Jewish Role Central to Anti-White Activities
Jews have been the main driving force in all the movements which take power, wealth, and freedom away from Whites, and which ultimately are intended to lead to our genocide. Their own words prove their responsibility.
ON November 9, 2015, Bend the Arc and The Temple Emanu-El Skirball Center hosted a conversation about the role of Jews in “the present-day struggle for racial justice in America led by the burgeoning Movement for Black Lives.” Speaking were Yavilah McCoy, CEO of Visions Consulting, Bend the Arc leader and “Jewish racial justice advocate”; Opal Tometi, co-founder of #BlackLivesMatter; David Goodman, president of The Andrew Goodman Foundation; Bend the Arc’s CEO Rabbi Stosh Cotler.
The office where Rabbi Jonah Pesner sits as the head of the Reform movement’s Religious Action Center is across the hall from the conference room where the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965 were drafted, a physical representation of the intimate and integral role Jews and Jewish organizations played in the Civil Rights movement.
Jews accounted for a disproportionate number of the movement’s supporters. They showed up at marches and freedom rides, contributed significant funds to civil rights organizations, and took leadership roles in advancing the legal fight for civil rights through the courts and in Congress.
That legacy continues to inspire many Jews and, for Pesner, this history certainly informs his organization’s current work. But he is also cautious that it doesn’t define it.
“It’s critical to tell the story so that we know,” he said of the Jewish contribution to civil rights. “But the risk of mythologizing is that we become too self-congratulatory.”
When Jews learn about civil rights, they learn about it through a Jewish lens. They focus on stories where Jews are central, like the 1964 murder of Andrew Goodman and Michael Schwerner, two young Jewish civil rights workers who were killed by members of the KKK along with James Chaney, a young black activist. Or through visible figures like Rabbi Israel Dresner and Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel, who then come to represent the entire Jewish community.
