Trying not to have a bad day

- Way beyond the Rubicon
Weirdly not growing up. As a kid all I knew about Jewish people was the basic differences from Christianity and what happened to them in the Holocaust.Surely yous have all come across antisemtic tropes being used regularly.
Now I assume this was because there were no (openly?) Jewish people in my class/school or in my friend groups. Certainly there was no shortage of racist jokes but antisemitism was so tied up with being a Nazi that I never saw the tropes outside of that specific context.
I obviously see it more these days but I wonder was it just a fluke or did I just not know what to look out for.
