Jay Z, Carmelo Anthony Wear ‘Anti-White’ Symbols

From Hollywood Life:

Jay Z Sets Off Controversy Wearing Chain From ‘Whites Are The Devil’ Group

By Andrew Gruttadaro | April 6, 2014 
Jay made a rather shocking statement at a Brooklyn Nets game on April 1, rocking a medallion from the Five Percent Nation, an off-shoot of Islam that preaches harsh tenets like “white men are the devil.”

Jay Z may be more of an activist than he lets on. The 44-year-old rapper raised eyebrows at the April 1 Brooklyn Nets game by taking his courtside seat with a Five Percent Nation chain around his neck, seemingly advocating for some shocking, racially charged beliefs…

And, lest we forget, Jay Z was even an owner of the Brooklyn Nets, until he had to sell it when he became a sports agent.

The Five Percent Nation is an off-shoot of the Nation of Islam that preaches that black people are the fathers and mothers of civilization, the Christian god is nothing more than a ghost, and most shockingly, that white men are the devil.

When asked by a reporter if the Five Percent medallion held any meaning for him, Jay shrugged and said, “A little bit,” according to Page Six. And it must, because the basketball game wasn’t the first time the rapper was caught rocking the bling — Jay also wore it at his Magna Carta World Tour show in Philadelphia on Jan. 29.

NBA megastar Carmelo Anthony has been seen wearing a chain similar to Jay’s as well.

Where is the outrage?

But Jay Z is not a full-fledged member of the controversial group. “Jay Z is not an active member — no one has vouched for him,” Saladin Allah, a representative of the Five Percent Nation’s upstate’s region, told Page Six. "[But] it was always understood that you don’t wear the ­regalia if you don’t totally subscribe to the life.”

Noted.

If Jay Z does “totally subscribe to the life,” his persona as a universally loved emcee will definitely be at stake because of the Five Percent Nation’s strict beliefs and harsh outlook towards caucasians.

“Whiteness is weak and wicked and inferior — basically just an errant child who needs to be corrected,” Michael Muhammed Knight, an author of two books on the radical nation, says. “The rationale is that the black man is God and created the universe, and is physically stronger and intellectually stronger and more righteous naturally.”

“The first lesson I learned from the Five Percent was simple: F**k white people. Seriously. White people are devils,” Knight adds. “For me, it is about who is marked as privileged in the power relations of this society.” …

So if the NBA is going to start banning people from playing in their league or even watching the games for their racist views, what about Carmelo Anthony and Jay Z? Since they both wear a chain in honor of the rabidly racist cult, the ‘Five Percenters.’

    No problem.

    I stopped watching ghettoball after the Phoenix Suns’ championship games in the 90′s.

    I had noted that traveling, carrying the ball, other violations were no longer being called and the general populace of the teams having gone from something respectable to downright street-trash filth left me switching over to reruns of the Lawrence Welk show.

    So, no problem, NBA. I have a remote. Don’t have pay-for TV either. Thus, there are very few ghettoball games on when I channel-surf.

    You’ve done it to yourselves. You have chosen to separate yourselves into a false cocoon of stylized bullcrap. Little thugs, taking their playtime way too seriously.

    Go to hell.

    Are not Obama and JZ tight? Wasn’t Obama in the back room of the 40/40 club rubbing elbows with JZ during the Benghazi terrorist attack? Obama made a public comment about Clippers owner Sterling private conversation being “incredibly offensive”. I wonder what he thinks of the public display by JZ?

    The hypocrisy of the press/msm is deep and down-right evil.

    Peace!

    I am Saladin Allah, the Five Percenter who was cited/quoted in the NY Post article ‘Jay Z is blinging it black’, and have issued a public statement on my website entitled “Open Letter to the NY Post.” You can read it at this link: http://www.atlantisschool.blogspot.com

    Thanks & Peace,

    Thanks for the clarification Saladin. A thinking compassionate soul can understand the difference between what was printed and what is as you say it is.

    Unfortunately, the damage has been done and Mr. Knight did no positive service to your organization/religion. Hate is being spread and no where in your open letter did you fully denounce what Mr. Knight said. You basically said that he can not speak for you on the meaning of things.

    Peace
