  •  I'm half jewish, but I "don't look jewish" and (5+ / 0-)

    don't have a typically jewish first or last name.  You would not believe the horrible shit people have said in my presence, not knowing that I am half jewish.

      I was picked out of my Hebrew class as what the Germans claimed Aryans looked like. Very weird, but not at all hostile.

      We knew that Aryan-looking Jews had joined Hitler's SS so that they could warn Jews when the SS was coming. Similarly, there had been a Jewish Catholic bishop in Toledo, Spain in the 1500s who let hidden Jews know when the Inquisition was coming.

      Don't let them tell you that nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition.

      Of course, real ethnic Aryans look North Indian. Gypsies/Roma, for example, whom the Nazis also tried to exterminate.

      America—We built that!
