    I have this issue with my son's school. They call black kids "African-American" and white kids, "white".

    My son told me a teacher told him saying "black" is offensive.

    Why is it ok to call my son "white" then?

    I think this is why I jumped all over that one guy, but I think everyone can see my point. Can't ya's??

          We could be called Euro American, or even caucasian. Or white devil. I could give a rats ash less what you call me. You can call me the Kraut,Mick,Guinnea,Wop,Dego oppressor. I could care less.

            If you understand the s/n, you know 4f is an insult.

                    Whatever, honestly, what one person says or thinks is not the end of the world. He probably didn't mean anything by it, at least I hope not, and didn't think it would stir up all of this heat. So lets just forget about it. Yes, Kornheiser is Jewish, no it is not because he talks a lot, yes he is a good analyst........1 more...........ummmm......yes, the Giant will smash the Bears on Sunday.

                      What people prefer to be called needs to stop morphing, it's tough to keep track.

                        I don't care either, but why should my son watch his tongue, hoping not to "offend' anyone and wonder why he can't call his friends "black", but they can call him "white"?

                        It's just wrong, and confusing to an impressionable mind.

                            Well, if talking a lot was the determining factor we'd all be considered yenta's. A yiddish word by the way. Mazel Tov biothces.

                            Oh I hear you. I stopped caring about offending people long ago. If you're easily offended, you need to reevaluate what's important.

                                You guys were told about this kind of stuff being discussed here, and you were told about it countless times

                                If you can't keep race, religion, and/or politics out of this forum, you will not post here again

                                Plain and simple. No room for discussion, and don't say we didn't warn each and every one of you about it.
