Blacks and Jews the Archetypal “Others”
This chapter explores encounters between European and non-European that raises questions of “difference” and “otherness”. It argues that Europeans, when absorbing the newly discovered lands in America, Africa, and the Pacific, both shaped and distorted to their liking the image of the “other.” The long history of blackness as a common denominator of the inferiority of Africans as well as Jews in Western culture is discussed.
