The Anti-Defamation League Accuses JAY-Z Of Using Negative Stereotypes …

(New York Daily News) JAY-Z resorts to using an "odious and false" stereotype about the Jewish community in a song on his latest album, an anti-bigotry organization charged.

The Anti-Defamation League — a non-profit Jewish establishment — lampooned the hip hop mogul over a set of controversial lyrics that they believe perpetuates anti-Semitic generalizations in his new song "The Story of O.J."

In the song, which appears on his new "4:44" album, JAY-Z raps: "You wanna know what's more important than throwin' away money at a strip club? Credit / You ever wonder why Jewish people own all the property in America? This how they did it."

The ADL officially condemned JAY-Z's use of these lyrics on Thursday in a statement, contending that the rapper's generalized wording seems to play "into deep-seated anti-Semitic stereotypes about Jews and money.

"The idea that Jews 'own all the property' in this country and have used credit to financially get ahead are odious and false," a spokesperson for the ADL told the magazine. "Yet, such notions have lingered in society for decades, and we are concerned that this lyric could feed into preconceived notions about Jews and alleged Jewish 'control' of the banks and finance."

The spokesperson continued in the statement to say that the organization does not believe JAY-Z, whose real name is Shawn Carter, actually intended to promote Anti-Semitic views with the polarizing lyrics, but the league denounced that portion of the song nonetheless.


"We know that JAY-Z is someone who has used his celebrity in the past to speak out responsibly and forcefully against the evils of racism and anti-Semitism," the statement continued.

JAY-Z has not responded to the Anti-Defamation League's comments. A request for comment was not returned by his rep.

JAY-Z touches on a number of highly personal and social topics in his much-talked about new album, including in the song "Smile" where he reveals his mother, Gloria Carter, is a lesbian.

"Mama had four kids, but she's a lesbian / Had to pretend so long that she's a thespian," he raps.

His mother provides a spoken-word outro in the song, in which she says, "Love who you love, because life isn't guaranteed."

JAY-Z also made headlines for appearing to apologize to his wife, Beyoncé, for cheating on her in other parts of the album, as well as for addressing his fallout with longtime friend and collaborator Kanye West in the song "Kill Jay Z."

"4:44" went platinum less than a week after it premiered exclusively on Tidal.

    I have a dream that one date they will stereotype black people for owning all the property in the United States and my children's children's will be so used to that stereotype that they will be offended lmao.


    its crazy that they would be offended by the comment, but they dont like the notion that people think that they run the world.


    i think they believe that the thought process leads to people hating jews.

    The thing that can be confusing is a small percentage of Jewish people could be filing this but the majority of Jewish people may not be offended and fucks with Jay heavy thinking he gave them props. I imagine a 2 or 3 middle age Jewish men filing this shit but every Jewish male under the age of 40 in the tristate is happy jay shouted out their business acumen.

    bingo. that mentality is how Hitler was able to turn Germany against the jews, basically: "they run it all and it's shit right now, so it's their fault!"

    I can see how it can be a negative stereotype

    Ion get how the stereotype that Jewish people own a lot of stuff in America, is a bad thing.

    How bout the stereotype that a black man is prone to violence.

    How bout the stereotype that black women are loud and obnoxious.

    How bout the stereotype that black people are stupid.

    How bout the stereotype that black men are absentee fathers.

    How bout the stereotype that black people are government leaches.

    How bout the stereotype that black people are prone to lying and stealing.

    I mean if they wanna trade one of one, I'm all for it.

    when the shit can be flipped to making you seem like the worst group of people because of the fact that you own shit, its not a compliment.

    there are plenty of stereotypes that seem positive from the outside looking in

    but if you're black do you really like people thinking you're good at sports just because you're black?

    or if you're asian do you really like people thinking you're good at math/technology just because you're asian?

    there's nothing abhorrently disgusting or negative about those racial stereotypes, but I'm sure there's plenty of people who are sick of them
