Topic Wiki

Thread summary:

By a random twist of pop corn fate, a truly disgusting hate crime was somehow connected with a Mordechai Ben David concert.

As it happens, Mordechai Ben David, of Yidden, Daddy Dear, Lichtigher Shabbos & other "controversies", turns out to be a racist.

Whether or not that makes him an idiot is up for discussion.

In other news, Mordechai Ben David is still the king.

South Africa is a beautiful place to visit, though its old flag is a symbol of its racist past. Oh, and the current Prime Minister can't count. That's not related to this thread, but it is something you should definitely know.

Midweek parev cholent was served. For a wider, more tasteless menu, please visit the "Pick your Poison" thread.

Should be easy to find but I have had no luck so far.
He is not covered nearly as extensively as secular performers. Between concerts and recording you don't really hear from him. The public apology never comes other than in response to or anticipation of a public outcry in the media which has not happened to the extent that he would feel a need to do more than just ignore it. The story is already over in his eyes and to make a statement now would only stir the pot. We will never know whether or not he regrets it.

If that is the case then he fails my goalpost standard.

He probably does but more because he is probably not as sensitive to the issue as he should be that due to being racist.

There is a difference between a) a politician b) giving a speech vs a singer at a concert pumped up from a song about peace saying a derogatory term.
You are definitely onto something here.

I would expand on that to offer the following perspective here: A performer becomes successful, not only because of his singing talent, but because of his ability to connect to the crowd. I think that MBD is not a racist in heart. He might despise BHO, like many do, for one reason or another. Using the term Kushi in front of an Israeli crowd of concert goers was his way to attempt to connect with that crowd.

He should apologize and everyone should move on to discuss the horrific, racist, sub human, cruel, thing that occurred in Chicago (would I be considered racist if I mentioned it is BHO'S and Rahm Emanuel's home town?) and the sickening video of it.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

+1 this place is like the UN. You have overtly race /hate based cases of ugly violence and torture, human rights violation, mistreating disabled people etc. All well documented. But instead we have a unanimous resolution excoriating the fact that, in Israel, someone's feelings may have been hurt

You can never speak about an issue that is connected to your community if there is a larger, more serious issue in another community happening.

Why is the take back Lakewood thread in existence when people are dying in Chicago!? The nerve of people to worry about duplexes when people are being shot.

No one is accusing MBD of kidnapping and torturing black people.

What do you want to discuss? AFAIK everyone agrees on this.

I think I understand now. You mean like a Rev Wright sermon. He was just connecting with the congregation.

What happen to everyone that wanted to discuss the despicable act that happened in Chicago? Don't tell me that was just a smokescreen.  :-\
