The pilot was Jewish, and the co-pilot was Taiwanese. It was the first time they had flown together, and it was obvious by the silence that they didn’t get along.

After 30 minutes, the Captain finally spoke. He said, "I don’t like Chinese." The co-pilot replied, "Why is that?" The pilot said, "You guys bombed Pearl Harbor. That’s why I don’t like Chinese."

The co-pilot said, "The Chinese didn’t bomb Pearl Harbor. That was the Japanese." The pilot answered, "Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese... it doesn’t matter. They’re all alike."

Another 30 minutes of silence. Finally the co-pilot said, "I don’t like Jews." The pilot replied, "Why not? Why don’t you like Jews?" The co-pilot replied, "The Jews sunk the Titanic."

The pilot tried to correct him. "No, no. The Jews didn’t sink the Titanic. It was an iceberg." The co-pilot answered, "Iceberg, Goldberg, Rosenberg. It doesn’t matter. They’re all alike."
