1) A THREAD ON #JackieWalker & HER CLAIMED JEWISH STATUS.
Why is this important? Because Walker trades on her “As a Jew” status. In fact she doubles down on it. Speaking as a “Black Jew” she uses her self-declared double victim status as a force shield against accusations of AS
2) But is #JackieWalker actually Jewish? The first thing to understand is that Jews are both a religion & a “people”. You CAN be Jewish without believing in any religion, or G-d, or Moses & you aren’t disqualified if you eat bacon & never go to synagogue.
3) So, if being Jewish is not predicated by a belief in G-d, how do we define the concept of the Jewish “people”. We are a group of people who have a nationality defined by shared language, history, culture AND religion. What, then, makes someone Jewish?
