What’s up with all these “Nick Cannon lost his job faster than Breonna Taylor’s killers” takes?

ViacomCBS doesn’t run a police department. What Nick Cannon said was wildly anti-Semitic.

We should be allying with marginalized groups, not beating them down. Stop defending Nick.
If you read what Nick Cannon said it’s indefensible.

Aside from calling White people a “little less” (inferior) and calling White and Jewish people “savages,” he said all this nonsense.

I’m not down with this. We can’t accept this kind of bigotry.…
The fact I’m being called a coon for calling out Nick Cannon’s bigotry is truly wild. Unbelievable really. Especially after spending half a decade amplifying BLM and opposing Trump. If you’re defending Nick Cannon hit the unfollow button. I don’t want you behind me.
We spend a lot of time covering the radical right at @RanttMedia so maybe it’s easier for me to spot when rhetoric veers into the dangerously anti-Semitic. What Nick Cannon said perpetuates the idea of a global Jewish conspiracy—logic right-wing radicals have used to attack Jews.
During the BLM protests, right-wing wackos were trying to claim it was a fake movement being “controlled” by Soros (their favorite Jewish boogeyman).

We have to call out anti-Semitism not only because it’s wrong, but because it intersects with other forms of racist thought.
Clearly a lot of people need to do some research on the language of anti-Semitism.

Among those who called me a coon have #BlackLivesMatter in their bio.

Let me tell you something: you can’t ask everyone to be an ally of your cause but not come to the defense of Jews.
I’ll use this moment to educate.

Anti-Semitic attacks range from alleging “control” or calling them animals.

Nick Cannon called Jews savages and animals while alleging they have vast control. He used two of the worst tropes.

Watch at timestamp 48:20:
I really didn’t expect to get this much backlash for saying Nick Cannon was wrong for calling Jews savages, animals, & alleging a vast Jewish control conspiracy.

Jews spoke out during the Muslim ban. They protested with BLM. I will unapologetically defend them. They are allies.
I'm also going to point out that Nick Cannon's attacks on white people as savages and animals were wrong. These stupid generalizations do nothing but divide.

Are all those white people who protested with BLM animals too? Let's be smart here and not torch our allies, please.
After calling out Nick Cannon’s anti-Semitism I got a lot of hate, but I’ve since received hundreds of supportive DMs here & on IG from members of the Jewish community and fellow anti-racists

I tried to respond to everyone but if I didn’t: thank you. I’ll always have your back.
