Oy Vey! Amar’e Stoudemire Goes On The Hunt For His Jewish Roots

Amare Stoudemire is Jewish

Oye Vey! Looks like the Jewish community might have a new Hebro. Amar’e Stoudemire says he MIGHT have some Jewish blood in him and he’s going to look for it.

TMZ is reporting that although he doesn’t have any evidence to confirm it, Amar’e Stoudemire thinks he’s 1/1700th a little Jewish. His agent even confirmed that the hunt for Manischewitz has only just begun.

His agent told TMZ, “I know there are some reports that he is Jewish, but he is not. He thinks there may be some Jewish blood on his mother’s side and he is researching it.”

Coincidentally, he just signed a 100 million dollar contract with the NY Knicks and is currently trekking through Israel to learn Hebrew and “studying the religions there.”

Have things gotten so bad that a black man would rather hunt for a drop of Jew, than claim a black bloodline? Hopefully his hunt for heritage will reveal some things he can be proud of. Ain’t that some shmutz.

    Pitiful. The lack of education about self and your people (Africans) leads to making stupid mistakes.

    Ok so you find out you have some Jewish in you then what. Do you expect them to except you Niga Please!!

    He didn’t say anything denouncing his blackness, so I don’t see anything malicious. These days, it’s just cool to be mixed so everyone is throwing around “I’m a little bit of this, a little bit of that” no matter how little you have. He’s going along with that.

    You know even though his reason for embarking on this search is a little superficial..i think the underlying issue is that amare is searching for a better understanding of himself and no matter how silly it seems, we should respect the man for having no fear and really embracing learning and accepting another culture and religion.

  • LOLA

    wtv, his life. My question is why is his agent tell the world this???

  • Glok.... Good Golly Miss Molly!

  • Somali Ninga

    LOL @ AAs thinking that they’re Israelites😆 Maybe the Ethiopians but not west Africans😆

  • I-See-See

    Hopefully Amar’e is referring to the black blood in him because is black people are the orginal hebrews and all you have to do is research your African history. New York will definitely make you realize you are an Isrealite/God. A lot of my NGE and Hebrew Isrealite friends are from NY

    Sorry to disappoint you but the Real Israelites are Ethios, who are CU$HITIC not west African.Ethios were Levites which was the same tribe as Moses(peace be upon him) and his wife.😆

    NO, I KNOW WHAT AND WHO IM TALKING ABOUT,.. DO I HAVE TO FURTHER SHOW AND PROVE !

  • I-See-See

    @Somali You need to do some research most blacks are descendants of the Isrealites. My mom is Eritean and Ethopian descent and so are a lot of other black Americans. Not all blacks are descendants from West Africans. Besides if most of us aren’t Isrealites we are still descendants of West Africans which have deep roots and were founders of some of the first universities!

    I’m happy that he’s doing the “knowledge tourism” thing…but you can become a Jew or a Muslim or a Christian anytime you wish by converting.

    Prophet Jacob said “Are ye not as the children of Ethiopia unto me, O children of Israel?” (Amos 9:7)

    “…And he arose and went: and behold, a man of ETHIOPIA an eunuch of great authority… who had come to Jerusalem for to WORSHIP.” 8:27

    Historian JA Rogers state “For the Romans to have considered them Ethiopians is a clear indication of their color, because the Ethiopians are a known black people”

    @Glok! O wow…thanks hun. Thats a big compliment

  • johnnie bravo

    @Stoney Its obvious you have been at the place where amare is now, so your take on things is definitely more thought provoked than others responses i see. This is about self discovery. He doesnt need anyone else to agree with what he is doing. There is absolutely nothing wrong about gaining knowledge and those of you who try to find fault in that are sadly deluded. There was a time when this sort of information was taught in school…or at least encouraged…but the deviant and mislead minds of the youth today think knowledge is how much celebrity and pop culture inuendo they have ingested. Judaism is an ancient religion and it would behoove us all to acquire some information on a religion that not only was active in biblical times but is as much a relevant part of our lives today as it was then.

    =====================================
    Exactly I said West Africa has many great kingdoms and civilization like the Ashanti, Timbuktu, etc etc. There’s proof that Ethiopians were the real Israelites
    “A 2001 study based on cluster analysis that looked at a combined sample of Amhara and Oromo found that they share 62% of their genome with Caucasians (ASHKENNªAZI JEWS, Norwegians and Armenians), 24% with other Sub-Saharan Africans (Bantus), 8% with Austro-Melanesians (Papua New Guineans), and 6% with Far East Asians (Chinese).”

    MOSES MARRIED A ETHIO PIAN WOMAN AND GOT MUCH GREIF FROM HIS LEVITIE BRTHER AND SISTER ..THESE AE TO DIFFERENT PPLS ..MOSES WAS A HEBREW OF THE LEVITE TRIBE,.. JACOB NAMED CHANGED TO ISRAEL HE WAS A HEBREW NOT A HAMITE,..ETHIOPIANS ARE HAMITICAL PPL!
