Ginger with a litigious nature and access to a cheap lawyer
I have a lawyer friend who when in doubt about the racist nature of any particular jibe, likes to insert "blacks" or "Jews" instead of the offending word to test the ambulance chasing prospects.

The results vary from sinister to hilarious, much like this thread.

Let's try
From eggs and spam's response:

At a friend's a while back now he tells me he's glad jew skips a generation as his dad used to be a jew before he went grey.

His mum shouts from the kitchen "He's still jewish in places!"

... Disgusted look between us.

Yeah that'll work.
Of course, though, you could do that with anything. Take a piece of copy from The Guardian's Polly Toynbee today on the Conservative party:

"Detoxifying the brand just goes on getting harder every day for David Cameron. The old radioactive Blacks have a long half-life and the political Geiger counter keeps on clicking: same old Blacks, same old Blacks."

See what I've done there? I've changed the references to 'the Conservatives' to 'Black'. It sounds racist after I've done this. Does this mean that Polly Toynbee is bigoted?

More to the point
Trying substituting "blacks" or "Jews" for "lawyers".
