What likewise makes this current political moment so perplexing and painful is that most Jews, many conservatives and Republicans included, are right there with blacks in opposing this president and the type of American politics he embodies. The persistence of anti-Semitism in the black community worries Jews who feel that their interests have not been so clearly aligned with those of black Americans since the high-water mark of black—Jewish collaboration in the s.
The prevalence of, and insouciance toward, anti-Semitism in the African-American community mirrors a trend within the broader progressive community. Noam Chomsky elaborated on this theme in You find occasional instances of anti-Semitism but they are marginal. Anti-Semitism is no longer a problem, fortunately. According to this analysis, because blacks supposedly lack political power, or have less of it than Jews, it is either not possible for them to be anti-Semitic, or their anti-Semitism is not worth worrying about compared with that of traditional, right-wing anti-Semitism.
Steve Bannon defends Trump and calls Catholic church 'terrible' on immigration
Though Farrakhan regularly fills arenas for his harangues and earns audiences with congressmen, liberals have been at pains to minimize his influence. Not really, because he only really affects the black community.
But people in Chicago, white Jews, love to talk about him and love to paint him as the ultimate anti-Semite. Why is that? For all the talk about how the NOI helps poor black communities, one will not make it very far in this world if he believes that crafty Jews are trying to keep the black man down with gay weed. I want to kill you!
African. Hebrew. Israelite.
Like, Louis f—ing Farrakhan? Are you serious? Because Louis Farrakhan is empowered to do what? He runs an organization that controls what resources? And creates what policy? And owns property where? The president of the United States.
Blacks and Jews: oppression not the same
And that various people walking around the planet are racist, sexist, anti-Semitic, is, like, shrug-my-shoulders true. Which is why it is all the more important for responsible black leaders to draw a line in the sand when it comes to toxic figures such as Farrakhan, and to reject the excuses of their enablers. A political coalition that makes room for the likes of such individuals is one that will inherently be unwelcoming to Jews, and one that all decent people should reject.
The recent controversies are reflective not so much of a major, growing rift between blacks and Jews as they are indications of two competing visions for America. It is willing to make common cause with all manner of illiberal and regressive political forces provided they hew to the party line.
And on the other side sits the postwar American liberal tradition of pluralistic patriotism to which Jews of all political stripes have so faithfully pledged allegiance. Permissions Icon Permissions. Published by Oxford University Press.

On the opposite side of American politics, many progressive groups are preparing to mount a rebellion against Donald Trump. Three-quarters of American Jews voted against Trump, and many support this progressive vision. Some members of these groups, though, have singled out particular Jews for their collusion with oppressive power—criticisms which range from inflammatory condemnations of Israel to full-on conspiracies about global Jewish media and banking cabals. These are rough sketches of two camps, concentrated at the margins of U. On the extreme right, Jews are seen as impure—a faux-white race that has tainted America.
And on the extreme left, Jews are seen as part of a white-majority establishment that seeks to dominate people of color. Taken together, these attacks raise an interesting question: Are Jews white? As pro- and anti-Trump movements jockey to realize their agendas, the question of Jews and whiteness illustrates the high stakes—and dangers—of racialized politics.
From the earliest days of the American republic, Jews were technically considered white, at least in a legal sense. Later laws limited the number of immigrants from certain countries, restrictions which were in part targeted at Jews. Culturally, though, the racial status of Jews was much more ambiguous. Especially during the peak of Jewish immigration from Eastern Europe in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, many Jews lived in tightly knit urban communities that were distinctly marked as separate from other American cultures: They spoke Yiddish, they published their own newspapers, they followed their own schedule of holidays and celebrations.
Those boundaries were further enforced by widespread anti-Semitism: Jews were often excluded from taking certain jobs, joining certain clubs, or moving into certain neighborhoods. Over time, though, they assimilated. Just like other white people, they fled to the suburbs.
