On the final night of the Democratic National Convention, a performance from the rapper Common who has long-standing ties to the Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan was featured.

Farrakhan, who has frequently described Jewish people as “satanic,” and also blamed them for both the Holocaust and the Sept. 11, 2011, terrorist attacks.

Farrakhan also once praised Adolf Hitler as a “very great man.”

The Islamic leader also denounced interracial marriage, claiming it “mongrelized” the black race.

"Peace & Blessings. Minister Farrakhan is speaking LIVE now to talk about these troubled times. Go to"

He was also featured on a music compilation project that Farrakhan released in February 2018.

In the same year, Common approvingly posted a clip of Farrakhan on his Instagram page with the caption:

“Wise words being spoken!”

In 2006, Common was pictured with Farrakhan at an event.

But the rapper's ties to Farrakhan go back even further.

Common was also one of several rappers to appear at a 1997 anti-violence concert organized by Farrakhan, as per The Washington Post.

In 1995, the rapper also praised the Nation of Islam’s Chicago arm during an interview on BET’s “Rap City.”

“The Nation of Chicago. Real strong in the crib, man. They just opened up Salam restaurant. I went to Saviors’ Day back in April. It was real phat [sic], man,” he said.
