There is a new Black-Jewish coalition in town and it’s composed of 170 entertainment leaders who purport to oppose racism and anti-Semitism in the industry. The goal of the Black Jewish Alliance would be a worthy one, if the purpose was to right wrongs done to Blacks and Jews in Hollywood, notwithstanding the self-admitted influence the Jewish community wields in the movie making and record industries.
But given the ADL, American Jewish Committee and Jewish groups’ work to defame, isolate and destroy the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam, this is another move against him and what’s good for the Black community, free artists and self-determined self-expression.
Any alliance needs an enemy, and Jewish groups have attached that enemy label to Minister Farrakhan. It’s a lie. But these Satanic forces are relentless in their assaults on a man with over six decades of service to a besieged Black community. They fight the Minister’s work to free Black people from the grip of Whites and paternalistic Jews. Such freedom would not only bring more artistic independence but also increased economic, political and cultural power. That power could be used to end the exploitation of artists and help free their people.
Min. Farrakhan’s influence among Black artists and entertainment leaders springs from his deep love and commitment to the full development of Black people. Unlike corporate bosses, the Minister wants our cultural giants to grow in knowledge, wisdom and spirit that increases and promotes power to change reality for the better.
The lyrical and theatrical prowess of these artists is second to their value as living, breathing human beings. They are more than commodities used to make money. Corporate masters want to use artists and performers as unwittingly tools to promote White supremacy and denigrate Black people through stereotypes and negative images promoted by industry leading Whites and Jews.
Not that Tiffany Haddish, Nick Cannon, Herbie Hancock, Billy Porter, and Antoine Fuqua, who are among the leaders in the Alliance, are necessarily co-signing an anti-Farrakhan agenda. No. Those who originated this idea likely talked about the ugly post-Trump, racially divided and antagonistic climate in the United States and how America’s leading export to the world can help change things.
Aaron Bay-Schuck, Co-Chairman & CEO of Warner Records, said Feb. 2, the Alliance is about “ensuring that our industry is doing its part to be a voice for hope, unity, and healing in our country.”
Those with hidden, nefarious motives always cloak their agendas with talk of do-gooding, grand intentions and bringing people together. But what we have seen is a concerted effort to separate Min. Farrakhan from Black artists and athletes who wield influence. Anyone seen near, or with, Min. Farrakhan must be kowtowed into repudiating him.
The “Alliance” also follows a highly acclaimed and successful album by Busta Rhymes released last year. It prominently featured Min. Farrakhan, the Nation of Islam, the Five Percenters and Father Allah Clarence 13X.
Before that was Jay Electronica’s “A Written Testimony,” released last March, which received similar acclaim and also included Min. Farrakhan and the Five Percenters in its themes. The long-awaited album was also highly successful.
Could the Alliance be a move to preemptively strike others who might follow in this unapologetic vein and dispense Supreme Wisdom for the rise of their people?
When the Minister delivered an important address, “The Criterion,” last July 4, the ADL castigated celebrities Nick Cannon, Stephen Jackson, TI, 2Chainz, Rick Ross, Jay Electronica, Stephanie Mills and Syleena Johnson for attending the event in Michigan. Revolt TV founder Sean “P Diddy” Combs, whose network livestreamed the Minister’s address, was ADL-condemned as were “musicians, athletes and celebrities” who “lend Farrakhan a measure of legitimacy.”
The Minister’s “legitimacy” comes from more than six decades of service, criticism and love for Black people and his willingness to call America to account for her evil. His unflinching voice of correction is respected by those who desire the truth and change and is rejected by those who want to persist in doing wrong.
Jewish groups and the ADL, once again, lied about the Minister’s July 4 message about divine chastisement America faces, the Covid-19 pestilence from heaven, and his condemnation of those who violate the law of Moses and do evil. His words were falsely, intentionally and deliberately miscast.
If the Alliance seeks healing, healing must include dealing with the role of Jewish execs in music and in cinema in degrading Black people in film and music—and often exploiting talent along the way.
In the historic book, “How Jews Created Hollywood,” Jewish authors document how this group developed an industry which from the beginning ridiculed Blacks.
Years ago, Joel Stein wrote a column, “Who runs Hollywood? C’mon,” for the Los Angeles Times. “I have never been so upset by a poll in my life. Only 22% of Americans now believe ‘the movie and television industries are pretty much run by Jews,’ down from nearly 50% in 1964. The Anti-Defamation League, which released the poll results … sees in these numbers a victory against stereotyping. Actually, it just shows how dumb America has gotten. Jews totally run Hollywood,” he wrote for the Los Angeles Times.
“How deeply Jewish is Hollywood? When the studio chiefs took out a full-page ad in the Los Angeles Times a few weeks ago to demand that the Screen Actors Guild settle its contract, the open letter was signed by: News Corp. President Peter Chernin (Jewish), Paramount Pictures Chairman Brad Grey (Jewish), Walt Disney Co. Chief Executive Robert Iger (Jewish), Sony Pictures Chairman Michael Lynton (surprise, Dutch Jew), Warner Bros. Chairman Barry Meyer (Jewish), CBS Corp. Chief Executive Leslie Moonves (so Jewish his great uncle was the first prime minister of Israel), MGM Chairman Harry Sloan (Jewish) and NBC Universal Chief Executive Jeff Zucker (mega-Jewish). … The person they were yelling at in that ad was SAG President Alan Rosenberg (take a guess). The scathing rebuttal to the ad was written by entertainment super-agent Ari Emanuel (Jew with Israeli parents) on the Huffington Post, which is owned by Arianna Huffington (not Jewish and has never worked in Hollywood.),” he added.
“But I don’t care if Americans think we’re running the news media, Hollywood, Wall Street or the government. I just care that we get to keep running them,” he said.
