protest to expel Africans from South Tel Aviv and all of Israel - April 6, 2011
The context for this video is an article published on the Haaretz website on April 8, 2011: http://bit.ly/shaanan
P.S. Yes, I know that when the first man filmed in the video mentions the Black Panthers, he is likely referring to the 1970s Arab-Jewish-Israeli copycat group, not the original African American group of the same name. But both groups were composed of dark-skinned people who experienced racism because they were racialized as Black by their respective societies, governed by power structures that were, and still are, dominated by light-skinned descendants of Europeans. At that time, I felt it important to contextualize the man's reference to the Black Panthers, because the comparison that he draws between the anti-African migrant movement in Israel and the Panthers could be considered by some to be very offensive. To put it in perspective, one might say it is the equivalent of calling an anti-Semitic group 'The Jewish Defense Force".
