““I think what you’re trying to ask is why am I so insistent upon… giving out to them that BLACK-ness, that BLACK-power, that BLACK pushing them to identify with black culture; I think that’s what you’re asking. I have no choice over it; in the first place, to me we are the most beautiful creatures in the whole world, black people. And I mean that in every sense, outside and inside. And to me we have a culture that is surpassed by no other civilization but we don’t know anything about it. So again, I think I’ve said this before in this same interview, I think at some time before. My job is to somehow make them curious enough or persuade them, by hook or crook, to get more aware of themselves and where they came from and what they are into and what is already there, and just to bring it out. This is what compels me to compel them and I will do it by whatever means necessary.”

3. Tell my black ass what I should and should not be offended about.
4. Jump in on every tumblr post made for black people and say all people. Nobody was talking to you. Stay in your socks and sandals lane.
5. “Educate” me about Rap/Hip Hop or the root of Rock music. Stick to your Kenny Chesney and your Taylor Swift and have a got damn seat…
*99% of black people all agree that something is offensive*
1 black person comes out with their cooning self and says ‘actually you know what I’m black and I don’t find this offensive tbh’
White people: OMG FINALLY SOMEONE SAID IT. YESSSS. SEE YOU GUYS ARE OVERREACTING. WE ALL BLEED RED WE ALL SUFFER EQUALLY. WE ALL BURN IN THE SUN!!!!!!!!
politwice said: Being a Jew, you get picked on A LOT more than a black person, and that's a perfect example that complexion doesn't matter (Leo Frank Case) I like what you're doing, raising awareness, and I'm thinking about doing that for the Jews of Tumblr. Thanks
0/10 terrible message please don’t message me again especially not to make literally no sense, say a bunch of baseless things with no connections and then “complexion doesn’t matter” because that’s the biggest bullshit untrue fallacy fable fib fiction lie what was the point of even sending this..? :((((( What do you want from me? what did you want me to answer to this shit
Are they serious right now??
Leo Frank is their reason why Jews are more targeted than Black ppl? Lynching primarily targeted Black folks. Come on now… Everybody knows that except this ignorant.
I’m going to have to ask that non-Jews stop talking about Jews because I’m getting a terrible headache.
Firstly, not all Jews are white, so these blanket statements are false an unhelpful. And secondly, Ashkenazi Jews might have white privilege in some places like the USA, but definitely not everywhere. We’ve been considered “other” for a good 2000 years throughout Europe, and a genocide that wiped out 2/3 of our people in the continent didn’t do anything to alleviate that perception.
OP is an ass, but can we please stop ignoring Jewish history to make these points about intersectionality?
But here in the US, they have primary control, power over and profit of the image of Black folks in the media, across all mediums. So, excuse us for considering our context.
I’m sorry, correct me if I read this comment wrong, but did you say that American Jews have primary control over the media? Are we pulling that old canard from the Protocols of the Elders of Zion?
Lol see what you did there? Pulled the Anti-Semitic card and made no reference to what I actually said. That shit is getting old.
The heirarchy that makes up the music and movie industries aren’t kept secret lol. Who profits and who doesn’t is right there in black and white. Who has ultimate say on the direction and public perception of popular music in this country is not a fucking secret. So, please please inform me of what was so unbelievable about my comment?
Ooh, is the Anti-Semitic card like the race card? I was unaware we get one of those, too. Must have missed that in my last global conquest conspiracy meeting.
What’s unbelievable about your comment above is that you’re perpetuating the rather dangerous hoax that Jews control the media. We might be considered white in the US and earn much of the privilege that white WASPs have (to an extent, because from my experience I can tell you that white non-Jews have never let me forget that I’m not really with them), but to combat the OP’s game of Oppression Olympics by harking back to the same motifs that characterized the victimization and murders of my family, and friends’ families, my people is not a good look.
Who said anything about a race card? And using inflammatory language and strawmanning techniques won’t work. Frankly, I don’t give a fuck about consoling you for your the tragedy of your history. Especially because you can’t even take an objective look outside of what you feel and look at the facts. Isreal is an extension of white priviledge and white Jews in America benefit from that same privilege. No matter how many people might make you feel “other,” you aren’t being killed for it…no here in America. Black people ARE! Those are facts, no matter how much it hurts your fee-fees. If it matters to you, I can surely provide the links that show the hierarchy of the five major media companies, from the owners an chair men down to the producers in their pay. Pointing out that a VAST majority are white Jews is anti-semitic how? I could give less than a fuck about Zionist conspiracies, elitism or any of that shit. All I care about is the representation of my people in the media, how that representation ties into our daily lives, and who benefits from that representation. Any objective research into the issue will turn up one answer: white Jews in the industry. Show me where I’m wrong or reaching. Show me where thats a conspiracy and not a fact, please. I’d love to be proven wrong.
Nobody is denying the utter shit storm that Jews have experienced throughout history, trust me its been pounded into our skulls since kindegarten. However, the Jewish community in the US is not suffering from that shit storm, aside from the emotional ramifications. The community is strong and powerful. Your feelings are still hurt, but your children aren’t being targeted. Your women are not being demonized and exploited in the same go. Pointing these things out does not make me Anti-Semitic. It makes me observant and able to follow the FACTS. See that word I used? Fact? It means that no amount of your tears will change the truth of the thing
