The worst part is that people believe me.
I’m Jewish. I pretend I’m NOT white.
You are not white. How can you pretend to be something you are (i.e. NOT white)? You might pass for “white” under certain circumstances, which can be said of many people of different races, but I would be careful of deceiving yourself. Jews have undergone numerous annihilation attempts by different societies and cultures from Biblical times to present day. Being that there is a spectrum of skin color within the Jewish race (Ashkenazi, Sephardim, etc), I am fully aware that some Jews may pass for “White.” However, when the dominant culture feels you are a threat, I wonder how quickly your “white” status will change. Ever heard of “all white” country clubs or even the discriminatory practices from various institutions throughout the United States? How many of them would knowingly let a Jew into their ranks?
Your statement “I pretend I’m NOT white” seems to assume that you think you ARE white and are pretending not to be. I’ve seen many Jewish people refer to themselves as white, and I keep quiet and chuckle a bit. Whiteness is a social construct meant to conquer and divide. Looking “white” is a very thin veil to hide behind and easily taken away. You’re a Jew, be a Jew and proud of it. Don’t ever refer to yourself as white.
WHITE IS NOT A RACE ITS A COLOR
HEY THATS WHAT A LOT OF LIGHT SKIN BLACKS DO , PRETEND THEY ARE OF ANOTHER RACE, JUST TO BLEND IN , SMDH A SHAME ISNT IT
