Selective memory of Farakhan

Reader comment on item: Farrakhan Demands Reparations from Jews
in response to reader comment: Farrakhan demands what from whom?

Good comments and right on target. I would like to add for the elucidation of Mr. Farakhan that the NAACP was founded in 1910 by two Jewish brothers, Jack and Arthur Springan . These Jewish attorneys were outraged by the lynching prevalent in our country (not by Jews, incidentally)' and were pillorized by President Wilson for this affrontory. It seems also that Mr. Farakhan has obliterated the memory of those Jews who marched in the South for Civil Rights as well as the Jewish idealist young men who died for this cause.
