Basketball legend and activist Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is speaking out against anti-Semitism.
In a column for The Hollywood Reporter, Abdul-Jabbar discussed recent anti-Semitic incidents, which he described as a “very troubling omen for the future of the Black Lives Matter movement.”
The NBA Hall of Famer highlighted the recent backlash against rapper Ice Cube, who posted controversial images and symbols on Twitter.
"Ice Cube’s June 10 daylong series of tweets, which involved some creepy symbols and images, in general implied that Jews were responsible for the oppression of blacks," Abdul-Jabbar wrote.
