You can watch the full clip over at CNN but my comment on this is, if you so casually say the phrase “One of our attorneys is a Jew” then you are inherently a racist.
Judge Roy Moore is having a tough few days and having your wife get on the podium and speak for you and say something like this points to a bigger more sinister problem. This means they are so relaxed in saying a racist term what else is under the covers? As we have all learned with politicians, the things you hear them say and do are only the tip of the iceberg. Similar to our President to be honest. He continues to say the stupid shit on Twitter for instance. And in case you are not familiar with why you don’t say the word “Jew”, here is a refresher:
It is widely recognized that the attributive use of the noun Jew, in phrases such as Jew lawyer or Jew ethics, is both vulgar and highly offensive. In such contexts Jewish is the only acceptable possibility. Some people, however, have become so wary of this construction that they have extended the stigma to any use of Jew as a noun, a practice that carries risks of its own. In a sentence such as There are now several Jews on the council, which is unobjectionable, the substitution of a circumlocution like Jewish people or persons of Jewish background may in itself cause offense for seeming to imply that Jew has a negative connotation when used as a noun. – link
