Has anyone ever heard of a black Jew? Is it even possible under the craziest circumstances?

What? Is this a real question or am I setting myself up for something?

I'm sorry, but is this question real? Can anyone be that ignorant?

If you're truly interested, why are you posting? Tryo educating yourself. There's this big vast thing out there called the "internet". To say I'm appalled at this foolishness would be an understatement.

Infact there's some speculation that the original Jews, the Jewish race, were indeed black. Have you ever seen one of them Christian specials that are sending Jews back to isreal? Well they are sending black Jews aswell

Weird question. What is a Jew?

1. Someone born into Jewish family, regardless of religious views
2. Someone who converted into Judaism

Which Jew are you talking about?

But when we say Jew, people probably mean cultural Jews. Jew is a race as well as a part of the religion of Judaism.
