In a video from 2019, far-right author Jim Goad rapping while wearing blackface. The video, which does not appear on Goadâs website, was preserved on Bitchute in August 2019 by a user who routinely uploads content venerating white supremacist mass murderers.
The video begins with Goad with his back to the camera, before he turns around to reveal that heâs wearing dark makeup, sunglasses, and a camouflage baseball cap. Goad then sings along to Vanilla Iceâs 1990 single âIce Ice Baby,â while substituting the phrase âtoo coldâ for his own name.
As the song ends Goad says, âCultural appropriation, yo. 2019. Jim Goad. Fuck yâall yâall. âŠ Fuck ya mother, ya father, ya motherâs father and your motherâs sister. Fuck you all. The king. Iâm Audi 500 â 5,000. 5.0. Whateva.â
For Goad, this was just one of many racist incidents throughout a bigoted career.
Goad has made multiple appearances on white supremacist shows including Henrik Palmgren and Lana Lokteffâs Red Ice TV, Jean-FranĂ§ois GariĂ©pyâs The Public Space, Richard Spencerâs The McSpencer Group, and a Neo-Nazi podcast called The Gas Station.
From 2010 to 2020 Goad wrote a regular column for the far-right Takiâs Magazine. Last October he quit Takiâs and moved to white nationalist publishing house Counter-Currents. Goadâs byline has also appeared on the white nationalist websites American Renaissance and VDARE.
This hasnât turned Goad into a total pariah, however.
Goad currently hosts the show HARDBALLS on Censored.TV, a (reportedly struggling) right-wing media company launched by Proud Boys founder Gavin McInnes. In addition to Goad, Censored.TV employs a number of right-wing personalities, including Milo Yiannopoulos, Jacob Wohl, and Laura Loomer.
Last month saw the debut of a Censored.TV show co-hosted by Gavin Wax â the president of the New York Young Republicans Club who has ties to numerous right-wing extremists.
Goadâs roughly 17,000 followers also include Fox News White House correspondent Kevin Corke, the libertarian student group Young Americans for Liberty, and Felipe Martins â the special foreign policy advisor to Jair Bolsonaro who was accused in March of flashing a white supremacist hand gesture.
