Diego Rivera Sees Anti-Semitism Rooted in Inferiority Complex

Download PDF for this date

Diego Rivera, noted painter in whose home Leon Trotsky is a guest, denounced anti-Semitism this week in an article published in the Mexican daily "Novedades" under the title, "Anti-Semitism Betrays Mexico." He attributes prejudice on the part of workers against Jews and Chinese to an inferiority complex. The article was said to be the strongest denunciation of anti-Semitism thus far voiced by a Mexican intellectual.
