Jewish people are not "white."
That is, if the word "white" refers to a person of European descent then Jews are not "white."
Genetic studies have clearly shown that Jewish people, including the Ashkenazi, are from the Levant. That makes us of Middle Eastern descent. We are the people from the Land of Israel. This is where Jewish culture was formed and the Hebrew language and the Jewish faith and the various traditions, all got their start. This is what makes us indigenous to Israel.
Western feminists and Leftists, like Tamika Mallory of the Women's March, claim that "white Jews" -- because she sees us as "white" people -- are thus White Supremacists... because, naturally, all "white" people are supremacists.
In truth, of course, "whiteness" is not a biological concept. It is a political concept.
When I was growing up to be "white" meant to be a person of European descent, now it refers to something akin to evil.
The racist Left has decided that "whiteness" refers to an oppressive state of consciousness wherein those heinous "white" people lord their "privilege" over their not "white" victims. And now they want to force it down Jewish throats. The notion also reinforces the idea of Israel as a Euro-Colonial "settler state" with the Arabs as the bunny-like indigenous victims.
In the middle of the twentieth-century the Euros did not consider us "white" and many demanded that we repatriate ourselves back to our homeland in "Palestine." Now they do consider us "white" and many progressive-left "people of color" want us to go back to Europe.
In truth, it is just the latest way to screw over the Jews and, thereby, justify the ongoing violence against us from Jerusalem to Paris to Crown Heights... not to mention South Africa where recently the head of the SA Likud was assassinated.
It is a way to rob us of our history and identity in order to force us into the role of the monster... as racists like Mallory and Linda Sarsour and Louis Farrakhan have always done. If the Women's March thinks of itself as anti-racist, it is sadly mistaken. It is blind and it is what racists have always done to the Jewish people.
