When a white person says anything that even seems a bit racist, the full force of America's institutions come down on them, cancelling them from all polite society and ensuring they never enjoy life again.
When a black man like Nick Cannon says blatantly racist things like calling white people and Jews "savages" and "less than," he gets his own TV special on ABC to talk about how amazing he is!
Look at this empowering promo ABC made for the interview:
And look a this tweet from the L.A. Times just for fun. Can you imagine a white celebrity receiving this kind of love and victimhood status if they said black people are "true savages?"
Here's what Cannon had to say in the interview:
"I'm not seeking forgiveness, I'm seeking for-growth. I've always said that apologies are empty."
Did you hear that? He doesn‘t need forgiveness or to apologize. All he has to do is talk about his spiritual journey!
But it's okay, guys, because this spiritual journey goes BEYOND apologizing:
"In Hebrew they call it, you know, teshuvah, the process of not only you know, repenting, but through that — if you're ever met with a similar situation that you make a different decision. That goes beyond apologizing. And I'm on this journey of atonement because it's the right thing to do."
If you're wondering why he's invoking Hebrew here, it's because he gets his theology from cult leader and avowed race hustler Louis Farrakhan.
It's no surprise then that Cannon's understanding of the word "teshuvah" –which is used in passages such as 2 Samuel 11:1 to refer to the "return" of the year in spring or in Job 34:36 as a "return" of an answer – is wrong.
Its root word is used to describe "returning or turning back" to dust, to a place, or to God. Psalm 51, where David begs God's forgiveness, is described as such a return.
But for Nick Cannon, this "have mercy on me, O God" is replaced by "going beyond" apologizing.
Sure, he's "atoning." But whose atonement is he seeking? The millions of people he insulted? The Holy God of heaven and earth?
Of course not! He's a woke racist, and he's seeking atonement from other woke racists.
The ABC host actually asked Cannon one good question around his and Farrakhan's beliefs that black people are the true Israelites (and that everyone else is "less than").
"Is that your belief that it [Judaism] is the birthright of the black people?"
Cannon's response was just as stupid as you'd expect:
"One thing that can't be debated is that we all originated from Africa."
Man I miss the days when Nick Cannon only did comedy on Nickelodeon. What a joke.
