I'm surprised Gizmo missed this one

Jewish is not a nation; Jewish is a religion. Jewish people can or could or might come from any of the countries you named; hence have different national cultures.

And yeh, they might not be white!

Yup, you're absolutely right! Guess I just didn't read that post carefully, or decided not to respond (can't remember now). When I was in Israel, we met with a whole group of Ethiopian Jews, who were all of the black race... it was actually a little odd to see black people with yarmulkes, since that's unusual in our country - but it was very cool! However, Judaism is considered a "pseudo-race" of sorts, since we have a more cultural than religious base. But technically, no we're not an ethnic group. My ethnicity is mostly Polish and Ukrainian, or "Slavic" to be more general... I'm considered an Ashkenazi Jew, since we come from Eastern Europe, and Sephardic Jews are generally from Africa/Middle-East.

There is a huge Jewish community of people of colour (Black, mostly) in New York City. And, also a smaller one in Boston.

And in addition it has recently be determined that many Black Africans code Semitic in their DNA, and undoubtedly left someplace near or in Yemen and traveled by flat boat about 1000 years ago, I reckon.

And let's forget Sammie.

And, gizmo, although to some extent Jewish people have a culture in this country, I don't get the pseudo-race concept. Can you enlighten this dumb, inarticulate person!
