    History of the Ghetto

    The word ghetto means slag, from the Latin word gettare, to pour or to cast. This Italian word was first used by the Venetians, who forced Jews to live behind walls in the most miserable part of the city near an iron foundry. The Ghetto in Venice was of course not the first nor the last European Jewish ghetto. As early as 1179, the third “Lateran Council” of the Catholic church decided that Christians should not live together with Jews (Lateran refers to SEXTUS LATERANUS, a Roman Consul who, long before Christianity, owned the Lateran palace where the council or meeting was held).

    This led to the segregation of Jews in most European communities. The areas in which Jews were allowed to live were not at first called Ghettos because that Italian name did not enter the European languages until the Venetians introduced it in the 16th century. In Germany, Jews were confined to a few streets called Judengasse or Jew alley. If you visit the town of Rothenburg in southern Germany today you can still see the street sign “Judengasse” there. Rothenburg maintains its medieval appearance for the sake of attracting tourists.

    Although many European communities already provided for Jewish enclaves, this was not enough for the citizens of Venice, who forced Jews to live on one of the islands which constitute Venice to this day. In 1516 the Jewish area was walled in. Only two gates allowed Jews to leave after sunrise and return before dark. From sunset to morning the doors were locked.

    Jews were also forced to wear only black clothes such as may still be seen among some of our Torah true brethren. In the Middle Ages, all Europeans were subject to the so-called sumptuary laws (sumptus is Latin for expense), requiring different social classes and occupations to wear clothes which identified them. Hence the nobility wore colorful and attractive clothes and peasants wore uniformly ugly clothes. Jews were the bottom of the hierarchy (holy rule) and therefore had to wear only black.

    Obviously this is some sort of troll garbage which, since its here, I Would like to talk about President Woodrow Wilson, because the identified 'dangerous southern democrat' entered in the arena after the triangle shirt waistcoat factory fire, I think I spelled correctly, in 1911. Many Dixie haters then don't realize we re-elected a fond rememberer of holding Robert E Lee's hand as a child, for this very value brought into office. He's seen as against the New York northern aggressive factory bosses crushing the little guys, a return of domestic tranquil womanhood and sacredness, a return of a great government protecting the people in traditional Democrat style. He's my closest link to this because Dixie got its chance to show its international, intellectual, and principled and ethical meaning to the world concluding world war 1, he took his strongly southern, Presbyterian, and Dixie ethics in suggesting the 14 points and a homeland to all the people's of Europe, sovereign control, end of empires and adjustment of all colonies and consent of governed. At Princeton university he was first to allow in jews or catholics or all faiths and no argument here catholics have been intolerant, Reformed tend to be heretic tolerant, a Christian Europe wasn't an intolerant Europe. Wilson might have suggested Israel to them before a Nationalistic Nazi timeline, Wilson heralded communism as a native government to Russia compared to greek orthodoxy, a time long gone by due to ideology wars today.

    To Kill a Mockingbird ,book and movie, is in a long line of sentimentalist narratives and persuasive works addressing southern ethics dating back to Harriet Beecher Stowe and Uncle Tom's Cabin. You can see the background on this from the song Listen to the Mockingbird or Take me Back to the Sweet Sunny South, and the spirit bird's calling native to Southern States, obviously God can put the Spirit and send the Dove to any places he wants and all forms and any language as holy as Latin, or why not greek more than latin. Anyway to kill a mockingbird's catchphrase is how atticus' grandfather said it was a sin to kill a mockingbird that never harmed anybody and just sang for you all the time, this time, referring to a blackman on trial, as the author was rebellious to southern standards placed on women.
