Einstein and Paul Robeson
Least we forget, some of the best minds of this world could not stand the racist and segregation policies of so-called white countries like America and Israel.
Albert Einstein the great scientist was one of the most famous anti-racist spokesmen. His views were dreaded by the American establishment because it came from one of their own.
Below find his views on some of the most topical issues or his days, and our days too:
Einstein routinely trashed America for it’s racism.
He wrote, “Race prejudice has unfortunately become an American tradition which is uncritically handed down from one generation to the next.”
Einstein also joined the NAACP, and became close friends with two of America’s most famous civil rights leaders – W.E. DuBois and Paul Robeson.
In 1952, soon after Jewish gunmen had ethnically cleansed Arab villages, Einstein was offered the presidency of the illegitimate State of Israel. He politely declined the offer: “I am deeply moved by the offer from our State of Israel, and at once saddened and ashamed that I cannot accept it.”
