    Also, change that ‘RACE RELATED DISCUSSION’ on the left

    Race is a fake term (white/yellow/black/brown) wrongly used in te early 20th century and before that,
    whereas Ethnicity is a scientific term proven by genes and dna.

    Change her profile to ‘Ethnicity: Sephardi Jewish’.

    As you already have in other Sephardi/Mizrahi profiles.

    Interestingly her character in Paul Haggis’ Third Person (2013) was a Romanian Gypsy woman (at least in the Italian dubbed version) who was Adrian Brody’s character love interest.

    There’s a very funny scene where she is called “zingara” (gypsy) by Riccardo Scamarcio who played a bartender, AS Roma fan, and as reaction she mocked him as “Totti dei poveri” (poor man’s Totti). Totti (football player) is like the 8th King of Rome.

    Highlight of a dull movie.

    Moroccan Jews are both Mizrahi Jewish and Sephardic Jewish.

    What does “Moroccan Jewish” mean?

    • andrew says:

      likely Sephardi: “Atias’ grandparents left Morocco in the 1950s and set out for the newly formed Israel. The family eventually settled in the northern city of Haifa (..) Moran grew up listening to biblical stories told by her grandfather, a rabbi”


    • Yeravam says:

      It means she’s an ethnic Jew whose family settled in Morocco at some point (probably after the Inquisition).
