Watch Nick Cannon's Interview w/ Professor Griff | Ebonynsweet

Update 7-14-20

Earlier Today, Nick Cannon's controversial interview with Professor Griff was removed by YouTube for violating their terms of service agreement. He also issued a forced apology via Instagram and Facebook. But we have no doubt that Cannon was backed into a corner and needed to do what's necessary to save his popular YouTube Channel and his gig on the FOX Channel Masked Singer. He's apology could also be part of a deal to save his MTV show Wild N' Out that employed hundreds of a predominately black cast.

Cannon, sparked a must needed conversation that will resonate within the African American community for many months to come. He accomplished his mission. For now, he must live to fight for another day.

Nick Cannon won the internet.               

Nick Cannon became the most talked about celebrity on Tuesday afternoon for the most recent episode of his YouTube podcast, #CannonsClass, in which he discuss systemic racism, white fragility, and West African's contributions to the new world.

Cannon, 39, interviewed former Public Enemy figure Richard “Professor Griff” Griffin, 59, is an best selling author that wrote several books on the topic such as "The Psychological Covert War on Hip Hop", and "Symbology: The Psychological Covert War on Hip Hop Book 2".

During the interview they touched on the true origins of Jewish people, the Rothschilds, and the brutal reality of colonization. Griffin agrees, claiming that black people cannot be anti-Semitic, since, purportedly, the Semitic people are Black and our ancient languages are rooted in Africa and completely unrelated to Caucasians.
"When we talk about the power of [melanin] people, "when we talk about who we really are as Gods, and the understanding that our [melanin] is so powering and it connects us in a way, that the reason why they fear black, the reason is why they fear us, is the lack that they have of it".
Cannon also adds, “The people that don’t have [melanin] are a little less,” they’re acting out of low self-esteem, they’re acting out of a deficiency.

Following the video, Cannon released a statement on social media and spoke with media-outlet Fast Company. He said, "I can’t wait to sit down with some people that can help educate me and help further this conversation. I want to be corrected.” Cannon, never said he was wrong. He's willing to prove his case with anyone that's willing to step into the hot seat.
Cannon also faced critics that believe his statement was a non-apology.
“To me apologies are empty. Are you forcing me to say the words ‘I’m sorry’? Are you making me bow down, ’cause then again, that would be perpetuating that same rhetoric that we’re trying to get away from,” Cannon says. “What we need is healing. What we need is discussion. Correct me. I don’t tell my children to say, ‘I’m sorry.’ I want them to understand where they need to be corrected. And then that’s how we grow.”
He continued, "You can say sorry in as many different languages as you want to, and it means nothing. “But until someone truly understands where they may have been wrong or where they may have offended someone, then that’s where growth occurs.”
Cannon's backlash was also meet with resounding support from the African American Community.

It was reported that ViacomCBS the parent company of MTV's Nick Cannon Presents: Wild N' Out ended their business ties with Cannon, after he rightfully refused to apologize for nearly speaking the truth.

Nick Cannon is incredibly talented. And he will bounce back stronger than ever. We look forward to supporting him through the next phrase of his career.
