Unfortunately, I have been exposed to antisemitic tropes about Jewish control over finances or foreign policy. I appreciated Professor Mead’s perspective that believing in antisemetic tropes signal that one doesn’t understand the political or economic systems. After taking this course, my response will be to ask the person questions about the systems they are referencing and bring them to their own realization about how harmfully oversimplified the political and economic systems we live in.
