A group of Jewish protestors was spotted at Monday’s Nets game sitting courtside with T-shirts that read “Fight Antisemitism.” They were responding to Kyrie Irving‘s recent support of the film, Hebrews to Negroes: Wake Up Black America, which purportedly promotes antisemitism and general misinformation.
