    All those curious why he is writing this now:

    "When reading the dark squishy entrails of popular culture, meh-rage in the face of sustained prejudice is an indisputable sign of the coming Apatholypse: apathy to all forms of social justice. After all, if it’s OK to discriminate against one group of people by hauling out cultural stereotypes without much pushback, it must be OK to do the same to others. Illogic begets illogic."

    Basically don't undermine BLM by being anti-semetic. Stay focused.

    Israel and AIPAC got people brainwashed.

    that the confederate flag can exist for this long and it’s meaning and history can be changed over time, statues, parks, streets, highways and schools with confederate names can be embedded in society for decades...... but Jews can do the same thing. In America? :mjpls:


    Without this country Israel would not exist. And the word “Semite” is exclusive to Jews. But they’ve been using it for so long that it is now assumed that Semite = Jew.


    Kareem is about peace and love for all humans so I can’t knock it, but to say Jews did not play a role in the oppression of black people in this country is not correct.

    Someone who read the actual article.

    We can already see the writing on the wall where the powers that be are framing BLM as anti-semetic. Look at that WNBA co-owner. Its a right wing talking point that will only gather steam. But too many out of their depth niqqas are doing the most talking because they simply aren't interested or ever cared about reading the political tea leaves. The same way dumb ass Lord Jamar can go on Turning Point racist TV and bring up the George Soros conspiracy to tear down BLM, too stupid to know he's repeating Alt-right talk.

    Too many of these dudes are out of their league having these discussions. They know nothing about the current political climate and what's taking place outside of thinking they sound smart, but are dunderheads.

    These niqqas are dumb, and their lack of education and understanding of the current political landscape shows it.

    You too @Oldschooler

    I'm genuinely interested in what he's going to say. Kareem was on the front lines back with MLK, Ali, and Bill Russell plus I'm sure Cube respects the fukk out of him.
    Stop engaging. That person is an "educated" person who somehow doesn't know that Kareem is one of the more prolific black writers we've ever had PLUS Kareem has been on the Bill Russell fukk white people steeze when he was in the NBA and only stopped that recently.

    It's sad and really just shows how far the entire country has to go. It's just the American way to stereotype, talk about groups of people as monolithic and play the blame game and compete for sympathy I guess. When speaking on these issues you have to be strategic and very careful about the words you use. Black people are fighting a very uphill battle so being on code and disciplined in what we say and do is imperative. Otherwise, all our oppressors are going to look for something to point to to shyt on us.

    yeah, and that’s the thing. People are going to take it more than one way and only look at the critique while brushing aside facts.

    And using the anti-Semite card every time someone critics israel is lame.
