A Conversation With The Wife About Race and Ethnicity

Having spent half her life in the Philippines, my wife is only now catching up on many things native-born Americans know implicitly if they weren't educated in public schools.

So the other night, we were watching a movie we'd seen before, Liberty Heights, because it it had, as the announcer used to say long ago, it brought "you a message of interest and importance." And one of the message my wife got was…

She: So the Jews stick together like the Chinese do?

Me: Absolutely. But then they have to…

She: Filipinos are the worst.

Me: Oh no, white people are the worst


Me: They not only don't stick together, they actually help the other colors beat them.

She: Oh yeah.


By the way, the best line in the movie is one of the all-time best, I think… Bebe Neuwirth is on the phone with her husband, Joe Mantegna, and she's frantic because her Jewish son is going to a party dressed as Hitler.

Joe as Nate Kurtzman: "Put the Fuhrer on the ohone!"

About tedwest

A longtime veteran of comedy and political forums, I decided that I needed a more restful venue because... well... I finally hate everybody. Except my wife that is... and my ex-wife.. and... no, that's about it. I lead about as simple a life as one can, preferring activities that include anything that doesn't involve going out and seeing YOU! And I particularly enjoy what I call "Get the Bitch" movies on Lifetime. You know the ones where the intended victim finally does something so incredibly stupid that she forfeits her right to live, and from that moment on you're rooting for the stalker. Of course, it rarely works out the way you want, but when it does, the feeling you get is... well, there's nothing else like it, other than, maybe, eating chocolate chip cookies. Oh, and I'm proudly anti-wildlife, both foreign and domestic, and anti-environment - especially foreign environments. I think Howard Stern put it best when he said, "If fifty percent of the population died tomorrow, I can live with that." And I feel the same about the other fifty percent, so together, we've pretty much got it all covered.

  1. Some of my Slavic reletives voted for Democrats even after Roosevelt and Truman sold out Eastern Europe to the USSR. The sick part is that England declared war on Germany for invading Poland, but not the USSR.
