Sorry, Jews are after the Civil War, and are modern America, not cowboys! , or original America. Its as fake as the Kardashians. True Americans are pre-1860, and British Isles , Irish descent. Also,(Dutch-German)

Cowboys are from Texas (an old Spanish colony that has absolutely nothing to do with the UK)

you must be seriously deluded if you think only english descendants are real Americans, about 13% of America is English descent, the rest are of other origins.

I've been avoiding this thread because this can be a very complex and volatile subject, but even though I personally am not Jewish, I come from a Jewish background (Polish Jew), and that branch of my family dates back in America to the 1850's. In Texas, of all places.

Saying that "true Americans" have to be able to trace back their American ancestry to before the civil war is one of the more ignorant things I have read in these forums. America was, and still is a nation of immigrants and refugees. If you were born here, you are just as much a "true American" as anyone whose ancestors arrived here on the Mayflower.

And conversely, anyone whose ancestors arrived here on the Mayflower are no more American than anyone with Native-American (ie. American Indian) blood coursing through their veins.

Your post smacks of racism.

Your post sounds racist. And if anyone is a "true American", it's us Natives.

Not that I'm aware of. Head over to the Politics forum and you will see anything fly...

Speaking of which, not sure this really belongs in General US, but oh well. To repeat my answer, yes, they're very well integrated, with the caveat that some traditional Jews still self-segregate.

If it does, ones from the last page about whites should be removed as well...

Remember, we "all" destroy other cultures, if we're white?

While most American Jews are descended from late 19th/early 20rh century immigrants, there were already almost 100,000 during the civil war area, whom were divided almost equally between the Union and Confederacy.

Jews even played an important role during the Revolutionary era.

Indeed. There were important Sephardic communities in Rhode Island and Charleston during colonial times. Ashkenazim didn't migrate much to the U.S. until much later however.

It should be noted that a Jewish man was a U.S. Senator in the 19th century, and later served as the CSA's Attorney General, Secretary of War, and Secretary of State.
