I’m having a hard time with two streams in my Jewish community right now. On the one hand, there are those who hold the tragedy of the #TreeOfLifeShooting as an exceptional act of hatred, and minimize the other horrendous violent acts of last week.
On the other hand, there are some who are using this moment criticize Jews for holding this tragedy as somehow distinct — with posts expressing disappointment that community vigils “failed to acknowledge how antisemitism and other forms of violence are interconnected.”
This is not the time for exceptionalism, nor is it the time for diminishment. There is space for the Jewish community to mourn its tragedy without mentioning other forms of violence, just as it is important for the fight against antisemitism to be against white supremacism.

THREAD: After the #TreeOfLifeSynagogue #shooting, the #KrogerShooting before that, and the +14 bombs sent by the #MAGABomber, it's crucial that we call #RightWingTerrorism out for what it is, but we also clearly need to talk about #WhiteSupremacy in the 2018 election.
We celebrate the truly #HISTORIC number of #women and #POC running for office in 2018, but we also refuse to ignore the volume & range of explicit and implicit #racist attacks almost every single candidate of color has faced in this election. That's also #WhiteSupremacy in action
Let's be clear: #POC running for elected office have ALWAYS faced hurdles to victory defined by the strength of #StructuralRacism and our country's long-standing culture of #WhiteSupremacy. But 2018 has taken it to a new level.
