ARE YOU A PROUD RACIST?

Hopefully you are not a racist and especially not a proud racist. If you are one at least try to hide it. There are so many frum Jews that tell me straight out "I am a racist and I am proud of it". Their reasons are of course related to our president elect Barack Obama. I was sickened to hear that some people can actually just start using the N**** word so loosely. People who would be disgusted with being called a K***, couldn't care less of discriminating another race. The same people who are being discriminated every day and are hated by all. Can they actually feel the right to do the same to others?

I always knew us Jews as whole respected all colors of people except just a few of us. Now my vision has changed. It is now "us Jews as a whole are proud racists except a few". One proud racist told me "I guess you are against most Jews because most are racist". I asked the proud racist "don't you know that everyone has a Tzelem Elokim. How could you discriminate them?" (reflection of g-d) to which he had answered "G-d isn't black"

I hate racist Jews and especially the one who is proud of his sick ways. I am disgusted.

I very much dislike when ignorant people who use superlatives and generalizations to justify their ignorance:(

G-d is white? Really? And the sad thing is, so much of this comes from men who have allegedly sent years learning in yeshiva, which is supposed to sharpen your mind, not turn it into tuna casserole.

the sad thing is, so much of this comes from men who have allegedly spent years learning in yeshiva and should know that god is not corporeal.

People use certain things as status symbols. Some people use Judaism as their status symbol and feel they are someone superior or better by using religion.

There have been shiurim in my community about Shabbat and saying life. There are these handful of people.....they said they would not help a suffering non-Jew on Shabbat and to top it off they laughed at the situation. Someone who is suffering in front of me because of a fatal accident or similar is not something I would laugh at if I would see it.
I think it has nothing to do if they are religious or not, I truly believe such people have serious psychological issues.

sorry it is supposed to be saving life and not saying life. typo.

esther:

the people giving the shiurim say not to save their lives?

Esther Hadassah's blog said...

LOZ, no they usually finish up the argument by referring to rabbis who tell us to save lives and the reason they give is, that if we don't save lives, the Jewish community might get into trouble. Another conclusion I heard from few rabbis is that we should help the person in distress cause we don't know if the person is Jewish or not.

Btw, speaking of proud racists, I work with quite a few of them. None jewish, but all very proud and most don't hide it, either...Also, what do you say about 90+% of AA peoples voting for Obama? Were they all democrats or was it a blatant display of "african pride'?

Lets call them black not African American and yes it was a race issue that voted for Obama.

Youre right and youre wrong. Its not "much of this" its "all of this is coming from people sent to Yeshiva.

G-d loves all. Just because your part of the chosen people doesnt mean your better.

How about you save a goy because he is a living person and all life matters (im not going environmentalist here).

Actually this is why I would save a goy, he or she was also created by Hashem.

It is distressing to me as someone who has gotten along with most Jewish people to see that some are racist.It is wearing religious garb in way that says one is very religious that is disturbing.I like to bicycle on the Ocean P'ky bike path,yet baby carriages and groups of so-called religious Jews walk across it with blatant disregard for others safety and with arrogance.I know conservative and reform Jews who have been treated hostily by certain members of the Orthodox community,since they weren't dressed the same.I do not mistreat others,dislike anti-semites and have spoken against it.I do not accept black racism,or anyone who thinks only of there own people.I'm hoping that the more considerate amongst the Orthodox will take up this issue.
