Rebuked for her blatantly antisemitic statements that had no proof to back them, former Baltimore Mayor Sheila Dixon claimed that Orthodox Jews had a school closed down near their community because it was attended by black students.

In a recent YouTube video, Dixon was seen making baseless claims that were racially divisive and targeted towards the Charedi community. On the December 1st episode of “Pop and Politics LIVE” the former Baltimore Mayor said at the 33:07 minute mark, that politics closed her high school, Northwestern High school because “The Orthodox Jews didn’t want those Black kids up there in the Upper Park Heights community.”

As far as the closing down of the school was concerned, highly credible sources confirmed that “The school board closed Northwestern and many other schools in the city to combine schools with low enrollment numbers and move them into new 21st-century school buildings. Northwestern is now Forest Park High School and is in a beautiful new building. This new school is located within the same city council district as Northwestern.”

This fact didn’t just make Dixon a liar, but an antisemite who wanted to draw a rift between the two races. And as far as credibility is concerned, Dixon is not one to be trusted especially after her 2010 stint where she had to resign as Mayor, as part of a plea agreement with prosecutors, after she was found guilty of stealing gift cards from needy families.
