Now that the Biden Administration is reviving the Obama Administration’s proposal to concoct a Middle Eastern and North African racial identity on government forms, I’ve finally found an article that asks what strikes me as the central question: Are Jews MENAs?
There are a few questions revolving around the MENA proposal that I haven’t seen anybody else ask: how many Jews would stop declaring themselves on the Census as white and pick MENA instead? And what are the political, social, and cultural implications of that?
I have no idea what the answers to those questions are, but almost nobody else seems interested in asking them, which is stupid.https://www.unz.com/isteve/would-a-middle-eastern-and-north-african-census-category-be-good-for-the-jews/
Historically, the Jews have preferred the flexibility of not being definitively in one category or another because proper definitions sabotage their special pleading, which is their ecological niche (AKA double standards, Talmudry, hypocrisy, moral particularism, chutzpah). Therefore the MENA category is bad for the Jews, therefore I predict it won’t happen.
If there is special privileges and gifts for being identified as such, then maggotry will want it, and still pose “white” or other on the census for usual reasons if they so wish.
