    For the moment, a Jewish sports franchise owner is the most prominent racist in the United States.
    Donald Sterling’s conduct serves are a reminder that “the illusion of lockstep black-Jewish solidarity
    on liberal political coalition-building has long masked the reality of white Jewish privilege and
    investment in white supremacy.”

    Anti-black racism among white Jewish people is a seldom discussed aspect of the complicated arc
    of black-Jewish relations in the U.S.”


    Every Sunday for the past several years the mug of real estate mogul/slumlord and L.A. Clippers
    owner Donald Sterling has commanded prime ad space in the Los Angeles Times. Touting Sterling’s
    philanthropy, these ads often feature grinning photos of prominent African American politicians,
    religious leaders and other glad-handing public figures who’ve received hefty donations from his
    financial empire. After TMZ revealed a recording of Sterling’s racist comments about black people to
    girlfriend V. Stiviano, President Obama and other dignitaries were swift to condemn him. On Monday
    it was “shockingly” revealed that Sterling, who is Jewish, went the extra mile with his racism in the
    recording, contending that “the blacks are treated like dogs” in Israel to Stiviano. Responding to her
    criticism of this claim, Sterling reiterated that “the black Jews” are “less than” white Jews and that
    that is the way it should be.

    Anti-black racism among white Jewish people is a seldom discussed aspect of the complicated arc of
    black-Jewish relations in the U.S.Yet Sterling’s comments are noteworthy because they not only
    highlight the white supremacist bent of Israeli anti-African sentiment but the social construction of
    Jewish whiteness. Echoing rancher Cliven Bundy’s recent references to blacks thriving under slavery,
    Sterling expressed the paternalistic view that he “supports” blacks on the team by giving them
    clothes, houses and cars. He then blasts Stiviano for comparing anti-black racism and discrimination to
    the Jewish Holocaust. Implicit in this shutdown is the notion that Jewish suffering under the Holocaust
    precludes consideration of how white Jews have benefited from institutional and systemic racism.


    Sterling reiterated that “the black Jews” are “less than” white Jews and that that is the way it
    should be.”

    Jews are White people and calling them Jews like they're not White like the rest of them is what makes them a special class. There is not special about Whites thinking they belong to a special class they're just proud of White Supremacy and Racism.
