My main motive to write is not to join some club but rather to say things that hardly anyone says that need to be said by someone, as here on race.
- Americans are obsessed with skin color.
Their non-Aryans have taken pride in the collective term Black, but lately, it doesn’t feel like home to the Natives, Chinese, and White Jews. I like better the term: Global Majority People. Different from Caucasians.
- The Hebrew Bible sees races in languages/lands/nations.
It must be stressed that Judaism always was open to accepting converts from almost any land, so it taught against supremacy from Adam onward. It must be noted that White Jews have disproportionally led anti-racism.
- Europa’s Nazis found race in (fake) biology and hereditary laws.
Too many Jews among one’s ancestors and one was evil beyond remedy.
- Muslims define race in terms of religion.
Their extremists are placated when lesser non-Muslims convert to Islam.
What a mess.
They may each be right a little when you consider my below race concept.
An Alternative Definition of Race
When you research it, biologically, all humans alive today can reproduce with each other and so form one biological race, homo sapiens sapiens.
What’s commonly called race is actually culture. Culture has these aspects:
- Specific languages and dialects,
- Joint history, festivals, pride, and suffering,
- Specific customs, values, and convictions,
- Ways to think with special awareness, and of course
- A cultural heritage (music, literature, diets, etc.).
And racism and genocide thus try to erase what’s special about a group.
When China tries to eradicate the Tibetans and the Uyghurs, they try to eliminate their cultures. To kill off people is not always the central aim in a genocide. Yes, sometimes, genocide has this biological aspect. Raping and impregnating women and forced sterilizations can be part of this aspect.
To denigrate and enslave can also be part of racism, as we saw in the American slave trade and in the camps for Uyghurs. The latter is harder to tell because all 1.3 billion citizens of China are as slaves to the state.
A present or lacking biological component of racism is often overlooked. If your four Jewish grandparents converted to Christianity, Nazi would still kill you. But, Jews telling ISIS that they want to convert to Islam might live. Genocidal rape beliefs that babies are only womb-incubated male sperm.

So, are Jews a race? Yes, with a very distinct culture and an extensive religion at its core. Are they targeted by racism? Surely. But it’s different from other racisms, so don’t forget to call it also antisemitism. And yes, there are White, Black, Chinese, Arab Jews. Just like Lesbian women get a double portion of sexism, Black Jews get a double portion of racism.
Other oppressed groups often don’t recognize Jews as oppressed. That’s because the former often are underprivileged, and so many Jews seem overprivileged. Yet, most Jews are poor and working for a living. But, the rich ones confirm the stereotype and make you overlook the majority. But also, the ‘successful’ Jews (and Chinese) in their diaspora(s) often work harder than everyone else, not because they’re privileged but because they’re terrified, fighting for survival. And a major stereotype about Jews is that they are the oppressors, so it’s easy to blame them. Yet, they are kidnapped by the real rich to do their biddings. And, it’s White racism that portrays Israeli Jews as all-White, while most Israeli Jews have Arab roots.
Racists are right that they want to feel proud and safe. We Whites should offer them just that for this tiny price, to feel uncomfortable every second of the rest of their lives. Instead of guilty and terrified, that’s a bargain!
Your attitude? Never forget that someone is a Jew, Black, Gay, etc., and at the same time, always forget that someone is a Jew, Black, Gay, etc.
Some Blacks can pass as Whites, Jews as Gentiles, Gays as Straights. Those who can’t pass may get hit more, wishing to be invisible. Yet, those who can pass aren’t necessarily less stressed or suffering! It’s not that simple. Because when you are in hiding, you don’t practice your pride, and you may end up more vulnerable to seeing abuse of others and to self-hatred!
