Jamie was clearly written as a white Jew from Manhattan -- and my original post DOES say they are black Jews. But the odds of them singing the "Schmuel Song" about a European Jewish shtetl -- or singing Shiksa Goddess, are likely quite low. If you think any Jew would sing those songs -- and I know many Sephardic and a few Black Jews, then we disagree. But let's at least have that discussion rather than calling me a racist.
Further, I am not saying it should only be white actors. I'm not. I'm saying there is a REASON it usually is -- something the author totally omits from her post.
