Kanye West’s interview with Tucker Carlson on Thursday night provided a window into the mind of one of the most unique personalities in pop culture.
West said he tries not to use explicit language around his children. Family was a recurring theme during his conversation with Carlson. Kanye spoke very highly of his father, whom he described as “brilliant,” and boldly stated that he is pro-life.
West is clearly a complicated figure, but one thing is for sure: The one-dimensional stereotypes of him as a “coon” looking for white approval are completely misplaced.
West mentioned Dr. Claud Anderson, author of "PowerNomics: The National Plan to Empower Black America," and promoted black economic independence and ownership on several occasions.
He openly supported Donald Trump, claimed wearing a “White Lives Matter” shirt was him simply stating the obvious, said the media has a godless agenda, and admitted people wanted him to hide his political beliefs.
Kanye West seems like a serious man who supports independent thought, not a mentally disturbed unwitting vessel for white supremacy. In short, he is the complete opposite of the people who claim to care about black lives.
Some of the very same people who publicly lambasted West for wearing the “White Lives Matter” shirt had no issue with the message being pushed out into “the culture” in the new “No Voting, No Vucking” ad from the BLK dating app. The video featured a cross-dressing rapper named Saucy Santana along with Miami hip-hop veteran Trina.
The video encouraged young black voters – particularly men – to participate in the electoral process if they want to have sex. The ad ends with the line, “If the coochie is the goal, go hit the polls” while the site weall.vote/blk appears on the screen.
The organization called When We All Vote was created by Michelle Obama and touts itself as a “nonpartisan initiative on a mission to change the culture around voting and to increase participation in each and every election by helping to close the race and age gap.” Two years ago, an Atlanta-based duo tried a similar strategy with an ad called, “Get Your Booty to the Poll” for the Georgia senate runoff election.
The left would freak out over a “No Wedding, No Womb” video that promoted marriage before children. When it comes to voting, however, they’re fine with strategic abstinence.
Every black voter in America should feel insulted by politicians, media companies, pollsters, and artists who refuse to appeal to our intellect, sensibilities, or values. They use sex to coerce black people into voting because that is what they think controls us.
The irony is that the same people who promote this type of ethnic advertising are the ones most likely to accuse black conservatives of “cooning,” promoting racial stereotypes, and selling out the black community. Michael Steele, former Republican National Committee chairman, was harshly criticized by liberals for joking about fried chicken and potato salad during a response to diversity outreach efforts within the GOP.
But if the person behind the microphone or camera has a “D” beside his party affiliation, he is free to produce nuclear-grade propaganda meant to demoralize and humiliate black people. The Klan would gladly sell their daughters to O.J. Simpson for the degrading messages liberals sell the black community. The last 30 years prove black death is profitable if the killing instrument is a Glock instead of a noose.
There was a period of time in which black public figures took the preservation of the black public image very seriously. They understood that civil rights were necessary for full citizenship, but dignity and self-respect are prerequisites for full humanity.
Black liberals today call efforts to encourage modesty in dress and speech “respectability politics” and assume the black people telling young men to pull their pants up are doing so to impress white people. This is because they project their deep desire for white approval and validation onto everyone else.
This is one reason they hate Kanye West. His staunch opposition to abortion – and willingness to frame it as an act of black genocide – is a direct threat to the regime they have built on black death and destruction.
The black community has a choice to make. The most popular genre ever created by black artists is powered in large part by artists who talk about killing black men and disrespecting black women. Any criticism of those messages is met with a Ph.D.-level defense from a member of the Afristocaracy. Kanye donning a MAGA hat or WLM shirt, by contrast, is treated like a level five emergency within black culture.
This isn’t to say Kanye is a perfect leader. His involvement in Lil Nas X’s song “Industry Baby” – and the video’s celebration of gay sex in prison – was a disappointment to people who heard him lay down the gauntlet against cultural rot on his album "Jesus Is King."Ultimately, looking to any entertainer for leadership is a bad strategy. Our value as human beings, regardless of our ethnicity, comes from God our Creator. But if “the culture” has to choose a slogan, “If you wanna have this baby, say 'forever you’re my lady'” is far superior to “If you wanna hit this booty, gotta do your civic duty.”
