Landecker Democracy Fellow Lievnath Faber recently wrote a Facebook post in which she reflects on the first Racism Quiz and Knowledge Test that aired on public television a few days after the Dutch elections.

Lievnath writes that although Jews don’t fit well into the “visible racism context,” it doesn’t mean that conversations surrounding race should exclude them.
