I realize it is somewhat of a ethnicity like Italian, Irish, Greek, and whatever else.

But if you were to convert to Judaism, are you considered less Jewish than those who are a part of the ethnicity?

Some people even go as far to say Jewish is a race. But if it is, then would that not make Jews incredibly racist? Would that not make Israel a apartheid and racist state that shouldn't even exist in the first place?

Why are people so obsessed with Jews in the first place?

My entire life they have been regular white / Caucasian people to me. I am so used to seeing them and other white / Caucasian people of other ethnic groups on my television screen and in real life that they have been all of the same race to me.

But I noticed that their seems to be amnesty between the different ethnic groups, especially Jews.

But I looked at the rate of intermarriage, and it seems that white / Caucasian Jews and white / Caucasian people of other ethnic groups intermarry often without a problem.

So what's the deal?


To the first person who answered, your analysis does not make any sense. There are people who are anti-Irish, or anti-Italian, or anti-English, or anti-Ukrainian, or whatever, and that never meant that they were anti-white.

It just meant that they were bigots who hate certain ethnic groups for whatever irrational reason.

Semitic is also a language group. It is not a race.

Update 2:

@The Epic Troll

When did I say having blue eyes makes you white? I never did.

And all white people have an ancestor who was not white, as proven by D.N.A. tests. It is at varying degrees, but they all have it.

Anyway, I do not see what this has to do with anything.

Jews are Caucasian and are not of a different race than whoever. They even cluster with Italians and Greeks. Scientist will attest to that. Period. The end.

    I'm jewish and I am white. if someone commits a crime against a Jew because they r Jewish it's a hate crime it makes them anti semetic... if someone were to commit a crime against a Jew not knowing he/she is Jewish it's not a hate crime it's just a regular crime.


    what's your point? it's called Judaism- Jewish it's a religion NOT a race. we are white thank u very much... and if u concert your not considered any less Jewish cuz when u do convert its the same religion.. hater.

    anyone reading this if u see any anti Jew comments report it, I'd defend your religion, culture, race from hateful comments by reporting it

    The Asker and the first Answerer are hilarious! Race is not just skin color. It's a whole suite (set) of characteristics that even include the size, shape and surface traits of the teeth. Race doesn't exist in the hard sciences like Biology and Human Physiology. Race is a "social construct", a "pretend" and very imprecise way of categorizing people.

    North Africans, Middle Easterners, Europeans, east Asians and peoples of the Indian subcontinents are all considered "white". Now, grow up and deal with it:-)

    They are mixed. Just like the african americans are mixed. But I dont see people calling african americans not black. Yet it is known that africans tend to be darker than african americans

    Persons who are Jewish are overwhelmingly white, though there are plenty who come from other cultures and are Jewish by birth or conversion. Their skin color/race is separate from being Jewish.

    just because someone has white skin and blue eyes doesnt mean they are the same race as whites you idiot

    i know plenty of mixed people who look white

    if you have any ancestors who are nonwhite
