Are Jews Bad Tippers?

They are indeed, at least according to some of the editorial staff at UofA's Daily Wildcat. Accusations of antisemitism and lukewarm apologies are surrounding this latest college paper scandal, caused by a thoughtless, unfunny cartoon.

The cartoon, created by Joseph Topmiller, shows a cafe receipt that totals $78.73. But the customer, a "Mark Goldfarb", only left a tip of $5.27.

The caption says, "Attention all crappy tipping Jews!!! Just because you're ‘screwing' the server…does not mean that it's a mitzvah."

Want to drop Joseph a line, and ask him what he was thinking? His email is conveniently provided on the Arizona Daily Wildcat website. Oh, heck–out of the generosity of my Jewish heart, I'll spare you the trip and post it right here:

Joseph's Editor-in-Chief, Allison Hornick, claims that her editorial staff discussed the cartoon, and although questions were raised, they decided to run it anyway. She does not explain why they decided to run it, although she did offer a half-assed apology.

"The comic did not intend to maliciously attack or disrespect the Jewish community. We apologize to any readers who were offended."

The ADL has already offered conduct sensitivity training with the editorial staff. Can't wait to see the cartoons that come out of that!

  • I have to express some thanks to you for bailing me out of this challenge. After scouting throughout the internet and coming across concepts which were not powerful, I was thinking my entire life was done. Living devoid of the answers to the issues you have sorted out as a result of your article content is a crucial case, as well as the kind that would have badly damaged my entire career if I hadn’t encountered your blog. Your primary knowledge and kindness in controlling almost everything was precious. I am not sure what I would have done if I had not encountered such a subject like this. I can at this point look forward to my future. Thanks for your time so much for your expert and result oriented help. I will not think twice to recommend your site to any individual who desires guidance about this subject.

  • Howdy are using WordPress for your blog platform? I’m new to the blog world but I’m trying to get started and set up my own. Do you require any html coding expertise to make your own blog? Any help would be really appreciated!
