Kanye West is on his Creflo Yeezy, hooking up Sunday Service concert all over the nation, and not necessarily on Sundays. On his latest stop in Salt Lake City, UT, the Chicago rapper asserted he was still down with Donald Trump, while using suspect history, and Right Wing talking points, to justify his choice.
While speaking to the crowd, Yeezy tripled down on his I’m not going against Trump just because I’m Black rhetoric, basically.
“Abraham Lincoln was the Wig Party, that’s the Republican Party that freed the slaves,” said West. “People want to call me a coon because I chose my right. We have a right to our own opinions right?
He added, “…I ain’t never make a decision based only on my color. That’s a form of slavery, mental slavery. I ain’t drink from the white person fountain. … I ain’t playing with them. All these mind controllers, the media, all of these mind controllers. I find that wherever Christ is where I’ve got my mind at. We find that the love of Christ is where I’ve got my mind back.”
Part of the issue is West only told part of the history. Yes, those Republicans of Abraham Lincoln’s era indeed freed the slaves. However, said Republicans shifted over to the Democratic party, of today. The current Republican party is being led by Donald Trump, a blatant racist, misogynist and sexist who gives no f*cks about Black people or even America, if it doesn’t add to his wallet.
You have to wonder why so many scoundrels and racists seem to gravitate toward the GOP. Also, Kanye West didn’t even vote.
That said Kanye West needs more friends, and to ready some more. This isn’t just us pointing out the jig, peep the reactions below.
Kanye West held his Sunday Service in Salt Lake City & declared his love for Trump. Undoubtedly the music being created by Kanye’s aggregation is exceptional; but we can no longer ignore his misrepresentation of Blacks in America/slavery! @HowardSchultz https://t.co/VDrCx3a5Vl— Jawn Murray (@JawnMurray) October 6, 2019
Where are Kanye’s friends?— brittany packnett cunningham has 3 names. (@MsPackyetti) October 6, 2019
I’m 100% serious. Prayer, intervention and honesty are all needed. As well as some introductions to some Black history and political science professors.
I don’t blame y’all. But I am begging you. 🙏🏾
3. This is why Yeezy’s false history echo chamber can be dangerous. Just saying.
Check out what Kanye West had to say about the history of the Republican Party and African Americans. @kanyewest should host a inaugural ball for @realDonaldTrump re-election because the @GOP is definitely keeping the White House in 2020! #Woke #Kanye #GOP #Trump2020 pic.twitter.com/TI1ISDvCIf— Diante Johnson (@BCFPresident) October 6, 2019

You black, so you can’t like Trump.

The most depressing thing the Democrats will see all day. Kanye West is 100% right. He has a lot of fans. Many are now also fans of Donald Trump. https://t.co/hwgeoD4uUN— Roger Kimball (@rogerkimball) October 6, 2019
At this point, you can’t even act surprised. Kanye is who he is. And if you rock with him, you can’t pretend he’s something else. https://t.co/DMgtSudPUX— Marc Lamont Hill (@marclamonthill) October 6, 2019
