Jewish mothers get their groove on
Tall black man teaches middle-aged Jewish women to dance to hip-hop and rap. Hilarity and greater cultural understanding ensues:

Purists may say teaching a bunch of upper-middle-class white women hip-hop runs counter to origins; that the power of what was a uniquely African-American art form becomes diluted.

White, 29, doesn't see it that way. He says the message of the music transcends cultural differences. If a lyric talks about frustration or rage, that can just as easily apply to an unfulfilling 9-to-5 job or a marriage in trouble as it can police brutality or racism.
