kanye west*Black entertainer Kanye West has now joined the elite ranks of some of our most powerful and prestigious Black freedom fighters, such as Martin Luther King, Marcus Mosiah Garvey, Malcolm X, Bishop Desmond Tutu, the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, and even our late great freedom fighter Nelson Mandela.

RELATED STORY: Louis Farrakhan Agrees With Kanye West’s Opinion About Jewish People

For they—like Kanye—were all labeled “anti-Semites” by the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith. Not that they are, or ever were, “anti-Semites,” but they all have advocated setting Blacks on an economic course for their survival and advancement, a route to true power that is exactly the opposite of the dead-end path Jewish financiers of negro leadership have demanded that we go down—and this deeply troubles Jewish watchdogs like Abraham Foxman and all the other “liberal” Jewish groups.

Kanye West took great umbrage at the ADL insult and at his Chicago concert last week he was defiant, telling the crowd that he spoke with The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan and that he wasn’t apologizing for anything, saying to the contrary that he will be standing up to his accusers even stronger.

And in that “turn up” vain we will clearly show the political power wielded by Jews is the result, the consequence, the product of their immense economic base and superstructure—not the other way around. Bro. Kanye’s recent powerful statements about his frustrating foray into the clothing and apparel business show the workings of a man who has chosen to be more than an entertainer: he is wisely seeking to use the wealth he has generated to build a truly lasting economic foundation. As The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews, Vol. 2, shows, Jewish dominance in the fields of business, trade, commerce, and finance started with Black labor—from the Southern cottonfield investments of the Rothschilds, to the Alabama slave-dealing of the Lehman Brothers, to the Jewish “needle trade” sweatshops of New York. Kanye West’s attempt to penetrate that history and those business connections is a formidable venture and worthy of full Black support. It is also why Abraham Foxman and the Jews have targeted him so directly. They are protecting their market, not “exposing anti-Semites.” Make no mistake about it.


In his latest ploy Foxman says he decries West’s comment in a radio interview on November 26, when, explaining the massive resistance to Pres. Barack Obama, the Hip Hop star said, “Black people don’t have the same level of connections as Jewish people.” Foxman feigned outrage: “There it goes again, the age-old canard that Jews are all-powerful and control the levers of power in government.” By all standards of honesty and truth West’s comment could not have been more benign. Indeed, Bro. Kanye’s comment is so understated that it might almost be considered naïve.Let us look carefully at this contentious issue of Jewish power, but not through Black eyes, or Kanye’s eyes, or even Minister Farrakhan’s eyes. Let us look solely and exclusively through Jewish eyes.

Foxman’s own organization, the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith (ADL), once had a president named Simon Wolf, who in 1926 wrote with evident pride:

“We all know that the first bankers of the world—Rothschilds—are Jews; we know they control not only the money market, but also the political destiny of the European world….[M]ercantile enterprises owe a vast debt to the Jew. You need but look at the streets of the principal cities of the world on Jewish holidays, and you will at once see that trade is in mourning; the busy hum is hushed; everything is languid.”

In fact, according to the Universal Jewish Encyclopedia (1948),

“In Eastern Europe there were very recently countries in which 90% or more of the trades was in Jewish hands; in some branches of trade and export they controlled the entire 100%.”

Now that has to be “anti-Semitism”! Kanye did not come anywhere near such statements. Let’s go back to a time when Black people felt this Jewish influence most acutely.

The leading Jewish historian and rabbi Marc Lee Raphael wrote that “Jewish merchants played a major role in the slave trade.” Nine out of ten Africans were shipped to Brazil, where Jewish “connections” were so influential that on Jewish holidays the slave auctions had to be postponed, because all the buyers and sellers of African men, women, and children were at the synagogues—“preying.” Indeed, Wiesenthal Center scholar Dr. Harold Brackman has pointed out that “slave trading in Brazil became a ‘Jewish’ mercantile specialty in much the same way it had been in early medieval Europe.”
