Bullsh!t; Black people mingle and get along with every ethnic group. We HAVE to. Sometimes we're the only "dark person" in the room; how often does that happen to white people??? Sounds like you don't know what the definition of xeonphobic.

Define "xenophobic".

If (gasp) DEMANDING that these ELECTED reptilians , our so-called "leaders", uphold their oath to the Constitution and Federal Law by enforcing Federal Immigration Laws and border security is "xenophobic" , then yep , I'm "xenophobic".

If questioning why our southern border is largely unguarded during a time of war , while AMERICAN CITIZENS are "snooped" on , harrassed at airports (full-body scans), and roughed-up by cops suffering from "roid rage", is "xenophobic" , than ditto.

If by merely suggesting that there are 30 MILLION ILLEGAL MEXICANS/CENTRAL AMERICANS currently in the U.S., and pointing out all the crime that can be attributed to them , as well as the costs they incur , is "xenophobic" , once again , guilty as charged.

Xenophobic? I guess so. AND PROUD OF IT!!!!

Trick question? Check this out? I've recounted the experience I had in college. A prof was testing for Anti Semitism. On two occasions I was interviewed. Of course, no one told those being surveyed exactly what the test was sampling.

I was tested twice but by two different students over a two semester time frame. Other Black students were tested. All came in contact with similar surveys and reported similar treatment.

I lived in a "middle" class area; that is, my neighbors were mail carriers, clerks, cops, firemen, teachers, etc can be termed "middle class." Also, I was attending a privately supported school and paying tuition. In the lounge, I was approached by a student and agreed to help him with a course survey.

Question: "Identify your neighborhood?"

Ans: I found my neighborhood on a map of the city and reported same.

The surveyor listed on his clip board that I lived in a lower class neighborhood. It turned out that according the survey, all Blacks lived in "lower class" neighborhoods.

Question: "How many Jews live in your neighborhood?"

Ans: What?

Question: "How many Jews live in your neighborhood?"

Ans: Hell, I don't have the slightest idea.

Question: Make a rough guess?

Ans: OK, I guess that there are no Jews living in my neighborhood.

Question: That can't be right. There must be at least a few Jews in your neighborhood.

Ans: Silence

Question: Look at it like this. Let's say that there are 10%, no let's make it 20%, maybe more?

Ans: Not a chance. Most of the people in my neighborhood are Black.

In the end, both students exaggerated the number of Jews living in my community, and--as indicated--it's been widely reported that a "scientific" study, originating at my University found a strong correlation between poor Blacks and anti Semitism.

why would Jews be living in a poor black neighborhood? Jews always live in decent areas. None of that makes any sense at all. and just because someone says there are Jews in his area, how is that anti-semitic? your whole tale sounds bogus.

Frankly, I love folks who contradict me. Here's a link. I suggest you read it carefully.

http://www.adl.org/antisemitism_survey/survey...

In fact, I'll post the relevant part for you.

Quote
The most anti-Semitic Americans tend to have less day-to-day contact with Jews than does the rest of the population.

The current survey shows that the most anti-Semitic Americans tend to have less contact with Jews in their day-to-day life than do other Americans.

Only about one-in-four (26%) of the most anti-Semitic Americans**** report that they come in contact with people of the Jewish faith very or fairly often -- either socially or where they work. Among the "not anti-Semitic" group, by comparison, 45% say they come in contact with Jews at least fairly often.

Similarly, the most anti-Semitic Americans are somewhat less likely to report having Jewish friends or relatives. Fewer than one-in-three (30%) respondents in the most anti-Semitic group say they count at least one Jewish person among their acquaintances, compared to 43% in the not anti-Semitic group.

This finding differs from the 1992 survey, which showed little correlation between aperson's level of contact with Jews and their propensity to hold anti-Semitic beliefs.

Close quote.

You can check the authenticity by going to the indicated link. Caution: I'm not saying that the info I'm giving here is directly linked to the survey given me in college. I'm saying that the results shown here are similar, if not identical, to the findings reported from the survey I and other African Americans took. Also, the above poll does not make the crucial mistake of super imposing poverty on the reported sample, but--looking at your reply--it's safe to say that poverty is implied.

The following passage directly depicts Blacks, again the conclusions I suggested are supported.

Quote

mpact of Education in the Black Community

The current survey reaffirms the strong correlation between education level and acceptance of anti-Jewish stereotypes among African-Americans.

Among those blacks without any college education, 43% fall into the most anti-Semitic group. This number drops to 27% among African-Americans with some college experience, and stands at 18% among blacks with a four-year college degree.

The overall level of anti-Semitism among all these groups is down from 1992. At the same time, it should be noted that black Americans at all education levels are significantly more likely than whites at the same level to accept anti-Jewish stereotypes.

Right, surveys--rarely scientific--are used for political purposes. It is not unusual that specific groups are targeted in order to obtain certain results, and it is not unusual that the actual results are massaged in order to get the survey to agree with opinions held by the author.

Jews are not the only people in this world who feel hated.
African immigrants, chaldeans, vietmanese, latinos, eastern europeans, Irish and many other ethnic groups also have something to say in the debate.

You are misinformed if you think there are not Jews living in neighborhoods predominantly blacks, latinos or black and latinos. Google Crown Heights, New York or Williamsburg, New York, both in the borough of Brooklyn.
