Anonymous asked: one of my classes is doing a section on the culture of ancient israel and on ancient judaism, and as the teacher is a white christian and all of our texts are written by christians, the class is a disaster. i am the only jewish kid in the room, and every time i try to offer commentary, the teacher interrupts. and now we have to write an essay on what we have learned, and i have been told i am not allowed to consult any sources beyond what we have been given in the class. i am afraid of what this
is going to teach the rest of the students, that they are going to end up with a really narrow view of our history and religion. i am not too well educated on the matter, and as a student i do not have anything near the authority needed to talk to the teacher or to the school about this…
Unfortunately, this kind of bullshit is standard fare for minorities, and Jews are no exception to this rule.
Is there a higher-up you can contact? A principal, dean, head of the department? If not, going against this becomes that much more difficult. You can mobilize the local community, including the local Jewish community, against what’s going on. If you don’t have records (recorded, email, or otherwise) of what’s been happening, start making them, because you need that evidence if you want to prove that she is purposely propagating false information. Petitions can be a good way to get people aware of an issue fast, but take care you have all your t’s crossed and i’s dotted - you need to have a concrete goal in mind, and your evidence clearly lined up.
Also, for your own sake, it’s good to learn more about your own people. It’s good to have the knowledge to combat others’ ignorance, but it’s also good to know your own heritage, because it belongs to you.
Seconded. Bring copies of the text to your local Rabbi and see what he can do to help. Chances are he would know who to contact for help locally within the community.
And seriously don’t just give it a pass. I did that under similar circumstances in the long - long ago and still regret it.
Jews make up 62% of religious hate crime victims in the United States, despite being 2.1% of the population.
This particular link, by the by, is an excellent source on who is targeted by hate crime in the US.
Note: Although the government statistics count antisemitic crimes as “religious” hate crimes, a substantial portion of antisemitic violence is racially or ethnically motivated.
Look how fucking dead antisemitism is uguize
And to no ones surprise, this Kansas City shooting are not as big of a deal as any other shooting.
Because it’s not a fucking tragedy when it’s a hate crime.
Only when white goyim are targets.
Yeah, this one’s been pretty quiet, because fuck if we’ll ever admit we have an antisemitism problem.
reddit voice: Israel shouldn’t have been put in the Middle East. It should have been put in Africa
Yeah, because Africa doesn’t have a long history of antisemitism. It’s only the Middle East and Europe that has that.
Seriously gentiles, if you want Israel to be elsewhere, go ahead and make it happen. Put together the funding, sort out the logistics, and get us a new country. We won’t hold our breath.
They should all give us money to make our new homeland in space.
