@arielxpink talk about his music and the jewish race and religion

From 10:51 on: Ariel Pink: “…race, not a religion, that means like..I’m from the tribe of Abraham. It means I can’t deny my judaism, based on their rules, like I can’t say ‘I’m not jew’. But the fact is I’m not of the bloodline.”

Interviewer: “You didn’t choose to be chosen.”

Ariel Pink: “I was mistakingly chosen, and now they’re just like ‘You’re jewish, come on!’ They just wanna, like cover it up. But that’s the kind of jews we have now a days, so fly-by-night jews. And I take religion very seriously, I actually do! I really really really respect it, but I think that all jews should be at the wall and pray now, not being rock stars.”

The Silver Jews on jews

“And the proof to me is the jew survival, and how they exel, how many nobel prize winners they have etc. And I feel that these people maybe have caught on to something that maybe other civilisations haven’t.” David Berman, The Silver Jews.

I agree to some extend on this.
