Great article on how White Jews have become just White in America, benefiting from systemic and structural racism, especially in housing policy, over the 20th century.

My grandparents were poor in tenements in NYC, attending Black and Jewish schools. My grandmother always used to boast about attending the same high school around the same time as Colin Powell.

By my generation we attended white, wealthy schools in suburban NYC, split between New Jersey and Long Island.

Anti-semitism continues to ferment in the background and is alive and well among white supremacist movements in America, but that doesn’t mean that my family and I have not benefited tremendously from the privilege of becoming white.
