Mo Martin: On Jews, Looting, and Whiteness

Mordecai Martin, a thinker and writer who I follow on Play Vicious, posted this powerful piece on the Jewish response to racial protests and - yes looting - during the 60s and now with the George Floyd protests.

As Artist Marcia X on Play Vicious responded:
