oh my god I was waiting for a bus and there were these two fedora wearing clones stood nearby and I thought ‘wow they exist in real life’ and then twO MORE GOT OFF A BUS AND JOINED THEM AND THEY ALL LOOK EXACTLY THE SAME AND I JUST DON’T UNDERSTAND
It’s like the matrix glitched.
i can’t stop laughing
i’m 98% sure these are young orthodox jews you FUCKING JACKASSES
These aren’t fedoras, they’re hats used by Yeshivish and Hasidic Jews because their faith requires them to keep their heads covered. Also, you can see the Payot (sidelocks) on the older ones growing in. ALSO, two of them have the same pamphlet, they probably just got out of school or a service. A L S O you can even see the Tallit hanging out from under their clothes.
Next time please try rubbing two brain cells together long enough to consider a situation that isn’t “haHA they’re WEArinG HATs that KINDA VAGUELY LOOK like a fedora this is COMEDY GOLD”
and this is why education about other religions is important
Um…. I know I’m probably asking for it, but perhaps when educating someone about your religion or another religion you might want to check the sarcasm and demeaning tone of voice at the door.
The person who took that photo came across something new and had no context for which to describe what they observed so they used language familiar to them to describe the hat. This was innocent shock and awe at a unique experience.
Because of your very demeaning and aggressive correction, the person who posted the photo will now associate shame, rejection, anger, and lack of empathy with exposing a lack of knowledge and quite possibly with people who look like that because of the funny ways our brains make associations. This has the potential to make them less likely to expose ignorance for fear of the reaction, and deprives them of other people’s experience and insight regarding the topic at hand.
This is why eliminating ignorance should always be from a point of respect for the ignorant person with the expectation that the knowledge you choose to share will help them in some way. At least, until the ignorant person decides to remain ignorant after a polite correction. Then it’s probably okay to whip out attitude. Until then, not so much.
See? I just corrected your ignorance and attitude without demeaning you as a person in any way, and offered a well reasoned argument supporting my opinion.
The question is, are you going to take the polite correction or will you remain ignorant in the impact you have?
