They Don't Speak For Me

Why is it that whites and white looking people on the left feel that they have a right to speak on behalf on black people everywhere?
When we kneel in shul once a year on Yom Kippur we feel vulnerable. That’s how African Americans feel every day.
No. I do not "feel vulnerable every day". What kind of phobic moron would I be to feel vulnerable every day? This is such an insult to African-Americans.
And we Jews still aren’t doing enough to dismantle the American race privilege that we benefit from
Now this I agree with. I think Jews should remove themselves from their over-representation in media and finance for starters. That would be a most excellent start.
is there a fitting expression of solidarity that the Jewish community could make with the athletes that Trump has targeted?
Yes. Shut the fuck up. And if you can't do that at least tell the truth.
In other words, it often means something has gone terribly wrong.
Yes something has gone terribly wrong. I don't think you quite understand what it is though.
African-Americans don’t need to bow in shul to feel vulnerable to danger. To be black in America is to feel danger not just once a year, but all year, every year.
Really? Danger of what? From whom?
We need to acknowledge that we benefit from institutions, from schools to banks to workplaces to courtrooms to jails - that are stacked against African Americans.
Institutions like banks and media conglomerates....
Which means that they give unearned privilege to white people. Yes, even white Jews.
Glad for you to admit that. Jesus said something about rods, motes and eyes.
