If you grow up facing prejudices of any kind for who you are, you grow an attitude, not a thick skin. Came across this post from Sept, 2011 where I took umbrage at a TV interview with the actress Julianna Margulies.

She said her husband was half-Irish & half-Jewish which meant their kid would know how to think & how to drink. Wrote her saying I was pleased she acknowledged the intellectual contributions of the Irish but didn’t think she ought to disparage Jewish people like that since they’ve made their own considerable contributions to human culture. Never heard back from her.
