A U.S. football announcer said he was joking when he referred to a Jewish stereotype in a recent television interview. Hank Stram, who said, “Yeah, I was ready to play that Jewish organ. … Hit the cash register,” on an ESPN cable television show, said he has friends of different ethnicities and that “in the neighborhood where I grew up, you were always kidding one another like that. Nobody was ever malicious about it.”
