  1. Don’t forget that whether or not this person was Jew or Gentile, it was a human being so stop asking if it was or wasn’t. He bled like you would and died like you could. Rest his Soul. Even animals deserve the same compassion and no I don’t mean that “goyim” derogatory term.

    Let’s assume it was a Gentile. What will you do next?

  2. @4theloveofGod: The word goyim/goy is not a derogatory term, goy means nation, goyim means nations, referring to people of non-Jewish nations. If a person says it in a nasty way then it could sound derogatory. But words like gentile or non-jew could also sound derogatory if said in a nasty way. In normal conversation, these words by themselves all have no derogatory connotations. They’re all neutral terms.
