Jewish comedian, Jackis Mason, has caused controversy by recently referring to President, Barack Obama as a “schwartza,”which is a negative Jewish racial slur for African-Americans. Mason had previously apologized to former, New York Mayor David Dinkins for calling him a fancy “swartza” with a mustache in the nineties.

Here are Mason’s statements regarding the controversy.

“Chris Rock has told a lot more jokes about whites than I have against blacks. What about the demeaning words blacks say about Jews?
“If it’s a racist society, the white people are the ones being persecuted because they have to defend themselves.”

“I’m an old Jew. I was raised in a Jewish family where ‘schwartza’ was used. It’s not a demeaning word and I’m not going to defend myself. ”
