Jewish organizations went ballistic when the Nation of Islam documented Jewish domination of the slave trade. Why? Because they blame whites for slavery, while leading blacks to think Jews are their friends. Jewish organizations champion blacks, and all minorities, solely to undermine America’s European Christian heritage. They use sexual, religious & racial minorities to dispossess the majority. They’re a satanic subversive force and they’re largely in control.

This now-famous book, relying primarily upon the works of mainstream Jewish scholars, demonstrates in meticulous detail and with formidable documentation that Jews were at the very center of the trans-Atlantic slave trade as merchants, financiers, shippers, and insurers. They also sold the products of slave labor on international markets.
The credibility of this underground classic speaks for itself. It relates a fascinating, previously invisible story that every educated American should know about.
According to the Nation of Islam (NOI,) it is a “persistent but mythological claim that Jews were either co-sufferers or innocent bystanders” during the slaveholding era.
The first third of Secret Relationship surveys the role of Jews in colonial slavery in South America and the Caribbean, the middle third that of slavery in colonial North America and the antebellum South. The final 100 pages consists of an alphabetical list and capsule biographies with extensive footnotes of dozens and dozens of prominent Jews involved in slavery.
Their role was not small. Jews were particularly active outside the present borders of the US in Brazil and the Caribbean.
North American Jews owned black servants and Jewish plantation owners in the South worked their lands with black slaves.
“In 1820,” historian Jacob Rader Marcus wrote in 1989, “over 75 percent of Jewish families in Charleston, Richmond, and Savannah owned slaves, employed as domestic servants; almost 40 percent of all Jewish householders in the United States owned one slave or more.”
Refuting arguments that US census records confirm only a “modest” level of slaveholding among Jews, the authors point out that Jews were twice as likely as white Americans to own slaves.
In addition, Jewish merchants sold dozens, even hundreds, of slaves at auction, turning over their chattel inventory as rapidly as possible to maximize profits. Brief ownership by slave merchants of this kind is not captured in census records.
Not only were there no protests against slavery by Southern Jews, but very few Jews anywhere in the United States protested slavery on moral grounds.
Today, the Nation of Islam writes, The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews “can be found in the collections of every major academic library, including those of every Ivy League college and university.”
