Avraham over at Protocols posts a letter to the editor about the Deah V'dibbur article I commented on
here and here.
The editor's response is quite week though…
"Thank you for your thoughtful comments. Racism is certainly not Jewish. For example, anyone can become a Jew regardless of race, as long as he or she meets the requirements. Africa was chosen and referred to as it was not because its residents are unequivocally black -- which of course they are -- but because they are unequivocally primitive. Africa and the savages who live there were chosen as symbols of primitivism not as symbols of a race. Thus, I do not think that the comments are racist."It's really a shame that "goy-bashing" has become so acceptable in the "Chareidi" world that otherwise tolerant people -- I'm giving the editor the benefit of the doubt here-- will justify it.
