Kanye West has accused the Democratic Party of brainwashing blacks and promoting policies that are harmful to the race.
The 42-year-old rapper who disclosed this in an nterview with radio host Big Boy while promoting his new Christian-themed album ‘Jesus Is King’, added that he doesn’t think it’s smart for black people to give bloc votes to Democrats.
‘You are quite easily controlled if they know everybody gonna be blue [Democrat]. If you go to a white [person] bar, you gonna hear people talking Independent, you gonna hear people talking Democrat, you gonna hear people talking Republican’ he said.
Kanye also affirmed that African-Americans have no culture while responding to a question of abandoning his culture to support President Donald Trump. According to him, the adopted mishmash of consumerism has kept black people trapped as opposed to entrepreneurship and self-ownership which is the traditional Republican ideology.
On if he was tacitly endorsing racism with his support for Trump, Kanye flipped the question around, saying:
‘The most racist thing a person can tell me is that I’m supposed to choose something based on my race’.
West also clarified in the interview that he would not tell any black American how to vote, bizarrely stating: ”I’m not telling nobody to not vote Democrat, I love Obama, I love lemonade, I love Wingstop, I love polos, I love Jordans’.
The rapper who lashed out at the Democrats for encouraging abortion, backed his claim by quoting the scriptures “Thou shall not kill.” Kanye further stated that he is not afraid of being ‘cancelled’ over his controversial opinions.
The born-again Christian remarked: ‘I’m only afraid of my daddy, God. I done been 15 years. I’m telling you that God is showing you that you can have your own thoughts, bro. I been canceled before there was cancel culture.’
Royal Split: Prince Harry expresses great sadness
Britain’s Prince Harry expressed “great sadness” on Sunday at the way he and his wife Meghan had to give up their royal titles as part of separation settlement with the Queen.
“It brings me great sadness that it has come to this,” Harry said in his first remarks on Saturday’s historic agreement, made during a public address and posted on the couple’s Instagram account.
“Our hope was to continue serving the Queen, the commonwealth, and my military associations, but without public funding. Unfortunately, that wasn’t possible,” he told supporters of his Africa-based charity for youngsters with HIV at an event in London.
The settlement stripped Harry and Meghan of public funding and required them to repay £2.4 million ($3.1 million) of taxpayer’s money spent on renovating their Frogmore Cottage home near Windsor Castle.
Harry was also forced to give up the military titles and patronages he was awarded after serving two tours in Afghanistan with the British Army.
But Harry said he felt “utmost respect” for Queen Elizabeth II.
“It has been our privilege to serve you, and we will continue to lead a life of service.”
“I will always have the utmost respect for my grandmother, my commander in chief, and I am incredibly grateful to her and the rest of my family, for the support they have shown Meghan and me over the last few months.”
He also hinted at some trepidation at starting a new life away from his royal home. He and Meghan will spend some time in Canada before deciding whether to move to the United States or another country.
“We are taking a leap of faith — thank you for giving me the courage to take this next step,” he said.
