I have one friend who not only never acknowledges posts about anti-Semitism, but yesterday/today has stuck to her position of “Judaism is the one religion I just can’t be comfortable with”. Oh I’m sorry I thought you cared about social justice
Though I cannot say I am surprised to hear that someone ostensibly concerned about social justice has said that, it is nevertheless horrifying, especially when coming from a friend. So sorry, hon.
I know you are seeing the same thing on your dash that I am: There are people who blog about nearly every social justice issue under the sun and who post half a dozen selfies and two dozen cat pics every day and nevertheless cannot be bothered to post one word about the violence and threats of violence that diasporic Jews have been experiencing in the past few days. I know it is demoralizing. I know because I have been demoralized. I have been on the verge of tears today, thinking about the recent threats of violence in my city and wondering how much worse the situation will have to get before people who are supposedly committed to social justice end their silence. One of the few things giving me comfort right now is that even though you have as much reason to be discouraged as I am, you have used your beautiful voices. Thank you for that. If you ever need someone to talk to—even if it is just someone to listen because you need to vent or because you are feeling alone—I am here.
