Kanye West Reminds Black Americans That It Was Democrats Who Fought For Slavery

By

It’s an odd thing that the majority of Black Americans are supporters of the Democratic party.

It’s also testament to the ability of the mainstream media to effectively brainwash people with a particular agenda. In this case, painting conservatives and Republicans as racists.

The simple, verifiable truth of the matter is that it was the Democratic Party that so vigorously defended slavery in this country.

And after slavery was abolished (by Republicans), the Democrats for decades made sure blacks couldn’t vote.

Again, it’s no secret that the Civil Rights Act of 1964 was far more heavily supported by Republicans than by Democrats, a great many of whom voted AGAINST measures to permit blacks to more easily vote.

But, liberals don’t like to bring that up cause it doesn’t fit the mainstream narrative.

Rapper Kanye West, however, is determined to remind folks.

Via Breitbart:

Rap megastar Kanye West released a new song on Saturday sending what could be considered one of the boldest political statement’s in rap history — questioning black Americans’ near-monolithic support of the Democratic Party.

The fiery track, “Ye vs the People,” sees the Chicago crooner in a back-in-forth lyrical debate about the merits of thinking freely and the political and economic state of black Americans, as well as addressing the fallout from West’s seeming embrace of President Donald Trump, with actor-rapper T.I.

“Bruh, I never ever stopped fightin’ for the people. Actually wearin’ the hat’ll show people that we equal,” West says of posting a picture online this week of him wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat — a hat which the rapper says “stayed in my closet like ’bout a year and a half.”

“Then one day I was like, ‘Fuck it, I’ma do me, I was in the sunken place and then I found the new me,” West says to a defensive T.I. “Not worried about some image that I gotta keep up. Lot of people agree with me, but they too scared to speak up.”

“See that’s the problem with this damn nation. All blacks gotta be Democrats, man, we ain’t made it off the plantation,” West argues.
