Jewish Community Upset By Kanye West’s Comments


Looks like Kanye’s comments during last week’s NY press run have gotten him in a bit of a hot seat. With the The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) now on his coat-tail, the group is demanding an apology calling Ye’s words about the Jewish community extremely offensive and unnecessary.

“Man, let me tell you about George Bush and oil money and Obama and no money,” said Kanye in an interview with Power 105. “People want to say Obama can’t make these moves or he’s not executing. That’s because he ain’t got those connections. Black people don’t have the same level of connections as Jewish people. Black people don’t have the same connection as oil people.”

Abraham H. Foxman, the ADL National Director then responded to Kanye’s opinion with some thoughts of his own. “If the comments are true as reported, this is classic anti-Semitism,”Said Foxman.”There it goes again, the age-old canard that Jews are all-powerful and control the levers of power in government. As a celebrity with a wide following, Kanye West should know better. We hope that he will take responsibility for his words, understand why they are so offensive, and apologize to those he has offended.”
