Are ethnically jewish people white?
Not people who follow the religion judaism. but people who can be deemed Semitic through a DNA test. I think they are not white, because they came from Asia. Not Europe.
Oh, and by the way, I know liberal idiots are going to bring up the out of africa theory, because i brought up racial origins. But I will address that real quick. It is wrong, because there are bones found in Europe, that are just as old as the n i g g e r bones found in Africa.

No, ethnic Jews are NOT white. They are genetically similar to Arabs.

Your comments show the absurdity of a category of 'white' people.

The jews have always been a part of the caucasoid race. However, it does not belong to the white sub-race/ethnicity. Pure whites have very pale skin. Jews have always had a olive or peach skin color. It's subtle but discernable (see photo below). Jews also have other distinctively semitic traits like a pointier and more angular face, protruding nose, and curly black hair.

White isn't really a category that means anything except a lack of melanin. There are Caucasians that are very dark and there some that are very light. The Caucasus is in Asia. Asia is a big place and it has many different groups of people living there from Negritos to East Asians to Caucasians.

Ethnicity is not about genetics.
Most jews are white skincolourwise, and some of them are racist against non-white jews.
there are no genes for being jewish, but thanks to longterm endogamy, there are a lot of chromosome-varieties that are found mainly among jews

Europeans generally are adapted to cold climates. They have tall and narrow nose bridges, thin lips, straight hair, abundant facial and body hair, short arms and legs, a rounded torso, more fat under the skin and light skin tone. Many of these cold climate adaptations are also found in other cold adapted people, such as Eskimos, Koreans, Japanese and Chinese people.
Jews and Arabs also have these cold climate adaptations even though they live in a pretty warm region. The reason they have these cold climate adaptations is because their ancestors came from a cold adapted region.
So, where did the ancestors of Jews and Arabs live before they migrated to Palestine and the Middle East? Was it northern Europe or North Asia. There is one way to find out. That is DNA. According to DNA, Arabs and Jews are close relatives of one another, and they are also close relatives of Europeans. Many Jews and Arabs belong to the same Y chromosome haplogroups as Turks, Greeks, and southern Italians, namely J1 and J2. By further investigating these haplogroups, scientists determined that they had their origins in the area between the Caspian Sea and the Black Sea. Also found in the same area are the ancestors of the Western European haplogroup R1B, to which most Brits, Spaniards and French people belong. The area that the Jews, Arabs and Western Europeans originated is called the Caucasus region. That is why even before DNA data is available, Jews, Arabs and Western Europeans were classified as Caucasians. DNA and morphology both suggest that Jews and Arabs are in fact the same people as Europeans. Scientists also determined that Europeans evolved from Central Asians who entered Europe 40,000 years ago, when Europe was in the middle of the last ice age. Conditions were cold and it got even colder 24,000 years ago when the ice age was at its maximum, so cold that some Europeans decided they had enough and they migrated to the Middle East.
When the ice age finally ended 13,000 years ago, some people from the Middle East moved back to Europe and some went to Inida and Pakistan. That is why Europeans, Indians Arabs and Jews look so similar that they are usually classified as Caucasians. Not even Hitler's men could tell a Jew apart from a German. They had to rely on clues other than outward appearance. If Jerry Seinfeld does not identify himself as a Jew, no one would have known. He has a tall and narrow nose bridge, light skin thin lips, and body hair just like a European who is adapted to cold climates. Similarly, Steve Jobs and Matt Lauer have recent ancestors from the Middle East, and yet they look just like Europeans.
