It's Not Racist If It's About Your Own People: Old Jews Tell Jokes

Hi Meltingpot Readers,

My boss is Jewish. I'm Black.

The other day, I showed him the "Shit Black Girls Say to White Girls Video." He hadn't heard about it. He watched, he laughed. He asked me how much of the phrases in the video I'd heard before. I told him, most, if not all. It was a tiny teachable moment.

Then he showed me something, a website called Old Jews Telling Jokes. I watched. I laughed. I asked him if all old Jews were funny. Turns out they are. I'm kidding. Oy! But still another tiny teachable moment for me. I'd never heard about this site, nor thought of old Jewish people in the pantheon of great comedians. Check out the website and prepare to be amused, but also to learn a little a bit too.

I think it's all about exposure, people. And humor. So, here's a (PG-13) Jewish funny for you. Enjoy.
