Last week [David Brock] published an open letter to the president of my syndicate demanding an explanation as to why they carry my column, with a transparent invitation to drop it.
What bothered Mr. Brock was that I denounced the ad as subverting not only morals and good taste but also white racial and cultural identity through its deliberate glorification of interracial sex.
I argued it was deliberate because I can see no other reason why a black man and a white woman were selected for this particular spot and this particular role. Why not a black man and a black woman or a white man and a white woman?
We strongly condemn the clear bigotry of this column, Mr. Brock pontificated, the bigotry presumably being my dim view of interracial marriage.
Well, Im sorry, but I do take a dim view of it, for the simple reason that I would like my racewhitesto survive.
I see nothing wrong with that.
As a matter of fact, Id like to know why Mr. Brock thinks there is something wrong with it.
Nor am I the only one to think so. In recent years, any number of prominent Jewish spokesmen have expressed their own concerns about Jewish intermarriage with non-Jews. One in particular is Chief Rabbi Jonathan Sacks of Great Britain, who writes,
The Jewish people, having survived for thousands of years in the most adverse circumstances, including the Holocaust, is today threatened by intermarriage and assimilation. Jewish communities throughout the diaspora are experiencing demographic decline. Why has this happened, and can anything be done to reverse the trend? [The only argument against intermarriage]
