What’s With Ye, Anyway?

In recent weeks, Kanye West has gotten a lot of attention for a series of comments that are antisemitic and reflect antisemitic tropes. The outcry over his comments has also raised conversations about racism and mental health. We aim to give some discussion points to guide conversations about the broader context and intersection of these important topics with the Jewish teens in your life. We recognize that covering all of it is impossible—our goal is to help open important conversations.

This is a discussion guide for parents and educators and the teens in their lives about the recent antisemitism fueled by Kanye West.
