Racism!

Racism!

 

by Reb Gutman Locks

 

     Besides the wonderful comments that the video Jews Should Marry Jews  receives, it also receives many extremely negative, even violent comments.

 

      “Racist!” they charge. “The nazis [y’ms] said the same thing!” and many evil comments which I will not repeat.

 

     So the question stands: Is telling Jews that they should marry only Jews racism? Is telling Jews how wonderful the Jewish people are, racism? 

 

Race defined: a human race is defined as a group of people with certain common inherited features that distinguish them from other groups of people. Today, scientists say that there are three major races in the world: Black, White, and Asian.

 

     According to this, Jews are not a race, because there are black, white, and yellow Jews. Then, what are we? We are a people, a people descendant from Abraham and Sarah. We are tribes, all decedents of Jacob, Abraham and Sarah’s grandson, and although all mankind are brothers, Jews are more closely related to each other than to the other Nations of the world.

 

Racism defined: The belief that all members of one race are inferior or superior to another race; prejudice, discrimination directed against someone of a different race.

 

Gutman’s response to the negative comments:     

     There is a wonderful rainbow in creation, and each color of that rainbow is unique, and beautiful. It would be a horrible loss to merge all of those colors together, and lose those individual distinctions. When a Black man yells out, “Black is beautiful!” no one charges him with racism. But when a Jew points out that even though only one out of 516 people in the world are Jewish, 1 out of 4 Nobel Prizes winners are Jewish, there are screams of racism.

     The video does not say that other races or tribes are evil, as racists do. The video says, when you marry someone from your own people, your people survive. And Jewish survival is not only good for the Jewish People; it is good for the entire world.
