What should I file this under?
Update: judging by the comments on The Root itself, it looks like the "explanation" for how this sort of thing can happen since there is officially no racism in this country (gag) is that Gates brought it on himself by not immediately playing step-and-fetchit with respect to his ID.

I Think I Tracked It Down
I guess I should, in the absence of finding one in the cameroon wrapper as I had it, maybe I should have an Oliva Series G?
Long Awaited (albeit by whom?) Weekly Parsha Blogging
How do Zionists deal with this week's Parsha in which we Jews are praised as a "people" ("am") different than all the "nations" ("goyim")? After all, the whole point of Zionism, pace whatever anti-Zionists imagine it to be, is that Israel is a nation like other nations?
OTOH, if we would have read Hukkat separately from Balak, we would have read the story Jeptha in which we see the neighbors of the Hebrew people acting, well, just like Israel's neighbors too often act today. Such disingenuity ... to which, of course, the anti-Zionists are blind -- I wonder why? ( / sarcasm ).
Still, Jeptha is really a piece of work, ain't he? Of course, the Zionists would consider someone like Jeptha a hero, and that we should ignore his shortcomings, etc. ... because he's on the right side in re Zionism, everything he did is ok as far as Zionists are concerned?
