GUEST POST: Forgotten Anti-Jewish Remark

Forgotten Anti-Jewish Remark
(a guest post by Mr. Cohen)

In the early 1980s [or maybe it was the late 1970s],
Reggie Jackson was one of the greatest baseball players.

During a dispute about wages between Yankee
baseball players and Yankee owner George Steinbrenner,
Reggie Jackson (who just happened to be African-American) said:

“Blacks do all the work, Jews just own everything.”

Reggie Jackson received no punishment and no criticism
for this public statement, which was reported in the newspapers,
not even the smallest of the small.

In addition to being anti-Semitic, this statement was also foolish,
because Yankee owner George Steinbrenner was NOT Jewish
and had no Jewish ancestors.

Contrasting sharply with the total immunity granted to
Reggie Jackson, “Jimmy the Greek” was immediately
fired from his job as a sports commentator because
he said that African-Americans have superior athletic
abilities because of their history as slaves – which
was not an insult, but a compliment.

Reggie Jackson never retracted or apologized because
he had no need to, because Jews can be insulted
without consequences.  For “Jimmy the Greek”,
no retraction or apology would have ever been
sufficient to save him, because blacks can never
be insulted without consequences.

This is one of the unfair double-standards
that is promoted by Political Correctness:

Blacks can never be insulted without consequences,
because they have been granted Victim Status
by the rules of Political Correctness.

Jews can be insulted many times without consequences,
because they DO NOT HAVE Victim Status according
to the rules of Political Correctness.

The most frustrating aspect of Political Correctness
(for me) is that most Jews continue to promote it, 
even though it obviously discriminates against them. 
This is insanity.

Reggie Jackson’s anti-Jewish remark has been
completely forgotten, as if it never existed. 
That explains why I feel compelled to publicize it.

Last but not least, the fact that Jews have not been
granted Victim Status is amazingly unjust, considering
how many times Jews have been persecuted.

Please provide the source of this quote for Reggie Jackson. I have never heard of it before.

Reggie Jackson in 1972 joined his two Jewish team mates and wore black arm bands in memory of the Israeli athletes in Munich.

Reggie has also written about racist remarks made by his manager against Ken Holstman, a Jewish pitcher.
