3. Forcing a Jewish guy to convert to Christianity
Our heroes in Merchant of Venice hate Shylock for being a usurer (meaning he charges exorbitant rates on his loans—in this case, a literal pound of flesh as collateral). When he tries to collect on the meat, they turn the tables on him via legal trickery. In the end, they don't return his loan, take half of what he owns in addition, AND force him to convert to Christianity. Also, this is a comedy. Hm.
