Social Security and Intergroup Relations

By I. M. Rubinow

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Service, March 1936

Considering some of the causes lurking behind racial tensions and other intergroup prejudices and hostilities, the author points to economic uncertainty as a key factor, while admitting that this should not be seen as a simple, single cause. He discusses the interplay between social and economic pressures on one hand and intergroup discrimination on the other, mentioning American oppression of blacks and (what were then only the beginnings of) Nazi persecutions of Jews in Germany. FDR's social security program, with its promise of a basic economic security, will also help intergroup relations, the author argues.
