Rabbi Barr: Racism and Anti-semitism

DeSean Jackson’s Hitler moment—and Nick Cannon’s anti-Semitic comments —showed that Black Americans’ experience of racism doesn’t automatically immunize us toward other forms of hate. Many African Americans online went to defend Cannon and Deshwn Jackson. Deshawn and Nick have both gone on to apologize. My conversation with Rabbi Barr of Beth Adam explores the complicated relationship between Jewish and African Americans and how we can learn and grow together from this moment. (48:59)
