Seldom have the relationships between two minorities been more dialectical than those of blacks and Jews. Much of the attention on this issue took the form of journalistic accounts or round table discussions over the selective nature of black prejudice towards Jews. The present study seeks to clarify the issue by exploring the nature of association between black hostility toward Jewish and non-Jewish whites. The data were collected by interviews with 319 black respondents who resided in the community of Avalon or its neighbor district of Crenshaw in south central Los Angeles.
