In America, Jewish people have higher average incomes and are vastly overrepresented in positions of power. I haven't seen a lot of SJWs talk about this

It's a very interesting point. I don't have the definitive answer.
Free vote -- short read. I've spent well over 15 hours researching abortion in the past week, so there might be something there for you. I recommend reading Con's counter-arguments first to come to a quick decisions, but the choice is all yours:

If it wasn't for the support of Christians and their false interpretations of the prophecies written in the OT, Zionism wouldn't exist, which is what the Jews usurp the power from to gain wealth and privilege.

Perhaps JGES plays a role as well..

Perhaps you don't have a clue why the Jews are getting preference, wealth and power.

I did a bit of research on this. Turns out that they (Ashkenazi Jews) have a higher I.Q. than everyone else at 105-115 (depends on the study you reference, though). The follow is one study I found on a whim:

Cochran, G., Hardy, J. and Harpending, H., 2006. "Natural history of Ashkenazi intelligence." Journal of Biosocial Science, 38(5), pp.659"693. -- (I.Q. = 112-115)

Couple this with the fact that humans have a natural tendency to gravitate to people who share are ethnic origin (http://www.euvolution.com... -- J.P Rushton's work shows that race is one of the heaviest determinants when people select for friends), and it's not hard to imagine that cronyism could be taking place.

So, that explains to some extent why they are "vastly overrespresented" in power.

Now, I don't have sources for this bit, but I suspect that the SJWs don't talk about it because they consider them a minority, underprivileged class. This might be in large to the Holocaust narrative, wherein a sense of guilt is instilled within SJWs. This is quite speculative, though.

At least the Ashkenazi Jews were smart enough to go along with the Christian interpretations of Ezekiel. It's too bad that Christians don't understand what the prophecies in Ezekiel are about.

Despite the pogroms and abuse against them, historically Jews in western society had an economic advantage because their religious strictures against usury were far more lax (especially when lending to non-jews) then it was amongst Christians.

Additionally they were generally more literate, as Jews were expected to learn to read the Torah themselves rather than being read the bible by a priest.

In a fairly stagnant society where most people were basically turnip farmer, these dual advantages allowed Jews a lot more variability in their trade and allowed some of them to accrue disproportionate wealth. You can see an example of this in the role of Court Jew (https://en.wikipedia.org...).

Although these advantages no longer exist, there is a hereditary effect to wealth with people born to richer families tending to be rich themselves due to the advantages in being born to a wealth family. It is only one of many factors though and assuming there isn't positive discrimination in favour of Jews, time and progressive taxes should take care of the issue and normalise it.
