Is It Appropriate for a Professor to Call On Me As "Young Jew!"?
I was sitting in my Real Estate Transactions course the other night (this past week was our first week back). The Professor asked something and I raised my hand to answer the question. The professor pointed at me and called out "Yes, Young Jew, what's the answer?"
I was a bit taken aback by the way he called on me so I hesitated, but before I could begin answering, a Chinese student behind me began answering and the professor didn't object that he'd called on someone else. So I didn't say anthing. After class, another frum guy commented on how funny it was that the guy's first name behind me actually is "Yung Ju"!!! (Though I know I'm not spelling it right) Whodathunkit?!
