"Chartreux": So, Why Do Some People—Especially Jewish Ones—Say That Jews Aren't White?

"Chartreux" saw my tweets and others' tweets; he asked, and I answered—and this what I emailed him back—the only changes are editorial, not revisionary, changes:

Jews are considered White only because of a gentile man whom argued that since Jesus was White, he was White. The man in question was set to be deported, and he was George Shishim from Lebanon [correction: Syria]. Unfortunately, many of us joined in, in favor of Shishim ("United States v. Shishim")thus considering ourselves White. Many of us had also been passing as White and/or identifying with any White heritage that we'd had.
This gave the Anti Semites fodder to claim that we who were Ashkenazi Jews were actually Slavic and Khazar converts as opposed to really Middle Eastern Diasporans, and especially those of us in the Reform/Progressive/Liberal tradition had already set ourselves up for eventually being considered White. The Classical Reform position can be summed up in the words of my father: "Judaism is a religion and not a nationality." He was not happy that I found out that we're Jewsdespite that he denies that he even knewand he continues to try to pass as a Polish-Lithuanian-Czechoslovakian and Catholic-turned-Episcopalian-turned-completely-secular American. He would be Modern Reform were he honest with himselfand I actually recommended that to him despite that I am a Jewish Christianhis positions are far from Karaite and Rabbinically-Orthodox Jewish, let alone Christian, and I told him that Reform Judaism would fit him. Quite a few Reform Jews, by the way, still hold the Classical position.

I hope that I gave enough of a clear and thorough explanation. 

PS He is Poylisher, Litvisher, Vaysruslander, Ruslander, Ukrainisher, Slovakisher, and Ungarisher Yiddish with some Sephardish (e.g., Kroatisher) and Mizrachish Yiddish blood. In fact, his paternal grandmother (of blessed memory) is a descendant of the Kroatishe-Ungarishe Legradi mishpoche [one branch of whom were printers and publishers] (One of her matriarchs is Helena Legradi Duday, of blessed), for example.

Originally On Writerbeat: A Redacted 2005 Police Report, Depression, and An Ableist

The former two are not fair game. The latter one—a sick ableist—is—and the sick ableist in question is Donald Trump. Heidi Cruz did not wake up one day and decide to have a depressive episode that day (whether or not the depressive episode was a one-time episode or a flareup of chronic Depression). She did not decide to plan to sit 10 minutes away from traffic during a nervous breakdown, and she did not think that someone as cruel as Donald Trump would be cruel enough to use what can be a fatal mental illness to "spill the beans".

Nobody forced the aspiring First Lady Melania Trump (then model Melania Knauss) to pose nude for "GQ". Circumstances in Heidi Cruz's life, for whatever reason, did force her to have some kind of mental breakdown (regardless of whether the breakdown was a one-time depressive episode or just another flareup of Depression—flareups to which each Depression patients gets resigned in some respect, irrespective of how each of us deals with those flareups.).

Notwithstanding that Heidi Cruz intentionally sat 600 seconds from traffio of six—600 seconds in which she could have had her last breaths and ended her life—she got up and went home. Not everybody does that—in fact, some die at home—ask my great-great-granduncles Frank and Alexander Focko, as the former hung himself at his home and the latter fatally consumed cyanide in his home. 

Ask their dad, my-great-three-times grandfather Istvan Foczko (and while I'm not a mathematician, I know that for a man in his 50s with two sons whom committed suicide—and the sons being two of six sons—to not have committed suicide is statistically impossible—especially since one third of his sons also happened to be two of his seven children.).

Ask my father's paternal grandfather, whom changed his mind too late—he wanted to go home and had already jumped off of Falls River Bridge, blocking traffic with his abandoned-in-the-middle-of-the-bridge car and humiliatedly having drivers, three hunters whom tried to get him to the riverbank, and others watch as he drowned to death from not being able to hold on to a rock in the midst of Falls River currents.

In what year is Donald Trump, anyway—1905? 1913? 1935? 1964? Almost 52-111 years later, can't Donald Trump stop being childish and realize that victims of Depression (let alone Depression-affected suicide) are not stigmas (let alone suicides) in of themselves? At least relatively few—in more Westernized societies, anyway—view victims of suicide as the suicides themselves, even though many still view victims of Depression—and other mental illnesses—as stigmas. 

Donald Trump ought to go live in a shari'a-ruled or other Non-Westernized society if he continues to view people with mental illnesses as shari'a- and other Non-Western-minded people do—and even some Western societies, such as Croatia and Serbia, need to continue to work on Westernizing or even start Westernizing.

By the way, Meliana Trump's precious Slovenia still has its Westernization to implement—why doesn't Donald Trump suggest barring Slovenian immigrants whom are ableist and don't want to take care of their own?—or he could perhaps help Svenica and Ljubljana build adequate mental hospitals instead of focusing on castles.

Balkaners and R1a1a1


    
Leamington, Ontario arrived from google.ca on "The Nicole Factor: DNA" by searching for genetic mekaup of south slavs in balkan r1a1a1.
01:12:44 -- 29 minutes ago



Nope. It falls among the Indo Europeans, Khazars (from whom Levites like the Foczkos are descended), and Ashkenazi Levites (Aren't we lucky? *eye roll* Then again, G-d did bless the nations, etc.):

For example:

The approximate distribution of Y-DNA haplogroups among the Bulgarian people runs as follows:
16% E1b1b
1% G2a
3% I1
20% I2a (very common among South Slavic peoples)
1% I2b
20% J2
1% Q
18% R1a
18% R1b
1% T

Another instance:


Slovenia is in the northwestern quadrant of the Balkan Peninsula and shares borders with Austria, Croatia, Hungary, and Italy. The Slovenian language belongs to the South Slavic language family.
Y-DNA (paternal DNA) haplogroups are distributed among the Slovenians at these approximate frequencies:
R1a = 34.5% to 37.18% - appears to come from early Indo-European speakers
R1b = 15.7% to 23.5%
I2a = 22% - also common in Croatians & Bosnians
I1 = 9.5% to 10.8%
E1b1b = 3% - common in the Middle East and North Africa
J2 = 3% - from the northern Middle East
G2a = 1.5% to 2.88%
I2b = 1% to 2%
J1 = 1% - from the southern Middle East

And no; Greece, Turkey, and Italy are not Balkan or Southern Slavic--in fact, the Greeks, Turks, and Italians would be insulted by the suggestion that they are; and so would the Balkaners.

Now there is a map of the Balkans
