in English literature: use of the term to describe a common person who distinguishes themselves by going through the day without causing problems to those they interacted with publicly.
Joseph was proud of his Gentile nature, and carried himself in a manner that of a Nobleman even though his roots were clearly that of a peasant.

a term used by WASP intellectuals to denote non Jewish and non-Muslim monotheists, especially other Protestants.
The modern Western media IMHO doesn't seem to know that the word goy has 2 meanings, depending on who uses it and where: 1) when a Jew uses the term to speak to non-Jews, especially an educated WASP, he uses the term as a synonym for gentile. 2) when the term goy is used among and between Jews it often denotes a non-monotheist, i.e. an idol-worshiper.
