Kanye West isn’t “Traditionally American” Enough To Sit At Trump’s Table

Kanye West ruffled quite a lot of feathers when he announced his support of President-elect Trump while on stage. Then he made a stop to Trump Tower  to have a personal meeting with him and posed for pictures in the lobby.

Kanye had finally gotten the approval of those white billionaires he’s wanted for years at the expense of the respect of many of his fans and supporters. At least, that’s what it looked like.

Kanye West Meets With Donald Trump

Kanye West shocked fans last month when he declared his loyalty to President-elect Donald Trump on stage during his Saint Pablo Tour. He would later be hospitalized citing exhaustion, which many viewed as a sign that he was in the middle of a concerning downward spiral into depression and paranoia.

After being released from the hospital just a few days ago, West is seemingly doubling down on his Donald Trump endorsement.

Kanye West Hospitalized In Los Angeles After Cancelling Tour Dates

Kanye West’s actions as of late have been concerning, to say the least. First, he interrupted his own show to say that he would’ve voted for Donald Trump – if he voted at all. Then he cancelled the rest of his Saint Pablo tour dates after an odd performance where he only performed a couple of songs and went off on a rant about Jay Z, Beyoncé and more.

In the next chapter of what’s looking more like a cautionary talent, reports claim that the hip-hop artist/fashion designer was transported to a local hospital in Los Angeles after someone called the police while he was at his trainer’s home because an unidentified man was “acting erratically.” 

Kanye West: ‘I would’ve voted for Trump’

Remember when Kanye West said that he was running for president in 2020? Everyone had a laugh and and even made a hashtag out of it. Meanwhile, some of us paused and realized there was no reason to presume he would be running as as a Democrat. Those concerns have been justified.

At a recent concert, the rapper/fashion designer took one of his trademark self-imposed interruptions to let the crowd know what side of the line he fell on in the recent election. The fact that he didn’t actually vote is somehow the relief. 

We Must Offer Black Women The Same Protections We Offer White Women

By now, the world has heard at length about the gaffes of two very famous white women this week. Taylor Swift was exposed on Snapchat by Kim Kardashian and Kanye West for lying about approving Kanye’s lyrics in his song “Famous.” Melania Trump, the wife of the Republican nominee for president, apparently lifted part of her Republican National Convention Speech from Michelle Obama’s 2008 Democratic National Convention speech. These two instances are part of a larger history of white women and public victimhood in the United States.
