Reply to "Larry Elder: Black anti-semitism"

one thing i would like to see laid to rest is the jewish monopolization of the phrase/term Semitic.

they are not the only semitic peoples.

some groups of black people are semitic..

according to "english" dictionaries semitic is a language grouping and not a racial grouping..

hebrew is one of many afro-asiatic/semtic languages..

one of the battlefields that white people wage war on is the war for ideas and this is an example of how they very strategically re-define words in their own dictionaries...

i have provided a link and definitions from merriam-websters' online dictionary..
