Kanye West is in the news again, and this time he’s on Jimmy Kimmel’s hot seat.
West famously said that George W. Bush didn’t like Black people during a televised fundraiser for Hurricane Katrina. His words defined an attitude toward the sitting president that lasted for years within the black community. Kimmel asked him about Trump, and his answer was deafening.
West’s silence speaks volumes, especially when he loves to talk.
I am not blind either. Kimmel is supposed to be a comedian but he brings up Trump questions to put his guest in the spotlight so if they answer correctly, they are ok and if they answer wrong, they are demonized. West doesn’t care about that so why was it so hard to say that Trump likes Black people.
A few months ago before his album release, Kanye West threw a bone to the conservative movement putting on a Make America Great Again (MAGA) hat and taking a photo. His black fan base dismissed him for the most part while conservatives used him as a prostitute to say they were winning black voters over for Trump.
He left the political scene after he told a TMZ host black people had a choice whether or not they wanted to remain in slavery. Conservatives knowing this would damage their support quickly interpreted his statements as a current analysis, and he even circled with that excuse, but for the most part, he lost a lot of support.
West’s ability to play both sides is unbelievable. He chose two influential millennial so-called leaders, followed them on Twitter and the only people that lost their minds were conservatives. Liberals kept on going like it was nothing. From the outside looking in and many people can’t do that, it made conservatives look desperate. Some even lied about a huge wave of black voters switching sides in the upcoming elections, and there has been no proof of that, only retweets.
Should it have been easy for West to craft a response? He was quick on the trigger when he called out George W. Bush, right? How many of you will give him a pass because you liked and supported him wearing the MAGA hat? How many of you realize that he’s never come out in support of Pres. Trump and his policies nor have he spoke to them.
