    UNITED NATIONS - The U.N. children's agency said singer Harry Belafonte was speaking as a private citizen, not a UNICEF goodwill ambassador, when he called President Bush "the greatest terrorist in the world." The 78-year-old Belafonte, famous for his calypso-inspired music, made headlines during a trip to Venezuela when he spoke out against Bush and said millions of Americans support the socialist revolution of Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez. The U.S. Fund for UNICEF said in a statement that Belafonte — a UNICEF goodwill ambassador since 1987 — made the comments "as a private citizen and was not speaking as a...

    October 07, 2005, 8:02 a.m. The Miseducation of Harry Belafonte Day light come and I want to set the record straight. By Reverend Joseph N. Evans Only a short time before the Katrina devastation and subsequent racial hysteria hit landfall, during a "Keep the Vote Alive" march in Atlanta, renowned singer Harry Belafonte made some pretty strong comments about African Americans who identify themselves with a conservative political philosophy and agenda. According to media reports, he called them "tyrants," and went on to make an amazing comparison involving Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice. "Hitler had a lot of Jews high...

    2008 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton praised anti-American activist Harry Belafonte on Thursday after Belafonte charged that U.S. foreign policy had "wrecked the planet." "There's a lot of people out here who are really pissed off," Belafonte told the Congressional Black Caucus, with Mrs. Clinton and Rep. Charlie Rangel standing nearby. "Our foreign policy has made a wreck of this planet," Belafonte complained. "I'm always in Africa . . . And when I go to these places I see American policy written on the walls of oppression everywhere." The former calypso singer's anti-U.S. rant won immediate praise from Hillary, who stepped...

    Thursday, Aug. 11, 2005 9:09 p.m. EDT Belafonte's Retraction Causes Flap [This story was reported by and written by Marc Morano.] Entertainer/activist Harry Belafonte has retracted some of the controversial comments he made at a civil rights march in Atlanta regarding Jews working for Hitler, but his retraction may have created even more controversy for the singer. During an interview with Cybercast News Service at the Aug. 7 march, Belafonte asserted that Adolf Hitler's regime in Germany included Jews and that African Americans working in the Bush administration should be compared to Jews working for Hitler. "Hitler had a...

    Famed entertainer and political activist Harry Belafonte told The Jerusalem Post Wednesday that he was retracting his recent statement that Jews had served "high up" in the Third Reich, a comment which angered several Jewish organizations. He continued, however, to maintain that Jews had contributed to Hitler's cause and that the Bush administration resembled the period leading up to the Nazi regime. Earlier this week, in an interview with Cybercast News Service, Belafonte used a Nazi analogy to attack black officials in the Bush administration. "Hitler had a lot of Jews high up in the hierarchy of the Third Reich,"...

    Passage of the Voting Rights Act in August 1965 was a proud moment in U.S. history. For the first time, millions of African Americans living in the Deep South, who had been excluded from fully participating in the political process for 200 years, were finally enfranchised. The battle to secure those rights cost many lives of both blacks and whites. So why is it that some black leaders have taken the occasion of the 40th anniversary of this seminal event to engage in hate speech? On Saturday, thousands of activists gathered in Atlanta to commemorate the signing of the Voting...

    "Bush is a tyrant," declared Harry Belafonte at last week's Atlanta march commemorating the Voting Rights Act of 1965. When CNS reporter Marc Morano asked the calypso king about the blacks serving in the Bush administration, "Black tyrants!" came Belafonte's tart reply. A few years ago Belafonte was asked about his friend Fidel Castro. Here's a "Cuban leader" (the term used by the late Peter Jennings) who jailed more political prisoners as a percentage of population than Hitler or Stalin. Here's a "Cuban Premier" (as Barbara Walters prefers) who executed more political prisoners in his first year in power than...

Harry Belafonte warned, "We must stand vigilant, as there are those among us who would steal our liberty and steal our souls." Belafonte referred to blacks serving in the Bush administration as "black tyrants," and went even farther in an interview with Marc Morano of "Hitler had a lot of Jews high up in the hierarchy of the Third Reich," Belafonte told Morano, an anti-Semitic canard meant to...

    A leading Holocaust Studies institute wants entertainers Harry Belafonte, Dick Gregory, and Woody Allen to retract their recent statements comparing the Bush administration, Israelis, and black conservatives to Nazis. As Cybercast News Service reported, Belafonte over the weekend used a Hitler analogy when asked what impact prominent blacks such as former Secretary of State Colin 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...

    Atlanta ( - Celebrity activist Harry Belafonte referred to prominent African-American officials in the Bush administration as "black tyrants" at a weekend march, and he also compared the administration to Adolf Hitler's Nazi Germany. Belafonte, a featured speaker at Saturday's march in Atlanta commemorating the 40th anniversary of the signing of the Voting Rights Act, previously ignited a political controversy in 2002 when he likened then-Secretary of State Colin Powell to a "house slave." At Saturday's civil rights march, Belafonte said the Bush administration has been "rather dismal" for the lives of black Americans. The march, which featured prominent civil...

    Unicef has decried the sharp disparity between the rich and the poor in Kenya. Mr Harry Belafonte, the United Nations Children’s Fund goodwill ambassador, who is touring the country, said yesterday he was "deeply disturbed" by the squalor that he witnessed in Nairobi slums. He said another class of Kenyans led splendid lives in contrast to the low life in the slums. Belafonte said African countries in general and Kenya in particular must find ways of ending the misery and poverty suffered by their people many years after independence. He said: "It is puzzling that this is happening 40 years...
