TV personality Nick Cannon unleashed a racist and anti-Semitic rant in late June on an episode of his podcast “Cannon’s Class,” which he claims is “an academic podcast” designed to host “difficult conversations.”
On the podcast episode in question, Cannon spoke with well-documented anti-Semite Richard Griffin and praised the hateful Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, who has been labeled by both the Anti-Defamation League and the Southern Poverty Law Center as anti-Semitic and anti-gay. Nevertheless, the “Masked Singer” host believes Farrakhan is a “positive,” “powerful,” and “uplifting” man who has been “demonized.”
Nick Cannon says white people are "a little less," "closer to animals," "the true savages," "acting out of a deficiency so the only way they can act is evil." When does he get canceled? pic.twitter.com/vK3TBDW9i8

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 to Minister Farrakhan, where they may not have the compassion.
When they were sent to the Mountains of Caucasus, they didn’t have the power of the sun. The sun started to deteriorate them. So, they’re acting out of fear, they’re acting out of low self-esteem, they’re acting out of deficiency, so therefore the only way they can act is evil.
They have to rob, steal, rape, kill, and fight in order to survive. So these people who didn’t have what we have — and when I say, ‘we,’ I speak of the melanated [sic] people — they had to be savages, they had to be barbaric, because they’re in these Nordic mountains, they’re in these rough torrential environments, so they’re acting as animals, so they’re the ones closer to animals. They’re the one that are actually the true savages.
