This is dumb. I’m an atheist, and I still agree w/ B’rakha- Jewish is an ethnicity as well as a religion and oppression against people of Jewish ethnicity is a shitty, ongoing thing. I don’t owe assholes any love, and I don’t answer to any sort of deity.
Well the question of whether Jewish is a religion, or a race or a culture is highly debatable in many people’s eyes. I don’t see it that way. Judaism is not a race just like Italian is not a race.
Judaism is an /ethnicity/. Ethnicity isn’t race. Also if you aren’t Jewish you don’t get to say what ‘Jewish’ is. You don’t get to define someone else lmao. ‘Tribe’ is an accurate term as well.
Italian is a nationality. That’s totally different.
Yeah…. it’s been shown time and time again that Judaism is an ethnicity, not just a religion. Those people that are debating this are just woefully uneducated on the subject.
But, Italian is an ethnicity. It’s also a nationality though. I mean, your ethnicity could be Welsh, but your nationality could be Italian. That’s the difference between ethnicity and nationality. The way I learned it (and please correct me if I’m wrong) is that ethnicity is your cultural or biological background, whereas nationality is where you were born. So, my mother is ethnically a Lithuanian-Belarusian Jew, but she was born in the US so her nationality is American.
