Many Jews have taken pride in their work to break down barriers between ethnic groups. From the murders of Andrew Goodman and Michael Schwerner, who were lynched by the KKK, alongside their black colleague James Chaney, through to Searchlight, whose first editor was Maurice Ludmer, Jews have been over-represented in efforts to build harmony and cohesion between this world’s many communities. So it seems, Jews are able to bring White and Asian people together, not by dint of anything that they do, but by their very existence. The JC reports:
North Manchester police are investigating an antisemitic assault on a 16-year-old boy as he walked home with his family from synagogue on Shabbat. Witnesses saw one white and one Asian man shouting racist abuse at passers-by from a black car parked on Kings Road in Prestwich. “They then got out of the car,” said one witness. “I saw one of them smack the boy in front of his mother and two sisters. “The attacker fell as he punched and, rather embarrassingly, his trousers fell down.” The car was later seen following two other young Jewish boys. Police say the victim suffered injuries to his eye and mouth and are treating the incident as racially aggravated.
