BROOKLYN, NEW YORK CITY: It has been reported that hundreds of supporters who claimed to be "real Jews" taking on the streets of Brooklyn. On Sunday, November 20, Black supremacy group and fans of NBA star Kyrie Irving went shouting during their march, "We are the real Jews," and "Time to wake up." Such groups have got bolstered in recent times amid both Irving, who previously claimed the Earth was flat and suggested unfounded conspiracy theories at the peak of the Covid-19 pandemic, and Ye, formally known as Kanye West, brought forth their antisemitic comments to the public through their social media platforms.

The event was recorded by many media outlets, where the group members of 'Israel United in Christ', are heard chanting in unison: "It's time to wake up. I've got good news for you, we are the real Jews." They avoid using the term "Jews" or "Jewish" though they are often seen with Jewish insignia on their clothing, which includes the six-sided Star of David. Their hostility toward Jews and other Whites is open and refer to them as "devilish imposters" and adherents of "Satan."

A statement was released soon by the American Jewish Committee, stating, “Black Hebrew Israelites chanting 'We are the real Jews' is a troubling antisemitic trope with dangerous potential. We cannot allow this supremacist ideology to spread and gain greater acceptance,” reported the Daily Mail.

Commentator John Sexton wrote on HotAir, “If you had a right wing group chanting this kind of anti-Semitic ideology about the Jews in Brooklyn, it would be on the front page of the NY Times tomorrow.” While on Unherd, commentator Ralph Leonard wrote, “Black Hebrew Israelites are obviously a racist cult. Their creed is as wacky and crackpot as Scientology; their historical revisionism is based on Afrocentric myth.”

Hundreds of members of the group encircled the Brooklyn Net home stadium, The Barclays Center, supporting disgraced Irving during his first game after suspension for promoting the antisemitic  film 'Hebrews to Negroes: Wake Up Black America'. Flyers were being handed out by the group, which read “The truth about slavery. The so-called Blacks and Hispanics are 'the 12 tribes of Israel!' You are the children of the slave trade!” as per The Jerusalem Post.

The incident has generated enormous reactions on social media, where one person wrote, "The Black Hebrew Israelites were one of the groups confronting the Covington students at the March for Life in January 2019. Thanks to Kanye, they're about to become a lot more popular.” Another said, “Radical factions of the black-supremacist group known as Black Hebrew Israelites have emerged in NYC, marching and chanting anti-Jewish hate. This movement is spreading and its leaders are growing increasingly militant.” Another one wrote, "Yeah I don’t think being supported by Hebrew Israelites are is the best thing. This is a terrible look." "That's them Black Hebrew Israelites. They've been around for a bit and they believe*unorthodox* things Here's some guys in StL in north county," said another.
