    Juju Chang

    Jew Score:



    September 17, 1965 —

    Elaine: Donna Chang?
    Jerry: I love Chinese women.

    Oh, Jerry, how wrong you were! The premise of that Seinfeld episode is that Donna Chang is a woman who pretends to be Chinese (her original name is Changstein, natch). This upsets Jerry (although he does end up dating her) and others.

    Here's another mistake Jerry made: the name Chang is not necessarily Chinese! It could be Korean, like in the case of television journalist Juju Chang. And, like the fictional Donna, she is Jewish as well, but Juju's Jewishness (say that three times fast) comes from her marriage to television executive Neal Shapiro.

    Elaine: Isn't that a little racist?
    Jerry: If I like their race, how can that be racist?

    That's a discussion for another time...

    Verdict: Jew.
