White Supremacy in a Jewish Man: Robert Moses of New York


Robert Moses: America’s Greatest Power Broker

The biography of Robert Moses is titled The Power Broker for good reason. There is no one in the twentieth century that exercised more power than this largely unknown Jewish city planner. Nearly every construction project of note in the city and much of the state of New York was built by permission and oversight of Robert Moses. The expressways, the bridges, the parkways, the public housing projects, the playgrounds, the parks with zoos and skating rinks, the golf courses, the beaches and even the dam at Niagra were all built under his authority. No mere politician, or combination of politicians, could match the raw power wielded by Robert Moses over New York.

Moses was also a vicious racist whose lengthy résumé is a veritable textbook of how one city planner purposely creates ghettos, slums, and blight along purely racial lines.

  • When Moses built housing for poor people, writes Caro, “he built housing bleak, sterile, cheap—expressive of patronizing condescension in every line.” And he built it in locations that “contributed to the ghettoization of the city, dividing up the city by color and income.”
  • Moses threw out of their homes 250,000 persons—more people than lived in Albany or Chattanooga, or in Spokane, Akron, Mobile, Nashville or Sacramento, “a disproportionate share of them were black, Puerto Rican—and poor.”robert_moses_with_battery_bridge_model
  • He restricted the use of state parks by poor and lower-middle-class families by limiting access to the parks by rapid transit. He instructed an aide to design the bridges across his new parkways low—too low for buses to pass. Even Governor Roosevelt, the future president, wouldn’t interfere when he found out that “Moses was discouraging Negroes from using many of his state parks.”According to Caro,

For Negroes, whom he [Moses] considered inherently ‘dirty,’ there were further measures. Buses needed permits to enter state parks; buses chartered by Negro groups found it very difficult to obtain permits, particularly to Moses’ beloved Jones Beach; most were shunted to parks many miles further out on Long Island. And even in these parks, buses carrying Negro groups were shunted to the furthest reaches of the parking areas. And Negroes were discouraged from using ‘white’ beach areas….

  • Moses was convinced that Blacks did not like cold water; the temperature at the pool at Jones Beach was deliberately icy to keep Blacks out. To discourage “colored” people from using the Thomas Jefferson Pool, Moses, as he had done so successfully at Jones Beach, employed only white lifeguards and attendants.
  • Moses poured tens of millions of dollars into creating new parks in New York for whites, but claimed he could do nothing for inner-city areas where Blacks lived.
  • Moses deliberately spent $30 million less on Riverside Park in the areas adjacent to the Black and Latino neighborhoods. “He added 132 acres to the parts of the park most likely to be used by white people—but not one acre to the part of the park most likely to be used by black people.”
  • Moses built Riverside Park in Manhattan and lined the pathways with decorative wrought-iron trellises in curling, wavy designs. But in the Harlem section—and only therethe wrought iron is in the form of monkeys.
  • The largest public works project since the construction of the pyramids of Egypt entailed the building of New Yorkstate’s infrastructure. And Blacks were almost entirely excluded from working on the project except as menials. Between Robert Moses’ racism, and the exclusion policies of Samuel Gompers’ unions, the building of modern-day New York was practically a “whites only” operation.

The list of crimes against Blacks and Latinos committed by this one Jewish man Robert Moses is actually endless (Caro’s Pulitzer Prize-winning book is 1,300 pages), but the fact that the hundreds of thousands of jobs created by the massive construction projects were denied to Blacks and Latinos must be considered one of the greatest racial crimes of the century.
