by the Anti-Defamation League on August 5, along with Marc Dollinger, a member of the Jewish Studies faculty at San Francisco State University whose focus is on Jewish social justice.</p> <p>Dollinger said critical race theory has become politicized because it “threatens White America.” But he said it’s about the system, not individuals personally.</p> <p><a

He’s been invited to talks at Jewish community centers, historical societies and book clubs. He was interviewed by the NFL and by CNN’s Don Lemon. He spoke to German public radio and to a Mormon-Jewish dialogue group.</p> <p>The subject, as always, is Jews and race, or, more specifically, whether white U.S. Jews share the blame for America’s racial injustices. These are weighty themes, and he expounds on them with a ready smile and a folksy demeanor.</p> <p>The nation’s racial reckoning has challenged his own biases, but in this age of polarization, Dollinger remains that rare public scholar who owns up to his own biases with disarming candor.</p> <p><a href="https://religionnews.com/2021/03/12/he-was-shot-down-for-suggesting-white-jews-benefitted-from-white-supremacy-now-hes-more-popular-than-ever/">Read the entire story on the RNS website.</a></p> </div> </div> </div> </div> <p>Tags</p> <div class="tags-item"> <ul class="list-inline"> <li > <a href="/tags/tags/faculty-news" hreflang="en">Faculty in the News</a></li> </ul> </div> </div> </div> Mon, 15 Mar 2021 17:39:50 +0000 Alexis Cabrera 37 at https://jewish.sfsu.edu Controversies about Jews and white supremacy are erasing Jews of color, writes Prof. Marc Dollinger https://jewish.sfsu.edu/controversies-about-jews-and-white-supremacy-are-erasing-jews-color-writes-prof-marc-dollinger <div class="row bs-1col node node--type-news node--view-mode-rss"> <div class="col-sm-12 bs-region bs-region--main"> <div class="field field--name-node-title field--type-ds field--label-hidden field--item"><h1 class="news-title"> Controversies about Jews and white supremacy are erasing Jews of color, writes Prof. Marc Dollinger </h1> </div> <div data-paragraphs-frontend-ui="field_sub_component-36" class="field field--name-field-sub-component field--type-entity-reference-revisions field--label-hidden field--item"> <div class="pl-component pl-component--news-headline-topfold news-wrapper"> <div class="news-author">Author: Mark Dollinger </div> <div class="news-info"> <div class="news-date"> February 28, 2021 </div> </div> </div> </div> <div data-paragraphs-frontend-ui="field_component-36" class="field field--name-field-component field--type-entity-reference-revisions field--label-hidden field--items"> <div class="field--item"><div class="pl-component pl-component--content-basic" > <div class="field field--name-field-p-formatted-content field--type-text-long field--label-hidden field--item"><p>"In December, the Forward published an article about my most recent book, “Black Power, Jewish Politics,” with a headline that mentioned Jews in connection with white supremacy.</p> <p>With those two words — “white supremacy” — the internet lit up.
