American Jew Voice in Poland

Caucasian American of the Jewish faith

:)

Jewish can be a religion or an ethnicity or both.

There are legion atheist jews. Judaism isn't a religion, it's a racial credo. Jews exhibit very real DNA markers to distinguish themselves from the rest of the population, including a host of genetic traits making jews particularly susceptible to certain combinations of neurological & other diseases due to generations of selective breeding practices. There is nothing hostile in this statement, nor intended.

Are jews as white as the Poles?

Jews again are technically "Caucasians", as are Hindus, Georgians, Turks and any number of other related groups. Whether they are as light-haired, light-eyed and fair skinned as Poles, for instance, it depends on how assimilated the Jews in question are:-)

For that matter there are plenty of shortish, stocky dark-haired, brown-eyed Poles, clearly "white", yet not fitting the stereotype of the blond, blue-eyed Pole of Communist propaganda.

I agree that Jews are Caucasians,but HIndus are mainly Indian,nothing Caucasian there.
Or am I missing something?

If that's the case, why in the context of the killings in Pittsburgh do we hear about how evil white supremacy is? If the Pittsburgh victims were Christian Poles, we would not be reminded about "white supremacy", would we? Something does not make sense here.

None of it makes sense.
Like the elderly German Jewish couple that were murdered and were true American patriots.

Yo, Hindus are technically "Indo-Aryan", therefore, although darker-skinned than Swedes or Norwegians, nonetheless belong to the Caucasian race, case closed, acceptable or not.
Rich Mazur 4 | 3,159

And I still prefer Swedes or Norwegians and don't like Hindus. Americans should be allowed to express their preferences when it comes to who is allowed into their country without any debate or name calling. Just as everyone is free to decide who is invited to dinner and who is not.

Because you are ethnocentric, Rich! You're entitled to your own opinions, but NOT to your own facts.

Lyzsko, as you know, the term caucasian encompasses many and requires further necessary specifics to describe its use here. You may just as well hope to refer to yourself as bi-pedal to define being human. Let's not mistake the classification of caucasian for the ethnicity and racialism of being white, which jews most certainly are not.

Namechanging, disguising ones ethnic background, intermarrying or attempting to assume a mercurial white identity when it's advantageous won't change the forces underlying mandatory tribal commitments, nor motivations, nor fundamental loyalties to same.

If only all jews appeared distinctly different from ethnic whites it would serve to avoid several problems. Powdered substances may look identical; one may be poison, the other nourishment.

I agree that Jews are Caucasians,

Is being Black a nationality ? If they are not, why is Jewish ?
Lyzko 32 | 7,919
20 Jan 2019 #72
Black is "Negroid", Jewish is "Semitic", technically (not theoretically) a branch of "Caucasian"!
johnny reb 31 | 6,272
20 Jan 2019 #73
So if you admit Black is not a nationality then Jewish Caucasians are not a nationality either. No

A mosaic of madness...How many times did we see this:

Jews and Poles...
Jews and Catholics...
American Jews and Jewish Americans...

So which one is it? Depending on the situation?

Are Muslims a race?

If not how can anyone be racist for not liking them
Rich Mazur 4 | 3,159
20 Jan 2019 #76
Let me explain.
If YOU don't like them, you are a mean, hateful, racist sob.
If THEY don't like you and slash your throat, it's cultural. And you most likely deserved it as explained in the sentence above.
Lyzko 32 | 7,919

Jewish is not a race! Never was, never will be. It is BOTH a religion as well as an ethnicity, much as being "Hispanic" is also being Caucasian aka "white", while their faith is "Roman Catholic", NOT their nationality:-)
Miloslaw 12 | 3,302

Agreed.
Jews are not a race.
Like Mulims or Catholics they are a religeous group.
People stereotyoe Jews into having a certain appearance,there is some truth in this but not too much.
The fact is that Judaism never reached nor converted a broad spectrum of races,unlike Islam or Catholicism.
But I frequently meet Jews that do not fit the stereotype.

That would be news to those who are self-admitted Jews and self-admitted atheists at the same time.

Good point Rich,obviously some Jews do percieve themsleves to be a race.
But they are wrong.
Rich Mazur 4 | 3,159

The problem I see is that they use the term that's best for them at the moment.
In the pc world now, "racist" ends all careers. "Anti-semitic" - political careers. "Anti-ethnic" does not even register. That is why they go for that howitzer, "you are a racist", first, even if they know it's bulls**t. And know they do, 'cause they are not dumb.

Jews are considered semites basically arabs, so in that sense they are a race.

I wish that us and Europe adopted Israeli practices of dna testing and only gave citizenship to those with the desired genes like israel does.

Once I become a polish politician my agenda will be to copy everything israel does. I will say things like if elected I will ban interracial intereligious marraige, build a huge wall, demand billions from the us, take muslims property and other things that will sound outlandish. At the end of every such statement I'll add two to three simple words - like israel and like israel does. Neither the left nor right will dare criticize me because then they'd be criticizing israel thus be called anti semitic.

The genius is in its simplicity.
Miloslaw 12 | 3,302

Jews are considered semites

This is true but so many of them are obviously not.
So I say again,Jews are not a race.
In the same way as Muslims and Catholics are not a race.

All three like feel-good stories.

It reminds me of de Niro in good fellas in the scene where dudes go on a spending spree after the heist

"I don't care where you got it from. Get it out. Get it out of here now!"

A CNN survey of Europeans found that about one third of them said they knew nothing or very little about the Holocaust.
The same survey showed that only 15% of the population of Poland had an unfavorable attitude toward Jews.
This was one of the lowest surveyed in the twelve European countries where 96% of Europe's Jews live.
Jews feel safer living in Poland then any other country in Europe that was surveyed.

You are one of the very few here that I respect B.B. so I took my time and effort to find it for you.

A Shadow Over Europe

Quite an interesting read that includes a lot about Poland.
