Shoutout to Brown Jewish Women
Shoutout to Brown Jewish Women who receive skepticism from their bosses when they ask for the same Jewish Holidays off that their white coworkers got without question, because Jewish girls aren’t supposed to look like them. Who hear people who assume they’re goy spout anti-semitism around them. Who are told by other PoC that they’re less black/lantinx/Arab/Urban Native/Asian/Persian/Pacific Islander/Indian and somehow “white” because they’re Jewish. Who are deemed “race traitors” for being Jewish. Who have to hear elder patrons at temple call them “schvartzeh” behind their backs. Who are “not REALLY Jewish”. Who believe they’ll never be “beautiful” because they might grow up to have both a “Jewish nose” and “black lips” or “Asian eyes”. Who have their children told that they’re not really Jews because people assume that their mothers aren’t Jewish. Shout-out to Brown Jewish Women.
