Political Concerns of Blacks and Jews

May 26, 1988

I greatly appreciated the article entitled "What Black/Jewish Split?", Op-Ed Page, May 19. The writers, the Rev. Thomas Kilgore Jr. and Rabbi Alfred Wolf, stress an important point regarding both black and Jewish political and social concerns. I agree with them wholeheartedly when they state that " . . . Perhaps Jews and blacks act no differently from any other interest group in the American body politic." This article was a favorable accompaniment to the front-page article "Signs of Peace Seen as Jews, Jackson Meet."

All interest, ethnic and religious groups should work toward goals of open communication and peaceful coexistence, and continue to recognize each other's struggles, rather than negating them.
