Prince - half Jewish?

My girlfriend is Jewish and she claims every entertainer is Jewish lol and she said that Prince's mother was Jewish, with a name like Shaw I always suspected she was part Irish.

Is Prince's mom Jewish?

That would mean he's half Jewish. Please prove my girlfriend wrong.lol

FYI, there's nothing like : half jewish.

If your mother is a jew, then you are a jew, if your father is a jew, then you're not.

Plain and simple.

To answer your question, I don't think Prince is a jew for one reason, the jewish commandments are so hard and the study is so tough he would never have to turn towards the jw.

My two pences.

Prince's momma was from Lousinana, not Isreal. She was African American... many African Americans have mixed lineage ... so many are very fair skinned sporting blue eyes, blond hair, freckles like Ms. Mattie Nelson did.

Prince is Black, African American to be exact. He says so in his songs too.... biggrin

now I'm off to the next ridiculous thread on Prince.... because if he's Black you know there's gotta be something wrong with him or he's gotta be lying or hiding something... can't be normal and black and successful, oh heavens forbid!

Prince's parents are black. Then again there's black jews so that doesn't really answer the question lol .

I've never read anything about either of his parents being Jewish, though.

The term 'creole' is almost a religion in itself...no definite validity, one of those 'oldy' words made up by 'the other' to define 'another' group of people...and has passed down through history.

Prince is what he defines himself as, not what others define him to be.

I'm going by what the dictionary says, plus Prince said it himself on George Lopez that "They can't find out who my mom's dad is", he himself ain't sure so there, Shit he might just be Puerto Rican like me , like George said, um whatever he is "I" want sum that! Baby it really don't matter to me, I can get jiggy with. -Yes MUAH Ahhh a woman can dream can't she Damnit you have to spoil my fantasy he's Creole, party poop!

You can have your fantasy darlin', don't mind me...I thought Prince's comment on Lopez was an attempt at humour though.

Well being Jewish has always been a combination of Ethnicity Religion & Culture

the Hebrew people(descendants of Abraham) that are/were from the Middle East have all 3 and like any person can freely decide not to observe the religious or cultural ways. There are Jewish people who don't follow the full Torah but still continue in cultural ways.

Prince is what he defines himself as, not what others define him to be.

Well the French used that word to define French people not born on French soil. It then extended to people of mixed French heritage. 1) French & Spanish(Spaniards) 2.) French and Mulattoes 3.)French & Africans.

It also continued to the culture formed by the French-Creoles and their influence into Canada Louisiana, Dominican Republic and certain other islands

So it wasn't a 'racist' idea

I'm a Hispanic Muslim, born and raised in a household of a Cristian and an Atheiest, now my ex fiance/my daughter's father is African American on his mother's side and Hebrew on by his father now yes he is Jewish, he doesn't deny that Judiasm has been in his upbringing and he does comply with like circumcision and what not but his preference and religion of choice is Islam through the NOI which follows Farrakan, nevertheless take me for example, I have been a slave all my life to what I am on paper, even tho there's a possibility that I may even have black AND white in me through my dead granparentsfrom things I've seen and heard, it's hard and it hurts to go through lie not fully knowing who you are and where you come from, you then have to find your own path double time, you question what you say, what you do, who you date, cause people think or feel that you need to be stuffed into a cookie cutter, I go places people don't know what the hell I am, I am from the east coast, midwest, and west coast so I get it all the time what are and where are you from, as long as you know God and Yourself that's what matters to Hell with what people think -Peace

Oh he was serious? Glad someone has a direct insight into Prince's mind.

The definition of 'creole' according to you then seems to have developed from a narrow definition then extending into something wider & wider = now meaningless.

I'm with hsh though, it really doesn't matter to moi.

99% of my posts are ironic. Maybe this post sides with the other 1%.
