Default Re: Abbreviated Diavlog

I have to disagree with Wonderment's post that a discussion of what constitutes Jewish culture or Mexican-American culture would cause a riot. I'm Jewish by birth and Mexican-American by marriage. I've had many conversations about what Jewish culture consists of and whether I'm a "real Jew" (to quote from Annie Hall) and many discussions,somewhat jokingly, about how "cholo" someone is. To my mind, there are identifiable Jewish, Mexican-American and black cultural elements and there's nothing wrong with talking about them (realizing, of course, that in present day America there is a great deal of interchangeability - I have WASP friends who I consider Jewish and Irish friends who, growing up in East Los Angeles, are definitely cholo.)
