In a speech livestreamed on The Collective 9 YouTube channel on November 10, 2022, Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan spoke about the accusations of antisemitism that NBA star Kyrie Irving and rapper Kanye West have been facing recently. Farrakhan said that the Anti-Defamation League should look into the "horror" that their parents have done to blacks in America and throughout the world, and he said that Jews consider 1,000 black lives to be worth less than the fingernail of one Jew. He said that the Jews have not apologized to African Americans for the transatlantic slave trade or for the killing, raping, castration, and enslavement of blacks. For more about the Kyrie Irving controversy, see MEMRI TV Clip No. 9921.

Louis Farrakhan: "Kyrie found something. 'I want you to say that you're sorry for saying something that is antisemitic.' And he kept telling you: 'I can't be anti-myself.' You didn't want to hear that.


"I'm saying to the ADL [Anti-Defamation League]: Sir, we know you. And we know that we know you. And you know that we know you. Don't talk to Kyrie by himself: 'he can go and look at the horror of the Holocaust.' Why don't you come and look at the horror of what your parents have done to Black people in America and throughout the world. Why don't you come and study and repent of your evil to us.


"If you want our brothers to come and sit with your rabbis and visit the Holocaust museum, why not let one of our scholars come and sit with them? Because we know the Torah, by God's grace. We know the Talmud. And we know you and your history. Leave our people alone.


"We have never done to you and your people what you and your people have done to us. We don't need to go see the Holocaust. We feel your pain. Because we are really human being. You don't feel ours, because to you, a thousand Blacks ain't worth the fingernail of a Jewish man. I've read these things.


"Tell me something. How many of you would sit down and apologize to us for the transatlantic slave trade? You come now. Bring your wife and your children and tell us you're sorry for killing us, raping us, castrating us, enslaving us, and making us chattel. Will you come and apologize?

"Our people can be like you. It ain't enough, see? If we tell you when you apologize: 'it's not enough,' 'oh, you're trying to pimp us and hustle.' No. reparation ain't pimping. Reparation is what we deserve for the pain and anguish that you have caused us to suffer.

"No, no. no... But you won't do that. You won't do justice by us. That's why judgement is on you now. That's why you can't live a day without another calamity. And it's not going to stop. It's going to get harder and harder, because the God of Justice has claimed us, Kyrie, and Ye, and [Kevin] Durant, and [Charles] Barkley, and Shaq[uille O'Neal], we belong to God. Not you."
