Rapper Talib Kweli Greene Attacks Israellycool As “Racist Site”

Almost two years ago, rapper, Israellycool contributor Deebo wrote a post about rapper Talib Kweli Greene, who had gone on a Twitter rampage he characterized as “antisemitic.” Here’s one example:

Clearly, Greene did not like the insinuation he may be antisemitic (no-one ever does). In fact, he is someone who presents himself as anti-racist and even anti-antisemite. Yet he continues to throw around the word “Jew” wantonly. For instance, he regularly calls people “fake Jew” – even when they are clearly not pretending to be Jewish.


(Imagine for a moment if I started calling people “fake Blacks” – including those who never represented themselves as African-American).

And this was his response to someone who asked him to debate someone else on the “dangers of the Jew in the African-American community.” Note what he doesn’t say.


So form your own conclusions.

Be that as it may, Deebo’s post somehow made it back to Green’s radar, and he launched an attack against the site.

And it’s apparently not his first time.

Given he has over 1.15 million followers, you can imagine I have been receiving a far bit of hate. And when you have supporters like this

you may want to examine your words closer.

Update: Imagine if I tweeted to him “Calm down, Black boy”

Update: It is not looking any better.

Update: And that’s all folks!
