I'm from Tunisia in North Africa, I like to identify myself as Mediterranean cause we don't fit in the African, Arabic, Islamic, or any other culture by itself, the key is in the mixture.
Also Jew is not a race it's a religious belief so of course their hair differs based on the person's origin. One of my classmates is Jewish and he is of white German origins (by the way, he had a head full of beautiful reddish/blondish curls then for some reason he got a haircut and it looks as if he has straight hair now.
We also have a Jewish Tunisian community and their hair is like all the other Tunisians' hair mostly curly, only a few have straight hair...

"Race" is a social construct used to organize people and resources. "Race" references phenotype (skin color, facial features, hair texture). People and resources are valued and organized according to notions of "race".

People of various "races" can be Jews. For example, I know "Black" Jews in Canada, and there have been media reports of "White" Jews in Israel discriminating against Ethiopian/"Black" Jews.

Jews as most certainly NOT a race. =\ Seriously. And no, I am not near what you listed.
im neither! ppl ask me if im mixed (mostly cuz of my grn eyes). im simply happy to be me!!!
i have 3b hair and am mixed. my momīs german and my dadīs Jamaican.
I rarely see white people with 3b hair. i donīt know why. I saw many white people with 3b on here though .
so I guess everybody can have 3b hair. not only mixed
um...sort of I'm a Dutch and Polish 3b... though, my fathers Polish family is all Jewish...

Interesting observation, and yes, some ethnicities tend to have curlier hair, etc. BUT we're all mixed these days... I doubt there are many people left that 101% purely anything... I'm thinking the curly hair can pop up from anywhere in your ethnic background....

I'm of mostly Irish decent with just the tinest bit of English, German and Native American. I mean very tiny but I've often been asked if I am Jewish, Italian and even Arabic. I'm not sure I can see those in me but I guess it's possible.
We are all mixed because there has never been any such thing as a "pure" race. It's not just a condition of modernity, there have always been groups of people traveling and mixing up genes. Race is a social construct.

My ancestors left of Africa 50,000 years ago. They walked through the Middle East, and ended up in Western Europe by 30,000 years ago. I know this because my mom had her DNA analyzed through a program with National Geographic. In the 1600s they took a boat from France to America.

And I am 3b.

That is super cool, getting your DNA tested! I agree. We are all so mixed. My husband gets upset when someone asks me 'what nationality' I am! He gets peeved and tells the person asking, "she's American."

A person can certain be a Jew though and not adhere to Judaism.

But it certainly is a fact that Jews can belong to ANY race. But it's not uncommon to hear the phrase.. "The Jewish race"..even among Jews.

There isn't one hair type that is inherent to Jews though dark curly hair used to be something associated with Jews as a typical trait until more European Jewry came to the forefront.

Yeah, the DNA project is really interesting...I think it's called Genographic and anybody can go to their website and do it, if you want to pay $100! I'd like to do my dad's side too, but haven't forked out the dough.

My point with explaining my history for the past 50,000 years (haha) is to ask at what point did my ancestors stop being "black" and become "white"? I think this shows how the categories of race are not biologically definable, which isn't to say that race and ethnicity aren't culturally and socially important, which has had both good and bad consequences!
I'm Irish and although I share hair colour with alot of my relatives (red hair), Only my Granny & I have the curls x

I wouldn't say all 3b girls are mixed.
However, I'm biracial and I've noticed most (if not all) of my biracial friends have 3b/c hair too.
