@Andrew

If you’re going to try and gain support for yourself, because you’re so feeble minded you can’t fight your own battles, at least be accurate about what I said

his stepfather is Jewish right

but also his biological father is Jewish

STONE is anglicized from STEIN (Jewish surname from Germany and Eastern European )

Bloom himself recently said he was a ‘Pikey’ from Kent. A pikey is British slang for someone from the travelling community, either an Irish traveller or a real Gypsy.

Not really. He’s just a dark haired and brown eyed English guy. He doesn’t look Spanish.
