We welcome Representative Danny Davis’ statement this evening repudiating Minister Louis Farrakhan’s anti-Semitic views.
Anti-Semitism is a scourge and Louis Farrakhan is a shameless peddler of it, for which there is no excuse or justification. We condemn his record of anti-Semitism and other forms of hatred unequivocally. We expect Representative Davis and all other members of Congress we endorse to reject Farrakhan’s deeply disturbing views of the Jewish people.
African Americans and Jewish Americans have long been victims of baseless, categorical prejudice, making it all the more critical that our communities stand together in confronting it in all forms it takes, wherever and whenever it occurs. We look forward to our continued work with Representative Davis on this and other issues of shared concern.
