German are the most numerous ethnic group in the US, yet it seems like whenever you encounter an American with a German last name they are Jewish.
I wonder why that is. Does anyone know?
I know some people of German ancestry have anglicized their last names, but then again, why haven't the Jewish people? Is it that Jewish immigration has been more recent while Germans moved earlier and maybe that practice of anglicization went out of style by the time the Jewish people came over?
