Whiter Shade of Pale: Making the Case for Jewish Presence in the Multicultural Classroom
Rubin, Daniel Ian
International Journal of Multicultural Education, v19 n2 p131-145 2017
Despite over 4,000 years of persecution, American Jews and antisemitism continue to be overlooked in university multicultural and social justice classroom discussions. This is due to many factors, such as the misconceptions that Jews are solely a religious group, are White and have completely assimilated into American culture, and are economically successful. Jews are a distinctive group in the United States who continue to experience racism and oppression. In order to validate the racism and discrimination of Jews in the United States, university multicultural and social justice programs must begin to discuss the issues pertaining to antisemitism.
