Former KKK Leader David Duke Takes Aim At Nicki Minaj
In an online broadcast that has been covered by the likes of Time and The Guardian for its takedown of currently scandalized politician Republican Rep. Steve Scalise, the former Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan, David Duke, makes direct mention of rapper Nicki Minaj and calls into question the morality of her music.
“Why do people blame blacks like Minaj?” he asked. “Because Minaj wouldn’t be a pimple on somebody’s rear end except for the fact that she is promoted by the Jewish record producers and the media, the mass media, the powerful media, that promotes absolute degenerates like her.”
Earlier in the show, Duke took aim at Gangster Rap as a whole, saying eventually, “Rap music is not something that Blacks were really responsible for, it was the Jewish record producers who promoted this degenerate and sick music.”
