Quote# 123490

Ali Bouali, a Dutch rapper of Moroccan descent has been accused of antisemitism, after a lyric in his new song played on the canard of Jews being miserly.

His new song “That is money” includes the lyric that he “sits on money like a Jew” and that he “deports” greedy women.

Dutch Jewish Newspaper Jonet featured a piece on the song, in which the writer lamented the fact that Bouali used his position to spread an antisemitic lie, as opposed to speak out against the antisemitism amongst Dutch Muslims.

However, Bouali rejected the criticism, claiming that he is just saying Jews are “good businesspeople”. Bouali added that “they want to take every word that a Moroccan ever says and turn it into something anti-Semitic”. Whilst being good with money is obviously not a bad thing, claiming that Jews are particularly good with money in itself plays upon antisemitic ideas that Jews have an unusual preoccupation with pursuing money. However, saying that Jews “sit on money” is not merely saying Jews are good businesspeople, but instead evokes images of miserly Jews holding onto their money, and is inherently antisemitic.

His music video has now been viewed over a million times on YouTube.

Anti-Semitism in the rap game is a very deep and dark rabit hole. It's also immensely hypocritical; considering the rampant hedonism modern rappers display as part of their image, they're the last people who should accuse someone of "sitting on money".

However, Bouali rejected the criticism, claiming that he is just saying Jews are “good businesspeople”.

A positive stereotype is still a stereotype and it's about as dehumanizing as a negative one. Also, see the rest of the paragraph.
Bouali added that “they want to take every word that a Moroccan ever says and turn it into something anti-Semitic”.

You literally referenced Jews in your verse about money and then made a line about deportation. That's pretty damn anti-Semitic, we don't even need to twist your words. This isn't some conspiracy to paint Moroccans as anti-Semitic, you were saying anti-Semitic shit and got called out on it, that's all.

If there's an impression going about that Moroccans are anti-Semitic, you are doing nothing to help. Next time, keep the dumb racist jokes confined to /pol/.

In all honesty even other 4chan boards despise /pol/ regulars, hence the term "containment board". Tells you a thing or two.

Which just makes it even more disturbing that /pol/ now borders on a mainstream political discussion board. How the fuck could a society taught valuable lessons by Hitler, Mussolini and Pinochet, to name but a few, let this happen?

/b/ is for containing the retards. /pol/ is for containing the frothing racists.
