Targeted for hate last evening again.
Date: January 14, 2008 02:30AM
Yesterday evening someone yelled out, "Hey Jew boy!" at me three times about 1 block away from my apartment. This was the second time since September of last year that I had an incident that I had to report to the ADL and also to the police.
Last week, in New Brunswick, over 500 grave stones were toppled and some were broken as a Jewish cemetery was targeted for a bias crime. It seems that these types of incidents are on the rise as far as I can tell.
My father, never an optimist, always said that the US could get worse than Germany. The Talmud says that when times are good, people are brotherly. Well, times aren't good anymore and people aren't as brotherly as they were in the hippie era. This is definitely not the 60's anymore.
