The first African-American player in professional baseball was Moses Fleetwood Walker (thank you, The Dollop podcast). Many of the "rules" banning non-white players were created especially for him. Jackie Robinson had to tear them all down.
But I'm sure you're currently busy with Belgium.
Just writing famous Jewish banking family and this being the letter R only should really be enough of a clue.
The "international" part of the clue I find concerning since that a common antisemitic dog-whistle term used towards to Jewish people. For example Henry Ford's antisemitic pamphlets "The International Jew" so I just the word international should at the very least be removed from the clue.
As I said before the clue can also be reworded as an option or worst case that clue be totally removed, but at bare minimum the word "international" should removed.
While you may view international as a neutral or even complimentary term that doesn't matter in the broader context.
The reality is these things exist, people believe them lots of people, and the amount of damage and harm that comes from that is very real and very dangerous.
Just look at the recent uptick in mass sh**ters at Jewish places of worship or events and huge rise in antisemitic hate crimes in the past several years.
So, yes even on quiz site like this the wording matters, the words matter, and what the words mean are important.
You might not get it because it is not your reality, but that doesn't change the facts or the reality for other people.
Fact is the way the clue is worded is problem and it needs to change.
