and i have noticed there is a rise in tumblr bloggers pointing out that “jews had a VERY LARGE ROLE in the transatlantic slave trade”
gentiles never sit back and take into consideration that stating jews having a VERY LARGE ROLE in anything are often buzzwords for antisemitic canard
Nevermind that this VERY LARGE ROLE pales in comparison to the role Christians had in the slave trade. If a Jew does something terrible, it reflects on all Jews, but fuck if that applies to any majorities.
except it is categorically untrue that jews had a large role in slave trade. a small handful of sephardi jews in the usa =/= a large jewish role in the slave trade.
This is a HUGE anti-semitic myth that stems from a book called The Secret Relationship Between Blacks And Jews. Henry Louis Gates Jr. called it “The Bible of new anti-semitism.” It’s been debunked multiple times over the years, and is generally considered a complete fabrication. It’s really disturbing to me to see several prominent people on tumblr repeat this myth to an impressionable audience.
