The Cherokee join the The Japanese and The Spanish as our third entire people to be profiled. Notice the trend that none of these are actually Jews. Coming soon: the Eskimos, the Australian Aborigines, the hundreds of other Native American tribes, and the lost peoples of Atlantis. Not coming soon: anything that resembles what actually happened to the lost tribes of Israel.
Of course, what separates the Cherokee from the rest of hoi polloi is that they're the ones claiming to be Jewish. The historical record, however, strongly disagrees.
