The normalization of racism. Thanks Trump and Magas
Don't forget Kyrie Irving, Kanye West, and to a lesser extent Dave Chapelle normalizing antisemitism. The last time people talked openly this way about us Jews, it didn't end well for us. It's funny, in my mind the blacks and the Jews always had a "thing" together, a shared unspoken understanding of past slavery, atrocities, and being the underdog. Blazing Saddles, that's my idea of these marginalized groups, leaning on each other as they did during the civil rights movement. I know the recording industry has its own issues, but come on, it felt like it used to be both of us vs. "the man". Now antisemitism is being normalized by prominent black people, it sucks. And what's weirder, is they're doing it in a time where the MAGA movement is real. The near-enemy is always easier to attack than your real enemy I guess.
