Nick Cannon, an actor and singer, recently unbosomed some interesting anthropological theories.
Melanin comes with compassion. Melanin comes with soul. 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 [laughs], are a little less, and where the term comes from, and bringing it all the way back around to Minister Farrakhan, to where they may not have the compassion . . . . So therefore, the only way they can act is evil. [emphasis added] They have to rob, steal, rape, kill and fight in order to survive. So these people who didn’t have what we had, and when I say we I speak of the melanated people, they had to be savages. They had to be barbaric. . . . so they’re acting as animals. So they’re the ones that are closer to animals.
Mr. Cannon also claimed blacks are “descendants from God himself,” and discussed “the idea of having to define myself as a god.” He bragged about the power of melanin. I must lack soul, or, since I’m closer to an animal, I don’t have the intelligence to understand melanated wisdom. Still, Mr. Cannon’s claims are implicit in the way media talk about race. The very phrase “people of color” implies that whites lack something.
Media sometimes call white advocates or race realists “white supremacists,” “Nazis,” or something close to terrorists. Still, I’ve never met a white advocate who believes his skin color gives him magic powers. I’ve never even heard of any anyone who believes white people are “gods” or who thinks blacks only do evil.
When it comes to who robs, rapes, kills, and fights, the evidence shows blacks do these things more often than whites. They are doing it especially enthusiastically right now because Black Lives Matter undermines police. Though whites are often victims, the melanin “soul” connection is certainly not strong enough to prevent black viciousness towards other blacks.
Mr. Cannon said that whites are “closer to animals” because of our race. If a white person said this about blacks, his podcast would be banned and he would be deplatformed.
This hasn’t happened. You can still find Mr. Cannon’s podcast on Spotify. Mr. Cannon did pay a price — CBS dropped him and his talk show was put on hold — though not because he said bad things about whites. It’s because of what he said about Jews.
“The Semitic people are black people,” he said, arguing that blacks could therefore not be anti-Semitic without being self-hating. He said this while discussing the music industry with Richard “Professor Griff” Griffin, who left the rap group Public Enemy after he criticized Jews. The two discussed whether Jews control the music industry and whether some are “scared of the truth.” There was nothing about their being closer to animals or always doing evil. And yet, almost all the media coverage about Mr. Cannon’s interview was about his “anti-Semitic” comments.

- “Nick Cannon’s planned daytime talk show is pushed back amid anti-Semitism controversy,” CNN
- “Nick Cannon Dropped by ViacomCBS Over Anti-Semitic Comments,” Rolling Stone
Few major outlets noted Mr. Cannon’s anti-white remarks. Why would they? What he said was just a cruder version of something you might read in the Washington Post, the New York Times, or Newsweek. There is no white equivalent to the Anti-Defamation League.
And so, Mr. Cannon met with a rabbi from the Simon Wiesenthal center, and did what was required.
This must have helped, but Mr. Cannon hasn’t been “canceled.” He didn’t apologize to whites, nor was there pressure for him to do so. Fox is keeping him on the television program “Masked Singer.” His upcoming daytime program hasn’t been canceled, just delayed. Sean “Diddy” Combs offered him a job. “Charlamagne Tha God” defended him and spoke frankly about collective racial interests.
No one should be surprised by this. Fifty percent of black voters have a favorable opinion of Louis Farrakhan. Mr. Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam are a black racial vanguard for their people. Blacks appreciate this. The mainstream media doesn’t, but mostly because Mr. Farrakhan keeps insulting Jews.
If he didn’t, he would probably get the same welcome Al Sharpton does today. Mr. Sharpton began his career with crazed rants about “Greek homos” stealing the secrets of “astrology” from blacks, and defending a notorious hate-crime hoax. Now, he stands next to Bill de Blasio painting “Black Lives Matter” on the street outside Trump Tower.
It’s OK to hate whites. Anyone can insult us and get away with it. That is because most whites are not racially conscious and do not defend those who speak for them. At the same time, whites suffer far greater penalties if they speak in defense of their race, sometimes especially at the hands of conservatives.
White advocates face unprecedented deplatforming, legal persecution, and even physical attack. The mask is off. Whatever his successes or failures, President Donald Trump frightened oligarchs and journalists into showing their true colors. It’s far harder now to pretend that America is a free country.
What holds whites back is our collective fear. Our opponents’ power seems great, but it’s brittle. Censorship, economic blackmail, and force are their last remaining weapons. We have the truth, and if we survive these conditions, we will win.
