Nick Cannon Called Whites and Jews ‘True Savages’ and ‘Closer to Animals’ — Now He’s Unemployed
“They have to rob, steal, rape, kill and fight in order to survive,” Nick Cannon said about white people as a whole in a podcast last month with former Public Enemy rapper Professor Griff — who is known himself for having said that Jews are “wicked” many years ago.
Cannon was the executive producer and chairman of TeenNick and the executive producer of MTV’s Wild ‘N Out — he’s since been fired from the network.
Among the comments made, Cannon said whites are “a little less,” “closer to animals” then other races, and “[whites] had to be savages, they had to be barbaric, because they’re in these Nordic mountains, they’re in these rough torrential environments.” Cannon made strange connections between skin pigment colors and the actions and beliefs each race has a result.
His guest, Professor Griff, was kicked from Public Enemy in 1989 for saying all Jews are “wicked.” To this controversy, Griff told Cannon that “I’m hated now because I told the truth.” Cannon said he was “speaking facts.”
“Semitic people are black people” Cannon said in the episode. “You can’t be anti-Semitic when we are the Semitic people.”
This slew of comments did not please his employer, ViacomCBS, where he has worked for over two decades.
“ViacomCBS’s statement on the firing said, “We are deeply troubled that Nick has failed to acknowledge or apologize for perpetuating anti-Semitism, and we are terminating our relationship with him.”
Interestingly, Breitbart reported that Charlamagne Tha God reacted to the news by saying Cannon’s firing proves that Jews “have the power.”
He said that white people have a “history of mass racial violence in this country” and “that’s what you can do when you have the power. … Listen, Nick is my guy. I hate it had to be him, but that’s what you can do when you have the power. And if there’s one thing Jewish people have showed us, it’s they have the power.”
