Former KKK leader David Duke, who was once an Imperial Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan from 1974 to 1975, attacked Nicki Minaj and the entire hip hop industry, going so far as to claim that black people were not really responsible for hip hop and rap.
In a related report by the Inquisitr, although the presence of Ku Klux Klan in Ferguson was blamed for the burning of the church attended by Michael Brown’s family, the KKK has been expanding during the Black Lives Matter protest movement and is said to be targeting Afghanistan war veterans. The Ku Klux Klan has also been trying to advertise their group as not being a hate group, and a recent KKK billboard was controversial since it claimed “it’s not racist to love your people.”
Besides being a former Ku Klux Klan leader, David Duke is a former political candidate who currently maintains his own online radio show where he offers political commentary on a variety of topics. This time Duke took on Nicki Minaj, claiming that the female rap artist would not be anything at all… if it were not for the Jews.
“Why do people blame blacks like Minaj?” Duke asked on his show according to The Source. “Because Minaj wouldn’t be a pimple on somebody’s rear end except for the fact that she is promoted by the Jewish record producers and the media, the mass media, the powerful media, that promotes absolute degenerates like her.”
Nicki Minaj’s Anaconda video may have made a YouTube viewing record, but the former KKK leader goes one step further and claims that black people are not responsible for this “sick and horrific” hip hop music.
“One of the Jewish producers who’s boasting about the fact that every one of the top 10 Billboard songs were those he controlled — even rap music is not something that blacks really are responsible for. It was the Jewish record producers who promoted this degenerate and sick and horrific music.”
The deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner have been the biggest political topic of this time, and although Nicki Minaj has not responded directly to the former KKK leader’s comments, she did decide to wade into those deep political waters.
“It’s sickening, and I’ve been reading so many people saying, ‘Why are we surprised?’ That’s what’s really sad: that we should somehow be used to being treated like animals,” Minaj said. “It’s gotten to the point where people feel like there’s no accountability: If you are law enforcement and you do something to a black person, you can get away with it.”
