A pitched war of words is being waged between prominent African Americans and Jewish Americans over how best to respond to increasing racism in both the US and Israel, egged on respectively and collectively by Donald Trump and Benjamin Netanyahu. Nearly absent in this conversation are the lived experiences of black folks who actually inhabit Jewish spaces – in the USA, in Israel and in the occupied Palestinian territories. An examination of the complex relationship history between these groups – Blacks and Jews, and Black Jews – sheds much-needed light on the treatment meted out to communities of color under Israeli ethnocracy, foremost among them indigenous Palestinians.
