    I think there reason for her getting elected was more because of her Labour tag.
    Well yes. It was 1997, no-one wanted five more years of John Major, EU infighting and scandals. Not even the tory party.

    According to the Wikipedia link posted earlier, there has been a Black Jewish community in Ethiopia for centuries. So they have inherited it too. Of course it's questionable if there are actually any significant genetic links between them and european and middle eastern jews. But the point is they have both been established Jewish communities for a long time. Israel recognises them as Jews so they are allowed to live in Israel.

    there's nuff in america but they have quite controversial views about what constitutes being a jew and do not class themselves as being part of the same community as white jews with names like goldberg etc.

    black hebrewites believe that they are the real jews and that today's white jews are frauds etc.

    Back in the early 1990s when there was civil war and famine going on in Ethiopia, there was a big news splash around the rescue of Jews from that country - http://www.britannica.com/bps/additi...Ethiopian-Jews

    http://www.nzherald.co.nz/judaism/ne...0455287&pnum=1 is another article on it.

    What? the stereotypical Jew is seen as intelligent and successful. The stereotypical Black is seen as cool and whatever. Mix them up and you have an intelligent, cool and successful guy :awesome:

    I wouldn't mind being intelligent cool and successful :p: Although I would mind racism, slavery, pogroms, prosecution and holocausts
