Black antisemitism is a real problem

Black antisemitism is a real problem

Another antisemitic attack here in Crown Heights. The assailant was a black man AGAIN. When are we going to start dealing with black antisemitism?

Lots of visitors
Lots of young children coming from Yeshivos staying with friends relatives or strangers all over Crown Heights.
Especially after an evening program they have to walk back to their hosts house ALONE? Sometimes where they are staying is quite a distance. What is Criwn Heights doing to keep these people and CHILDREN Safe?

Few months ago, I was walking on Eastern Parkway on the promenade and a black guy drove into me with a bicycle. Even though I screamed, he just continued riding on his bike.

Just once I’d like to read the last paragraph where it states,: “The victim responded with persuasive, yet proportional force. The NYPD is awaiting the attacker regaining consciousness to formally charge him with felony assault. NYPD PIO, Manny Enriques noted, “It is refreshing to see the good-guys get in a few licks. That moron, should he ever again have the opportunity, might think twice about attacking a Yid.”

Still waiting

Still waiting for this community to wake up and realized that we don’t have anyone who really represent and help us, the ones we have right now, only take pictures in restaurants, they like to have meetings with politicians and police chiefs but they don’t do anything for the community. Whoever we have till now, vaad, activists,etc, they only care about themselves. We need new decent people that care for everyone

Yes, even a teenager can easily spray an attacker and the attacker will not be able to hurt anyone. The only 15 dollar fix that works. Once a few get sprayed and they know all are carrying it they will think twice. The cops do not care so this is the only way.

It late 60’s we had this problem . The late Sam Schrage AH organized the Yidden of CH and formed the Maccabbees . It worked and the fear of the Jews were put into the troublemakers . The every Jew attacked , A Chaya troublemaker got worse petch . Over a period of time it got quieter . We are headed in the same direction and do NOT depend on the Cops . When we strike back hard the word will gout quickly . Time to organize the Maccabbee Street Patrol again . We control our own destiny .

What are these kids learning in school, where are they picking up this hatred toward Jews?
Also while there may be a stronger police presence, it does not help if they are looking at their phones, and every time I pass a patrol car, that is exactly what they are doing

We never do a thing about it and, even though we’re the ones who cause least trouble, the police are not on our side and they know it. So they’re free and easy to do what they enjoy.

I guess he was in shock

The only reason I could think of him not screaming after what happened is because he was in shock, he just keeps on walking like nothing happened instead of bringing attention to what just did happen, I am not a professional but I would guess that shock paralyzes you momentarily

Do what other jewish communities have done. Get rid of your anti jewish neighbors. For many years Boro park suffered from Italian anti semites on one side and on the other side Puerto Rican anti semites. Then there was a third side of my Palestinian arabs. Finally two hundred thousand Chinese were moved in and they stabilized Boro park. Crown heights has hope. Many yuppies are moving in and around crown heights and that reduces street crimes carried out by blacks. You also need to vote. And vote for good candidates. Not liberal Jews like Schumer,Nadler and the rest of… Read more »

If 90% (litterally) of all attacks on Jews in CH are from blacks…the community should work together to prevent any black non-residents from entering the Jewish area (say eastern parkway to empire and Brooklyn to albany)

Real simple if you are black and you dont live here…stay out because statistics show you come here to attack or steal

This is unacceptable. Clearly, there are three factors: -Inculcated anti-Semitism in the African American communities. -Less Vigilante surveillance to keep the thugs in check -Weakend NYPD under de Blasio Solutions: -Education for African American towards moral values, and away from violence and hate. -Stepping up our defense game a la Shemtov. -Holding the police, public elected officials and Jewish ‘activist’ officials accountable for their lack of leadership. It seems inconceivable to me that in 2019, one of the few places on earth where Jews are attacked on a regular basis, and its a ok with everyone is in NYC, in… Read more »

Ultimately, nobody should be lifting a hand or leg to someone else. However, if you watch the video carefully, you will notice that the yungerman was looking across Kingston as he walked right in front of/cutting off the Black man. Two wrongs don’t make a right – but Yidden watch where you walk and do not walk directly into someone else’s / oncoming path. Don’t give them an “excuse” to behave like an animal.

According to the video, two people saw the incident and a van slowed down….but everyone continued on their merry way
So…..as long as these thugs continue to bully yidden, with no consequences, it will continue to get worst.
Are there any lessons we learned from history???

You mace a few these jerks this will stop cold. This is the simple answer and no one is listening. No matter how tall or strong the perp is or how great a boxer , figher or martial artist they are, one spray to the perp and they are incapacitaed rubbing their eyes screaming for 5 minutes and enough time to run and get help. The great equalizer is the pepper spray so why have you all not figured it out yet duh….

That sounds so good. The only unrealistic part is where the police commend the potential victim for defending himself. Part of the cause of the problem is that history has shown that the police in crown heights tend to try to incriminate community members who defends themselves or others, thereby effectively siding with the attacker (unless he’s gone and they have no intention of pursuing). Of course, we should not be intimidated by that and fight for what’s right – our own safety and the safety of others.

Answer to #15

Where are they getting their violent hatred from?
From anti-Semitic blogs and comments, where all kinds of lies about Jews are repeated constantly (and I mean literally with absolutely not one bit of exaggeration, hundreds or thousands per minute, when you ad up all the anti-Semitic blogs and videos and comments under pro Jewish videos, all over the internet), like the comments under this video about why people hate Jews;

Look again at the video: While walking, the chasid swerves into the path of the assailant. It’s a variant case of road rage.

Unless the CH community gets rid of the lazy people who talk, take photo ops and do nothing, and instead finds community leaders who will actually DO something to force a strong police presence 24/7, it will only get worse.

Good luck, start investing in Kevlar vests, mace & baseball bats.
