Ricardo Jayme Jayme من عند نيويورك
I had not heard of this book by such a famous author. I was surprised at how relevant the writing was in terms of the underlying and sometimes overt racism that exists in areas of the United States. And it also surprised me that this racism was directed at Jews during that time. I guess many of the books I had read from that era people lived "in the own neighborhoods" so perhaps I always thought of Brooklyn as having a large Jewish population. Although some of the overt racism has changed. I am afraid that there are still too many underlying attitudes against groups of people based on stereotypes that have been handed down. And unfortunately people are very quick to judge just from exterior appearances.
