American Celebrity Nick Cannon Spreads Anti-Semitic Conspiracy Theories; Blacks Are the "Real Jews."

Forbes reports that the American celebrity Nick Cannon is spreading the anti-Semitic conspiracy theory that Blacks are the "real Jews" and that Jewish people "stole" their identity from black people. Read more here. This conspiracy theory is not isolated. It has some purchase among some African Americans. It was the belief of the African Americans who committed terrorist acts against Jews in Jersey City, NJ late last year. 

The chapter in Bieganski the Brute Polak that focuses on Black-Jewish conflict is helpful in understanding this conflict.

  1. It seems to me that many Jews, while seeking and finding Polish anti-Semitism under every bed, look the other way when it comes to African-American anti-Semitism.


Bieganski the Blog exists to further explore the themes of the book Bieganski the Brute Polak Stereotype, Its Role in Polish-Jewish Relations and American Popular Culture.
These themes include the false and damaging stereotype of Poles as brutes who are uniquely hateful and responsible for atrocity, and this stereotype's use in distorting WW II history and all accounts of atrocity.
This blog welcomes comments from readers that address those themes. Off-topic and anti-Semitic posts are likely to be deleted.
