Antisemitic fliers calling for ‘ending Jewish privilege’ paper U of Illinois campus

Source: JTA

Chicago, Illinois - Fliers claiming that “Jewish privilege” is the key to social injustice in the United States were found on the campus of the University of Illinois at Chicago. 


The fliers, found Tuesday and Wednesday in different locations, claim in bold letters that “Ending white privilege starts with ending Jewish privilege.” Citing survey data, the fliers then claim that 44 percent of Jewish Americans are in the “one percent,” or the top economic percentile in the United States.


“Is the 1% Straight, White Men? Or is the 1% Jewish?” the flier asks, showing a pyramid of stick figures in which the top of the pyramid is populated almost entirely with stick figures emblazoned with large Jewish stars. The bottom of the pyramid is labeled “The 99%” and “Goyim.”
