This is why certain people hate the Jews

Many of the most prominent black race hustlers in America — Sharpton, Jackson, Farrakhan — are rabid anti-Semites. They hate Jews almost as much as they hate Republicans (two distinctly different groups). I think I understand why.

Now, before I explain why race pimps like Sharpton and Jackson despise the Jewish people, let’s back track for just a moment. Bill O’Reilly, whose show I’ve never watched in full, apparently delivered a monologue a few days ago where he insisted that the problems in black America largely come from within. The leaders of that community, he said, must encourage responsible behavior, education, sturdy families and more wholesome entertain if they really wish to find answers and solutions. His completely rational comments have been met with the usual derision and contempt from the usual contemptible and derisive liberal fools. Meanwhile, those of us with a half a brain, however we feel about O’Reilly, recognize that he was nonetheless one hundred percent correct. In fact, to take any other position than the one he articulated would be to imply that blacks aren’t capable of taking charge of their own lives. It would be to paint black men and women as helpless and immature. This insinuation is at once demeaning, degrading, offensive, and entirely false. Liberals love to play the White Savior to the Persecuted Black Population, and they’ll belittle an entire race just to give themselves that opportunity.

Or maybe I’m wrong. Maybe the horrifying statistics about crime, gangs, drug addiction, fatherless homes, drop out rates, etc. in the black community can be explained by the fact that they were persecuted in this nation for many years. Maybe there is a thing called “White Privilege”. Maybe the deck is stacked against ethnic minorities in the US and they couldn’t possibly be expected to thrive under these conditions. Maybe there just isn’t any way for a put-upon minority group to lift itself out of the slums and into prosperity.

Maybe.

Maybe I’d believe that if it weren’t for the Jews. This is why Sharpton loathes them. They completely dismantle his entire narrative. After all, if you’re going to blame past persecution for the failures of a certain group, you’re going to need all groups to cooperate. You can’t have any of them overcome and succeed in the face of unfathomable obstacles. And if they do, your only choice is to hate them for being so damned inconvenient.

Can you name a more historically persecuted group than Jews? You’ll be hard pressed to come up with one. The Holocaust was a recent atrocity and it wiped out a full sixty percent of the Jewish population. The ones that escaped fled to various corners of the Earth where they invariably met further oppression and prejudice. Can any thinking person claim the Jews have had it easy? An extermination on the scale of Hitler’s Holocaust would be enough to set any group back centuries. Jews could still be tattered, broken and in disarray, and who could blame them? They could be living on government handouts and blaming the world for their lot in life, and who could blame them? But they chose a different route. Jews in this country make up 2 percent of the overall population, yet 14 percent of the doctor and surgeon population. 20 percent of the people with law degrees in America are Jewish. The median income for Jewish households is almost 30 percent higher than the national average. Nobody handed them this. They didn’t get here through quotas and government programs. The most “offensive” stereotype for Jews in America is that they “control the media and the banks,” which is partly true, but I fail to see it as a slight against them. They are one of the smallest and historically most persecuted minorities, yet they are also one of the most powerful. In Sharpton’s World, that shouldn’t be possible.

I suppose the race hustler will respond that a Jew is still “white,” and therefore his success and his triumphs over profound adversity must be understood within the context of “white privilege.” Maybe I’d believe that if it weren’t for the Asians. The Asian people have not walked an easy path, in this country or outside of it. They usually come here from destitute poverty. They are not handed anything. They are not immune from prejudice and discrimination. They are not white. Yet Asians make up 5 percent of the overall population and 17 percent of doctors and surgeons. They account for 18 percent of Ivy League school admissions. Asians own 1.5 million businesses. The most “offensive” Asian stereotype is that they get good grades and can’t drive. The latter might be accurate in some cases, the former seems to hold true every time. It’s remarkable. Uncanny. Incredible. Japanese Americans were being carted off to internment camps a few decades ago, now they’re running hospitals. Even after the camps were closed, do you think Asian Americans were generally accepted and celebrated in post-WW2 America? Something tells me employers weren’t necessarily itching to go out and hire folks from the Orient. Talk to any young Asian man or woman. More than likely, their parents or grandparents came off the boat from their home country. Ask them how much money their family had when it arrived on our shores. I bet the answer will be somewhere between nothing and nada. And look at them now.

So how do we explain this disparity? Jews and Asians are only 7 percent of the total population, and between them they dominate in fields like medicine and engineering, not to mention entrepreneurship and academics. They rarely end up in prison or gangs (this is especially true of Jews). And while they are historically poor and persecuted, they have not allowed themselves to stay in that position. Take their story and compare it to black Americans and how can we explain the canyon that separates them? I’m sure the Jesse Jacksons of the world would sooner become Holocaust deniers than admit to the real answer: Family. Education. Ambition.

Family.

Education.

Ambition.

Whenever the plight of the minority in America is discussed, you’ll notice that Jews and Asians are left out of the conversation. In fact, many school systems are now trying to figure out how to get LESS of them in advanced placement courses and prestigious colleges. They’ve become too successful, apparently. But it’s not just their success that the race mongers hate, it’s HOW they accomplished it. Their men don’t father dozens of out-of-wedlock babies with dozens of women. Their households insist on discipline and academic success. They work hard, they are driven. Asians may now be at the point where they actually enjoy preferential bias. If I’m an employer and an Asian walks in to apply for a job, I’m going to assume he’s an achiever. That’s not a stereotype, that’s called a reputation. And they’ve freaking earned it.

Family. Education. Ambition. These three things really are a recipe for success. If you don’t believe me, ask the next Asian or Jew you meet. And then make sure to take care of your co-pay on the way out.

    Didn’t you ever see Clint Eastwood’s movie, ‘Grand Torino’? I thought Asian gang members were an anomoly myself until I watched that. Supposedly real Vietnamese audiences living in Detroit saw the film early and concluded that the plot was at least semi-realistic.

    • Judi says:

      Matt said “rarely,” he didn’t say Jews and Asians were never part of those types of groups.

      • Cylar says:

        Neither did I. What’s your point?

        But if you want to split hairs…I suggest you Google something called “yakuza.”

      • Gordon says:

        Back in the day, Jews started what is called “Murder Incorporated.” There were Jews in the “Mafia.”

    • brandt says:

      Go ahead and google Yakuza… While you’re at it google the listed Asian gangs, and the listed black gangs in addition to the estimated numbers for both. Your argument is invalid.

      • Cylar says:

        Matt seems to be implying that Asian gangs are practically nonexistent, apparently for cultural reasons.

        The fact that there not only ARE such gangs, but an entire organized crime syndicate based Japan, sort of undermines that. So no, it’s not “invalid.” Sorry, but no cigar.

        Seriously, why are we still discussing this? Just pick apart something more substantial if you want to argue the points in Matt’s article.

      • Matt says:

        Cylar,

        Do you know what the Yakuza are? Did you rely on the (always accurate) Google articles to teach you about them? The Yakuza are not, in any way, a ‘gang’ in the way that we Americans view gangs. Forget every movie you’ve ever seen them in, they are not about flashy cars and swords. The Yakuza are a business. Their business might be illegal, but they are nonetheless a business organization.

        They bring in hundreds of millions of dollars in profit. Calling them a gang is like calling the Hulk ‘irritable.’

        Make sure you know your facts before you attack other people with them.

      Was that quote lifted out of one of the numerous editions of the “Scofield” bible or was it fron The King James Version – Princeton Certified Edition? Do some research on Cyrus Scofield. Here’s an informative link to get you started…

        That passage is lifted directly out of the Old Testament, the original old testament. To confirm this, walk into a Jewish bookstore and ask for a Bible. They will hand you what has been unchanged for thousands of years. They have had no King James editing, and have had no Scofield. That passage is from the original. (Source: I have been a Bible scholar. This includes only the original Old Testament, as studied by the Jews.)

  7. sparticusiam says:

    Not to nitpick, but the last sentence contains an error. “make to make”.

    Also, Asians and Jews are successful for one reason above all. Sure education and family are important. But those are just outgrowths of the root cause – hard fucking work. Look, you can’t always be smarter than the other guy, have more connections, be handsome, be stronger. But by God you can ALWAYS work harder than someone else. You control that, and nothing else, not your race, not your looks, not your intelligence. Hard work opens doors, creates opportunity. Like a great mountain, it creates its own weather.

    This is the most grotesque thing about the race hustlers like Al Sharpton – they rob black people of the ONLY thing that really matters, the desire to work hard. Their message is you will fail no matter how hard you try, so why try? Al Sharpton has destroyed tens of thousands of young black men with his racial baiting, more than all the George Zimmermans in the world will ever shoot.

    • Trix says:

      excellent point.
      i’ve been reading through the comments and they all have significant merit, however, this one hits the nail on the head 🙂

  8. As a Jewish woman, I have to say thank you. This actually brought tears to my eyes. I know the point of this was not sentimental, but the fact that people stand up for us in a world where its easy to ignore us or resent is really touching. But enough of that. Just to give you an idea of how correct Matt is, let me share my family tree. My mothers parents came here from Poland during the war. Neither spoke a word of English. My grandmother went to public school and was picked on and teased because she was different. She now speaks fluent English with no accent, became a mathamatician and partnered with her husband in their own company called MW Microwave. My grandfather, her husband, became a ROCKET SCIENTIST! He built critical parts of the hubble telescope and had contracts with the US government building radar and other essential rocket parts that he designed and only he knew how to build. When he suddenly passed away they had to beg my grandmother to continue manufacturing parts for them until they could find someone to give their plans to that would actually be able to understand them. You need government security clearance to enter their plant. They had 2 children, my mom, who is a social worker and my uncle, an interventional radiologist (doctor) who developed his own surgical technique that is now coveted by all in his field. He married a woman who is also a doctor, and the head of nephrology at the hospital she works at. They raised 3 kids, 1 in medical school, 1 in dental school, the last just starting college. On my fathers side, his father came here during the war as well, after escaping from the Russian army. He became a successful cantor and his wife, a 3rd generation american Jew worked in a hospital. They raised 6 children to become productive members of society, including my father who is a CPA and the comptroller of a commercial real estate firm in Manhattan that owns multiple buildings in the city. By the way, his boss is off the boat from Germany, also a Jew. My brother is 25 years old. He graduated with the 2nd highest GPA in his school, beat out at the last second by an asian. He is a mechanical engineer and the company that he has been working for for the past year BEGGED him to accept the job, right out of school, and is paying him way more than any mechanical engineer would expect right out of school. My sister is in college to be a math teacher, my other sister an advertising major. And me? Well I am the failure of the family, a lowly paramedic working my ass off to take care of 2 kids and pay for private school for them, while doing nursing school at the same time. So you see, Matt is right. We came from nothing, and HERE WE ARE!

  9. EBuzz says:

    Hey Matt, read any Thomas Sowell? Your writing is in many ways an echo of his philosophy and observations.

  10. psudrozz says:

    my mother is polish. her family came to this country escaping russian/nazi tyranny. they didn’t speak a word of english. but yet they prospered through incredible hardship.

    here’s a factor which this author misses: community.
    When they arrived at this country, my great grandfather became a butcher. he started doing well in the polish area in philly (nicetown). when other polish folk arrived with nothing, he gave them help.

    long story short, a strong community helps.

    “now trying to figure out how to get LESS of them in advanced placement courses and prestigious colleges”

    What do you mean “now”? Why do you think colleges even started looking at admissions criteria like “leadership” and “extracurricular activities” about 100 years ago instead of just relying on entrance exams and high school transcripts? It was because Columbia went too Jewish and the WASP leadership was running scared. Nowadays, universities just have explicitly higher test scores required for Asians, even above that for whites, which has been consistently upheld by courts. The only top-20 university with fully race-blind admissions criteria I believe is Cal Tech, which is hugely disproportionately Asian, even though they try to aggressively recruit NAMs (non-Asian minorities, the only ones liberals recognize).

  19. Reality says:

    This is the most ill thought out and racist blog post I’ve read in awhile. Yes, RACIST. You can’t compare IMMIGRANT populations to a group of people brought here against their will, forced to work without pay, who only began to be allowed to integrate about 50 years ago, and who have historically been denied the right to your secret recipe of “Family-Education-Ambition”. The racism was INSTITUTIONALIZED. Jews and Asians (with the exception of the internment of Japanese in WWII) haven’t had to face institutionalized racism or anywhere near the level of persecution of Black Americans in the USA specifically. And there’s no denying that Black Americans are also viewed differently than an Asian or a Jew would be… so much racism lingers and you know there are people out there who automatically think Black Americans are threatening, not as smart, etc, etc. This creates all sorts of blocks to getting ahead and both external hindrances and internalized ones. The wounds from persecution of and racism against Black Americans run deep and they aren’t healed. It’s going to take some time.

    I’m not sure what there is to gain by essentially pitting one group against another as you seem to be doing in this post. I’m guessing the average Black American harbors no ill will against Jews and the Jews getting ahead as their history is totally different.

    This is just asinine:
    “Or maybe I’m wrong. Maybe the horrifying statistics about crime, gangs, drug addiction, fatherless homes, drop out rates, etc. in the black community can be explained by the fact that they were persecuted in this nation for many years. Maybe there is a thing called “White Privilege”. Maybe the deck is stacked against ethnic minorities in the US and they couldn’t possibly be expected to thrive under these conditions. Maybe there just isn’t any way for a put-upon minority group to lift itself out of the slums and into prosperity.”

    You go from talking specifically about Black Americans and their plight to lumping all minorities together with no transition. You’re comparing apples to oranges to prove some beliefs you already have about Black Americans and it’s just not working.

    • Danny says:

      Hey Matt- I LOVE your blog. I don’t know if you read comments or not (probably not with how many you would have to field!) but I hope you read mine.

      I agree with what you’re trying to say, but I think you’re not saying it correctly. You ever get that feeling when an atheist is using the Bible to discredit God by misusing scripture (in the wrong context etc)? That’s how I feel about this blog post.

      Holocaust
      Nuremberg Laws
      Auschwitz
      Why don’t you mull these over for a while and rethink your ignorant statement

  20. Robert says:

    I love this blog! You speak the truth brother. Keep up the good work!

  21. R says:

    comparing immigrant populations to blacks here is problematic to say the least from an apples to apples perspective, it is true that Asian immigrants and Indians etc do well here but you are comparing completely different sets , lots of Indians do pretty poorly in India ( I am an Indian and yes I am have done very well for myself here and yes I knew my choices were to own a 7-11 or a software company so I went the software route 🙂 )

    and furthermore the long term impact of enslavement is complicated, ditto the notion of mob lynching segregation etc I am not aware of any Indian who has that kind of past hanging over them.

    The comparison to jaws in interesting , I don’t have an easy answer to that but again ok so the Jews overcame the holocaust mad props to them but the reality is Jews in the US were not directly ( I am really not trying to minimize the impact of family that was lost of the horror that was the holocaust) impacted by what was happening in Europe and yes Jews have faced tremendous discrimination in the US as well but you know Cops don’t stop and frisk them now do they ! and yes as a group they are incredible high achievers and the deserve credit for it !

    also I mean anyone who denies that blacks are treated differently by law enforcement and the criminal justice system is clearly smoking crack ( well cocaine cause you know crack of course requires an entirely different jail sentence )
    There was an excellent study where they sent out identical resumes with black names ( tyrone , latisha etc ) and white ones and the white ones were contacted back by overwhelming margins so you know lets not pretend it all the same opportunities
    And Given the ghastly set of laws we have around rehabilitation after prison …
    And I would urge everyone to look at the innocence project ( its one the few things I give money to ) and follow the literature on DNA testing releasing innocent people from prison overwhelmingly again people of color get a raw deal when they are being tried

    The essential point though is a good one , the past impacts us all but we can make choices about how much and what it is we want to do with our future. There was a great book(Eugene Robinson’s ‘Disintegration) about how amongst African Americans’ there are 4 kinds and the author made some outstanding point about how Caribbean based African Americans do really, really well ( you know the ones never impacted by slavery, Colin Powell was the seminal example used in the book I think ) and I find this to be somewhat true based on my limited interaction with black people. ( and yes there are issues around the valued placed on family and education as well in this group)

    However the fact that even in the black community there is some evidence to show that those whose ancestors were not slaves do better than those who were is interesting

    Bottom line I feel that anyone who is insisting that there is no racism in America and you know it’s all hunky dory is an absolute charlatan and idiot ( even the folks who go yeah, yeah there is racism maybe in an isolated way and its not that important ( also known as the Bill O Reilly position ) ) just as much as people who insist racism is the cause for everything that ails African Americans . Bill Cosby IMO had an excellent view point on this and yes there is definitely a group of people whose livelihood depends on pushing the narrative that all the problems are caused by whitey.

  22. Bailey says:

    If the black community wants cops to stop profiling young black men, if they want women to stop crossing the street at night when they see a young black man, if they want cab drivers to pick up young black men, then find a way to stop young black men from committing a disproportionate amount of crime. A woman is not a racist if a young black man dressed like a thug makes her nervous. She is being practical. He is statistically seven times more likely than people of other races to commit murder, and eight times more likely to commit robbery. If we knew that red headed men were commiting 40% of violent crimes, would you blame me if a stranger with red hair made me nervous? Now, I certainly don’t believe that there is any genetic difference or that these young men are commiting crimes simply because the color of their skin, however, the black community is never going to move forward if it doesn’t drop the victim mentality. I agree with Matt and think the answer is a focus on family, education, and ambition. Fathers, stay and raise your kids! Moms and dads, stay involved in your kids schooling (help with homework, go to PTA meetings) Expose your kids to role models that extol the value of hard work and ambition instead of the “thug life” and ganster life styles. Don’t wear a “thug” uniform if you don’t want to be treated like one. And finally, please don’t blame all people’s bad attitudes on racism. Some people are just rude. It’s not because you’re black, it’s because that person is an asshole. Lol

    You may want to see the statistic on wikipedia under “anti-semitism” which points out that 35% of blacks admittedly are prejudiced against Jews. That needs to fit somewhere into your rhetoric

  26. Feiss says:

    I cannot speak to the Jewish side of your argument, but as someone who is part of the Asian immigrant community in America, I have something to say. Using the Asian community as a “model for success” that the black community is somehow supposed to follow is a logical fallacy. The situation of one minority group might have parallels to another, but this doesn’t indicate equivalence. What does it achieve to point out the successes of one group except to shame the other?

    One of the reasons for the success of certain minority groups, and here, I will speak specifically of the Chinese because I belong to this community, is the fact that the best and the brightest from my homeland (the “brain drain”) were the only ones allowed to immigrate to America. We were the “desirables”, the ones whose parents had useful skills in engineering, medicine, etc. We were the ones who were allowed in. If your parents are doctors and engineers, there is a good chance you will belong to the upper middle class as well. This is true of Asians, Jews and Black people alike. What I am say of Asians in America is that there is a selection bias which is not representative.

    Do a little reading on the systematic physical and psychological violence done upon the disenfranchised in China, and you might see an exaggerated example of what hard work gets you in a system so corrupt that I would not even call it unfair. An unfair system would be a god-send to China. Say you’re a rural farm worker born in Gansu Province, one of the poorest in China. Your usual path in life is to leave the farm at 15, when you’ve got a smattering of 5 years of education in between tilling the fields, head to the nearest big city and toil in a factory for 10 hours a day, seven days a week (some factories offer 2 days off a month), for 300 dollars a month. Education has been denied to you, you are worked like a dog, and your family has been scattered across the four corners of China. Does this sound familiar? Does this sound like slavery? Tell an average Chinese person who is raised in this system that all they have to do to overcome this system is to do a little “hard work” and form a community and get some education, and see what kind of effect this will have.

    I know you will be tempted to point to this Chinese worker and say “look how hard he’s got it, he’s not complaining, he’s not complacent” but please be aware that he does not have the luxury of complaint or complacence, because to do so would mean starvation for him and his family if not worse. Then take a look at the American system, which has had historical parallels (but not equivalences!) to the current Chinese system, and maybe think about, just for a minute, not getting so outraged that some members of the black community are trying to raise awareness of the inequalities that still exist. The fact that there exists a medium for them to complain is a blessing.

    Yes, we should all strive to improve ourselves. Get educated. Form strong family bonds and communities. I agree with all of those things. I’m sure Al Sharpton would too. But please don’t imply that there is something inherently wrong with black communities because hey, Asians are a success!

    • Buffalo says:

      Brilliant response Feiss. Just superb in both the clarity of your points and the reasoning. I completely agree that it is illogical to form any basis for comparison between minorities, without understanding the context in which those communities established themselves in the first place.

      I think the title of the article is somewhat misleading based on its content. To attempt to address why Jews are loathed by essentially deflecting onto the problems that exist in the African-American community is pretty incoherent. The disparity in socio-economic mobility amongst various ethnic groups is a complex topic. To suggest it boils down to a set of core three values traditionally possessed by one group (and therefore implying it doesn’t in another) is incredibly narrow-minded, not to mention somewhat insulting.

    • TE says:

      Great comment. I’m Jewish and this blog post makes me really uncomfortable.

      Matt: family, education, ambition are the three greatest factors for success? Those three things are EXACTLY the things that slaveowners took away from black Americans. Read some W.E.B. DuBois. He, like you, was in favor of black Americans taking charge of their destiny and working hard to improve their lot, but he didn’t deny all the factors that were working against them and continued to work against them and have since continued to work against them.

  27. valentino says:

    I doubt Matt has ever spoken to an Asian or Jewish person because I somehow don’t think they’d agree “HEY, IT’S AN EVEN PLAYING FIELD OUT THERE!” Ask a Jewish person who grew up in a predominantly Christian segment society or an Asian in a white social sphere. And didn’t you rail against college education in another entry? You’re such a dishonest jerk. 🙂

    Here’s a blog post specifically challenging yours from the standpoint of a black American. Good counterpoint: http://beautopotamus.blogspot.com/2013/09/we-shall-overcome.html

  29. Terisa Hammond says:

    Before you attempt to formulate your assertions on what you see as “who’s responsible for the problems of Black people” I warmly encourage you to read several books (not websites) and listen and talk to scholars about 1) ANCIENT (pre-European and Arab invasion) African history (not what you learned in school – oh, I forgot…they DON’T teach ancient African history in school) and 2) the real, unglorious history of the U.S.A. The powers that be have done an excellent job of hiding historical and recent atrocities that our “great nation” has forced upon people of color, in this nation as well as across the planet. Yes, Blacks/we should bear some responsibility for our plight – no doubt. However, our current state DID NOT develop inside of a vacuum, and Racism/White Supremacy needs to be recognized as the main culprit. Please let me know if you would like some suggested books for reading, as I would be more than happy to share.

  30. It’s nice to see someone standing up for the forgotten minorities in this nation, especially the Jews. It breaks my heart to hear the horrible things that some in the Middle East in particular say about the Jews. Then again, it’s terrifying to hear what they say about Christians. It definitely makes me never want to visit Egypt or any other Middle Eastern state.

    Forgive the lateness of my response to this post, but I am just catching up on your past blogs and I really LOVE this breath of fresh air and common sense. However, this post is JUST WRONG and ignorant. I agree with another post by Reality; you cannot compare immigrants to the descendents of slaves!!! The majority of Asian/Latino/Jewish immigrants who came to this country had some life-changing circumstances that the black american race were NOT ALLOWED for years: Family, Education, and Community. The three things you name as being critical for success are three things the law forbade for years to blacks. Slave families were routinely seperated, for hundreds of years. No language or culture was kept from the motherland. Black men were emasculated through slavery into Jim Crow. Black women were raped and are still today shown as undesirable and less than feminine. Black people were seperated by skin color and still have a color complex. Were Asian families seperated and forced to deny their language and culture? Were Jewish women raped repeatedly only to see their children sold off? No and No. When blacks were finally emancipated, their efforts to educate themselves and build a community were repeatedly thwarted. Did you never learn of the Tulsa, Ok race war? Did you not see Rosewood (based on a true story)? There is a reason that Blacks from other countries seem to fare better than Blacks in America…they have their families, their traditions, their language, education, and PRIDE. Black Americans have been stripped of this for so long that one would be foolish to think it would not have long lasting effects.
    Study your history.
    I come from a line of educated black men and women (Ivy league educated) who were lucky enough to have been given a chance for a better life starting with an uneducated FAMILY all working to put one son through school. They were very lucky for their time; my great-great-grandparents were given land by the white family that used to consider them property. Not all blacks have that kind of head start. Many never found their families after slavery ended, never owned land, cattle, never had money or education or any of the prerequisites to becoming stable and successful.
    Still love your blog, but please please due a little more research and balance your views for the sake of a fan.

      I find it interesting that you call your family “lucky” when they all worked together to put one boy through school and change their legacy forever. I think you are selling them short but attributing it all to “luck”

      • Kiki says:

        They were lucky because they were given a head-start by being granted property. 100 years ago, owning land was rare and valuable. This enabled that first generation of freed slaves to grow crops to sell and eventually save enough money to send their child to school. Yes, the majority of success is due to hard work but it all started due to luck.

    This is nothing but racist bull shit and you know it. Geesh the education in America is really failing. You know nothing about the black community, only what you hear and watch on the tv. Why don’t you ask the people in Palestine how great jews are. Did you know jews played both sides of the war? Of course you didn’t because you believe your history books and your forefathers. Yes even jews will slit another jews neck to get ahead. Can you name a more historically persecuted group than Jews? yeah I can, black America and you are persecuting us here with lies. Maybe you should go search for the truth and re-educate yourself.

    • Penina says:

      Sorry but Black Americans have only existed as long as America, roughly 240+ years. Jews have been persecuted for over 2000 years.

    The only thing you forget to mention is that they succeed because they are united as a group and they team up against everyone else.

    They are not smart or anything else, they get help from their own group that’s it. This is why they are afraid of a national white side, cause whites are those that mastered everything long before jewish or israelis or blacks or asians were found in existence.

    So take a heed, the whites are the group that has to swallow everything yet they stil make this world move. We don’t team up because it is racist, yet we manage to do everything possible.

    It is a misconception that jews are clever or awesome or above others, if it was the case in the ancient times where everyone was living separately jews would have an awesome nation full of history and magnificent findings.

    But they don’t, look at Greece, the country that was attacked by most subhumans in the history of mankind, they are great, they still exist although what they have been through. Look at other great civilizations that don’t leech from other people.

    ~~~~~~

    Jews need to be in a white world to succeed so they can differentiate themselves and act as a group against others, alone they have nobody to leech from, similar the blacks, they need to exist as a parasite in another world that will accept them… a white world that will keep their species alive and still keep feeding them.

    A race or group of people should only be seen how awesome they are when they are on their own without any others around. We have seen the white thrive when they were alone, we haven’t seen many other races or civilizations do the same!

    • Penina says:

      Wow, this is probably the most racist thing I’ve read here so far. What are “whites” according to you and how far back are you going? “A race or group of people should only be seen how awesome tehy are when they are on their own without any others around” makes absolutely no sense. How well minorities thrive AS minorities is the purpose of this article, not who is more awesome than whom.

    • Seriously? There were plenty of civilizations that were doing just fine before the whites showed up, leeched off of them, and ruined them. Just because they didn’t do well after the whites butted in doesn’t mean that they weren’t successful beforehand.

    • Cypress says:

      It would then fascinate you to notice this: Almost every nation throughout the centuries that have been “full of history and magnificent findings” were, at the time, in some way, harboring the Jewish nation. This includes Germany pre-WW1/2, Greece, Rome, and others. Strange coincidence, wouldn’t you think?

  34. FIRST OF ALL IF IT WASNT FOR BLACKS FIGHTING IN WORLD WAR 2 THE JEWS MAY HAVE NOT BEEN FREED,IF IT WASNT FOR BLACKS FIGHTING FOR CIVIL RIGHTS ASIANS WOULD NOT BE AS SUCCESSFULL AS THEY ARE.NAME ANOTHER MINORITY GROUP THAT CONTRIBUTED TO AMERICAN CULTURE MORE THAN BLACKS?ASIANS NEVER PICKED COTTON IN AMERICA.THE JEWS WERE NEVER LYNCHED AND WERE NEVER SLAVES IN AMERICA.AND AS FOR WHITES THERE ARE MORE WHITES ON WELFARE THAN BLACKS,THERE ARE MORE WHITES ON DRUGS THAT BLACKS,MORE WHITES COMMIT FINANCIAL CRIMES THAN BLACKS.SO YOU DONT KNOW YOUR FACTS.THERE ARE MORE SUCCESSFUL BLACKS THAN ALOT OF PEOPLE THINK.WHEN SLAVERY ENDED THE BLACKS QUICKLY FORM THERE OWN COMMUNITIES ONLY TO HAVE THEM DESTROYED BY POOR JEALOUS WHITE PEOPLE,SO BEFORE YOU WRITE A BLOG KNOW YOUR FACTS.

    “Matt seems to be implying that Asian gangs are practically nonexistent, apparently for cultural reasons.

    The fact that there not only ARE such gangs, but an entire organized crime syndicate based Japan, sort of undermines that. So no, it’s not “invalid.” Sorry, but no cigar.” Well first of all we are talking about america not japan. 2nd, even if asian and jews are in gangs they are smart enough to get caught. While stupid black and white get raped in jail. God BlesS Amerika

  36. Mindy says:

    Thanks for the positive mention! A Jew.

  37. M. Levine says:

    The comment about not many Jews in prison is not true. If you look at Federal prison populations for white collar crime for example there is one with 65% Jewish in New York State; orthodox and secular. Also the crackdown on predatory child molesters has thankfully landed many supposedly Orthodox rabbis in prison.
    Blacks have a harder time because they are black. Period. Witness ‘Stop and Frisk’.

  38. Chaya says:

    Jews are seen as white in America. In fact, some even change their name to appear yet more white. Thus they have white privilege. But they also have G-d privilege. Backed with the Torah to give them wisdom, and the tearful prayers of tzaddikim(sages) of old, its very hard to imagine that they would fail. But the time that they did fall -when many were turning away from the Torah, the haskalah movement was in full swing, etc., the holocaust occurred. But just before it occurred, there was the same disparaging imagery of the Jews in the media, they were barred from many things, clubs, jobs, etc, Life was difficult. Outside of leaving the country, i don’t see how they could have avoided the holocaust.

    The Black Americans are coming at their problems with no Torah to give them answers. They clearly do not have white privilege, and in fact they are looked at with hatred (both subtle and venomous ) and not given even the doubt that maybe they could be in the right. With this as their background, they are left to fend for themselves in hostile territory.

    You will not see in the media, their creativity such as blues music, jazz, starting the rock and roll movement lauded too loudly. You will not hear about the inventions that they have contributed to the United States, You will not know how much they are progressing from the media. Basically, no one will admit to the wrongs they have inflicted on these people, nor to the progress that they have made despite these inflictions.

    The Asians, I believe, also get backlash. But they keep their lips shut and do not complain loudly. By doing this, they do not promote themselves as “fair game” for hatred. Like this. the more timid racist will be unsure how to act around the Asian –they won’t know if its okay to hurt them or not until the see others -the bolder ones doing the same. Unlike the race baiters within the black community and white liberals with seemingly good intentions(??) who do promote the Black Americans as “fair game” by decrying loudly their victim-ness. Each. And every. Time.

    I am jewish. We live by extremely strict standards stemming from the Torah. Even if someone is not religious these ways have been ingrained for centuries. They don’t kid around when they say “jewish guilt”.
    I still believe, asians and jews are pretty white looking.

  41. Cathy says:

    People hate the jews because they band together as one large criminal organization. They pull each other up into high positions and then subvert the people they are preying on. They are the purveyors of filth and push such as open borders, homosexuality, feminism, etc., that demeans the country that they are hosts of. Look at Russia, the Bolshevicks murdered millions of white christians after they made it a crime to say anything against the jews. Look at Europe, they also have laws against anti semitism so the jews have a field day subverting their countries also. America is hood winked into supporting Israel so everyone now hates us. As far as bless the jews so that we will be blessed another poster is correct, that would have been unheard of if it weren’t for the Scolfield Bible.

    The Asians are truly a great race and I love them in my country. I have two Asian uncles by marriage and hence numerous Asian cousins. They are an asset to our country and to our family where as the jews are a burden in any country they go to. Since we started supporting Israel our country as gone to the crapper. The Bible does say not to associate with evil and the jews are evil through and through.
