Back in the 50s and early 60s, most prestigious universities had Jewish quotas. It was said to be 10%. I remember a large celebration party when a brilliant local Jewish boy was accepted at Northwestern.
The more interesting thing to contemplate, is that most of the parents of today’s students would tell anyone who asked that they never experienced any prejudice for being Jewish.
This time around, Christians get to be included, too.
Someone is always selected to be the goat.
Reading Richard Feynman was THE MOST fascinating thing. He was there during the most dramatic periods. The Jewish fellow who betrayed the atomic bomb to Stalin borrowed Feynman’s car to do so.
Feynman said, “We cannot be held responsible for the world as we find it.”
I believe that means that is is crazy to hold grudges. But always JUDGE PEOPLE by their actions.
Feynman was considered by the Jewish establishment to be a “non believer”, whatever that is. Probably like a deist or something?
I so wonder what he’d say about obama...
He experienced hitler, stalin etc.
Feynmen was a prototypical perfect human, IMHO. He never stooped to putting people into categories other than they did good things, or they did evil things. For the latter, he helped build the ATOMIC BOMB.
