When You’re Black, They Let You Name ‘Em

1,611 words

Rapper Nick Cannon is the most unlikely person to be embroiled in an “anti-Semitism” controversy. Cannon gained popularity as a clean, family-friendly rapper. No one has ever mistaken him for hardcore or gangsta — he’s the nice rapper white families can listen to on their drive to church. His inoffensiveness and bourgeois image explain why TV networks rely on him as a variety show host.

But on a recent podcast, Cannon sounded far more like a Nation of Islam preacher than a primetime entertainer. He was joined on his podcast by Richard “Professor Griff” Griffin of Public Enemy fame. Griff famously got in hot water in the late 80s for attacking Jews and was forced out of Public Enemy. The two had a wild discussion about whites and Jews.

Cannon called whites “savages” and “animals,” and said we are so barbaric because we lack melanin.

When they were sent to the mountains of Caucasus . . . The sun then started to deteriorate them so then, they’re acting out of fear, they’re acting out of low self-esteem, they’re acting out of a deficiency.

So, therefore, the only way that they can act is evil. They have to rob, steal, rape, kill in order to survive. So then, these people that didn’t have what we have — and when I say we, I speak of the melanated people — they had to be savages . . . They’re acting as animals so they’re the ones that are actually closer to animals. They’re the ones that are actually the true savages.

He also said that Blacks are the “True Hebrews” and can’t be anti-Semitic: “You can’t be anti-Semitic when we are the Semitic people. When we are the same people they want to be. That’s our birthright.” Cannon agreed with Griff that the Jews control the media and the banks and praised Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.

Unsurprisingly, the comments caused controversy and resulted in one of Cannon’s employers, ViacomCBS, firing him. However, Fox stood by him after he apologized for his comments and said rabbis helped him stop being anti-Semitic. There was no apology given for his anti-white comments, and only a handful of conservatives complained about those comments. It’s okay to demonize whites, that’s just the way of the world. . .

While it’s not surprising Cannon had to apologize, it is noteworthy he was able to keep his job hosting Fox’s The Masked Singer. A white entertainer who was accused of “anti-Semitism” would lose all of his work and be permanently banished from showbiz. Cannon lost only one job, kept his main gig, and received support from several black celebrities.

The Nick Cannon controversy demonstrates that blacks are given greater leeway to say whatever they want, even about Jews. Blacks stand the highest in the racial hierarchy and they must be treated with greater tolerance. Liberal Jews can’t guilt-trip them like they can with whites.

This probably explains why prominent blacks rushed to support Cannon.

Former NBA star Dwayne Wade tweeted that he stood with Cannon and told him to “keep leading.” Wade later backtracked and said he didn’t mean to endorse Cannon’s comments.

Popular black radio host Charlamagne Tha God was far stronger in his Cannon support. He agreed with the rapper’s attacks on whites, saying whites are guilty of “mass racial violence in this country.” He wasn’t as forthright in defending Cannon’s Jewish comments. Instead, Charlamagne essentially said it was bad optics to attack Jews because they “have the power.”

That’s what you can do when you have the power. . . . Listen, Nick is my guy. I hate it had to be him, but that’s what you can do when you have the power. And if there’s one thing Jewish people have showed us, it’s they have the power.”

He also hilariously claimed: “I can’t wait until the day black people are able to fire people for saying things about us that we deem racist. We can barely get cops fired for actually killing us!”

Charlamagne must have not heard about the dozens of ordinary Americans who lost their jobs for criticizing Black Lives Matter.

Cannon isn’t alone among black entertainers in courting “anti-Semitic” controversy. Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson shared fake Adolf Hitler quotes on Instagram that claimed blacks were the real Jews and that the fake Jews extort America. He also shared Louis Farrakhan speeches. He apologized for the remarks and agreed to visit Auschwitz to educate himself. He suffered no rebuke or punishment from his team or the NFL. That contrasts with white athletes who get mired in controversies. For instance, NHL player Brendan Leipsic’s contract with the Washington Capitals was terminated over “sexist” text messages in May.

Jackson, like Cannon, received support from prominent blacks. Former NBA player and Black Lives Matter activist Stephen Jackson (no relation) said the Eagles player spoke the truth. Fellow Eagle Malik Jackson (also no relation) defended his teammate and the “honorable Louis Farrakhan” for speaking the truth. New Orleans Saints player Malcolm Jenkins dismissed the outrage against Jackson. “We can honor the Jewish heritage and trauma while staying focused on what matters,” Jenkins said in a social media post. The implication is that black concerns matter more than Jewish ones.

Rapper Ice Cube also incurred the wrath of the media last month for sharing anti-Jewish memes and praising Farrakhan. Unlike the other celebrities, he didn’t apologize and he attacked his critics for being racist sellouts. He hasn’t lost any opportunities due to his tweeting. Ice Cube, like Cannon, has in recent years become an inoffensive black entertainer and starred in several kitschy family comedies. That image contrasts with his gangsta rap and past affiliation with the Nation of Islam. He drew accusations of anti-Semitism in the early 90s for criticizing Jews in his lyrics. His anti-white lyrics and praise of the 1992 LA riots drew significantly less outrage.

Rap mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs (formerly known as Puff Daddy and P. Diddy) promoted Farrakhan on his Twitter account in early July. He hasn’t apologized for the association, nor have any of his businesses suffered for his broach of political correctness.

These controversies reflect the broader Black Lives Matter movement and the black community as a whole. Many BLM leaders are fervently anti-Zionist and are fond of Farrakhan. That has greatly upset the Jewish community, who demand BLM disavow anti-Zionism. No BLM leaders have done so, and the movement continues to be endorsed by every corporation, celebrity, and Democrat. BLM doesn’t seem to mind the anti-Semitic accusations. Recent attacks on Jews in America have been overwhelmingly committed by blacks. Blacks who live near Jewish communities despise their neighbors and want them gone.

There is a bevy of articles criticizing blacks for indulging in anti-Semitism and how it betrays the cause of racial justice. “It’s so disheartening to see people from groups that have been violently marginalized do the same thing to others without realizing that perpetuating this kind of bad logic is what perpetuates racism,” basketball legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar wrote this week. “Like anti-Black racism, anti-Jewish racism cannot have a place in any legitimate anti-racist liberation movement,” declared Daily Beast writer Cassie Da Costa. “The unfortunate truth is that some Black Americans have shown a certain cultural blindspot about Jews. Stereotypical and hurtful tropes about Jews are widely accepted in the African American community,” bemoaned sports writer Jemele Hill. She added: “The thirst for liberation and equality can never come at the expense of dehumanizing other marginalized groups — especially at a time when hate crimes against Jews have increased significantly.”

It’s unlikely that the media finger-wagging will end black animosity toward Jews. Blacks are now at the center of the American experience and stand atop the victim pyramid. Their lives matter more than yours, and so do their opinions. Jews demand blacks see them as fellow subalterns when blacks see Jews as wealthy whites who prey on their neighborhoods. BLM’s solidarity with the oppressed makes the movement anti-Israel. They see Palestinians as non-whites oppressed by a white supremacist state — no amount of propaganda can change that. Blacks will not be persuaded about Holocaust stories to care about the Jewish plight. The American education system tells them that their slavery is the greatest evil known to mankind and their suffering is the worst of any group in history. You will likely see a famous black figure say slavery was worse than the Holocaust and many blacks will defend that statement.

Black athletes and entertainers are being encouraged to engage in politics and share whatever they find. The people encouraging them shouldn’t be shocked when blacks begin sharing Farrakhan videos and claiming they’re the true Jews. Black Twitter loves this stuff and many other fringe ideas, like the world being flat and that black crime is actually committed by whites in black silicone masks. Blacks don’t have to worry about suffering real consequences or inspiring thousands of articles about their dangerous embrace of misinformation because they are America’s gods. Liberals must tiptoe around them and never offend the divine among us.

The light treatment of Nick Cannon, DeSean Jackson, and Ice Cube sends the message that blacks, unlike whites, can get away with anti-Semitism. This is the world wrought by the George Floyd Revolution.

Jews are just going to have to deal with it.

    This reminds me of Jamie Foxx about 10 years ago. He was my favorite on In Living Color and I thought he was a good, smart entertainer in the tradition of Chris Rock and Eddy Murphy. You know, a good black who, though occasionally feisty when it came to whites, was not racist and didn’t hate us. Then Foxx said a bushel of hateful petty nasty antiwhite things that got quoted in the media. Luckily I learned from that and never thought any black celebrity was “good” ever again. ALL of them, even the sweetest and most white presenting, can and will say stuff like Cannon did at any time.

      Oh he hates white men all right. That’s why he’s screwing Tom Cruise’s ex. Taking a high profile white woman from a white man is the ultimate FU to whitey (even if it’s after their split, it’s a dominance thing)

      We need to build our Ethnostate now & pursue our destiny of heading back to the stars. 1972 was the last time we walked on the moon & headed on the wrong path, the path in denying our destiny, the path in denying our identity. We r explorers, it’s in our DNA, we must return to our Ethnostate to come together as we once did & continue our journey among the stars.

    Since I’ve never listened to rap, except when forced to while stopped at a signal in traffic next to the noise, and I’ve also never attended a sports event, except when my dad took me once to a baseball game, and by the middle of the first inning, I asked, “Dad, what else is there to do here?”, I nevertheless get the drift of Black ‘entertainers’ and their worldly opinions from the news occasionally. True, since BLM has taken over ‘the world’ with their rhetoric and histrionics these past few months, it is becoming apparent this new Black ‘power grab’ is here to stay, and we need to find a new ‘vaccine’ for dealing with it. And we owe it to other Whites to help them adapt as well, since they had only attempted to pacify the Black crowd by ‘being nice’ — or even worse, trying to join directly with the Blacks, through marching with BLM, to shame and blame other Whites.

    I’m now reading a book by one of our eminent ‘race traitors’, Ms. Robin Diangelo, who writes page after page about how we Whites must learn to unlearn our upbringing in middle-class, but nevertheless privileged, households, and rearrange our entire lives and thinking processes to properly accommodate ourselves to ‘living correctly’ with Blacks, so as to no longer ‘oppress’ them. For me, this has been a barrel of laughs, but she actually teaches this in corporate settings, and I imagine you dare not laugh there!

    Stay tuned to the ever-entertaining drama of Black-White Race Relations in America. Oh, and now we have a new thread to the drama — Black Race Relations with Jews! Gee, the Jews oppress those other non-white innocent oppressed peoples, the Palestinians, but the Jews ‘look’ White, and they have all that money! Oh, what to do? Oh, what a dilemma!

      I forgot to mention the name of Ms. Diangelo’s book, “White Fragility: Why It’s So Hard For White People To Talk About Racism”. Well, poor thing, I guess she’s never read any of the authors and commentators here on Counter Currents. Everything SHE needs to know about racism and why it exists at all is right here.

      Corporate atmospheres have drastically changed in the last 5-10 years.

      I live in the south….10 years ago, I could comfortably, albeit carefully, say slightly off-color but normie-level things to most white coworkers about black coworkers. I obviously had to have a feel for who I was talking to, but there were relatively few white millennials, and most people in the south born before 1980 have a high threshold for realistic racial comments.

      In the last 10, and especially last 5, there has been an astronomical demographic shift in my workplace. Boomers retiring are being replaced by black millennials and uber feminist, career minded white women, en masse. This, in an industrial setting. Also a large number of Asians, pajeets, and Arabs being hired.

      What’s left of the whites have been marginalized, and our conversations have to be held with eyes darting back and forth and voices at just above a whisper. Because of my “white wokeness”, I’m a tad bit less intimidated than most of my other white coworkers. I can always tell that they get extremely nervous when such subjects come up. You can sense that they *know* that they’re being oppressed, but feel powerless.

      There are even a few older blacks that I can have fairly frank discussions with, more so than whites. But I avoid it now because they can turn on a dime and there’s no recourse. I’m at their mercy.

    This is by no means a purely US phenomenon. It is my direct personal experience that practically all non elite-educated black British citizens develop anachronistic, idiotic and infantile beliefs on a wide variety of subjects.

    They hold these views quite vehemently and in certain cases, usually related to imagined historical accomplishments or persecutions of their race, they will become irritable and even violent if challenged.

    For the time being this unpleasantness is averted in schools and colleges by focussing for example the history curriculum on negro-friendly topics such as slavery and the heroism of the post war ‘Windrush’ Afro-Caribbean immigrants who ‘refounded’ Britain.

    But there must come a point, sooner rather than later I fear, when to maintain European style scholarly standards in the face of such invincible ignorance will be a careeer ending error.

    In a few decades it is entirely possible that centuries of progress in literacy, rationality and civility will have been reversed by the demographic catastrophe that is overtaking our nation.

    And now for the black pill: ViacomCBS announced they were firing Cannon due to his anti-Semitic comments but did not condemn his far more outrageous anti-white comments.

    Likewise Ice Cube who has caught flak recently for criticizing the Tribe while his three decades of anti-white vitriol have been ignored by (((the Entertainment Industry))).

    whites are guilty of “mass racial violence in this country.”

    The point is: he is right. Let me explain: of-course that is, as per statistics, BS but ask the question: do Whites welcome blacks. And at least I can clearly say: no. So blacks are, IMO, fully right when they perceive that they don´t have a chance in the US. Imagine living in a country where the relevant people all actually reject you and want you out. What perspective do you have there: right, none. So blacks are in a complete dead end, they have no perspective, they will never ever feel well in a White society no matter how much jewish bullshit methods are enforced to mix the populations. And THAT, they may perceive as “mass racial violence”.

    My point is: we don’t have to discuss statistics if or if not blacks are oppressed (although the statistics also are very useful) but we have to look at the underlying constellation: Whites don’t want blacks in their country and there will never be a solution in an “integrated” society. That is of-course Dr. Johnson´s point since long: we want racial divorce.
    I just wished Whites would be honest about their feelings, and act accordingly. Why don´t Whites come out as a collective and say: we feel that we want to live among our kind and not have blacks around. Easy as that. The alternative is obviously White Genocide so why can´t Whites just be honest and speak up?

    God, can you say “biting the hand that feeds you”?

    American society is very open to blacks. I work in a very historically racist state, and I can testify that whites bend over backwards to accommodate blacks. Nor do I refer simply to the universal corporate rules that blacks can’t be fired for less than a major felony. People are very (far too) patient with them and usually try to compensate for their shortcomings. This is not everywhere, I’m sure, but even “racists” are very nice to blacks and try to help those in their own sphere. The reverse, not so much.

      Most parents will have experienced something along the following lines:
      One sunny day you go to the park with your 4-year-old daughter or son. She joins in with a group of other kids who are playing nearby. After a few minutes, she runs up to you complaining about a horrid boy who is calling her rude names. You tell her to ignore him, and she runs off again. A short while later she runs up to you again with a renewed litany of complaints about the horrid boy. “Well darling, just keep away from him if he’s not nice. Why don’t you go and play on the swings?” But she won’t take your advice. It strikes me that this mirrors the infantile attitude of blacks towards whites; they haven’t a good word to say for us, but they can’t tear themselves away from us. Maybe they really do find it hurtful that we don’t like them.

    A good exposition in fiction of what I say is the story “a worn path” by Eudora Welty. That’s how it is, mostly.

    I forgot… I wanted to share this experience (Europe, not US): had to do business with a quite specialized crafts company. While waiting, studying on the wall the pictures of the employees and saw with dismay among the some 25 Whites 1 negro and 1 habib-ish… I was then served by some pajeet-ish (not on the pictures, maybe apprentice) and boy did it confirm the bias, pretty plain incompetent but playing he had it all fully covered, it was an ordeal to deal with him. So think of it, these are enforced employments, affirmitive action hires, nobody ever wanted them, everybody wishes they weren´t there and yet they are forced upon us… ok you in the US are all used to what that means, try to keep them off anything important, work around them if any possible etc. But think what an extreme bloodletting that is… it´s just incredible how much that damages all your business ! So we in Europe are now starting to feel the full brunt of the population exchange… it is incredibly destructive… White Genocide in action… being eaten alive…so brutal… !

    I’m guessing Nick Cannon is a member of NOI (that might explain the turbans he’s been wearing), and is just repeating their beliefs — which are cartoonishly funny and can be used to promote more segregation between races.

    Nation of Islam is unapologetically anti-White and anti-Jewish and if more blacks became sympathetic to its message it could be a huge advantage to Whites.
