The Black-Jewish Sideshow

By Leonard Fein

Forward Association, 1994

The relationship between Blacks and Jews, once a partnership of social and civic justice has fallen so far from its height during the civil rights protests. The truth is while there are certainly racist Jews and antisemitic Blacks, the vast majority of both groups hold no hate for the other, but rather are representative of an America that has no answer for questions of race. Black-Jewish relations are merely a sideshow until America learns how to deal with calamities of the racial divide in the nation - growing income disparity, violence and disenfranchisement.
