    It came up when he was here. I don't think he was good enough at the time for it to be a big deal to people.

    I actually think Steph Curry just being black (not mixed) caused more of a controversy on the internet.

    Old news... One of the worst moves Morey made was cutting him (second only to trading for Westbrook).

    I don't believe it. No black has a last name that ends with "stein." But I want to know if he's Jewish and has "Amaré" as his middle name. :D

    His dad is light skinned and can go as a Middle Easterner.

    I mean, if you wanna say only people with 100% African ancestry are black then pretty much no one in America is black. There's lots of similarly light skinned black people who would have to dig through the library to find white ancestry.

    Some years ago I met a black lady who looked like Viola Davis. She told me she's Chinese.
