Really? Do people often spraypaint xed out shamrocks or Union Jacks on Irish churches? Does Min. Farrakhan ever talk about the undue influence Italians have on the restaurant business or the Greeks in the dry cleaning industry?

My point is that in many ways Jews think of themselves as white, but in reality they are only on the fringe of whiteness; because whiteness in America is indeed flexible. This flexibilty allows it to expand and contract with equal ease.
