Actually almost all of them are by the legendary American cartoonist Thomas Nast, inventor of the Republican elephant and Democratic donkey. He sure hated those immigrants. And people say the Republican Party changed a lot from the 1860s.

Whoops, you're exactly right. A landmark book by David Roediger, The Wages of Whiteness, explores, in part, how the Irish gained status in the US. Rather than find common cause with the other shit-upon peoples of America—blacks, Asians, Jews, and Southern and Eastern European immigrants—they identified with and absorbed the hierarchy and got in as much as possible with the in crowd. They may not have made much money, but they benefited from gaining the status of white in relation to all those other subhumans. Sorry, Marxists, the revolution has been delayed by scrambling for a place in the pecking order.

Happy birthday to a dude who I can honestly count among my best buddies; you're a great pal and a stellar person, James. Also, having seen you with my own eyes, I can 100% confirm you look just like this:

Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

True. I just googled "stereotypical Jewish woman" and she was the first to come up.

Don't encourage James to expect recognition on more than one day a year. It's bad for his development.

Happy belated birthday, James.
