Adam Sandler does not define who I am no more than any man, except my father and sons. Adam Sandler is no more than cheap, not that funny junior high comedy with a little bit of Air Supply or some other cheesy 80s music thrown in. In fact, I once smashed the crap out of the VHS The Wedding Singer because I was tired of people watching it.
I define who I am, my ancestors do. I would never let some idiot think he can define me or my people nor will I give him two minutes. Yet, I write this…
Because of genocide and who plays the genocide card. Seriously, fuck Hollywood and it’s cheesy ass movies. What it comes down to to me is the genocide card.
You never hear Indians say numbers because we were never counted but you will always hear Jewish people say 6 million. The estimate for North and South America is 100 million. We were killed, slaughtered and we are marginalized to this day. We are not making million dollar movies nor are we owning football teams, basketball teams, baseball teams, nor are we commissioners of any major league sports.
We also do not throw our genocide in peoples faces by the numbers, we don’t have holocaust museums, and our holocaust is not even recognized.
I have friends who are Jewish and they are great friends so I debated writing this because of them, but here is why the uproar over Adam Sandler.
We know holocaust, we know genocide, and we know terrorism. It is in our DNA that we carry. But we don’t carry the need to make fun of anyone else’s strife, even if they overcame on our land and became millionaires. We don’t feel the need to call his people names like Oven Baby or Hitler’s Whore. No, we have more class than that.
Adam Sandler and the big walk off took away from issues my people still face everyday and have been facing for 500 years. Issues Adam Sandler’s people faced during Hitler’s regime. No one tells Jewish people to get over it but we hear it every day.
Now that I said that and Fuck Adam Sandler, I will go on to writing about our youth suicide rates, our poverty, our children taken away and sold, all the issues the Jewish don’t have to face because they found opportunity in the country that occupies my ancestors land. The same country that supplies their occupation of another land.
So yeah fuck you Adam Sandler oppress your own people. We got real battles to fight.
