Sometimes I wish I had more time to watch TV.
Not really. All the kewl video is on the Internets:
“Big Brother” Shiksa Learns Jews Have Jewish Names

Relations between Israel and the “Big Brother” house are strained today, after a somewhat anti-Semitic rant from crybaby housemate Amber hit the Internet this week. Oy vey!
Where to begin, already? First of all, Amber said the majority of Jews she knows are “selfish.” She then went on to say that her mom and sister explained to her that one can tell who is Jewish based on “their last name” and “by their nose.”
Of course, the ADL’s Abraham Foxman has to issue a statement. Luckily, he just borrows from my post about hate on the WWW (see below).
It’s part of the unintended consequences of the communications revolution. Anybody can say what they do - but reality shows are now giving license to these expressions of anti-Semitism. Now, all of a sudden, the world is privy to their bigotry and it’s on national television… then enhanced on YouTube.
