"I'm astonished by the psychological gymnastics some people perform to make that self-denigrating word acceptable," he told us. "No other race does it. Why is it accepted? In an industry that makes Michael Jackson take out a word that was offensive to Jewish people, why does it sanitize a word that continues to be used by the Ku Klux Klan when it attacks our people?"
This statement doesn't make any sense; Michael Jackson is not Jewish. So, uhhh, maybe I'm missin' something?
In Micheal Jackson's song "They Dont Care About Us" he had a lyric that went..
'Jew me, sue me.. you could never do me' (something like that)
Some people found that offensive and it was censored out of the song and MJ apologised for it, even though, apparently, it was not meant in malice.
