2009 Forbes 400 by ethnic origins

[Related: 2012 Forbes 400 by ethnic origins]

[Edit: Moved from Jewish section: John Abele and (per comments at Sailer's) Warren Stephens, William Gross, and John Arrillaga. Moved Joseph Mansueto and A. James Clark from Jewish section. Moved Roski, Rainwater, and Peterson. "Indian" to "South Asian"; caste designations by rec1man. Moved Barrack. Moved John Paulson to Jewish list. Moved Phillip Frost. Moved David Shaw.]

Not meant to be authoritative. Methodology: I started with JTA's Jewish list, removed the Bechtels and Meg Whitman, and added Eddie Lampert (I don't think there's any doubt the latter is at least part Jewish--see his photograph or his sister's wedding announcement).

From the still unclassified portion of the complete list, I then separated out obvious/known non-Northwestern Europeans, and presumed (for now) that those who remained are of Northwestern European ancestry. Feel free to post comments/corrections.

My initial current estimate of the ethnic breakdown:
Northwestern European 51.75%
Jewish 35.5%
Italian 3.5%
East Asian 2%
Middle Eastern 2.25%
Eastern European 1.5%
Greek 1.5%
South Asian 1.25%
Hispanic 0.5%
Black 0.25%

Great research.

Any data on how many of the NW Europeans you've listed are married to and have bred with ethnic Jews? Probably quite a lot of them.

Tony said...

it would be good to analyse this over time. i expect the Jews have increased their percentage slowly. Also would be good to break down the NW Euros into English/Scottish/German/etc. Jews are obviously very over-represented, but Anglos might have a few more in the 400.

This sounds like something a dissimulator like Whiskey/testing99 would say.

Re Pimco's Bill Gross, it's not completely clear.

He's been listed as a part of the Jew category in Wikipedia for quite some time, although it's not explicitly stated in the article.

It's not conclusive either way at this point.

n/a said...

"He's been listed as a part of the Jew category in Wikipedia"

That's likely based on nothing beyond his name (or name+occupation).

Given his appearance, birthplace, military service, and the absence of any evidence he's Jewish, I'm leaning strongly against.

I agree that his appearance and background doesn't seem Jewish.

It's true that Wiki isn't really much or enough to make a judgment.

Though it is known that Wiki is dominated by a relatively small editorial core. There is evidence of Jew and pro-Jew elements having an outsize influence upon and or manipulating Wiki and the editorial core. The core seems to know quite a bit about Jews and Jewish issues.

Richard Rainwater is Lebanese.

Edward Roski Jr sounds Slavic or Jewish.

n/a said...

Thanks. I've moved Rainwater and Roski.

Initially, it seemed at least plausible Roski was of German descent (with a name that was ultimately of Slavic origin, obviously); but, checking again, I find that Roski describes his father as Polish and "the son of a poor, immigrant family from Poland".

I cannot believe someone took the time to compile such a list by ethnicity - what a small souled creature you must be! What an utter waste of time. I agree our society expects a level of racial blindness from whites that is unnatural and absurd, but you and Salier's race obsession is as pathetic as a black man's quest for meaning on a PBS special. Get a life man.

Anonymous said...

but you and Salier's race obsession is as pathetic as a black man's quest for meaning on a PBS special.

Sebastian's analogy is a common one made by jew/judeophile dissimulators.

It's mockery and ridicule used as a verbal/persuasion tactic to insinuate that whites entertaining or holding certain ideas/beliefs are acting just like foolish Negroes. Since whites, especially racially conscious or nationalist ones, generally don’t want to be like (or at least perceived by others to be like) foolish Negroes, the aim is that whites will shy away from entertaining or holding those ideas/beliefs.

For example, you can see commenter "sabril" employing similar tactics at HBD Books.

Silver said...

Sebastian,

If this is "too much," what would a "natural" level of racial awareness (or "non-blindness") be like? Who decides?

Personally, I think race is an endlessly fascinating topic and tend to read anything about it I can. Aside from that, I think this exercise was valuable in itself. I think it's crucially important to for members of all races and ethnic groups to understand the Jewish proclivity for lying and political machination because it's in no small part thanks to Jewish lies and political machinations that millions upon millions of people find themselves living -- "existing," more like -- in unnatural, uninspiring, often dangerous environments that do a tremendously poor job of making possible human happiness -- truly it's almost as though they were calculated to inflict suffering. Understanding the mammoth Jewish over-representation among the rich and powerful contributes to a broader understanding of the Jewish role in society and history that led to the creation of such living arrangements and insists on their perpetuation today.

Anon,

I've never seen an anti-racist do that, and I'm not new to online racialism.

I haven't either.

You are so right. Noting the ethnicity of the rich and powerful is a waste of time. We should instead be making sure there aren't too many White fire fighters or Sierra Club members. That's what really matters!

"Northwestern European"?

What kook made that one up?

When did you last read "Is it good for the North-Western European"?

About as accurate as putting "David Bonderman" among them.

Many Jews would classify as "Northwestern European". You guys ever see a Shorenstein or Greenberg.

Sailor's notions of race belong to the 19th century, he is clueless.

Why don't you have any breakdown of Spain? Also it would be helpful if you gave a coutry breakdown of what you consider northwest europe as definitions vary. I'm pretty sure Bezos is a Spanish last name and that I saw his face in a High School Spanish textbook as an example of an American success.

See: "Hispanic". There is one Basque and one Mexican mestizo. For purposes of this list, Northwestern European means everyone of European ancestry who is not of Southern European or Eastern European descent. That includes British, German, Irish, Dutch, Swiss, French, and Scandinavian.

Bezos got his surname from a stepfather. As best I can make out, his biological father's surname is Jorgensen and his mother is of British and German ancestry:

Jeff Bezos

Chairman of amazon.com
Pioneering Spirit
The Bezos family can trace its American roots to Colonel Robert Hall, who at the beginning of the nineteenth century moved to San Antonio, Texas, from his home in Tennessee. Bezos's great-great grandfather, Bernhardt Vesper, acquired a 25,000-acre ranch in Cotulla in the southern part of Texas, where young Jeffrey Preston Bezos spent summers with his grandparents. The pioneering spirit seems to be part of the family bloodline, even if the new frontier lies in cyberspace. Born on 12 January 1964, when his mother, Jackie Bezos, was only seventeen years old, Jeff Bezos never knew his father. "I've never been curious about him," he ...

John Paulson isn't Jewish. He's of Norwegian ancestry.

Anonymous said...

Just by looking at Paulson he is atypical for Norway and Northern Europe in general.

According to a biography of John Paulson published recently, titled "The Greatest Trade Ever: The Behind-the-Scenes Story of How John Paulson Defied Wall Street and Made Financial History" (by Gregory Zuckerman), his family origins might be Norwegian/French on the paternal side and Jewish from Eastern Europe on the maternal side. Pages 16 & 17. The book also claims John Paulson was raised Jewish by his mother. Page 18. Note: John Paulson was born to Alfred Paulson (originally Paulsen) and Jacqueline Boklan.

Exactly. He doesn't look Norwegian or Northern European at all. He looks like your typical repulsive Jew.

Why is the wealthiest man in the world not on this (admittedly old) list?

John Paulson Norwegian? How is that repuslive ball of slime in any way related to the Norwegian people? Not only is his skin brown (atypical for both Norway and Northwestern Europe), but also none of his features are present in the Northwestern European popluation. It is obvious that he is more related to the likes of Serge Gainsbourg (kike), than to the likes of Bjorn Dahlie (Norwegian).

John Paulson Norwegian?


This is what the Wikipedia article says about him:

Early life

Paulson was born in Queens, New York, the son of Jacqueline and Alfredo Paulson, a Chief Financial Officer for Ruder Finn.[4][5] Paulson attended the Whitestone Hebrew Centre (a United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism school) in Whitestone.


Wikipedia also lists him under the category of "American Jews":

Categories: 1955 births | American billionaires | Boston Consulting Group people | Harvard Business School alumni | Hedge fund managers | Living people | New York University alumni | People from Queens | American Jews

n/a is right.

Here's 'Bezos' Wikipedia entry:

Early life and background

Bezos was born Jeffrey Preston Jorgensen[2] in Albuquerque, New Mexico, to Jacklyn Gise Jorgensen and Ted Jorgensen.[3] His maternal ancestors were settlers who lived in Texas, and over the generations had acquired a 25,000 acre (101 km2 or 39 miles2) ranch in Cotulla. Bezos' maternal grandfather was a regional director of the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission in Albuquerque. He retired early to the ranch, where Bezos spent most summers of his youth, working with his grandfather at the enormously varied tasks essential to the operation. At an early age, he displayed a striking mechanical aptitude – as a toddler, he tried dismantling his crib with a screwdriver.[4]

Bezos was born to a teenage mother in Albuquerque. Her marriage to his father lasted little more than a year. When Jeff was five, she remarried, this time to Miguel Bezos. Miguel was born in Cuba, emigrated to the United States alone at age 15, worked his way through the University of Albuquerque, and legally adopted Bezos. After the marriage, the family moved to Houston, Texas, and Miguel became an engineer for Exxon. Jeff attended River Oaks Elementary in Houston from 4th to 6th grade.

Larry Ellison's mother was Jewish, and his father was Italian-American. I believe that would make him half Jewish and half Italian and not simply Jewish, if you're trying to be accurate.
