Q: Why is being proud of my Jewish roots considered wrong, but black pride is okay?
Muhammad Rasheed - Hm. An interesting question. I guess it depends on the quality of argument provided by the people doing this protesting.
Is it just some random hooligans shallowly mocking you for wearing your yarmulke, or something similar?
Or is it someone who keeps bringing up who owned the Middle Passage ships, the West African forts, the New England rum distilleries and the sugarcane plantations during the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade? Perhaps they keep bringing up the Civil Rights Era “Black & Jewish Alliance” and linking it to “paternalism,” “gradualism” and maybe even a certain “Claims Conference” while the Black American former slave class ethnic group somehow remains devoid of a wealth-building ownership protected class that the Jews received after that suspiciously one-sided civil rights “alliance?”
Can you provide more information?
