Nick Cannon, Black Lives Matter activist who is famous for his role as host of variety shows "The Masked Singer" and "America's Got Talent," made racially provocative remarks on a recent podcast episode that are being labeled both racist and anti-Semitic.
During his comments, Cannon declared that white people are "a little less," "closer to animals," "the true savages," and are "acting out of a deficiency, so the only way they can act is evil."
Cannon hosted a rapper named Professor Griff on the June 30 episode of his podcast, "Cannon's Class," where the two spoke warmly of the notoriously anti-Semitic Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, as well as shared their views on Jewish cabals secretly ruling the world.
Cannon said a lack of melanin in one's skin directly correlates to a lack of compassion.
"That's the melanin that connects us, so the people that don't have it are — and I'm going to say this carefully — are a little less." Cannon said.
"When they were sent to the Mountains of Caucasus, they didn't have the power of the sun. The sun started to deteriorate them. So, they're acting out of fear, they're acting out of low self-esteem, they're acting out of deficiency, so therefore the only way they can act is evil.
They have to rob, steal, rape, kill, and fight in order to survive. So these people who didn't have what we have, and when I say ‘we,' I speak of the melanated people, they had to be savages, they had to be barbaric because they're in these Nordic mountains, they're in these rough torrential environments, so they're acting as animals, so they're the ones closer to animals, they're the ones that are actually the true savages."
Cannon went on to make clear he was referencing "Jewish people, white people, Europeans, the Illuminati," in his remarks.
Professor Griff made clear his belief that black people were actually the Semitic race, and therefore it was impossible for him, a black man, to truly be anti-Semitic.
"In order for me to be anti-Semitic, I'd have to be anti-black man, anti-black woman, anti-black people, anti-Africa, anti-all other people," Griff said.
"Because the Semitic people are black people," Cannon added.
