Author, pundit, & professor Marc Lamont Hill returns to Bad Faith to reflect on (Kan)Ye West, Kyrie Irving, and why Black Hebrew Israelites hold such appeal for these big name Black American celebs. Was Van Jones right to apologize to Jewish people on behalf of Black Americans? Are Black folks being held collectively responsible in a way that differs from what is demanded of other group members when one of their own transgresses? What is it about the Hebrew Israelite ideology that's considered de facto anti-Semitic? And does Dave Chappelle's thesis, that anti-Blackness isn't treated with the same gravity as some other types of bigotry, hold up? If it does, what do we do about it?
