Famous rapper Kanye West has begun feeling the full force of the establishment hate machine. His crime? He came out in support of Donald Trump, and worse, he has pointed out (along with another hip-hop mogul, Chance the Rapper) that the Democrats do not OWN the black vote or support.
I can honestly state that before this week, I knew two things about Kanye:
- He is in some way involved in rap music
- He is married to a Kardashian (not sure which one, or how many of them there are)
But now I can add a third fact to this list… He is a brave man.
We have seen what happens to celebrities who go against the leftist narrative; they are berated, abused, hounded until they humiliate themselves with a public apology and grovel about their inadequacies. But not so for Kanye West. He has declared not only his support for The Donald but also his love! Stating that they are both brothers who share Dragon energy.
Almost immediately, the media and other celebs have started questioning his sanity, deriding him, and all because he dares to express a political opinion that does not agree with theirs.
Chance the Rapper said that: “black people don't have to be Democrats.” Now sure, this may seem like an obvious statement, but the abuse received by conservative or Republican blacks is on a level that would make most people blush. The left would have all black people believe that they “owe” their vote to the left, but they do not. It is racism in its purest form to suggest that because of a person's skin color, they should have a certain set of opinions and beliefs.
In support of brave, black voices, I am going to break a lifelong habit of not listening to rap music, and give Kanye a listen. I can't guarantee I'll like it, but then I don't have to… I can still respect the man's views.
