Jews identify with minorities

Yo get with it, boy.

JTA:

Jews are likelier to agree with black and Hispanics than with whites when it comes to race, a survey found.
Conducted in September and October by the Global Strategy Group for the Foundation for Ethnic Understanding, the survey found that Jews and Hispanics are likelier than whites to see immigration as a positive; and that Jews join Hispanics and blacks in believing that ethnic groups do not mix enough, and that race relations are poor.
Solid majorities of Jews, black and Hispanics believe President Bush has done too little to improve race relations, while only 45 percent of whites believe that’s true.
The response of American Jewry reaffirms that this community is more sensitized and more realistic than is white America about the realities of racism and discrimination,” the foundation said in a statement. The foundation, led by Rabbi Marc Schneier and hip-hop impresario Russell Simmons, promotes intergroup relations.
