The character is clearly written as a white, middle-upper class New York Jew. That is a fact.

I don't see anything at all in the text of the show that says he's white.


If you want to say, well, it can be cast any race -- would you say that if the character was written as someone Black from New York? You would say it's totally inappropriate. That my friend is a double standard.

This brings us back to issues of blackface, stemming from the minstrel show era and beyond - and you know full well that no one is ready to go back to that yet. I doubt that will happen for generations to come. And you know this. Or, you're really in denial, or pretending to be.
