    Cannon Frustrated as Black Community Turns on Him, Calls Him a ‘Sell-Out for Apologizing’ for Anti-Semitism

    Cannon Frustrated as Black Community Turns on Him, Calls Him a ‘Sell-Out for Apologizing’ for Anti-Semitism

    Cannon sat down with a rabbi for his podcast.

    I blogged about Nick Cannon’s apology for his anti-Semitic comments. I noted that quite a few black people lashed out at him for the apology.

    Cannon also noticed the backlash. I guess he now realizes you cannot please everyone.

    You can read about his anti-Semitic comments in my post on July 15, which includes his desire to learn from his mistake.

    Cannon spoke to Simon Wiesenthal Center associate dean Rabbi Abraham Cooper, who encouraged the TV host to post a formal apology on social media.

    The apology came out the next day, reiterating his determination to educate and connect with the Jewish community.

    Cannon proved he meant everything he said in his apology because he posted a picture of him sitting with Cooper for an episode of his podcast.

    The responses, though.

    The replies to his apology will not surprise you, unfortunately. It made me sick to read one person insisting the apology proves “that black celebrity is completely controlled by white supremacy.”

    Others could not believe that Cannon apologized for speaking the truth. A few people thought the PR firms forced it out of him.

    Cannon had enough.

    A post shared by NICK CANNON (@nickcannon) on

    Cooper came out with nothing but praise for Cannon, saying the TV host “appears to be someone who’s genuine in his desire to make sure people understand his apology.” It wasn’t just an apology, but something that will actually bring people together.

    Cannon is not in a good place. His friend Ryan Bowers committed suicide, which led to Cannon admit he barely rose “from my own dark contemplation of continuing my physical existence on this planet.”

    My experience is that many blacks are anti-semitic without any knowledge or experience with Jews. They imbibed their hatred of Jews with their mother’s milk. (Inside joke.)

    They think Jews are the landlords who overcharge for vermin-ridden apartments. They think Jews are the local storekeepers who overcharge for groceries and sundries, who view the black customers with distrust and suspicion, and who do not hire black kids even for menial jobs.

    For some black entertainer (who I’d never heard of before) to come up with anti-semitic comments does not surprise me.

    Was Cannon’s apology sincere? I doubt it, but I am willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. He probably came by his hatred of Jews honestly, and he might be honest when he claims a desire to learn.

      This is very interesting. So like whites, are are born privileged and are therefore racists whether they think they are or not, is it possible that blacks are born anti-Semites, whether they think they are or not? When we automatically send all the whites at work off to the conference room to dialog about learning how now to be racist, should we reserve a second conference room where we automatically send all the black to learn how not to be anti-Semitic?

      (Of course, any Black who protests he is not anti-Semitic is “fragile” and unwoke, and is most in need of this training.)

    What is Cannon apologizing for, exactly? Being a Jew-hater or being an idiot who repeated some of the dumbest theories ever created?

    He’s still got his hate-whitey cred going. He never made any fake apology for those remarks. That must be worth something with the broader black community.

    You can read about his anti-Semitic comments in my post on July 15, which includes his desire to learn from his mistake.

    It wasn’t a mistake. He meant every word of it.
