Let’s end the week on a positive note, a video from Jerome White, Jr., aka enka singer Jero. Enka is a little old fashioned, so Jero is making waves. He’s young! He wears fitted caps! He’s American! He dances!
I don’t want to get into identity politics, since I don’t know how he identifies himself, but a lot of press is hailing him as the first black enka singer. For sure, he’s black, but he’s also Japanese, and for me, I’d like to claim him as a mixed race celebrity.
