If you’re holding a magazine, or reading this on a screen, slide your eyes sideways and check out the colour of your hands.  (Do this only if you’re Jewish; don’t bother if you’re Ethiopian.)  The object of the exercise is to validate a recent claim floating about in the United States that all Jews are “white Jews” – i.e. white supremacists – thus unable to relate to issues like marginalization and oppression.
