brain sizes: Einstein's and women's

The last thing in the world that an Israelite like Moses would, or COULD, do is marry a nigger, just as it's the last thing in the world that a respectable White man like Thomas Jefferson would ever have done.

So it's interesting how, and why, this passage has been so severely misinterpreted and misrepresented.

  (KJV+)  And Miriam4813 and Aaron175 spoke1696 against Moses4872 because5921, 182 of the Ethiopian3571 woman802 whom834 he had married:3947 for3588 he had married3947 an Ethiopian3571 woman.802 

Most modern translators use "Cushite woman" rather than "Ethiopian woman".  Why?  Because the Holy Bible accounts that there were two different tribes called "Cushi".  One tribe of Cushi were descendants of Ham, and the other tribe were descendants of Jacob [read: they were Israelites].  The Cushi who were descendants of Ham lived in the area now known as Ethiopia, but the Cushi who was a descendant of Jacob lived in Judaea.

Under Israelite law, God would never have given an Israelite like Moses permission to marry a nigger.  Such a radical departure from Israelite law would have required far more than 16 paragraphs in Numbers 12.  The following is just one example of how Moses treated non-Israelites:
  Num 31:15 And Moses said unto them, Have ye saved all the women alive? 

  Num 31:16 Behold, these caused the children of Israel, through the counsel of Balaam, to commit trespass against Jehovah in the matter of Peor, and so the plague was among the congregation of Jehovah. 

  Num 31:17 Now therefore kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman that hath known man by lying with him. 


Can you even imagine what a hypocrite Moses would be if he wiped out all the Midianites after marrying a nigger?
