Peggy is mom to Rashida and she is a Jew therefore Rashida is officially a Jew.   Who she’s dating was not in the show but we know that man is also Jewish SETH MYERS.  So that makes sense she is sticking to her own kind.  Of course their kids would be white/Jewish if they were to have any or get married.

This Friday Rashida was highlighted on the show Who Do You Think You Are?  There were not too forthcoming about showing photos of the family when she was young.  One thing I learned and was surprised about: Peggy Lipton is Jewish.  She fooled me. But that goes without saying because in her day which was decades ago I did not focus on  racial identity outside of my family.  And even if I did Peggy just does not look Jewish. 

Her family was from a country bordering on Russia.   Some of her family was killed when the Nazi rounded up the town they were from and took them to the forest and shot them all and they were put in large open graves.   I’ve watched a movie or two about such an event but I am not sure if this was their particular village or not. 

Rashida looks just like her mother which is very unusual considering her dad Quincy Jones just looks like your average black man with little white admixture.
