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.
