BLACKS DISASSOCIATE COMPLETELY FROM KANYE WEST AND HIS MESSAGE, ASSERTING HE DOES NOT SPEAK FOR THEM IN ANY SHAPE, FORM OR FASHION
By Liz Reuben, editor
African Americans are outraged and are moving to disassociate themselves completely from Kanye West and his message. They want the public to know that Kanye West does not speak on their behalf. He speaks only for himself and not the African American people.
African Americans for the most part are of Christian beliefs, which fundamentally is rooted in Judaism, and have a history of empathizing with Jews and will continue to do so. Blacks are loathe that the apparent ignorance, sickness and foolishness of a man like Kanye West would arrogate himself to speak on their behalf.
Black pastors living in Israel have also disassociated themselves from him and his message. They are vociferously opposing his words and plead with the Jewish community to know that what Kanye West does not espouse African Americans or Black Americans' beliefs in any shape, form or fashion.
In fact, most African Americans and Black Americans side with the Jewish people, as most are Christians, again whose fundamental beliefs are rooted in Judaism, albeit Christians believe Jesus is their Messiah.
Most African Americans flat out reject Kanye West's messaging.
Most African Americans outright reject antisemitism in every shape, form or fashion.
THE HISTORY OF THE YEMENITE JEWRY
The Yemenite Jewish community has a unique history that distinguish them from Jews of other Arab world countries. The way they migrated to the country is different, the relationship they had to the Arab rulers and the Arab populous was different, and the Jewish culture and traditions that developed in Yemen are uniquely distinct. Today, the Jewish community of Yemen is teetering on the brink of extinction as most Yemenite Jews have left the country or been airlifted to Israel since the creation of the State.
