Women’s March Organizer: ‘White Jews, as White People, Uphold White Supremacy’

Robert Kraychik, Breitabart, December 24, 2018

Tamika Mallory, co-president of the Women’s March, told the New York Times that “white Jews … uphold white supremacy.” She also told a fellow left-wing activist “that Jews [need] to confront their own role in racism.”

Vanessa Wruble, a self-described Jewish activist and “early organizer of the Women’s March,” told the Times she was pushed out of the political campaign, in part, because of her “Jewish identity.”


According to Wruble, Women’s March leadership was reluctant to focus on Jewish women for fear of alienating Black Lives Matter activists. She said Women’s March leaders told her, “We really couldn’t center Jewish women in this or we might turn off groups like Black Lives Matter.”

Wruble also noted how the Nation of Islam would be providing security at Women’s March events.

Evvie Harmon, another march organizer, recalled how Mallory disparaged Wruble on account of the latter’s Jewish ethnicity. She told Tablet:

I suddenly realized that [Tamika Mallory] was berating [Vanessa Wruble] — but it wasn’t about her being white. It was about her being Jewish. “Your people this, your people that.” I was raised in the South and the language that was used is language that I’m very used to hearing in rural South Carolina. Just instead of against black people, against Jewish people. They even said to her “your people hold all the wealth.” You could hear a pin drop. It was awful.

Via statement to the New York Times, Mallory said, “Since that conversation, we’ve all learned a lot about how while white Jews, as white people, uphold white supremacy, ALL Jews are targeted by it.” {snip}


Mallory has praised Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan as the “greatest of all time.”


A Women’s March declaration of principles specifically omits any mention of white, Christian, or Jewish women: “We must create a society in which all women — including Black women, Indigenous women, poor women, immigrant women, disabled women, Muslim women, lesbian, queer and trans women — are free.”
