Anti-Semitism in Detroit II

Mm-hm. Mm-hm.

When they put the swastikas on with the Jews, they figure what they going to do with the Jews, with the, with the colored people, you know, they made all fun of it and everything. We didn't go away. We got them out. Now we have another rally, I understand, here in the 30th. You know about it?


In the civic center.

Oh. Yeah, I just remembered.

Yeah, they going to speak because they, they have to give them the privileges to speak. It's open speech free.


But, I don't know. We going go--if they open their mouth, they're going to get it.

Mm-hm. Mm-hm.

And was the exhibit--the Israeli. Remember?

Mm-hm. Yes.

They didn't come out. There were there in ??? but they didn't come out. Mr. ??? went there and he sought the police, he says, "Bring them out. We are ready. Just bring them out. Let's hear what they have to say." But they're not going to go back in the ???, they are going to go back in a, in a, in a casket.

Mm-hm. Mm-hm.

You have to stand up. How do you think that little Israel is existing?


Poor thing got Arabs spilling the, the blood there from the country. But at least they know that we can do something, too. I wish that our ancestors would tell us take guns and fight. Could never kill six million, honey. Never. Never. There would be million kills from them, too.
