They appear "white" to most people because most people are deceived by the world. That's why Jews pretend to be white as they try to convince real white people to abandon their preservation & self-interests, then they switch back to being Jewish
True race is not based on the appearance of the complexion of skin. Rather, it's genetic. The phenotype is largely determined by the genotype. That's why a German Jew doesn't look like a real ethnic German. Same applies to all ethnicities in the Caucasian race. A Jew is quite obvious, if you're awake to what they are... An awake person can usually identify a Jew.
Many Jews do not appear white. One branch of Jews, the Ashkenazim, appears white. Other branches do not.
Because of this, one of the social problems occurring in Israel is tensions between so-called White Jews and Black Jews. (I hope we will not be accused of anti-semitism for suggesting that there are any problems in Israel.
I wonder if Bas Congo V can identify the race of this person:
Here's a clue. This is a portrait of Venerable Francis Liebermann, the second founder of the Spiritan order of missionaries of which Archbishop Lefebvre was a member.
Fr. Liebermann was born to a Jewish family. He was even the son of a Rabbi. But he ceased to be Jewish when he was baptized at the age of 24. He was also disowned by his father.
This is one of the main reasons that it does not make sense to consider Jews a race. In virtually any other context, people have no choice concerning what race they are. But some people who are not Jews become Jews and other people, who are Jews, stop being Jews by accepting Christ.
Judaism is a false religion of which one of the main tenets is the rejection of Christ. This is what is wrong with it, not some supposed defect of Jewish blood or peculiarity of their appearance.
