Propose merging the Snow-white Miriam article into this one, with a redirect. The Snow-White Miriam article covers one incident in Miriam's life, not a different subject. --Shirahadasha06:28, 4 August 2006 (UTC) 1. Merging the article in would cause it to basically dominate this one. Maybe it needs a paragraph summary and a link to the full article. The discussion there of various interpretations of the incident doesn't deserve to be cut from Wikipedia, but also doesn't seem to me to be really appropriate for this article about the character herself (it's mostly about Jewish law, with some parts that are more about Zipporah than Miriam). --Avocado11:56, 4 August 2006 (UTC)

I see no mention of the colour of Moses' wife in the Book of Numbers. Granted, Wikipedia does have a page on Black People, but it seems to me that the term has too much baggage to be considered NPOV. I don't think you can equate the (possible) racism of Miriam's day to the racist attitudes of today. It seems to me that people were more tribal then, and things weren't "black and white", as it were. Or, if you feel that the term "black" really is appropriate, then please add some text explaining why it is. 18.104.22.16801:09, 13 May 2007 (UTC)
