Yes, Jackie Mason is a very positive role model for the Jewish people who live here in America. He is a very talented comedian, and has built up a very large fan base, that makes him a good person to use as a role model for the Jews that live here.
Yes, Jackie Mason is a positive role model for the American Jewish community, because a lot can be said in a positive way through jokes. With his jokes, America can learn about Judaism, and Mason can take a non-threatening approach to exploring the stereotypes, positives, and criticisms of Jewish culture.
Jackie Mason is a positive role model for the American Jewish community because he is a comedian that uses old-fashioned, mostly clean comedy in his routines. He is not a corporate idol or a politician, characters who often make people feel negatively. Jackie Mason makes people laugh, and that can never be a negative thing.
I believe Jackie Mason could be considered a positive role model for the American Jewish community, but he is not free of unsightly incidents that have damaged his persona. I believe in finding a role model it is important to take the good and get rid of the bad. This would be necessary in the case of Jackie Mason.
Jackie Mason's jokes have gone too far in some instances and he isn't a good role model for the Jewish-American community. He resigned from being a rabbi after three years to start his stand-up act. Ever since, he's been touted as funny and controversial. Calling certain blacks a "schvartze" was too far, even though Mason apologized for it later. "Schvartze" is often a racist term meaning "black" in German.
