David keeps his religion a secret and must endure such frightening situations as listening to two boys talk about what a good deal one got on his record player, "I Jewed him down."(on the price) one boy says. One day his secret comes out and, and, and well nothing really happens. Early in the movie, David is shown with his fellow lower class friends who, of course, do not care that he is Jewish. You can tell that they are hoods because they all ride motorcycles and wear black leather jackets over their blue jeans and white t-shirts.His roommate is more upset that David kept it a secret than the fact that he is actually Jewish. One of them hangs a banner above David's bed with a swastika on it. If he is such an "A" personality type then why does he take off his Star of David necklace and hide his religion? David Greene's the only one I've ever known up close." "What's your point, Connor.? Absolutely every boy is wearing blue jeans and a white t-shirt. Did the costume designer for this movie walk around with a picture of Fonzie to make sure everyone was as close to that stereotype as possible.In 1990, Solomon Perel's autobiography, Europa Europa was turned into a motion picture.It tells the true story of a Jewish boy who went to school with Nazis who never realized who he was.The movie is written so as to feel sorry for David.

I think it must be written in some Hollywood screen writers rule book that all rich white characters must respond disparagingly to all and any minority characters they come into contact with.
When a group of people of the same minority are together.there is a possibility that a joke will be made about white people or about another minority. But just because we all do those things does not make us all bigots. School Ties asks the audience to feel sorry for David because a few jerks make fun of him.If his character was as strong as it is written to be then none of the taunts should matter that much. David keeps his secret because he is insecure about not being popular.What kid in school does not get teased at some point or another? If they discover what his religion is, they would send him to a concentration camp and he would likely be killed.
Two years later, came School Ties, about a Jewish boy who goes to school with a bunch of Christians, who occasionally make jokes at a Jew's expense.
