Mike: Have you seen this story about this goofy, made-up religion that Jay Z is practicing or is rumored to practice, Five Percenters or something to that effect? Have you seen it? Someone photographed Jay-Z, the rapper, at a Knicks game. The headline from the New York Post is “Jay-Z’s bling from ‘whites are devils’ group.” This was from April 6 of this year. Remember, we’re talking about people that are morally superior to the rest of us here and have suffered righteous indignation at the hands of evil, despicable white people, and therefore now stand in defiance of this immorality and are going to cleanse the barren countryside of all indignations and of all iniquity and sin. Then I find this:
Black people are the fathers and mothers of civilization, white men are the devil, the Christian god is nothing more than a ghost and only a small percentage of people understand the world.
These are just some of the beliefs behind the bling — the gaudy Five Percent Nation medallions worn by Jay Z and Carmelo Anthony. [Mike: What was that commandment about not having false gods before me?]
Last week, all eyes at the Barclays Center weren’t on Jay Z’s better half, Beyoncé — but on the coaster-size golden pendant swinging from the rapper’s neck as the couple sat courtside. Asked once if the group’s symbol — an eight-pointed star with the number 7 in the middle — held any meaning for him, the rapper shrugged, “A little bit.”
So what exactly do Five Percenters believe?
“The rationale is that the black man is God and created the universe, and is physically stronger and intellectually stronger and more righteous naturally,” says Michael Muhammad Knight, an author of two books on the radical group.
“Whiteness is weak and wicked and inferior – basically just an errant child who needs to be corrected.”
The group was founded in 1964 in Harlem by Clarence Smith, who later changed his name to Allah, a former student of Malcom X who disagreed with the Nation of Islam over the nature of God.
Smith rejected the notion of a supernatural deity and instead believed that all black men had God in them and that black women were “earths” who too on a complementary yet subordinate role to their gods.
Mike: You heard the thing about the white guy being evil and wicked and what have you. I’d like to know, if we’re practicing anti-racism here and we have famous people that are wearing symbols of this blatant racist group — after all, can’t blacks be racist against whites? Or does racism only go in one direction? [laughing] Mike, you know the answer to that. You’re an American, aren’t you? You know the answer to that. It’s a one-way street, baby. Come on, get I the ‘90s. I digress.
I would like to know why no one has publically admonished Mr. Z — I don’t know what the Z stands for — for wearing the symbol of what basically amounts to a black version of, dare I say, some of those white supremacy groups? Isn’t this the same despicable moral outrage that’s being expressed against an entire race of innocent people? I’ve done nothing to this guy. I don’t even know this character. Why does my whiteness cover me with the stain of wickedness? [mocking] “Mike, are you being serious here?” Of course I’m being serious. I am also point out and trying to make the point that if you’re going to claim righteous, moral indignation over these outrages committed in private by a Donald Sterling type, where is your sense of moral outrage when you are cavorting about with the symbols of a group that believes that a white person is less of a human being than a black person, and that a white person, and I was quoting earlier, his whiteness makes him filled with wickedness? There’s more:
The idea is empowering, Knight says.
“Anytime someone is saying you have to accept your conditions of oppression and slavery and pray to an unseen god – that kind of god is just being used to keep people down and to keep people from looking to themselves as a solution to their problems,” he notes. “If there is a problem, no one will fix it for you, except yourself.”
Five Percenters don’t consider themselves Muslim, but their name comes from the Nation of Islam’s belief that 5 percent of humanity are “poor righteous teachers” who exist to enlighten the masses about the truth of existence.
Members will sometimes refer to themselves as “scientists” to drive home the search for truth. And they face a tall task, because under their belief system, 10 percent of the world’s population controls the other 85 percent by spreading the belief in a “mystery God.”
To show followers the way, members must learn the Supreme Mathematics and Supreme Alphabet – powerful tools to decipher the meaning of the universe. In both, each letter and number represents a concept: for example, 1 is knowledge, 2 is wisdom, while A is Allah and B is be, or born. The number 7 on Jay Z’s pendant stands for God.
Caucasians, meanwhile, don’t enjoy an exalted status in the narrative of the Five Percenters.
“The first lesson I learned from the Five Percent was simple: F-k white people. Seriously. White people are devils,” Knight, 36, who is white and converted to Islam as a teenager, once wrote.
He insisted the movement has been welcoming and that he views the controversial sentiment as a statement about power rather than biology.
“Jay Z is not an active member – no one has vouched for him,” Saladin Allah, a representative of the group’s upstate region, told The Post.
Mike: If I were wearing a Klan pendant for the fun of it, what would happen to me? I can guarantee you this, I wouldn’t be here this morning. I might be here, but you wouldn’t be hearing me. So wearing the symbols of a religious cult that – again, let’s talk moral indignation here.
Let’s talk racism here because racism, in all of its instances, in all of its occurrences, must be stamped out. That’s what we heard yesterday from Kevin Johnson and others. To reiterate, what does the symbol around Jay-Z’s neck and that religion say? “The rationale is that the black man is God and created the universe, and is physically stronger and intellectually stronger and more righteous naturally…Whiteness is weak and wicked and inferior – basically
just an errant child who needs to be corrected.” Let’s replace white with black and me with Jay-Z. Tell me what happens to my career trajectory this afternoon were I to adopt this perversion here of a religion, which we are commanded by God to not adopt and acknowledge, because you will have no god before me, we were commanded.

Methinks that the outrage that has been displayed by so many and the sense of pious joy after the public execution of Donald Sterling is but public display. Never mind that, never mind that. He was at one time — the men that were white that were playing for the Nets, did they ever feel inferior? Did Mr. Z do anything to cause them — do we have any tape recordings from inside the Z mansion of his innermost thoughts on the whiteness of people and how weak and inferior it is? Did Adam Silver say that Jay-Z can’t go to any more Nets games? No. Did he say he can’t go to any more games with that racist symbol hanging from his neck? No. Just to make a comparison, can you imagine if some guy showed up at an NBA game in a white robe with a white hood with that sick perversion of the cross on the left breast? What would be their welcome to the Staples Arena? You know what their welcome would be. It wouldn’t be a welcome at all. You’d probably have the entire National Guard nearby called out to see to it that the danger was averted.
