Pubmed.gov gets 181 hits (21 of them free online) for the search: sexism and health and determinants; and 199 hits (24 free full text) for: racism and health and determinants. Pubmed is a highly technical and scholarly database, and most of its results will not link you to full text unless you access it at a large medical or very large academic library - via a proxy or "link resolver" that takes you to any journal that the library subscribes to. For example, at University of Maryland, our "Researchport" lets you find Pubmed "By database name", so that when you click on a title in your search results list, the full abstract record has a bright yellow "Find it" button that links you to online if we subscribe, or print if that is all we have, or Interlibrary Loan if we don't get the journal in any format.

There are definitely forms of Zionism that claim relationships with Marxism, anarchism, and other Left traditions. These movements have always had challenges from other Left movements among Jews (not to mention Palestinians, Arab communities, and the anti-imperialist Left in general).

An academic example looking at Zionism and its relationship to racism: The company Gale (that makes a variety of online and print reference sources) recently included an entry on Zionism in their Encyclopedia on Race and Racism. Pressure/input from Zionist groups have led them to make alterations to the entry.
The entry can be viewed here.

Within U.S. Jewish communities, there is a history of rejecting Zionism as a liberation movement. One book to read on this topic is:
Prophets outcast : a century of dissident Jewish writing about Zionism and Israel / edited by Adam Shatz. New York : Nation Books, c2004.

A current Jewish group (that I work with, to be transparent) called the International Jewish anti-Zionist Network (IJAN) has the view that any form of Zionism must be rejected as an ideology and practice if one believes in social justice (from an anti-imperialist and anti-racist framework) for all people. The group’s charter is here.

Currently within Israel there is the Anarchists Against the Wall formation, and the Shministim, both which are critical of Israeli policy but don't make a clear stance against Zionism.

QUESTION: Crown Heights Riot

question / pregunta: 

Are there any radical texts about the Crown Heights Riot in 1991? I'm particularly interested in texts written in NYC around the time that they happened, but any radical text on the subject is welcome, particularly those dealing with anti-semitism and racism vis-a-vis the riot.
