Kyrie Irving Condemns Hate Speech


Last week NBA player Kyrie Irving got into a heated exchange with a sports reporter who asked him to defend promoting the documentary 'Hebrews to Negros: American Negro Wake Up' to his 17 million Instagram followers [click here if you missed that]. 

Kyrie takes responsibility for offending Jewish people and donates money to anti-hate groups...

From CNN
Kyrie Irving and the Brooklyn Nets announced on Wednesday that they will both donate $500,000 towards anti-hate organizations after the point guard tweeted a documentary deemed to be antisemitic last week.
In a joint statement between Irving, Nets and the Anti-Defamation League – a “nonprofit organization devoted to fighting antisemitism and all types of hate that undermine justice and fair treatment for every individual” – the 30-year-old said he took “responsibility” for the “negative impact” his post had towards the Jewish community.
“I oppose all forms of hatred and oppression and stand strong with communities that are marginalized and impacted every day,” Irving said.
“I am aware of the negative impact of my post towards the Jewish community and I take responsibility. I do not believe everything said in the documentary was true or reflects my morals and principles.
“I am a human being learning from all walks of life and I intend to do so with an open mind and a willingness to listen. So from my family and I, we meant no harm to any one group, race or religion of people, and wish to only be a beacon of truth and light.”

Hebrews to Negroes was just crap full of lies. Same thing Farrakhan has been pushing for years. There are issues between Blacks and Jews but they weren’t in that documentary.

Sad, black folks can’t even stand with any leadership. We could all look to NAACP to make statements like the Jues have ADL, but nah, WE wouldn’t want any groups or leaders speaking for US.

He should not have had to defend himself.

Y'all's favorites are in a new film.

This is modern day lynching!! They sent 8 ooish folks that probably never watched an NBA game in their life to sit FRONT ROW to intimidate and heckle this man for speaking HIS truth, HIS opinion. On the other hand y’all want kin folks to speak up and fight against the system and when they do y’all kick dirt in their face. Go back and read your comments on the previous Kyrie post. Sickening. The same ones that complained about Aunt Jemima being on a pancake box were the same ones mad when they took her off. Now y’all mad cuz you left with the Quaker Oats man and ooish azz to kiss. Just too comfortable being loud and dumb so get used to being they new slaves.

I am tired of the ashkenazi weaponizing the word anti semitic to be thrown on folks, who do not cosign their phuckery on this planet, don't worry fake jews your time is almost up. Revelation 3:9 Behold I will make the synagogue of satan, who say they are Jews and are not, I will make the liars come and bow before your feet, and they will learn I have loved you. The Crone Mother Saturn aka Karma may take her sweet time, but trust she is on the way Ase!!!!

@8:57
If black folk dont like what some other race says about us we say something too.
Why be mad at Jewish people for standing up for themselves?

Wow! this is public humiliation on a next level. "They" wrote a hostage apology\joint statement for Kyrie to read out loud and share to the media. And forced him to pay 500k in money!! All because of a tweet about a book NO ONE HAS READ.

@8:57 .... Not the same...don't compare it to the Black Community. We never got tangibles\ cash money for our pain and suffering. Where is reparations $$$$ for Foundation Black Americans and the forced and free labor that contributed to the U.S. Economy. The U.S. Government OWES every Foundation Black American money!

@3:42 Is that what all Black women do? You seem to have it all figured out. So perceptive and wise. There is a lot of anti-black sentiments in Black spaces. Why? Not only due to white obsession with Black spaces, but also because all white supremists ain't white.
