Define my "Nationality"!
    #4719233 - 09/27/05 12:13 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

That's right, I'm asking to be labeled. The racism thread degraded quickly, but I was intrigued by Pris#1's post.

My primary heritage is Russian and Polish. I am agnostic. My parents are agnostic. Their parents were Jewish, as were their parents from Russia and Poland.

So.. what "race" does that make me? Serious non-ignorant answers only, please. I'll be back to see what you all think in a few hours.

You're a half-polish half-russian Agnostic. The Jew part doesn't count anymore unless you still feel that you are culturally Jewish.

Both my parents came from Russia, cultural Jews with no real religion. I simply consider myself American, and more than that I just consider myself a New Yorker. nationality shmationality.

What is with Jewish being called a nationality? It's a religion. There is no country named Jew. How can one be Jewish if it is not their religion? This has always bothered me.

No idea, but I hope you realize I didn't call it a nationality.

That's exactly my point. That really sums up how I feel.

Because somewhere down the line, a distant relative practiced a certain religion and lent me their name, people on the street assume that I practice a religion and have certain traits. Having no nationality other than "white" doesn't bother me- you can call me a honky-ass cracker all day long and I won't care. Calling me a Kyke on the other hand is not only an ignorant racial slur, but not even applicable.

I too consider myself American and nothing more (also a New Yorker). I guess I don't understand why people can't leave it at that.

How is kyke any more of an ignorant "racial" slur than honky-ass cracker?

It isn't, but I AM caucasian, and I'm not a Jew. If you're going to make a comment, at least make it applicable.

It's like calling a black person a Wasp. It's still an ignorant, hate-filled comment, but it doesn't make any sense.

I always tell people I'm American. This is where I was born, this is my nationality.

I think people can't leave it at that, because they want to feel like they are part of something else(commonly Italian, Mexican, or African). Children are no longer taught to be proud to be an American. It is fashionable to dislike this country.

I posted this yesterday too.

When Jews were immigrating to america many couldn't read or write so when they would have to sign their name they drew a kikel (yiddish for circle).

The derogatory term kike later evolved from this.

No. Cohen is one of the most common "Jewish" last names.
