This is a great article that really enlightened me to the Jewish perspective on things. To be honest, I'm very unaware of just how much the Jewish are persecuted. And yeah, anti-jew rhetoric is ridiculous in the black culture. Instead of trying decide which culture is the bigger victim, we should be working together and supporting each other.
Also, the grand irony of hip-hop being anti-semitic isn't lost on me. It's a musical medium that was built on being rebellious and giving voice to those without one. I was pretty disappointed myself by the statements of our icons, but maybe it's because of the generation gap between us. Things were different then.
Great article! Really enjoyed it.
