Are Jews white?
And every color in between
Real Jews are Middle Eastern white. Not Caucasian.
Real as in those who are Jewish and are Israeli by blood. Not a convert.
Surv ... I suggest that you meant to say that historic Jews are Semite. They are not considered white, or more precisely Caucasian.
Yeah I meant historic. Pretty sure though to be 100% Jewish you have to have a tie in to ancient Israel by blood and then you know the rest.
Some. I have Jewish friends who are black, Mexican, Korean, white.
I’m blonde haired, blue eyed with lily white skin. You can’t get much whiter but I am Jewish nonetheless.
Ironically, I look more white than most of the Nazis did and neo-Nazis still do.
Wow! You have a Mexican Jewish Friend?
I have a Rusia Jewish friend 😉
Yes I do. He’s from Mexico City. It’s funny. His dad converted to marry his mom. One day he was talking about his cousin Jesus and I was like “whoa, wait......” I didn’t even get out “you have a cousin named Jesus?!?!” (I had only recently learned “hay-zeus” was the equivalent of Jesus) when he shut me off saying “My dad’s side. They are catholic”. It was funny.
Where we are building our new house, there are some Argentinian Jews near us. One of the guys is my age. I can’t wait to move.
I was talking about a certain Mexican Jew in this app....
Down here we have a bunch of Jewish immigrants from all over, specially Latin America, but there are also a bunch of Russians, Israelis and Europeans.
My sister married a Venezuelan, my brother an Argentinian and my mom ex bf was Israeli. It’s a very interesting community. Last Rosh Hashanah my mom have people from literary 12 different countries over for dinner.
Do you live in Mexico City?
Used to. Now I live in South Florida
How does Moses make his coffee?
Hebrews it 🤣
Hispanics are also white. I mean them being considered not white is a silly American thing.
In Europe, we don't consider the Spanish to be of a different race.
Um, Judaism is a religion, not a race. They can be white... or not.
But it is also an ethnicity.
Kry ... non-convert, ethnic Jews are Semite, not white. The poll was created to show the ignorance of those who play the identity politics game.
I was watching a Ben Shapiro video where he was called a “white supremacist” by a numbskull leftist and wanted to see how many people are as confused as that kid.
Oh the lefties are always calling Shapiro a white supremacist AND a Nazi of all things. That’s what happens to extremely naive people whose political dogma requires that they be consumed by nothing but hate. You hate everything and everyone based on supposition rather than fact.
Kry ... yes they do!
Jews are adherents to a religion. Hebrews are an ethnicity, not necessarily Caucasian.
Ferg ... non-convert, ethnic Jews are Semite, not white.
Well, I don't really know how to answer that. If we are talking ethnicity than they are Semitic, some consider that white and some don't. Also there are ethnic and religious Jews of every complexion. Some are and some aren't. I will add that Ashkenazi Jews are at least white in appearance.
Tariq ... good answer. The purpose of this poll question was to expose the confusion — mainly in the left — that ethnic Jews are white. The problem with identity politics is that many who subscribe to the silly orthodoxy are actually ignorant to the nuances.
Jews are of every race
LJ ... agreed, and ethnic Jews are ...?
Jews, just like Christians, come in all colors. Judaism is a religion, not an ethnicity.
That being said, the Jews who inhabited ancient Israel were Semitic people, with olive complexions, black hair, and predominantly brown eyes, so anthropologists would not consider them to have been Caucasian.
Not that ethnicity matters at all...there is one race, the human race.
And we’re all trying to get to the finish line... just not TOO soon.
Tom ... agreed. Ethnic Jews are Semites.
Most Jews are white, but a lot aren’t
Most Jews are not white, they are Semite.
Aren’t the Ashkenazi all Italian?
They have Italian ancestry. They aren’t total purebreds
Is Ivanka Trump white?
Yes, she is a convert.
They have to be for those who believe in a white Jesus.
Az ... yours is a silly rationale. Jews are Semite, Jesus is a Semite.
The white ones are.
I’m pretty sure most Jews are Jewish.
Ethnic Jews are semitic though some claim related to Caucasian.
Jews in general can be any race, and may have been adherents of Judaism for generations, here, no racial affiliation.
Not Sammy Davis Jr!
Judaism is a religion, not a skin color they can be white, Black, yellow, or red.
They have seen more persecution than any other religion in modern history however.
Not just modern history.
Pogroms go way back:
You can even argue for oppression if not persecution in Roman times.
I just added that to avoid some smart Alec coming in and saying “you know, x group fifty thousand years ago...” etc.
Not all of them.
Polster ... setting aside converts or the children of converts, are Jewish heritage individuals white?
It depends how you define “white.”
Polster ... thanks for confirming that leftists can’t even keep their moronic identity politics straight!
Thanks for the good laugh!
Irish immigrants weren’t considered white when they first arrived in America. Some people consider all Hispanics non-white. You think this is black and white, but it’s really not so simple.
Polster ... please keep digging. It’s fun to watch you try!
You haven’t even explained what your parameters for “white” are. Do you even know?
Polster ... an, who could predict that when your argument failed that you’d attempt to argue over definitions.
What is your definition of “white?”
Polster ... I don’t play the identity politics game. You’re in your own to play with your silly definitions!
You still can’t think of a definition?
Polster ... put words in my mouth, that’s all you’ve got. I simply won’t play your game. You lose!
And you still can’t think of a definition.
