Nick Cannon should gear up for some backlash. The “America’s Got Talent” host and ex to singer Mariah Carey has made racist and antisemitic remarks on his “Cannon’s Class” podcast. The June 30 episode now making headlines saw Cannon, 39, refer to white people and Jews as “the true savages.” Also controversial was the rapper and TV personality’s guest of choice. He was interviewing rapper Professor Griff, himself known for making antisemitic remarks.

A portion of the podcast saw the “Wild ‘N Out” star link natural skin pigment, melanin, to intellectual capacity. The claim has reportedly been disproven by research bodies.
Jointly with his guest, Nick also spoke positively of Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan – Louis recently accused Bill Gates and pandemic expert Anthony Fauci of conspiring to depopulate the planet using COVID-19 vaccines. Nick then linked melanin to violence.
“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,” he said. More below.
Cannon continued: “Melanin comes with soul, that we call it soul, we soul brothers and sisters, that’s the melanin that connects us so the people that 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,”
Speaking of when “they” were “sent to the Mountains of Caucasus,” the podcast host added that the sun began to “deteriorate” and that “they” acted “out of fear,” then linking this to acting out of “deficiency.” “So therefore the only way they can act is evil,” he added.
Prior to making his headline-making remark, the “Me Sexy” rapper listed people he claims to be without higher levels of melanin. For Cannon, that’s Jews, white people, Europeans, and the Illuminati. He stated that they were forced to act violently to survive, adding that they are “closer to animals.”
“They have to rob, steal, rape, kill and fight in order to survive,” he stated, continuing: “So they’re the ones closer to animals, they’re the ones that are actually the true savages.”
For Cannon, it’s not possible to be both a Black American and an antisemite. The reason, for Cannon, being that blacks themselves are Semitic.
The episode’s filming date, per The Jerusalem Post, dates back to 2019, with it having been reposted at the end of June. Cannon’s guest, rapper Professor Griff (Richard Griffin) was kicked out of his Public Enemy rap group after his antisemitic remarks in interviews. 1989 saw Griffin claim that Jews are responsible for the “majority of wickedness” around the world while speaking to The Washington Times.
