RWR Editor’s note:
I hope RWR readers will take the time to read Ye’s response to the OpEd written by Ari Emmanuel. Ye is saying something more or as important as Ari Emmanuel.
The whole point of Ye’s original tweet was that power is only in the hands of a few who wag their fingers and cancel the economic and “humane” label of those they choose at will. Ye sought to draw attention to the corrupt and unfair business practices he claims are constant in his industry towards black stars. Since then, the only focus has been on a poorly written offensive tweet rather than the inclusion of the point the tweet is referring to.
The disproportionate bombing orchestrated by a small group of “business” people with Emmanuel at the helm with the sole intention of burying Ye’s livelihood and dehumanizing him is not only ironic but telling.
What does it say, you ask?
It seems to me that Ye’s indictment of a group of “business” people who wield unfathomable power to blow lives is on full display today.
YOU say and think and do what “We” allow and command, and if not, we will destroy you!
On Sunday, Kanye “Ye” West shared a disturbing photo of civil rights icon Emmett Till on his Instagram, along with a lengthy rant directed at American businessman Ari Emanuel saying, “You tried to destroy my life after all the money i’ve made.for “business” people.
Ari Emanuel, CEO of Endeavor, an entertainment and media agency that owns the UFC, wrote an op-ed for the Financial Times on Wednesday in which he argued that Kanye’s mental illness does not excuse his “anti-Semitic comments and racists”.
“Some of West’s behavior has been dismissed over time, citing mental illness, given that he was diagnosed with bipolar disorder after being hospitalized in 2016,” Emanuel wrote.
“However, mental illness is no excuse for racism, hatred or anti-Semitism… Millions of people affected by mental illness do not perpetuate hateful ideologies. Others dismiss his comments as mere words, but hateful words too easily turn into hateful actions,” he added.
After West tweeted that he intended to go “death con 3” against Jews, Emanuel has asked all companies associated with the Yeezy designer to sever connections with the rapper.
It can be recalled that Adidas announced that it would stop its partnership with Kanye West and Gap Inc. announced that he would drop the items he helped design from his stores. Balenciaga and Vogue also cut ties with the rapper.
After Emanuel’s comment, Kanye West responded on his Instagram on Thursday claiming that he lost $2 billion in one day due to the culture cancellation.
“Ari Emanuel, I lost $2 billion in one day and I’m still alive,” West wrote. “This is a love speech. I still love you. God still loves you. Money is not who I am. People are who I am.”
Amid growing backlash over the rapper’s anti-Semitic rants, the California campus of Kanye West’s unaccredited private school informed parents on Wednesday that it would close immediately, sparking their rally Sunday toward Emanuel.
Below is the snippet:
Can you find a place for the Donda Academy children to go to school that is well located for a school?
I have about 60 kids who have no place to be when they want to move.
They tried to dismantle our basketball team. These guys are being penalized for no reason.
Even professional athletes were threatened by their owners to disassociate.
This is what the modern #Blackmirror post-social warfare looks like… kids aren’t even off limits
– Economic lynching
– Digital lynching
– Bankrupt my social credit score
You tried to bankrupt Adidas and me at the same time
You tried to destroy my life after all the money I’ve made for the “business” people.
At least while I’m burning at the stake in front of the whole world… // Now everyone knows who they should really be afraid of.
And now everyone knows how much power your “employers” really have.
Force Roxie to sue me for 252 million after I gave her family 2 million
Only a truly powerful “business” person could have thought of this and sent her to do it.
To everyone in the world! // Take me as an example of what will happen if you show any frustration.
Your frustration doesn’t matter!
We declare today the day when no human can be human.
Please note that I have never physically harmed anyone.
I am…Ari Emmanuel:
Better yet, let me ask your older brother Rahm Emmanuel // Former Mayor of Chicago.
Rahm… You are a very powerful “business” person // Here I am… The richest black man in the world asking the same person who is destroying me to at least help these kids….
but please too much
don’t hurt da chirren masa”
We accompany disadvantaged children from all over and they love it at Donda Academy.
I see and understand how powerful you are, but even the mighty Pharaoh was no match for the power of GOD.
At times like this… and at all times…
I trust in my Jesus. The KING of Israel.
