Yeah, I'm a Black Jew. And Obama will be the next president. Get used to it.
To be honest, I can barely remember the high holidays and my family celebrates Christmas. But my mom's Jewish and so is her mom. So, by Jewish law, I'd have been toast in Hitler's kitchen back in the day. And when it comes to Israel, where I visited earlier this year, I'm Uzi down.
But after catching Coed magazine's Top 10 Hot Ass Hollywood Jews list of chosen hotties, I'm feeling more Jewish than ever. Not that a gentile doesn't stand a chance with these most excellent babes, but I'll take any leg up I can. And, no kidding, I didn't know Scarlett Johansson was Jewish either.
In 1990, I co-founded a magazine called URB (urb.com) in Los Angeles. URB captures an intimate view of progressive urban sounds and landscapes in print and online. Beyond my day job, I also explore the world of politics, race and culture, photography and media (new and old). pure/ROKER is designed to be a living and shared notebook of the most discussion worthy aspects. Enrichment is encouraged. Debate and disagreement unavoidable. And dissent welcomed.
