Hey everyone, I'd love to get your opinion here.
My genes say I am 100% Askenazi Jew.
Question: Am I white?
Is this a question to level faster?
I truly dislike the whole color thing. I'm Brazilian with all my descendants from Europe- mainly Germany, Italy and some lost in Portugal, Spain, France and Austria.
When I say I am Brazilian, people label me as "not white".... lol
All about labels...
I checked "white" because that is what I think current society indicates. But there are too many complications here. The term "Jewish race" confuses because some people only see race as color and so "Jewish", which is a different term than "white" leads them to think someone of the "Jewish race" is not "white". I realize that you did not use the term race, but "white" is a term to describe race.
After all that, I will say that I think it matters less about what arbitrary color category one belongs in and more about what tribe to which one belongs. Don't get me started on the ridiculousness of the continued use of an outdated notion of race.
