Is Religious Jew the New Black Face?
Although I can't tell if my Jewish side or my black half should be more offended by this video, one thing is for certain, Religious Jew is becoming the new Black Face.
All of a sudden it is high-larious to don black hat, black suit and payis to imitate a group of people who are barely understood. Jump around, say some minstrel-type things and you have a shtick! Albeit an incredibly offensive one that creates stereotypes and reinforces negative racial and religious biases.
Don't get me wrong, this isn't supposed to be a blog about Jews. I'm just sayin...
