United States Senators:
Honorable Barbara Boxer, Diane Feinstein, Norman Coleman,
Frank Lautenberg, Joseph Lieberman, Russell Feingold,
Herb Kohl, Carl Levin, Charles Schumer, Arlen
Specter, and Ronald Wyden:
Dear Honorable Senators:
The Associated Press, reporter Frederick J. Frommer, recently wrote
an article (November 30, 2002) titled Jewish senators find friendly turf
in upper midwest. Reporter Frommer mentioned that there are now eleven
members serving in the U.S. Senate who are Jewish. Congratulations to
all of you. There is no doubt that each of you have worked hard, won the
respect of the voters in your areas, and succeeded in being elected to
one of the most respected offices in our Government; a member of the U.S.
I am writing to you because I believe that a very serious situation has
developed that you all should be made aware because in many cases it affects
our school children. We are deeply concerned that if it is not addressed
soon it may drive a divisive and deepening wedge between the European
American and Jewish communities of America. We are also studying attitudes
and programs of other groups in American who may contribute to this same
As one of the founders of the European/American Issues Forum (E/AIF-1997)
I served as President until May of 2002 when I stepped down for health
reasons. During my five years as President I found an alarming number
of organizations in America who reject the idea that European American
(whites) are also victims of racial animus, or who promote the idea that
European American (whites) are the exclusive perpetrators of racial hatred
and all other racial/ethnic groups are their victims. As you know, that
is not true.
What's frightfully troubling is that the most effective groups promoting
that false notion about European American (whites) seem to have Jewish
leadership at the head of their organization. These groups are promoting
this false idea through books and videos, some of which are distributed
to schools and are also used for hate crime training of police officers
and during community educational efforts regarding hatred in our communities.
I understand that you may be quite troubled with my making such an accusation--however,
I respectfully ask that you review the material I am presenting to you
with a clear and open mind. I am prepared to explain and document all
of these allegations. My experiences enumerated below are quite troubling.
The organizations and brief comments about each follows:
1. Anti-Defamation League (ADL)
(a) The ADL has published a book, along with Barnes and Noble, titled
Hate Hurts- How Children Learn and Unlearn Prejudice that is being used
in our schools that stereotypes European American (whites) as the purveyors
of racial animus and the perpetrators of hate crimes, and all other groups
are their victims. ( Attachment A).
(b). The ADL promotes the showing of a video titled Not in Our Home Town
that portrays European American (whites) in a similar manner.
(c). The European/American Issues Forum has filed claims of bigotry and
discrimination against the San Francisco ADL with the San Francisco Human
Rights Commission; once in 1997 and again in 2002.
2. Levi Strauss Corporation (Foundation). (a). The Levi Strauss
Corporation (Foundation) funded a booklet titled Cause for Concern: Hate
Crimes in America that recognizes all major racial/ethnic groups as victims
of Hate Crimes except European American (whites). The booklet was written
by the Leadership Conference Education Fund and the Leadership Conference
on Civil Rights, Washington D.C. based organizations. ( Attachment B )
3. Leadership Conference Education Fund (LCEF) and the Leadership
Conference on Civil Rights (LCCR). (a) Following President William Clinton's
1997 White House Conference on Hate Crimes a major New York corporation
provided a $100,000 grant for the LCEF and the LCCR to develop a web site
to fight racial hatred. They posted the booklet, Cause of Concern: Hate
Crimes in America on their web site; repeated requests by E/AIF to the
White House, LCEF and LCCR did not result in correcting the false stereotyping
of European America (whites) on their web site.
4. Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) (a) The SPLC published a
book titled teaching tolerance by Sara Bullard that is being used in our
schools throughout America that stereotypes European American (whites)
as the purveyors of racial animus and the primary perpetrators of hate
crimes, and all other groups are their victims. ( Attachment C).
b) The SPLC published Responding to Hate at School along similar lines.
See Hate Revisited article by John Horgan, San Mateo County Times, December
12, 2001. (Attachment D). Well respected African American Journalist Clarence
Page's article confirms that the myth persists that hate laws were directed
against whites to protect minorities. [Washington Times, July 19,
2002 Page A17]. (Attachment D-1)
(c) The SPLC is associated with a video titled The Shadow of Hate that
is being used in our schools that stereotypes European American (whites)
as the purveyors of racial animus and the perpetrators of hate crimes,
and all other groups are their victims. (Attachment E.).
5. Intergroup Clearinghouse
(a) The Executive Director of San Francisco's Intergroup ClearingHouse,
Jill Tregor was quoted as stating â€œwhite crime victims are using hate
crime laws to enhance penalties against minorities, who already experience
prejudice within the judicial system. (Hate Crimes--Criminal Law and Identity
Politics--James B. Jacobs and Kimberly Potter, Oxford University Press
1998 pg. 17.). What drives her opinion to a level of absurdity is that
Intergroup Clearinghouse successfully applied for and was granted a $50,000
grant from the City and County of San Francisco to advocate for ALL victims
of hate crimes after she made that bigoted statement.
6. Simon Weisenthal Center, Los Angeles
(a). The Simon Weisenthal Center (LA) provided a video presentation on
hate crimes at the Sept. 13-15 1999 Hate Crimes Symposium in Sacramento,
Ca., hosted by the California State University, Sacramento, and California's
Police Officers Standards and Training Commission. The video almost exclusively
depicts European Americans as the primary purveyors of racial animus and
the perpetrators of hate crimes along with the usual overemphasis of Nazi
and KKK themes. Repeated requests to the Center for a copy of the video
were met without success. Key note speaker at the Symposium was US Attorney
General Janet Reno. Governor Gray Davis and California Attorney General
General Bill Lockyer were also guest speakers. I attended the Symposium.
( Attachment F).
7. Sojourn to the Past
. (a) Sojourn to the Past is a program developed by a San Mateo Union
High School District teacher; Jeff Steinberg. Mr. Steinberg
offers high school students the opportunity of a ten day tour of locations
throughout the south that were the scene of civil rights violations against
African American. It is clear that the content of his tour is the truth
about civil rights violations against African Americans, however the problem
is that it violates state law because it does not tell the truth, the
whole truth and nothing but the truth. He excludes civil rights violations
against all other groups. Mr. Steinberg's program violates California
moral and education code sections that require that the material presented
to students is to be objective and current. All racial groups have suffered
civil rights violations, but the program excludes European Americans and
other racial groups who were victims of racial animus. The program is
highly emotional and seeks to not only indoctrinate students but it seeks
an outcome of making them into advocates for African American civil rights
while condemning European Americans as the perpetrators of all racial
animus. Those outcomes are outrageous and do not belong in our school
system. As a teacher, Mr. Steinberg should know better.
8. AJCommittee and Affirmative Action.
a) This time around, however, AJCommittee [American Jewish Committee]
will draft a brief supporting the University of Michigan law school and
undergraduate affirmative action programs now being challenged before
the high court. The National Council of Jewish Women plans to sign onto
a brief in support of the university's policies, and the Reform movement
is likely to do so as well, said Mark Pelavin, associate director
of the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism.
The question is: will the AJCommittee also support proportional Christian
and European American enrollment whenever they are under-representated
in colleges and universities?
9. Facing History and Ourselves Program Director Jack Weinstein
of Facing History and Ourselves was a guest speaker at Woodside High School,
Woodside California, as part of a program by the Racism Action Group organized
by Sequoias Union High School District on January 31, 2000. Mr. Weinstein
presented a documentary video that in my opinion stereotyped European
Americans as the primary purveyors of racial animus and the perpetrators
of hate crimes and all other groups are their victims. That is simply
not true. Conclusion In conclusion we respectfully request that Senate
staff members be assigned to evaluate and verify our allegations. We would
then recommend the formation of a committee representing your offices
and including members of our organization be formed to flush out ideas
that may help to alleviate this situation and build bridges between European
American and the Jewish communities rather than driving a wedge between
Thank you for your kind attention.

of African-American civil rights organizations like the NAACP, at:
Chapter 20, pt. 2
For decades Blacks were used by Jewish generals as the front-line troops
in litigation battles over discrimination and minority rights. Louis
Marshall had even begun, in 1909, to litigate NAACP cases himself,
and he later served on that organization's Board of Directors. [IVERS,
p. 40] With Jewish leaders safely nestled and hidden in the heart of what
was publicly known as a Black organization, "in the South no small number
of African-Americans feared that forcing whites to implement such radical
legal doctrines would intensify their resentment towards blacks." [IVERS,
"High public profile as Jews was anathema," notes David Levering Lewis
about decades of Jewish civil rights involvement, "Support of and
participation in the Afro-American civil rights movement was seen ...
as a stratagem exactly meeting Jewish needs ... [LEWIS, p. 554-555] ...
Upper class Jews ... increasingly encouraged the new Afro-American leadership
... which employed agitation and publicity as principal weapons to force
the glacial pace of civil rights. By establishing a presence at the center
of the civil rights movement with intelligence, money, and influence,
elite Jews and their delegates could fight anti-Semitism by remote control."
[LEWIS, p. 555]
In academe, notes Irving Horowitz, "while other minorities such
as blacks, women, and gay-rights activists take a high profile, the Jewish
group has opted for a low profile." [HOROWITZ, I., p. 91] A good case
in point is Jewish social scientist Franz Boas, often called the
"father of anthropology." As Marshall Hyatt notes, "Feeling that a scientific
investigation of race prejudice centered on Jews would leave him open
to charges of subjectivity, Boas used Afro-Americans as a substitute ...
He surmised that if he could abolish racism as it pertained to blacks,
Jews would also benefit to some extent. Boas was guilty of ethnic chauvinism.
By his own example and his pronouncements, he demonstrated that Jews had
progressed under persecution. He did not make the same claim for blacks
... He sought to focus on racism itself, using blacks as a surrogate for
his real concern [Jews]." [HYATT, M., 1990, p. 97-98]
The Black civil rights movement has provided Jewish nationalism plenty
of hiding places over the years. Nathan Glazer even used it as
an apologetic for the standard charge against Jews of dual national loyalty.
"Some Jews had always been troubled by the problem of dual loyalty," he
admits, and then leaves the essence of this "troubling problem" hanging,
merely excusing it away by noting that Black civil rights militancy (and
its "distinctive group interests") "made it easier for Jews, too, directly
to support the interests of the state of Israel." [GLAZER, AMERICAN, p.
"The conventional wisdom among Jews," says Henry Feingold, "has long since
concluded that the animosity toward African-Americans has served as a
major deflector of hatred against themselves. Thus, a group that has inadvertently
served as a shield for American Jewry is generating what may ultimately
be identified as the most indigenous form of American anti-Semitism."
[FEINGOLD, p. 77] "All the bigotry and hatred focused on the Black man,"
complained Malcolm X, "keeps off the Jew a lot of heat that would be on
him otherwise." [GOULD, p. 565] Barnet Litvinoff noted the comparable
situation in Great Britain: "A million colored people, mostly from the
Caribbean Islands, India, and Pakistan, have arrived in Britain in recent
years, ... providing new targets for the Englishman's prejudices ... Each
one has unwittingly done the Jews a service. He has diverted attention
from one kind of minority to another." [LITVINOFF, B., p. 170]
Even in far left-wing American political organizations like the Communist
Party, in the 1960s Blacks began rejecting Jewish hegemony. "The period
of Jewish dominance in the Communist Party," says Harold Cruse, a Black
intellectual and former communist, "... culminated in the emergence of
Herbert Aptheker and other assimilated Jewish communists, who assumed
the mantle of spokesmanship on Negro affairs, thus burying the Negro radical
potential deeper and deeper in the slough of white intellectual paternalism."
[CRUSE, p. 147]
