As I’ve previously pointed out, there is a lot of miscounting of Jews.
Most estimates of Jews in the United States is based simply on people’s response to polls such as the General Social Survey. I checked the GSS again, and for the years 2000-2010, 2% of respondents said Jewish in response to the question “In what religion were you raised?”
However, the way anti-Semites count Jews, the number is much larger than that, because they use a one-drop rule, and someone who wasn’t raised Jewish still gets classified as Jewish because they have a parent or a grandparent or even a great-grandparent who was raised Jewish.
Although the percent of people who respond “Jewish” in surveys like the GSS is decreasing, the percent of people who are Jewish based on a one-drop rule is increasing.
If you follow the link above, you will see that I previously explained that others have estimated that there are 10 million people in the United States who qualify for Aliyah to Israel, and that would be 3.33% of the population or 5% of the white population. And this is my guess, but probably 4% of the population and 6% of the white population would be classified as Jewish under the anti-Semitic one-drop classification. That’s double the number of people who self-identify as being raised Jewish.
The percent of Jews increase dramatically if you only look at people with college degrees. Based on the same 2000-2010 GSS years, 4.7% of people with at least a college degree are Jewish, and 7% of people with graduate degrees are Jewish.
If one assumes that part-Jews who do not self-identify as Jewish attend college at the same rate as self-identified Jews (and I think that’s a reasonable assumption), then maybe 9.5% of college graduates are Jewish using the broader definition. And because a college degree is a prerequisite to work in any notable profession, that’s an important number. So if some profession is one-third Jewish based on the way that anti-Semites count Jews, then this might seem like a large percentage compared to the 2% of the population who self-identify as Jewish, but it’s not such a big number at all compared to the 9.5% of college graduates who are Jewish under a one-drop rule.
Also, it’s completely unrealistic to think that those 9.5% of college graduates who are Jewish will be perfectly evenly represented in all professions. No, it’s more realistic that Jews will like some professions and industries more than others, and that Jews will be over-represented in some professions and under-represented in others. It’s no more a black conspiracy that there are a lot of black NBA players than it is a Jewish conspiracy that there are a lot of Jewish stand-up comics.
One also needs to factor in that Jews are not evenly geographically distributed. There are a lot of Jews in New York and not so many in Texas. Thus in industries based in Texas, such as the oil and gas industry, you shouldn’t expect to find a lot of Jews. But in industries based in New York, such as finance, law, media and fashion, you would naturally expect a much higher percentage of the people to be Jews.
It’s not a conspiracy, it’s just numbers plus HBD. If you anti-Semitic white gentiles want to have the career success of Jews, then you should get good grades in school, and go to the most prestigious college and graduate school you can get into. This is EXACTLY the advice I give all the time on my blog. You sound like the NAACP, which would rather sue the city of New York because not enough blacks get admitted to Stuyvesant, than tell black parents that they should make their kids study for the test.
