The same scholars, I suppose, who all fail to write ‘complete’ histories. I’m quite sure there are Jamaican Jews who are prepared to admit the truth about their history of participation in the slave trade. He sent me looking for Eli Faber’s book Jews, Slaves, and the Slave Trade: Setting the Record Straight which was published in 2000 by the New York University Press. But I’ve seen a most intriguing summary of its thesis posted on Amazon: “Focusing on the British empire, Faber assesses the extent to which Jews participated in the institution of slavery through investment in slave trading companies, ownership of slave ships, commercial activity as merchants who sold slaves upon their arrival from Africa, and direct ownership of slaves.His unprecedented original research utilizing shipping and tax records, stock-transfer ledgers, censuses, slave registers, and synagogue records reveals, once and for all, the minimal nature of Jews’ involvement in the subjugation of Africans in the Americas”.How, in Jehovah’s name, could the word ‘minimal’ be appropriate in this context?I knew a bit about the Olmec heads but I wanted to hear the official story. But since it’s so obviously African, it had to mutate supernaturally into a non-human form.
