A man at a yard sale said the clothes must come from Jews because “they use a lot of starch”


Many years ago, we had a yard sale. A man came up and was looking at some pants, neatly folded, looking new. And then he said something I will always remember: “These pants are from Jews; they use a lot of starch.” I was speechless. It wasn’t much, but it was enough hate to last me a lifetime.
