47. But, what if a Jew IS cheap or an African American DOES sit on the porch a lot?
Edited on Wed Nov-23-11 10:46 PM by No Elephants
Or a first American DOES want Manhattan back?

Or a Sicilian Italian IS a member of the Mafia?

Then, it is okay to use, and therefore help perpetuate an odious stereotype, right?

Think again.
