It appears that our blog entry, Why Jews Can No Longer Trust the Anti-Defamation League, and the community pushback against racism being colorized as if the definition was written by Black Lives Matter, has been heard.
It appears that the ADL can’t even decide on the definition of racism and needed to publish an “interim definition” which is a cruel joke on people who have experienced oppression and persecution for over 4,000 years.
Weasel words are not the answer and change nothing!
The traditional definition.
"Racism: The belief that a particular race is superior or inferior to another, that a person’s social and moral traits are predetermined by his or her inborn biological characteristics.
The “new” definition (July 2020)
Racism: The marginalization and/or oppression of people of color based on a socially constructed racial hierarchy that privileges white people.
The “newest” definition” (February 2022)
Racism: (interim definition): Racism occurs when individuals or institutions show more favorable evaluation or treatment of an individual or group based on race or ethnicity. (Prof. Robert Livingston, The Conversation). For more about this definition, click here.
Where Jews have traditionally supported center-left viewpoints, the current state of the ADL marks a hard shift leftward toward self-hatred and the need to atone for the past racist behavior.
.And where the powerful Anti-Defamation League once stood as a bulwark against the anti-Semitic persecution of Jews for decades., now, not so much. I say screw the ADL – they are no longer worthy of support.
