You guys are naive. Black people in America dont like jews at all. I dont know where it originally came from, but there is some serious hostility. Attend service at a black church long enough and you'll eventually hear the preacher take some cheap shots at jews. This isnt so common in good black families like mine or life-interruptus.' It seems to be more of a ghetto thing.

Im not pulling this out of my ass guys. I go to school at a place where a good third of the students are jews, and a good 100% of the security guards are black. Ive been on a first name basis with at least 20 of these guards since Ive been here, and they will really talk to us black kids. Believe me when I say I havent heard a single nice thing said about jews from any black person in philly over the last 4 years.

Yeah, it's pretty well-known what black people think of jews...

I think you'll definitely find that with some black folks, but they don't trust much of anyone except their immediate community and not all of them. I'm willing to bet the guards would say much the same about Puerto Ricans or Mexicans, too. And it's not just a black thing: the perceptions within many ethnic enclaves is that all outsiders are raping the culture.

Didn't know that. Thanks for that piece of info.

Growing up in Houston in the 80s, I was around Jewish folk for a good part of my life. It was strange, but the Jews I rubbed elbows with, and there were many of them, were, even in that day, extreme in their animosity toward African-Americans. While none were public about it, their private conversations--and at many times, I would be the only non-Jew in the room, so I was privy to many--betrayed a racial hatred that was almost Klan-like in its extremity. The non-Jews I knew, for the most part, didn't view their relations with black people through that kind of prism.

I am not really part of a jewish american culture, that much. I would say that there are a few things

1. a lot of jews who are on the upper end of the baby boom, or a little older, like my parents, worked for civil rights. some of them, like my father, worked hard for civil rights, physically fought for it, and then came away with a very bad feeling about the attitude they felt from some blacks concerning jews.

2. a lot of older jews, of the born before 1940 generation, or even older, and espectially first generation immigrants, give a great deal of value to things like education, hard work, discipline. if they perceive that a group doesn't hold the same values, they can be very critical. I think this is not much differnet from the problems that confucian immigrant groups have with african americans today often.

As someone from a 'good black family', don't you feel the least bit ashamed to be perpetuating a destructive stereotype like "Black people in America dont like jews at all."?

And it's unfortunate that you fall into the lazy trap of attributing said antagonism to a "ghetto thing". It's pretty clear to me that the supposed correlation betwen poverty and narrowmindedness is overstated at best. Though, of course, there is a rather strong correlation between poverty and having to live in the ghetto.

That's a fairly contemptible generalization as well. Gee, I wonder why this country has such a race problem when educated people from 'good families' make such insightful and useful commentary.

I'm Black and I was always under the assumption that Jews were our closest allies among the white groups. Has something changed I know don't about.
I don't know if there are many Jews or Blacks on the site , but I'd love to hear some insight on the subject.

The term Jew designates a religious group, not a racial group. This distinction seems to get blurred quite a bit.

in terms of this question, it basically just refers to american jews and blacks.

a nice chunk of world jewery is darker skinned than most African Americans, espectially the large group of ethiopian jews in israel, and the large group of southern indian jews.

Said the master to the disciples, "Which of you knows the fragrance of a rose?"
All of them indicated that they knew.
Then he said, "Put it into words."
All of them were silent.
