    You are right that jewish have been discriminated against just as much as blacks, indigenous people, arabs, etc. As an ex-catholic, I can tell you the church has been responsible for propagating the antisemitic agenda since the moors invaded Spain in 71, which curiously resulted in the expulsion of the jews, not the moors, from Spain in 1492.
    Well, please accept my apology for the wrongdoings of people who were supposedly acting in God's name.
    Now in Christ,
    Laura

    Re: Afro Argentinos

    Arturo, I disagree with you, as an argentine and as a minority in the country I must say that Argentines and Argentina has been a country plagued with racism and lack of integration. The construction of this country is based on creating "getos" of minority communities and hiding them from society, despite argentina having such a diverse population you will rarely see asian or african or even jewish communities fully integrating into argentine society. It is a very recent phenomenon, I would actually say of a new generation and one of the last 6 years where we are slowly brining a little more tolerance to our country.

    Menem, was a tremendously popular president, he has lost support only after the uncovering of his wrongdoings but he just shares that same shame our other leaders do.

    I applaud this documentary to bring light on a short sighted society that denies its natural discrimination. It reminds me how I would feel during the 70's in Argentina when they would openly shout: "hagan patria maten un judio" -be patriot kill a jew- The reason why we don't have a large population of indians and blacks in our country is because we have killed them or marginalized them or ran them out of our country.

    We still continue feeling the sad predicament of a discriminatory society towards minorities as we still look with dismay how the corrupt judicial system is even unable to bring justice to the sad history this country has like the bombing of the jewish community and continues to protect the corrupt that committed them. Who sadly includes our President Menem who aided in this process of killing his citizens, and who all of our society still continues to protect his criminal acts. As well as we continue to protect the criminal acts of our history by not being candid and sincere about our true reality.
