    Default STAT is a Jew!?

    Now, the fog is clearing, and [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], the Knicks power forward’s trip to Israel comes in light of his learning that his mother is Jewish. As [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], this means that Stoudemire is also Jewish.
    He seems to be embracing his newly discovered religious roots, as he is quickly picking up on some Hebrew, [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], and has ended each of his last two with “Shalom.”
    I'm not religious but I was born Jewish so this is kinda cool. There are many black Jews especially from Ethiopia so this is not really a shock.

    Then again....

    Anytime anyone strikes a 100M payroll, they try to string the Jewish title on you.

    They are saying that he is not Jewish, Happy Walters Amare's agent (Who is also Jewish) said "His mother says there's some Jewish blood on her side, but Amar'e is just a total student of history and had been planning a trip to Israel for awhile."

    They actually believe that black people are descendant from the supposedly cursed son of Noah...

    on his twitter account he would sometimes throw in some scripture so having the jewish background just makes his christian faith more interesting.

    Shalom!

    Never heard that from anyone I grew up with. Jews are no more a monolith than any other religion so I'm sure there are portions of any given religion that believes in some stupid ****. Hence why I don't believe in organized religion.
