James Baldwin, Negroes Are Anti-Semitic Because They’re Anti-White

Ever so clarifying and edifying. Baldwin crafts a new humanistic idiom bridging social scientific and literary inquiry into the nature of truth being and freedom with a sincere and life-long search for God

“The root of anti-Semitism among Negroes is, ironically, the relationship of colored peoples–all over the globe–to the Christian world. This is a fact which may be difficult to grasp, not only for the ghetto’s most blasted and embittered inhabitants, but also for many Jews, to say nothing of many Christians. But it is a fact, and it will not ameliorated–in fact, it can only be aggravated–by the adoption, on the part of colored people now, of the most devastating of the Christian vices.”
