It was implausible to me that Barack Obama never knew Rev. Jeremiah Wright hated Jews.

Most US Jews are irretrievably liberal. US Jews have been in the forefront of the American Labour movement and the Civil Rights Movement since the 19th century. And, reciprocally, for decades the non-Jewish US Left took a stand (albeit avery tepid stand) against the institutional anti-semitism that was common in the US.
However, in recent decades, the US Left has abandoned its Jewish members to create a marriage of convenience with Islamic militants (and in the process turning its back on the principles of racial equality, religious tolerance and women's rights that defined it for most of the 20th century).
It is difficult for many US Jews to abandon what in many cases is a generational attachment to liberal causes and will turn a blind eye towards the current administrations mistakes, blunders, and occasionally malicious abuse of American liberty at home and American allies abroad.
On the plus side, more and more US Jews are embracing Libertarian and Conservative ideals and support of Israel is at an all time high among the American Jewish community.
You vastly underestimate the judgement and intelligence of American Jews. Liberalism is an ideology of wisdom, compassion, and true American patriiotism. It is the position of enlightened people.
In short, most Jews are smarter than you.

Rick Moss is a Jew though. LMFAO

Yeah, Jews founded the NAACP, and fought extensively for African American rights.

How do African Americans repay the dumb Jews, by being the most anti-Semitic American group, and by killing, and looting Jews in the Crown Heights Riots. LMFAO

I like to evaluate people as individuals, rather than undifferentiated groups. There are Jews who founded the NAACP, there are Jews who had nothing to do with that, there are bigoted Jews. And yes, there are even unintelligent Jews.
As well, there are black people who can be similarly differentiated.
Jews have suffered more at the hands of white people than the incidents you mention above. Why? Because bigotry leads to inhumanity. Neither is defensible.
There are Jews and black people whose behavior I cannot defend. But with bigotry, the innocents among each group get caught in the crossfire.

African Americans, have harmed Jews more than European Americans have.

With a lack of bigotry, we are slowly losing America, and the European race.

Trust me, if you are any indication of the value of such a cultural construction, then you have answered your own question.

I lived in a neighboring neighborhood that was mostly Jewish. A left wing secular feminist woman married to someone not of her background told me exactly how they feel. they could do and say anything they wanted and I could keep quiet. And they will attack you unless you are ready to do pure violence against them. And that pure violence will put you in prison and on death row. The worse thing is that their children suffer and die from their imperfections. And that woman had a child who died from drug reasons in a violent manner several years ago. I write this not gloating. For I have may own family issues. But power is power even if someone who is better in living is perceived as inferior because of religious or cultural bias and then made to suffer for their opinions made of common sense. Anyway this is ending as we get poorer. Only who gets the blame is the end result.

American Jews know and understand that Republican Conservatives have no interest in protecting Israel or the Jewish community in America and that it has been Democrats and the left that look out for their community and the state of Israel.

Thank you for your opinion. We will give it the careful consideration it deserves, and file it away as according to its worth.

Until this process is completed, please don't create any more of this for now, and heavens, please stay away from women and children.

Things evolve, even you.

No one is seeking to "throw away" the European "race". But there are other people in the world who are just as human, have much to contribute, and are just as deserving of compassion and hope.

Personally, I am a huge fan of multiculturalism. I like the differences and am often enriched by them. But for me, the great lesson of multiculturalism is how much our similarities outweigh our differences. The closer one gets, the more one understands this.

Finally, I inferred from your previous post that when you spoke of the "European race", you really meant the white race. As for me, I don't give a rat's ass about the color of one's skin. If I consider you intelligent, kind, interesting, with a good sense of humor, I'll probably like you. If you are a racist, I probably won't.

Yes, look at the Bronx, Camden, Newark, Compton, ect to see how much multiculturalism has enriched us. LMFAO

The only minorities that really contribute intellectually to America, are Asians, and Jews.

But, Jews have contributed a lot of negatives to America.

African Americans, and Hispanic Americans, are less intelligent on average, they score a lower IQ, and a lower PISA score.

African Americans, and Hispanic Americans, also elevate crime rates, and infest America with vicious gangs.

Europeans have invented about 90% of the modern world, why do we want to throw away the white race?

Multiculturalism is slowly replacing Europeans.

I'm sorry for you. It is white man's bigotry and oppression that creates the Bronxes, Camdens, Comptons, etc.(not "ect").
Here's your chance to learn something. Etc.is short for etcetera, meaning "and so forth". Now take your seat.

LMFAO, what typical simple liberal logic.

Why aren't Asian Indians, Chinese, Japanese, Jews, Irish, Polish, and Italians faring so poorly because of the white (Anglo) mans oppression?

Here in New York, every group has pretty much experienced prejudices, and only African Americans, and Hispanics lag on, and on.

Why is that?

Your simple logic, just doesn't match up with reality.

Way to go OCD, over a simple typo. LMFAO

Actually, Africans are thriving, as well as the Hispanics.

You need to look around more often and get over your prejudices.

As far as African Americans, obviously there is a history to be acknowledged that the other groupdsdo not share. Obvious to everyone else but you, I suppose. And I doubt anything anyone says here will convince you of the latter. So why waste our time here?

African immigrants, are mostly the elite of Africa.

Hispanics thriving, really?

European Americans have about 10 times more assets than Hispanic Americans, and African Americans.
