Polemics against the Oxford Dictionary: enter the word yid, a derogatory for jew associated to the fans of Tottenham
the LONDON - Polemics against the Oxford Dictionary to have inserted in the online version, some of the terms of the connotation of the anti-semitic, or "yid" and "yiddo", the two forms of the pejorative "jew". The term in the definition in the prestigious dictionary, it is assigned to the fans of Tottenham, as over the years have been offended by other fans opponents racist because of the origins and the connections with the jewish community of the football club in north London. For the accuracy: "Yid: A Jew: "a jew," it says in the dictionary, but also a "supporter of or player for Tottenham Hotspur Football Club" ("fan or player of Tottenham Hotspur Football Club").

it Is true that, out of spite towards the anti-semitic, or for pride, or for simple self-defense, over the years several fans of Tottenham have started to call themselves "yid army", "army jew", a po' as happened in the african-american community in the case of some racist insults, especially in the context of certain genres of musical such as rap. And it is also true that the dictionary shows how it is a derogatory term.

But for Spurs, it is a choice "misleading". Not surprisingly, various associations against anti-semitism have condemned in the past, this "adoption" of the term of the fans of the team in london. Very skeptical on the choice of the Oxford Dictionary of the famous jewish comedian David Badiel: "Other fans, however, continue to use Yid and Yiddo, as a term of racist and offensive. Among other things, the majority of the fans of the club is not a jew, then he has no right to claim this word."

The Oxford has also added other words, controversial in its online version, for example, in "Jew York", another term used by racist groups and suprematisti in their conspiracy theories about "New York ruled by the jews". For its part, the dictionary has answered so: "The Oxford English Dictionary records the use and development of the words in the English language, and reflects, rather than impose, the uses of language, some of which include terms that may be considered spregiativi. But, as in this case, in similar circumstances always point out".
