to promote his brand of pro-
gress, which is to instill
hate," writes Kenneth
Stern, a program specialist
for the American Jewish
Committee.
Mr. Stern, in an AJC
report titled "Crown
Heights: A Case Study in
Anti-Semitism and Com-
munity Relations," faulted
the Rev. Sharpton for fann-
ing "rage with lies." He
added that the Rev. Sharp-
ton's real political following
has never been proven.
In his funeral eulogy for
Gavin Cato, the Rev. Sharp-
ton spoke directly to the
Jewish community of Crown
Heights:
"We've shown where we
can burn . . . We must not
reprimand our children for
outrage when it is the
outrage that was put in
them by an oppressive
system."
His rhetoric did not change
when he spoke in Ann Ar-
bor, but he did not arouse
the deep black-Jewish ten-
sions left at Michigan State
University last year when
the reverend's friend, Louis
Farrakhan, spoke.
In his speech to a crowd of
1,200 on Tuesday, the Rev.
Sharpton thundered against
George Bush, black puppets
of the white "power elite,"
the media, affirmative ac-
tion, the Gulf War and the
U.S. Senate, among others.
He also supported Leonard
Jeffries, the City College of
New York professor who
said there's a "conspiracy"

by Jews and Italians in
Hollywood to "work for the
destruction of black people."
Although he was greeted
warmly by many students, a
small group of Jewish
students banded together to
oppose the Rev. Sharpton's
presence on the campus.
"The Rev. Al Sharpton at
the University of Michigan
is a paradox. Al Sharpton
spreads hate. His mission is
to turn black against white,
black against black," read
the group's flyer, which was
handed out to the audience
before the speech.
Wendy Shanker, a U-M
student who organized the
group, said the Rev. Sharp-
ton's speech did "irreparable
damage" to black-Jewish re-
lations on campus.
"What are we pretending
to do here? If not in the uni-
versity, where are we going
to learn to live together?"
Ms. Shanker said.
The criticism doesn't touch
him.
The Rev. Sharpton wants
to serve civil suit papers not
only to the driver of the
vehicle who accidentally ran
over Gavin Cato, but to his
lawyer, the private am-
bulance that first responded
to the scene, the district at-
torney, Rabbi Menachem
Schneerson and the city of
New York.
He denies that anti-
Semitism had anything to do
with the Crown Heights
violence. At one point, 50-
100 young blacks gathered
in front of the Lubavitch
