Bloodsuckers in the Black Ghetto – 50 Years After the Kerner Commission

The Jewish Store Owners in Black Ghettos: A Long, Long History of Exploitation

Much comment is being made about the 50th Anniversary of the Kerner Commission Report. Officially, it was called The National Advisory Commission on Civil Disorders and was established by President Lyndon B. Johnson to investigate the causes of the 1967 race riots in America’s inner cities. Jews are not mentioned as being a cause of the Black riots, but Jews are most assuredly discussed in the 426-page report in Chapter 8, where it refers to “ghetto merchants”:

Ghetto residents believe they are “exploited” by local merchants; and evidence substantiates some of these beliefs. A study conducted in one city by the Federal Trade Commission showed that distinctly higher prices were charged for goods sold in ghetto stores than in other areas.

Lack of knowledge regarding credit purchasing creates special pitfalls for the disadvantaged. In many states garnishment practices compound these difficulties by allowing creditors to deprive individuals of their wages without hearing or trial.

The Honorable Minister Farrakhan made the VERY SAME assessment as the Kerner Commission’s evaluation of these exploitative inner city merchants and ACCURATELY referred to them as “bloodsuckers.” Jack Nusan Porter, a Jewish sociologist, identified these bloodsucking merchants as being primarily Jewish, in his article titled “Mr. Goldberg and John Henry: The Relationship Between Afro-Americans and American Jews“:

The common stereotype of Jews owning the businesses in Black ghettos is based on solid evidence, not fantasy. Jews in the East and Midwest own a disproportionate number of businesses in Black areas. [Two Jewish researchers have shown] that some 40 percent of the stores are owned by Jews. [Another] study of 458 merchants in 15 cities (14 of the largest plus Gary, Indiana but not including Los Angeles, Miami, Houston, or any other Southern city) had the following religious breakdown of retail merchants: 37.9% were Jewish; 36.0% were Protestant; and 22.9% were Catholic… The breakdown by religion, when race is considered, increases the number: 51.3% of the white merchants are Jewish; 18.7% are Protestant; and 27.0% are Catholic.”

Frederick Law Olmsted

This economic rape of Black communities by mainly Jewish merchants and peddlers goes as far back as the slavery era and is detailed in The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews, Vol. 2. The noted writer Frederick Law Olmsted observed in 1856 that

“A swarm of Jews, within the last ten years, has settled in nearly every Southern town, many of them men of no character, opening cheap clothing and trinket shops; ruining, or driving out of business, many of the old retailers, and engaging in an unlawful trade with simple negroes, which is found very profitable.”

After the alleged “emancipation” of Black slaves in 1863, the economic exploitation nonetheless remained the same. Russian novelist Fyodor Dostoyevsky was a keen observer of 19th-century Russian society, where Russian peasantry had very much the same relationship with their Jewish merchant class as Blacks had with them in the American South. His 1877 indictment was biting indeed:

Fyodor Dostoyevsky

“[T]hey have already leaped en masse upon the millions of liberated Negroes, and have already taken a grip upon them in their, the Jews’, own way, by means of their [everlasting] ‘gold pursuit’ and by taking advantage of the inexperience and vices of the exploited tribe….The Negroes have now been liberated from the slave-owners[, but] they will not last because the Jews…will jump at this new little victim….The Negroes are a treasure for the Jews.”

Mark Twain, the iconic chronicler of Deep Southern culture, concurred. As he saw it:

Mark Twain

“In the Cotton States, after the war, the simple and ignorant Negroes made the crops for the white planter on shares. The Jew came down in force, set up shop on the plantation, supplied all the Negro’s wants on credit, and at the end of the season was proprietor of the Negro’s share of the present crop and of part of the share of his next one. Before long, the whites detested the Jew, and it is doubtful if the Negro loved him.”

In his book The Souls of Black Folk, Black scholar W.E.B. Du Bois wrote of this Jewish exploitation. He observed that Jews had so dominated the post-slavery economy that he concluded harshly that “The Jew is the heir of the slave-baron.” Think about that.

As Blacks migrated to the inner cities to find jobs, Jewish merchants shadowed them. In 1895, a reporter for the New York Daily Tribune observed a scene in the “Negro quarter” of New York City where “the Hebrews across the street stand out in front of their shops and impress the [c]heapness of their goods upon everybody within earshot.” In Harlem, Blumstein’s department store had nothing but Black customers but refused to hire Blacks in anything but menial jobs from the time it opened in 1896 until Black public protests forced a change in 1930.

The Atlantic magazine’s Jewish editor Jeffrey Goldberg just acknowledged his people’s hateful history:

Often in the New South, success of Jewish merchants depended upon winning Black trade. Jewish merchants appeared more courteous…than fellow white merchants. Blacks were often the victims of sales pressure when Jews refused to accept no-sale for an answer.” The process known as ‘Jewing Down’ is when the Black customer was fooled into thinking he was negotiating a better price. It concluded when “Jewish merchant received his desired price and the naïve Black went away with the over-priced goods.”

James Baldwin remembered the Jewish merchants: “[A]ll of them were exploiting us, and that was why we hated them.” At the end of each business day, Jews would close up shop and Blacks would watch them leave the neighborhood with their money.

Highly successful Jewish retailers, like Stein Mart based in Greenville, Mississippi, practiced Jim Crow exclusion even after the Civil Rights Movement. In fact, Jewish department stores had become so well known for their racist policies against their own Black customers that the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King and civil rights activists often targeted them with their protests.

James Baldwin

The Kerner Report was thoroughly ignored by the very government that commissioned it, and a succession of immigrants have followed the exploitative Jewish model for their own enrichment. The Koreans are the latest with 9,000 Korean-owned beauty supply stores alone syphoning the bulk of the billion-dollar Black hair care industry. And because these revenue streams have been so lucrative for Jews and their immigrant followers, they have worked tirelessly to destroy any Black leader that advocates that Blacks follow their self-help model. Those leaders that would disrupt that revenue flow [aka blood sucking] are known to Jews as “Black Hitlers” and “anti-Semites.” 

In the end, the lofty recommendations of the Kerner Commission for Black uplift will never be enacted until Blacks themselves take charge and follow The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan in his call to “Make Our Own Communities Safe and Decent Places to Live.”

 


 

 

ADL Tweets Honored Two Men Who Sound Just Like Farrakhan!

Both of the ADL’s Black History Month Tweets Honored
Two Men Who Sound Like Farrakhan!

The ONLY TWO Black History Month 2018 tweets by the ADL’s Jonathan Greenblatt honored two men whose religious views are far more aligned with Farrakhan’s than with the ADL’s. If he knew what they REALLY believed Greenblatt would call Frederick Douglass and W.E.B. Du Bois “haters” and “anti-Semites”:

 

FREDERICK DOUGLASS:

“Between the Christianity of this land and the Christianity of Christ, I recognize the widest possible difference—so wide that to receive the one as good, pure, and holy, is of necessity to reject the other as bad, corrupt, and wicked. To be the friend of the one is of necessity to be the enemy of the other. I love the pure, peaceable, and impartial Christianity of Christ; I therefore hate the corrupt, slave-holding, women-whipping, cradle-plundering, partial and hypocritical Christianity of this land. Indeed, I can see no reason but the most deceitful one for calling the religion of this land Christianity…”


W.E.B. Du Bois

The erudite Du Bois devoted nearly all of his 95 years to the uplift of Black people. While in Georgia he surveyed the businesses, mills, and factories and came to a startling conclusion: “The Jew is the heir of the slave-baron.” He spoke of the exploitation of Blacks by the “shrewd and unscrupulous Jews” and penned what was one of the first written eyewitness testimonies describing the true exploitative nature of the Black–Jewish relationship.

When Du Bois published these observations in a book called The Souls of Black Folks, he was called an “anti-Semite,” but a government study confirmed that Du Bois was spot on. The report revealed that in the middle of Black Georgia, “Nine-tenths of the storekeepers in Dougherty County are Jewish merchants—some Russian and German Jews, but most of them Polish Jews.”

Prominent Jews then pressured Du Bois to change the word “Jew” to “foreigner” or “immigrant.” They didn’t deny the truth of his observation, but demanded that he conceal this critical Jewish role from his Black readers. Even today one can find copies of the book with these sleight-of-hand variations of the original words. Read more in The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews.
