i am black!

in my groups class, one of the guys, rayshawn, tried to tell me that because i was jewish, i was black, citing the middle east and israel as part of africa.

well i, ofcourse, denied this, saying that i am ashkenazi and therefore of european descent, talked about priviledge, blah blah blah

but according to yahoo news:

"Ashkenazi Jews are a group with mainly central and eastern European ancestry. Ultimately, though, they can be traced back to Jews who migrated from Israel to Italy in the first and second centuries, Behar said. Eventually this group moved to Eastern Europe in the 12th and 13th centuries and expanded greatly, reaching about 10 million just before World War II, he said."

and since my mama's jewish, and her mama was jewish, and her mama was jewish and i also know for sure that her mama was jewish and i cant really believe that anyone would CHOOSE to be jewish (even though i know a number of americans who have)....

Song of the day:rayshawns song (i dont know the title)-BDP

thanks rayshawn. you're right,
i really am black!!
