Kanye West's The Breakfast Club Interview Offends Jewish Community

(AllHipHop News) Riling up shock jock Charlamagne Tha God with grandiose ideas for a “product” line is one thing, but Kanye Mr. Controversy West has been accused of anti-semitism. The Anti-Defamation League recently released a statement denouncing Kanye’s comments on Power 105.1 The Breakfast Club about Black people not having Jewish-like connections.

During his interview on Power 105.1, West explained President Obama’s inability to make certain changes to his racial predisposition to a lack of connections as compared to the Jewish community:

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.

Days following the interview,  The Anti-Defamation League (ADL)’s National Director Abaraham H. Foxman issued a statement describing Kanye’s comments as “classic anti-Semitism”:

There it goes again, the age-old canard that Jews are all-powerful and control the levers of power in government.  As a celebrity with a wide following, Kanye West should know better.  We hope that he will take responsibility for his words, understand why they are so offensive, and apologize to those he has offended.

The Israeli daily newspaper Haaretz was one of the first publications to make light of Kanye’s potentially anti-semitic comment in their issue last Friday (November 29th).

    True ass shit! Real ass shit. Telling the truth shit. Kikes always sensitive shit. Jews always complaining shit.

    • anemia716

      more racial slurs please!!!

    • obamaeatsass

      kikes are sensitive to the truth cuz they a bunch a lying muthafuckaz. I cant stand them “oh look how we suffered more than any other nation” pieces of shit!

      • therealest1

        Ain’t that the truth! I agree they complain way too much about hardships they went through. Every racial group has practically gone through hardships, but they don’t complain about it or bring up the past as much.

        Look at the Cambodians, they went through a Holocaust type of equivalent with the killing fields in the late 70s regarding genocide, but you don’t see them complaining constantly. They fled, lots of them ended up in Long Beach. A shitload of them even started gangbanging hard and deep in the 80s, ask Snoop Dogg, I’m sure he can tell you he knew some of them when he was banging as a kid out there.

        That’s an example of people moving on, enduring, doing shit on their own unlike Jews always bringing up old shit or trying to make it a national crisis when real shit is said about them.

  • Bobby T

    They are that’s why there is a communist president.
    Ask David Geffen King of the Jews

    • therealest1

      There are a shitload of Jews, David Geffen’s butt pirate ass is only one of the major players in the game.

  • don king

    those powerful “jews” are not real israel jews. they r businessmen who called themself jews, cause the bible says jews r the chosen nation n cause through historical events, like the 2nd world war, alot of countries opened their doors 4 jewish refugees, which made it easier 4 mostly german businessmen, who claimed 2 b jews, 2 get a foot in another country. this also explains why alot of “jews” have german names. rothschild 4 example r fake jews!

    • therealest1

      The type of corrupt/money hungry/greedy/motivated by money Jew you’re referring to is Zionist. Those bloodsuckers are what you call Americanized Jews who are only out for one thing, money. They will sacrifice morals just to gain a dollar.

      The Jews like Orthodox or Hebrews, specifically the ones who wear the yarmulkes and distinct, old fashioned nondescript clothing are alright. They’re more motivated by archaic customs, not money though.

      • don king

        the point i was makin is that those zionist arent jews. so there4 they arent americanized, they r europeans, mainly germans n really not jews at all.

      • therealest1

        True indeed, the true Jews are the black ones from Africa from ancient times. I believe you can count the Orthodox ones as well. But I agree most of those Europeans who claim Jew are Zionist ones predicated by greed.

      • $18592567

        believe that if uwant to…

      • Jacob R.

        Zionism means believing in the State of Israel. Many of the Hasidic Jews you speak of also believe in the State of Israel. There are Ethiopian Jews in Israel today because of Zionism and are probably living better there than they ever could in Ethiopia.

        However I will agree with you that its a funny thing to be offended over. It is definitely true that Jews are largely successful, but that is because they always stick together and try to pool their resources together so they all benefit. I can’t hate them for that (and no I am not a Jew).

  • jd

    You gotta be kidding me. Someone said you have connections and THAT offends you?!?! FOH.

    • $11625525

      They’re just showing off now with this BS.

      Probably had a good giggle whilst they wrote their press release too. I hope Kanye takes it with the pinch of salt that it deserves.

      Funny how Michael Jackson had to remove the word K!ke from “They don’t care about us” but movie studio’s can put out movies with the “N” word all day long and no one bats an eyelid?

      That’s power right there. Soon you won’t be able to use the word “Jew” anymore, and for the record, I have nothing against Jewish people, not collectively anyhow, but then the I have issues with individuals of all races, if they start acting like sh*t c*nts.

      • digitallife

        If you started complaining about the N word and we all stopped using it we’d have the same result. Power isn’t in money or muscle it’s in unity which we don’t have.

      • $11625525

        And that right there is part of the truth, the other part is that it’s the UNITY the Jewish people have managed to maintain that has enabled them, as a people, to amass enough wealth within their communities. That’s not to say that all Jewish people are rich, that’s a misconception, because I have seen plenty who are not financially wealthy.

        My point was though, Spike Lee complained on plenty occasions about Tarantino’s movies having the N word in them and people just blew him off as though he was just bitching because Tarantino was getting all the shine, this double standard is overlooked.

        Jewish people are not the only communities that have managed to do so either though, we shouldn’t forget that. I think it’s their determination never to let their holocaust happen again that drives them though, and we need to put an end to our holocaust (which is still ongoing) by adopting the same attitude.

      • SBRon

        That’s part of what I touched on yesterday where I said Kanye needs to try organizing vs. alienating!! He clearly feels he’s one of the only blacks with the courage to make these statements, but I feel there could be a much better messenger!!! A large part of “da hood” (look at his own) ain’t feelin’ this dude, so how can he “rally the troops”, so to speak?!?

      • $11625525

        Kanye West has seen a void in hip hop, he’s seen the undying love that 2Pac gets and he, like many other artists, is trying to grab a piece of 2pac’s fanbase.

        I watched his V-106 interview on another site and, listening to him is like force feeding at a buffet. He has a lot on his mind and he’s trying to give it to us all in one sitting, instead of drip feeding us (his intended audience).

      • SBRon

        And all the posts about who are “Real Jews”, yada yada yada…
        are irrelevant to me…Show me how that UNIFIES us as a people in the 21st Century?!? As I type, in any given inner city, I’m sure there’s an “Original Black Hebrew” greeting another “Original Black Hebrew” with gunfire…

      • $11625525

        I’ll keep it real right now, I have no interest in what happened, how we got here etc., so far as Biblical times and pre-dating that. I’ll leave that for the scholars. I am interested in the now, the betterment of all people, not just Black, and living in a more harmonious environment.

        Life can be very short … On the scheme of things; taking into account the proposed age of the planet and the universe we exist in, life is a matter of minutes.

        There are good and bad in all shapes, sizes, sexes, races and nationalities. The meaning of life is Love, to give and receive, anyone who tries to tell you any different is a damn liar.

        We all know what hate can create, but the power of love is endless, limitless, addictive!

        I’ll let the bloggers squabble over who came first, I’ll concentrate on bettering myself because, as Rakim said, “It ain’t where you’re from it’s where you’re at”.

      • SBRon

        AMEN!!

      • digitallife

        Amass wealth? You do realize less than half of American jews live above the poverty line right? The number of Jewish people in America on welfare would shock you. Spike Lee is one person, I can crack my window right now and hear our own people calling themselves ‘N’s” all day long when have you ever heard a jew call each other “K*ke” or spanish people call themselves “sp*cs”..you don’t. How many fools were in the world reciting “N’s in paris”, what happened when Bill Cosby condemned the word, he got condemned. So let’s start looking at ourselves first before pointing at everyone else. Instead of putting up worldstarhiphop’s we should be putting up shh that enriches us and educates the public on our cultures and history like normal ethnic groups do. There’s a reason why the black man in america per capita has less degrees than indians in india…indians know they represent their entire race..we represent “ME”.

      • $11625525

        If you read what I said, again, you will see that we’re pretty much on the same page, the only difference being that I am not American and I do not live in America.

      Wish more people knew this. The “Jews” currently in Israel are descendants of eastern european converts who assumed the title and heritage as a false identity. There’s even genetic studies freely available for anyone questioning the facts.

        AHH won’t let me post links but there’s articles in both the New York Times AND Forbes (among many more) asserting the same with references to the gene studies proving it.

        One article from Oct/2013 and another from May/2013.

        Sooooo unless you’re willing to say “awww these normally reputable sources with high credentials are just lyin”, facts are facts. They are not the actual literal biblical “Jews”, they assumed the title in the absence of the real group of people and that’s a part of the reason (among others) why native arabs hate them so much, because they know this.

    I am a huge Kanye fan and a Jew. While I don’t think Kanye meant
    anything harmful, I do think his statements were a bit offensive. What
    offended me was not the implication that Jews are powerful or generally
    have good connections. What offended me somewhat was the implication
    that Jews have been born into the position they are in today. My
    ancestors and the ancestors of most Jews in the America came here a few
    generations ago with absolutely nothing. Ironically, Jews have faced
    the same struggle for acceptance in the last 100 years that Kanye is
    describing in the this interview.

      • Myleage

        it is a joke to me because i dont believe the whole ideology of “race.” I want to live in a society where difference are recognized but no bias is made solely upon those differences. for example, i am a black man, that isnt a racist remark. but by saying i wear bagging pants and have a grill in my mouth solely on the evidence of me being black is racist.

        Comedians and playwrights use political satire to make fun on how stupid it is to judge each other on race. Dave Chappelle, South Park, Boondocks, Family Guy all make fun of religions and races for satire and to bring awareness to societal issues. you can listen to Chris Rock and laugh all night but after his set you walk away a little smarter. that is the point of satire, hence why famous playwrights and authors such as Voltaire and Shakespeare are so renowned.

        But the problem is that people who commit racism AND people who see racism in things that are not racist perpetuate the problem. you need to watch south park the episode about the flag

      • Roger Adams

        the issue is that “jews run everything and have all the wealth” is the mantra that proceeded the holocaust. when germany’s economy crashed they blamed the jews. the notion that jews are greedy and well connected is a false a stereotype that needs to be challenged so when shit does hit the fan they aren’t targeted as they have been for centuries (and as recently as 1940). thats not so much history as a recent and really bad memory. forgive jews if we’re a bit sensitive. we sorta don’t have big families because that shit JUST happened.

      if you looked at real numbers you’d see the statement isn’t true. the perception that “jews” run everything is a myth and one that’s been used repeated over history to justify genocide.

        That’s the most positive stereotype I’ve ever heard. It’s like the stereotype of Asians being good at Math. It isn’t racist, I dont think All Asian ppl are good at math, but it doesn’t hurt or take away from their culture/beliefs either.

    It’s absolutely weird to see my bredren in here talking about jews the same way it bothers them to be talked about by white supremacists. Some folk need to do some damned self educating and expand their horizons. If people actually sat down with real jews you’d be absolutely shocked at how much you’d identify to them and them to you. Let’s also not forget that many jews were at the white forefront to fight slavery in america in the 1800’s when they were the white version of the negro in this country. Yet it’s easy to sit there and say they control everything, they run everything, they own everything..they run the world. The Jewish Community doesn’t run anything but Israel let’s get that correct, we are not excluded from their world but we also as a race won’t take the time to understand others with histories just like ours. I find it absolutely hypocritical that anyone of us descendants from slaves can look at another society of hated people like our enemy, it’s like the kettle calling the pot black. The only mofo’s alive entitled to critique the black and jewish community are the egyptians cause they took the brunt of the punishment historically outside of that we are all shh in a toilet controlled by roman catholic europeans.

    • There were videos on youtube how Jews welcome Black people in israel.
      Those are deleted by the Jewish owners of Google of course.
      There is no big difference in which way the Jewish people even treat
      the Palestinians and the Nazis treated them before WW2. They just yet
      didn’t put Palestinians in gas chambers. This doesn’t mean if they did
      have the chance they wouldn’t. Jewish people think of themselves as
      gods chosen people. This attitude alone does not belong into 2013.
      There is no god so there are no chosen people.
      We are all humans and we have yet to find the best way to be able to
      live together peacefully. This alone tells we are not that advanced from
      animals yet.

      • digitallife

        No offense son but this ain’t even worthy of a reply to because it is so based on bullshhh it’s laughable but i’ll enlighten you a bit. Jews and Palestinians are having a quasi civil war over land..the nazi’s had a sole agenda of eradicating them off the face of the earth..there is a huge difference in defending your home and leaving your home to go kill someone who isn’t doing anything to you. Pick up some books..the owners of youtube don’t delete shh…the system does. When you sign up there is a terms and conditions you agree to. You go on there making videos about killing white folk, or killing anyone and see how long it stays up.
