Why is there such as lack of Jews/Jewish culture in videogames?

They're both Jews genetically and historically as I've already proven


And now you're lying. Again, in case you didn't get it the first time, Sephardic Jews are ethnically divergent to the Ashkenaziim. They come from different places, different races. One is White, one is Middle Eastern. Only one is the original. If they were the same, Israeli Ashkenazi wouldn't be racist toward them.


An ethnoreligious group (or ethno-religious group) is an ethnic group of people whose members are also unified by a common religious background


Converts to Judaism aren't the same race. That wiki definition refers to one ethnic group sharing one religion, not many ethnic groups united by one.


No you haven't.


You're the fake Jew, my friend. Real Jews have reason and logic. You're emotional and obfuscating. I'll start linking to the race wars between Ashkenazi and Sephardim if you really wish to continue lying about them being the same ethnicity.

^ Oh come come now bb, it's an ultra-sensitive insult wrapped in a complimentary joke.


I work in the real world. It's 100% true.

Oh my...


1) Please use paragraphs to separate that rather lengthy post.

2) That is hardly my entire book collection. I live in an apartment, so those are merely the texts that I care to have in my dwelling. In my storage unit, I have a rather large collection of African American and African literature.

3) One of my aunts teaches at Xavier and graduated from West Point. One of my uncles is responsible for pioneering the mahogany line from Hallmark. Your family has its achievements, and my family has their own.

4) I also attend university and have a 3.9GPA. I am an English M.A. student (composition with an emphasis on literature). I am member of the Golden Key Honour Society, which only includes the top 15% of the nation.

With that said, I can understand and even sympathize with how my words may have triggered a number of emotional, maudlin stimuli based upon your adolescent difficulties. Being the child of a father from Africa (my mother is a Black American), I grew up in a very different environment than most other Black Americans. I had my fair share of harassment because I was raised to speak standard English. I was not permitted to take part in most elements of the Black youth pop culture of my generation (sagging pants, gangster rap, heavy use of slang). I was frequently referred to as oreo and other derogatory terms meant to diminish my blackness.

It was not my intent to deny you your blackness, as others have done to me, but when you come in to defend the ignorant, while calling me ignorant, you do make yourself a target. Especially when you ironically chose to claim that I must have never seen a Black woman in my life. Rather presumptive and foolish as a statement (a mistake I too was guilty of). Still, out of sympathy I wish to withdraw from any further vitriolic exchanges. I can respect that you are truly a young Black man seeking better himself. There are enough enemies who will hurl the ugly term our way. We needn't pull one another down in the process.

Best of luck in your studies




















....and Fran still isn't Black.

http://www.khazaria.com/genetics/abstracts.html

Advanced genetic testing, including Y-DNA and mtDNA haplotyping, of modern Jewish communities around the world, has helped to determine which of the communities are likely to descend from the Israelites and which are not, as well as to establish the degrees of separation between the groups. Important studies archived here include the University College London study of 2002, Ariella Oppenheim's study of 2001, Ariella Oppenheim's study of 2000, Michael Hammer's study of 2000, Doron Behar's study of 2008, Steven Bray's study of 2010, and others.

Key findings:
The main ethnic element of Ashkenazim (German and Eastern European Jews), Sephardim (Spanish and Portuguese Jews), Mizrakhim (Middle Eastern Jews), Juhurim (Mountain Jews of the Caucasus), Italqim (Italian Jews), and most other modern Jewish populations of the world is Israelite. The Israelite haplotypes fall into Y-DNA haplogroups J and E.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jewish_diaspora

The Jewish diaspora was the historical exile of Jews from the region of the Kingdom of Judah and Roman Judaea, as well as the later emigration from wider Eretz Israel.

During the Middle Ages, the Jews had divided into distinct regional groups which today are generally addressed according to three primary geographical groupings: the Ashkenazi Jews who settled in Northern and Eastern Europe, the Sephardi Jews who settled in Iberia and later North Africa, and the Mizrahi Jews who remained in the Babylon after the destruction of the First Temple.

One is White, one is Middle Eastern. Only one is the original.

And Sephardic Jews are not Middle Eastern. They are Spanish and Portuguese. You have no idea what the **** you're talking about.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sephardi_Jews

Sephardi Jews is a general term referring to the descendants of Spanish and Portuguese Jews who lived or live in the Iberian Peninsula.

I'll start linking to the race wars between Ashkenazi and Sephardim if you really wish to continue lying about them being the same ethnicity.

@Nintendological

Then list of agree to disgree about Fran's visual imagery. I say she is Black and you say she isn't, because after all it is our opinions. I don't know, if we were face to face, we would be best friends, because I have debates with all of my friends about our culture and ethnicity.

What I love about this topic is people arguing points as if they actually know what they're talking about, when in reality they're just posting comments from the different websites they have multiple windows open to. I'm amazed this has gone on for so long.
