I was following along on another thread " Hamas Scum ! " and a separate question raised its head. The question intrigued me but I did not want to divert from the main point of the thread so I decided to start a new thread. The question seems to be a rather simple one, but I can see where it might get complex in a hurry. IS THE WORD GOY A RACIAL SLUR ??? I am not sure but this is what I have gathered over the years. The word Goy refers to all races that are not Jews and since Jews are the chosen people all others are the ones who are not chosen. Now I don't know about others but that would seem to indicate to me that Jews consider us to be inferior in some way, and that to me is a RACIAL SLUR. Besides that it always smelled like a racial slur to me, kind of like ****, ******, patty, or a million others. Boy the human race sure is inventive when it comes to being offensive. So what do you guys think ?
