Exodus, Jewish Slavery in Egypt a Myth

“Really, it’s a myth,” Dr. Hawass said of the story of the Exodus, as he stood at the foot of a wall built during what is called the New Kingdom.

A very interesting contention. I'm aware of this assertion, that Egyptians did not employ slaves to build the pyramids, that Jews or Hebrews never lived in Egypt, that a Jewish/Hebrew Exodus from Egypt never happened. I can certainly understand why a group of people during the times that this story emerged would want to link themselves with the famous land of pyramids. A question that remains unanswered by me, and apparently unasked by most: how is it that so many white folks are "Jewish" when that religion started among non-white Arabs, and is essentially a racist religion, one confined to lineage?
