Belafonte used a Hitler analogy when asked about what impact prominent blacks such as former Secretary of State Powell and current Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice had on the Bush administration's relations with minorities.
"Hitler had a lot of Jews high up in the hierarchy of the Third Reich. Color does not necessarily denote quality, content or value," Belafonte said in an exclusive interview with Cybercast News Service.
Who? Joseph Goebbels? Heinrich Himmler? Herman Goering? Albert Speer? Who were the many Jews "high up in the hierarchy of the Third Reich"? Until Harry Belafonte backs up his claims with names, we can only assume that he is every bit as racist as the worst Klansman, cracker or jihadi. Belafonte should be ignored, and anybody who honors him should be denounced.
