Why Kanye West Is an Antisemite

Echoing Malcolm X: "Black people don't have the same level of connections as Jewish people. Black people don't have the same connection as oil people."

Kanye-West-Jesus-Rolling-Stone-Cover-Illuminati

Newsbusters does some of the best work online in finding objectionable examples of media bias. This exchange from a radio interview Kanye West gave last week is an important discovery for those wanting to understand one of the most popular entertainers today:

KANYE WEST: We don’t got it like that. When I tell you only seven black billionaires, look at marginalization, and we feel like we happy because me and Rick Ross got it made, or I got a spread outside, a couple of us, or they put a black president.

Man, let me tell you something about George Bush and oil money and Obama and no money. People want to say Obama can’t make these moves or he’s not executing. That’s because he ain’t got those connections. Black people don’t have the same level of connections as Jewish people. Black people don’t have the same connection as oil people.

You know we don’t know nobody that got a nice house. You know we don’t know nobody with paper like that we can go to when we down. You know they can just put us back or put us in a corporation. You know we ain’t in situation. Can you guarantee that your daughter can get a job at this radio station? But if you own this radio station, you could guarantee that. That’s what I’m talking about.

Given that Newsbusters is such a great resource and there are some wonderful people working there, it breaks my heart when they fall prey to my primary grievance with movement conservatism today: an inability to recognize antisemitism, call it by name, and make fighting it a primary priority.

After highlighting this exchange, what is Newsbusters’ associate editor Noel Sheppard’s response? To rebut the charges about Obama’s money connections, point out that George W. Bush’ net worth is a third of West’s and crack a joke at the end.

Perhaps there is another, more important point to emphasize?

In the 1998 survey, blacks (34%) are nearly four times as likely as whites (9%) to fall into the most anti-Semitic category.

Among those blacks without any college education, 43% fall into the most anti-Semitic group. This number drops to 27% among African-Americans with some college experience, and stands at 18% among blacks with a four-year college degree.

Oh Kayne is just striking out with the usual accusatory whine-a-thon cuz he too is a racist. After all, he married a white girl. Go to the entry Wikipedia about Kayne and look at the pic of his mom, and the picture starts to clear up a little. She makes Michelle Obama look good, and that's saying something.

And, oh, let us remember that Obama ain't black, he's a mulato, one who attended the most expensive day school in Honolulu, then ritzy Occidental, then Columbia (or so he claims), and then Harvard. No connections, Kayne? The man's more wired in than printed circuit board on central server.

Politicians like Obama get elected because our culture celebrates horrible people like West and people stand by and say nothing.

"You know we don’t know nobody that got a nice house."
Does the White House qualify as a nice house, Kanye?

"You know we don’t know nobody with paper like that we can go to when we down."
You mean like paper like a birth certificate? (Sorry, couldn't resist)

"You know we ain’t in situation."
No comment on this one.

Although you probably don't need it, Kanye, your grammar teacher owes you a refund.

Let me see if I have this straight, Kanye:
1. Jews & whites have connections b/c they're Jewish & white.
2. Obama doesn't have oil connections b/c he's black.
3. Obama can't get things done b/c he's black.
4. Obama is a victim b/c he's black.
5. Obama can't get elected President b/c he's . . . . oh, wait. Never mind. By jove, I think I've got it, Kanye!

Again, that's people allowing others to tell them what to think about whomever. That's someone else setting their priorities for them as opposed to them determining their own fate and future. Isn't that the slavery they say they've overcome? It is. If they would only stop and look at it for what it is. Someone else using them to prove a point they hardly understand and obviously have no true investment in.

Same thing that happened hundreds of years ago. If they don't understand their past, they're doomed to relive it. I'd have each of them read "Up from Slavery" and realize it's their life and worth living if they wish to. If they'd rather give it away, as they are when they follow these hip hop fools, then they have no cause for complaint when it just doesn't work out for them like it does for the gangsters they follow.

Only they can determine their own self worth. Integrity is all any of us have.

It angers me to see the black community act as if the NEED someone to tell them what and how to think as if determining their own future is simply too hard a task for them. I never bought into that crap and it's really sad to see them do so simply to avoid having to think for themselves.

It's a pity.

Why would the "musings" of a racist who got filthy rich recording really $hitty "poetry" with a lot of bass be of any relevance to anyone outside his personal echo chamber?

His "personal echo chamber" is filled with millions of people. Kanye West is a person who impacts the culture, particularly the ghetto culture. When he says antisemitic things it inspires and confirms the antisemitism in the youth who look up to him. It is fuel on the fire and contributes to violence. Conspiracism is an evil ideology that must be confronted when people of prominence promote it.

Yes. This is something that needs to be said over and over: There is a culture in America that is proudly, violently racist. Also ignorant and paranoid. It must be confronted and condemned and likewise all who make excuses for it.

He is with a woman who is arguably a worldwide laughingstock for her past behavior. Yes, Kim's pretty in an over-cosmetically enhanced kind of way. The other day he called her the most beautiful woman in the world, maybe in the top ten of human existence. And we are to trust his perceptions?

Kanye who? The name doesn't ring a bell.

I just don't have the time to bother keeping up with these hip-hop thugsters.

Kanye just lost his Mensa card. Jews who should speak up are JINOS. Just as the German Jews who were sure Hitler was not talking about them, after all they were more German than the Germans.

Why should fighting anti-semitism be a top priority for a music-related magazine? Are you saying something about the music industry?
1 year ago
1 year ago Link To Comment
If a music-related magazine chooses to ignore an artist's racism and/or antisemitism then that's a statement about the magazine's values and priorities.

"Are you saying something about the music industry?"
No, I'm more saying something about ghetto culture, conservative political culture, and American popular culture as a whole.
