Profile Information

Bio
Male, Jewish, in my early sixties, married with kids (well, at this point I guess that should be "kid"). Thanks to Lezlie for avatar artwork - sort of a translation of my screen name. "Salaam" is peace in Arabic, hence the peace sign. (No, my name doesn't mean "hunk of meat" and yes, the pun is intentional.)

There are things it shares with other forms of bigotry and things it doesn’t. If you have either practiced aspects of this or tolerated aspects of this because you didn’t recognize it and I gave you a hard time, I apologize…
