    Not all Jews are white.
    The first jews were from Africa (my tribe).
    My parents came to the UK as refugees since the WHITES wanted to kill them.
    They couldn't go to Israel.
    I'm a Jew because I'm a descendant of Sheba.
    My ancestors are ancient egyptians.
    I'm a cushite!
    I'm a semite too.
    That is why I said that I am going to assume, and I used mixed in the context that one parent is from a different race from the other and since you confirmed one race is black of Kenyan descent. I used some deduction of thinking of places that have a high amount of Jews and also the types (i.e Ashkenazi Jews, who tend to be of European lineage). I am very aware of the fact that Not all Jews are white, because Judaism is not a race, it is a religion, so that logic of all Jews being white would be ignorant.

    You've just spoken on behalf of those people as well you literally just said they love their culture being shared.
    And you agreed with that so this argument isnt valid.

    What im saying is an opinion they hold. What you're saying is that they feel theyre less superior to whites and the west. Two very different things.

    Why would you think I'm mixed? I'm fully Hadhramaut. My tribe has no place in the world today. We were "killed" off.

    Why don't you express what you think verbally.

    Yo I’m black and I’ve read a bit of this thread. If all white people in it think that the black girl is trying to beat them up for being white, all the problems associated with racism and the fact that they all exist in the first place, it may not be her full intention but it may come off that way as racism is such a sensitive topic especially to us black people.

    The fact of the matter is racism exists in society today because a small group of white people at the top of the media and societal food chain have used their power to impose their racist views which ultimately cause black people to feel a certain way and discuss racism with white people according to how they feel.

    For me it’s not an opportunity to pounce on the majority of white people who aren’t racist because of history and white influence in the media today and general displays of racism.

    It’s just the actions of a few who leave the greatest impact on the oppressed if all of that makes sense and isn’t complete bs to you lot.

    Yes I agreed with the statement and I gave a reason why...go watch any documentary where a white person travels to Africa it's clear that the locals treat the white person like a king because white people and people from the west are seen to symbolize wealth, intelligence etc bro this isn't even from my perspective it's facts. Exactly so since they feel less superior a superior person appreciating their culture is obviously going to be a blessing to them and that is where the problem lies for me.

    He/she's probably laughing at the arguments people have to make on this thread, which even I find entertaining, almost surreal to see..

    Simple. What made you mention that you're Black and Jewish? , by the way it was interpreted , it would have meant that you made Jewish to be an ethnic group, as many people in the US would do, and when people say that, based on deduction it would have possibly meant, as we live in a country where you do not see many black Jewish people, it would give off the implication that you are of mixed race. As I mentioned before, I assumed that you were mixed.

    How am I dumb?

    I almost always get 100% in Maths tests. I'm the top performer in my year group for over 6 subjects. I'm predicted 9s and 8s and I have around 17 schools offering or offered to me a full bursary/scholarship.

    I'm just an opinionated black woman, I get that you want to silence me.
    So you're what, 12? 13? I guess that explains a lot of your answers.

    If you want to boast about being smart come back when you have some of the best universities emailing you offering to give you fully funded PhDs...

    I would quote your posts one by one and break down all the ways in which your being a racist idiot, but tbh I just don't think it's worth my time as I doubt you'd understand.

    I can't be racist.
    I'm black.
    I've not discriminated against any race nor do I believe my race is superior.

    But as I said before, if white people are growing dreads as a fashion statement or to look cool, that is where I draw the line. Dreads have been used as a way of black people being discriminated for so long and for someone to wear them because "its trendy" doesn't run. People are literally being denied jobs because of what grows out of their scalp so using it for fashion isn't cool.
    Then ***** and moan at the people denying someone a job for their hairstyle! Why give a flying **** what someone personally thinks looks cool, whatever colour their skin is? If anything, be grateful, because those white people with dreads aren't going to go denying someone a job based on their hair colour!

    Just let the past die, otherwise discrimination is never going to end.

    So I guessed the age right then? Explains a lot. And if you seriously think black people can't be racist you need to have a dictionary thrown at you!

    You can be racist regardless of race - just omit everything apart from the last statement, and you're good to go...

    DISCRIMINATION and RACISM is happening RIGHT NOW across the world to black people.
    HEARD OF APPLEBEE'S?

    I won't let the past end till all white people can say fully that THEY ARE NOT SUPERIOR TO ANY OTHER RACE.

    You can't be racist if you're not white!

    The definition of racism comes in two parts

    You must discriminate based on race (which white people do as they have positions of power)
    You must also believe your race is superior (which white people do believe as there are over 45 white supremacist groups operating in America with over 10 million supporters.

    But by denying white people a hairstyle they find cool, all your doing is reinforcing the idea that it's ok to treat someone differently because of the colour of their skin... how exactly do you think this is going to help?
