The mourning period is over. It’s time to get back to the issues of great importance, and Jew hating seems to be the top of the list for Jersey City Board of Education Trustee Joan Terrell.
Terrall made her despicable comments in response to a column published on InsiderNJ called “Faith and hope in face of Hate”.
Insider NJ transcribed part of her comments:
“Where was all this faith and hope when black homeowners were being threatened, intimidated and harassed by ‘want to buy your house’ bullies of the Jewish community? They brazenly came on the property of black homeowners and waved bags of money. Resistance was met with more threats of ‘we will bring drug dealers and prostitutes to live next door to you. You will sell to us then.”
Terrell claimed that black tenants were being evicted from homes owned by Jewish to make room for additional Jewish people to occupy and that a million-dollar campaign in New York encouraged Jewish to move into Jersey City.
Her post went on to raise questions about the loss of key programs in Jersey City that benefited ex-offenders and the loss of community gardens previously run largely by African Americans
“One still exists and has been harassed almost daily,” she wrote. “If we are going to tell a narrative, it should being with truth, not more cover up of truth. Dialogue is important, but truth is critical.”
She implied that city officials and community leaders appear to have turned a blind eye to the reduction of services, and claims that “drugs and guns are planted in the Black Community.”
“Mr. Anderson and Ms. Graham went directly to the Kosher supermarket,” Terrell wrote. “I believe they knew they would come out in body bags. What is the message they were sending? Are we brave enough to explore the answer to their message? Are we brave enough to stop the assault on the black communities of America?”
Why this woman still has a job is a good question.

Imagine, if you would, a member of the El Paso Board of Education justifying the massacre at Walmart. Would it escape national media attention? No? So what's the difference? Intersectionality is poison. https://t.co/bESPlTX8Dp

"These statements are deeply #antiSemitic and highly offensive to the victims," says our RD @bernstein_evan in regards to the Jersey City Board of Education Trustee's Facebook comments blaming Jews for the #JerseyCityShooting.
