Can't blame 'em, there was a time in the Dark Ages when the Catholic
Church had a rule forbidding Christians from charging interest, and of
course, no one can lend money without charging interest for very long,
because of bills. *So the Jews, having no such rule, stepped in.

Similar to the Dalit in India.
Someone has to do the dirty work.

Yes, and when you buy a fancy car you get real dirty. I say it wasn't
enough to make you want a car, but made you believe you needed a fancy
SUV with a 50K price tag. Everybody is dirty in this, the doctor, the
lawyer and the banker.

Only the Bicycle Mechanic is clean in all of this. He's there for you.

Well perhaps Muzi and Cholo want to keep it a secret by I'll let you
in on it anyway. Bicycle shops, like any other main street business,
want to make a profit, in fact they have to make a profit as to keep
the doors open they have to pay salaries, rent, taxes, maintain a
stock of goods to sell, and things like that. And, to add insult to
injury, they have to deal with fools like you.
