Using One’s Own Racial Experience To Have Empathy For Others

Filed under: General — Dana @ 9:00 am



[guest post by Dana]

Last week, Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson found himself in hot water when he posted anti-Semitic quotes on his Instagram page, which were (mistakenly) attributed to Hitler, as well as posting quotes from known anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan. As a result of his posts, Jackson was penalized by the Eagles this week.

Yesterday, entertainer and MTV host Nick Cannon was fired by ViacomCBS because he “promoted hateful speech and spread anti-Semitic conspiracy theories” on-air last month after a guest claimed that Jews were wicked, and Cannon agreed. He also claimed that “Semitic people are black people,” and that “You can’t be anti-Semitic when we are the Semitic people,” as well as citing Louis Farrakhan.

Both men are black, and both have publicly apologized for their bigoted comments.

With that, former ESPN host and senior writer at The Atlantic Jemele Hill has written a deeply honest and insightful essay about Jewish bigotry within the black community. She righteously takes Jackson to task as well. But first, Hill openly addresses her own Hitler stumble, which resulted in what she says was a well deserved week-long suspension:

Like DeSean Jackson, the Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver who is being condemned for posting a fake Adolf Hitler quote on his Instagram feed last week, I too have had an ill-advised Hitler moment.

In 2008, I was a general columnist for ESPN.com, covering the NBA Finals series between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Boston Celtics. Heading into Game 5, I wrote a piece about how it saddened me, as a lifelong Detroit Pistons fan, to see that the Celtics were no longer as widely hated as they had once been. Trying to be funny and whimsical, I drew upon my memories of the Pistons having to beat the Celtics before winning their first NBA championship in 1989. I ended up writing, “Rooting for the Celtics is like saying Hitler was a victim.”

More than a decade later, I still cringe when I think about it. Not only had I severely insulted the Celtics’ fan base, but I had made a joke about the Nazi leader who orchestrated the murder of 6 million Jewish people. I was, of course, aware of the Holocaust, but I had given little thought to the feelings of the Jewish community because, frankly, it wasn’t my own. When others pointed out the insensitivity of my statement, I was mortified. I apologized and wrote an entire column asking for forgiveness.

Hill doesn’t hold back when describing the black community’s long-held stereotypical views of Jewish people, from family elders to the community at large:

Like Jackson, I am Black. And had anyone made a remark trivializing slavery, I would have been incensed. I learned that just because I’m aware of the destruction caused by racism, that doesn’t mean I’m automatically sensitive to other forms of racism, or in this case, anti-Semitism. Black people, too, are capable of being culturally arrogant.

…Stereotypical and hurtful tropes about Jews are widely accepted in the African American community. As a kid, I heard elders in my family say in passing that Jewish people were consumed with making money, and that they “owned everything.” My relatives never dwelled on the subject, and nothing about their tone indicated that they thought anything they were saying was anti-Semitic—not that a lack of awareness would be any excuse. This also doesn’t mean that my family—or other African Americans—are more or less anti-Semitic than others in America, but experiencing the pain of discrimination and stereotyping didn’t prevent them from spreading harmful stereotypes about another group.

Hill also points out that marginalized groups should use their own racial experiences to have understanding for other groups facing similar bigotry:

Black people’s fight for their humanity is unrelated to Jackson’s error, but they must use their own racial experiences to foster empathy for others. Even in his apology, Jackson showed little recognition of what he’d done.

The thirst for liberation and equality can never come at the expense of dehumanizing other marginalized groups—especially at a time when hate crimes against Jews have increased significantly. A record number of anti-Semitic incidents was reported last year.

While I have a quibble or two about the piece, they are really insignificant in light of her clarity and insight. And it’s also irrelevant that we differ politically. This is simply a unique look into a subject that is part of a larger conversation impacting our nation. Read the whole thing.

  3. en he posted anti-Semitic quotes on his Instagram page, which were (mistakenly) attributed attributed to Hitler

    Probably originally a fake quote, but more or less in character. The problem with what DeSean Jackson did, is that he cited it favorably.

    Previously, citing favorably has only been tolerated when it was about socialists. And there’s another one, by Goebbels.

  4. Some twenty or so years ago there was apparently a really interesting book written about the schism between blacks and Jews. I say “apparently” because I didn’t read the book, but I did read a review of it which appeared in I think the New York Times Books section. The authors traced the bad blood to the 1964 Democrat convention when some Southern blacks challenged the all-white delegate slates that Southern states were sending to the convention by electing their own multiracial slates and demanding to be seated. This posed a real challenge to LBJ and other Democrats who were sympathetic to civil rights but didn’t want to lose the votes of Southern Democrats. So in the end, LBJ told the convention delegates to vote in favor of seating the white slates. Jews of course had been very prominent in the civil rights movement up to that point, but since many northeastern states such as New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, et al. had a number of Jewish delegates who voted in favor of seating the white Southern slates as LBJ requested, blacks took that as a major betrayal and that, according to the authors, is when that alliance began to fray.

    Anyway, it’s an interesting thesis. I kind of regret that I didn’t track down that book and read it.

  5. What is striking to me is that DeSean Jackson spent three years at the University of California at Berkeley, one of our nation’s most prestigious higher education institutions, and Nick Cannon it would seem recently graduated from Howard University with a degree in Criminal Justice. So much for the idea that everyone would be enlightened and woke if only we sent them off to college.

    Yeah I don’t remember her being so ‘mortified’ back in the day regarding the Hitler comment, more like defiant and ridiculing people who couldn’t take a joke.

    Anyways, it didn’t stop her later requests for Green Bay fans to throw batteries at ex-Packer Brett Favre or comparing John Calipari to Charles Manson.

    “Jemele Hill, having made a career of race baiting, now pretends to have regrets.”

    This must be the new Jamele, I’m used to the race baiter I used to hear on my sports radio just before I changed stations. She was pretty much a race one-trick pony but it’s been a while since I listened to her for more than 15 seconds.
    __

    Looked to see what she’s been saying lately and here she lays out her thoughts on her profession:

    “Journalism is not a profession of being friends. Journalism is a profession of agitation,”

    https://www.rt.com/usa/491162-jemele-hill-journalism-activism-cnn/

    Her thoughts on Jackson sound much better than most of the bile I’ve heard her expel before so maybe she’s getting it or maybe it’s strategic.

    Maybe next she can retract her ridiculous statement that it’s impossible for NFL owners who support Trump to fight racism.

    Someone should hook her up with some of Joe Biden’s quotes on race.

  12. JVW, I have also read that a significant rift originated between blacks (+PRs) and Jews as a result of the the NYC Public School teacher strike later in 1968. In addition to the usual wage, benefit and class size issues was to what degree residents and parents should have in school hiring and retention. This is what brought out the famed Albert Schanker line about who didnt pay his salary.

    That’s right: there was an interesting article about that in City Journal a few months back. Thanks for the reminder, urbanleftbehind.

    I think I read a review of a different book, narciso. The one you linked to sounds really interesting, but it was published nearly 30 years ago. I wasn’t reading the NYT or any book review sections back then; I was a drunken frat boy sleeping until noon on most Sundays. The book I am thinking about came out 18-20 years ago (I cancelled my Sunday NYT subscription in about 2003 or 2004) and I think was published by an academic press.

    Yeah, kinda strange that didn’t make the post or the link.

    “Our melanin is so powerful and it connects us in a way that the reason why [white people] fear us is because of the lack that they have of it,” said Cannon. “When you have a person that has the lack of pigment, the lack of melanin, they know that they will be annihilated. So, therefore, however they got the power, they have the lack of compassion — melanin comes with compassion, melanin comes with soul.

    The people that don’t have [melanin] are a little less. They may not have had the compassion when they were sent to the mountains of Caucasus when they didn’t have the power of the sun. The sun then started to deteriorate them so then, they’re acting out of fear, they’re acting out of low self-esteem, they’re acting out of a deficiency. So, therefore, the only way that they can act is evil. They have to rob, steal, rape, kill in order to survive. So then, these people that didn’t have what we have — and when I say we, I speak of the melanated people — they had to be savages. They had to be barbaric because they’re in these Nordic mountains. They’re acting as animals so they’re the ones that are actually closer to animals. They’re the ones that are actually the true savages.”

    This is a level of “not getting it” so bad that I have to believe it’s deliberate. From the article:

    These “aspects and assumptions” include but are not limited to “rugged individualism,” respect for authority, being polite, and even punctuality. The graphic continues, claiming that white people place a premium on hard work, competitive drive, the “nuclear family,” objectivity, the “scientific method,” self-reliance, and hope.

    The obvious implication here is that nonwhites (blacks, Latinos, Asians, and others) are monolithic, lawless, impolite, selfish, lazy, apathetic, irrational, backwards, dependent, and hopeless.

    It’s only obvious if you’re a moron. It’s a list of “American white people” cultural attributes. A list of “American black people” or “American hispanic people” cultural attributes would be different, but it wouldn’t be the opposite. Whether or not it’s a good list is a different question.

  24. It’s not so much slavery that incenses blacks, but the 150 years following its end where things improved only in fits and starts and still have not risen to real equality.

    Lynching, disparate justice, Jim Crow, professional exclusion and the lack of a vote well within living memory (including mine). Even later, after the Civil Rights victories things did not change all that much, or all that fast. Watch some TV or film from the supposedly-enlightend 1970’s, or even 80’s, and you will see some really cringe-worthy stuff.

    And, today, there is still not social equality. It’s not blatant or overt most of the time, but I doubt that many white folks fear being pulled over by police, nor would they tolerate police taking actions they often do when they’ve pulled over someone black. As I’ve said before, I was pulled over once when my car had recently been stolen and recovered, and the police thought it was still stolen. If I had been black I suspect the assumptions would have been different. Black friends tell me that it would have been, and then tell me of times when they were treated as criminals by default.

    IS this the same as back when black folk were getting lynched for talking to a white woman? NO, of course not. But that does not mean it’s OK either.

  27. If I really wanted to dwell on the past, I could lament the history of Ireland, where a conquered people were held as serfs on their own land for several hundred years until they forcibly overthrew the oppressors. When the Irish came to America, the same culture of bigotry followed them. You see it still in anti-Catholic laws like the Blaine Amendments, although they’ve long since been repurposed.

    No one alive is responsible for those past actions. Although there are any number of anti-Irish bigots around, particularly in the UK, the Irish in America have achieved the equality that African-Americans still seek. I understand why they’re making a stink.

  29. More on 26… I had a friend and colleague – a black USC grad – who worked in the company’s Pasadena Lab. He passed away about 6 years ago and I truly miss the conversations we had over the years. He would always tell me how tough it was to be a black conservative, especially in SoCal. One discussion I remember was immediately after the Rodney King riots… another colleague – of Chinese descent – was also in on the discussion… they shared a few of their experiences with the LAPD. The experiences were all in fairly innocuous circumstances that ended up being very negative interactions because of inexplicable police attitudes and behavior.

    Knowing both of these gentlemen to be stand-up, honest family men, it gave me more of an appreciation of how others are impacted and left with less appreciation for law enforcement than they would normally have.

    It’s not so much slavery that incenses blacks, but the 150 years following its end where things improved only in fits and starts and still have not risen to real equality.

    It wasn’t fits and starts It was ups and downs.

    This would kind of like a draft:

    Things got better right away (except for a worsening in some places in 1866) Then things started getting worse. The right to cote was lost (but remained in parts of North Carolina ntil 1898. Segregation came in in the 1890s. What can be called pogroms from 1898 to 1923. African americans began leaving the south around 1916, after some businesses in the north, faced with a sharp dropoff in immigration due to the European War sent people to the south to encourage organize migration. That got the ball rolling.

    A slow turnaround began about the mid-1920s, stimulated by the 1920 Census (reapportionment of Congress was prevented but could not be held off indefinitely) and fear and hatred (among some whites) of the second Ku Klux Klan, which was insidiously and secretly planned against and destroyed.

    There was gradual improvement through the 1940s and 1950s, and then massive improvement 1954-1965.

    Meanwhile in the north high crime rates among blacks, started in the 1930s with the selling of heroin in segregated communities combined with police corruption and the appointment of liberal, anti-punishment judges, and really took off starting in the late 1950s (with reduced penalties for juveniles) and really in the mid 1960s just babout the time the Cvil Rigs acts were passed. Migration back to the south began about 1970, although it was relatively small in scale. Sky high high crime rates in “inner cities” and de-policing continued until the early to mid 1990s when HIV infection reduced the number of active criminals, enabling a “virtuous cycle” to get started, but things never got completely satisfactory until the trend began to reverse itself (it was denied) about 2016, and really began to reverse itself in 2020. Thinking was hampered by ideology and spurious reasoning. Democrats fell over themselves in the late 2010s and in 2020 to do things that would allow crime rates to increase.

    Lynching,

    Tis was extremely high during reconstruction, and remained at a high level after wards. Began a big decline by the 1930s and was virtually extinct by the mid 1960s.

    disparate justice,

    a problem

    Jim Crow,

    circa 1890 to circa 1965. In Oklahoma it didn’t start until after Oklahoma became a state in 1907 and there were some cities further north that instituted legally mandated residential segregation around World War I. The most segregated city in the north was Chicago, starting around 1893, and this made a lot of other evils possible. The 1954 Supreme Court case involved educational segregation in Topeka, Kansas.

    professional exclusion

    circa 1918 to circa 1948 I think.

    and the lack of a vote well within living memory (including mine).

    Till about 1965. There were actually always some registered in the south. But only the Democratic primary counted. Ad there were fewer registered there.

    In a few places, like Memphis, Tennessee (under Boss Crump) and Bill Clinton’s hometown of Hot Springs, Arkansas, they could vote but they were taken to the polls by political machines. In Hot Springs, Arkansas, their poll taxes were paid for by the machine, which was run by one of the key founders of organized crime in America, Owen Vincent “Owney the Killer” Madden (1891-1965.) Bill Clinton’s step uncle, Buick dealer Raymond Clinton, was an important member of the machine and Bill Clinton himself probably knew Owney Madden and raised money from him (Madden was trying to help him out)Madden probably made sure Bill Clinton got to meet and be photographed with JFK in 1963.

    Even later, after the Civil Rights victories things did not change all that much, or all that fast.

    High crime rates, and political isolation, and bad political representation, occasioned in large part by high crime rates.

    Watch some TV or film from the supposedly-enlightend 1970’s, or even 80’s, and you will see some really cringe-worthy stuff.

    I think the Wire was shot even later.

    and, today, there is still not social equality. It’s not blatant or overt most of the time, but I doubt that many white folks fear being pulled over by police, nor would they tolerate police taking actions they often do when they’ve pulled over someone black.

    A particular problem seems to be (in some police forces) a car with an unusual driver. Probably without even checking to see if it had been reported stolen.

    Or this case I read about in the newspaper. Car gets stopped for whatever reason, gun is discovered, police ask ages of people in the car, and say to someone who is 19, that he’s the oldest so gun belongs to him. He he gets jailed, is given $5,000 bail, after a month pleads guilty to get out of jail even though Legal Aid attorney tells him he has a good case. That’s what you get with assembly line justice, which you get with a high crime rate.

    AH, yes, the knee-jerk response of the terminally forgetful hack. The southern bigots, required to temper their views in the Democrat Party attempted to change to the GOP and some (Thurmond) were sucessful. But even they had to watch their mouths. Most of them remained in the Democrat Party until they died out. Covert bigotry is not a lot better than overt bigotry.

    After 1965, the only GOP presidential candidate who could be said to court the southern vote was Richard Nixon with a “law and order” message. And he lost AL, MS, GA, LA and AK to Wallace anyway (and narrowly won TN, SC & NC with less than 40% of the vote (Wallace was 2nd in each)).

    After that, no Republican Presidential candidate gave even code-word support to the racists, while that grand wizard was still the Dems goto guy in the Senate.
