Nick Cannon, a former host of "America’s Got Talent," is being called out by a Jewish blogger for spouting racist and anti-Semitic tropes on his podcast "Cannon’s Class" on June 30. 

Cannon hosted Professor Griff, known for his anti-Semitic commentary on his podcast, where both Cannon and Griff promoted anti-Semitic conspiracies while claiming that black people can’t be anti-Semitic because they are the real Semites.

“When you have a person who has the lack of pigment, the lack of melanin that they know they will be annihilated, therefore they know that however they got the power, they have a lack of compassion, melanin comes with compassion,” Cannon said. 

“Melanin comes with soul, that we call it soul, we soul brothers and sisters, that’s the melanin that connects us so the people don’t have it, are, and I’m going to say this carefully, are a little less and where the term actually comes from, and I’m going to bring it back around to Minister Farrakhan where they may not have the compassion,” Cannon added.

According to the Daily Caller, both Professor Griff and Cannon also praise Louis Farrakhan, the leader of the Nation of Islam known for anti-Semitic rhetoric.

“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,” Cannon continued.

“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 says, suggesting that white people and Jewish people are the ‘true savages’.

“So I say all that to say the context when we speak of ‘Jewish people,’ white people, Europeans, the Illuminati — they were doing that as survival tactics to stay on this planet,” Cannon concluded.

This comes after Philadelphia Eagles player DeSean Jackson promoted anti-Semitic and anti-vaccine content on his personal Instagram, also praising known anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan.
