“Oh! You’re Jewish?!”

by everyonespetpeeves

Why is is that when someone finds out that the person he/she is talking to is Jewish, it is all of a sudden a surprise or a shock?  You don’t hear this happen with any other type of person.

Examples:  “Oh! You’re Christian?!”

“Oh! You’re black?!”

  “Oh! You’re in a wheelchair and are missing both of your legs?!”
