(National Sentinel) Angry: In an age when black unemployment is near historic lows and the president gets credit for that, more blacks are becoming supporters of POTUS. One of them is rapper Kanye West.
Over the past year, he’s become one of the president’s biggest supporters in the black community, though that support has not come without a cost.
“The blacks weren’t always Democrats. You know it’s like the plan they did, to take the fathers out the home and put them on welfare. Does anybody know about that? That’s a Democratic plan,” West said during his opening monologue on Saturday Night Live last weekend while wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat. He also called out the entertainment industry and ‘mainstream’ media, correctly noting that the vast majority of people in those industries are Left-wing Democrat supporters, Breitbart News reported.
“They bullied me backstage. They said, ‘don’t go out there with that hat on.’ They bullied me backstage. They bullied me! And then they say I’m in a sunken place,” he said during his monologue.
He’s since been derided and degraded by those in his own community. In particular, he was pilloried by fellow rapper Snoop Dogg, who called him an “Uncle Tom” (because that’s the fall-back insult for blacks by other blacks who refuse to stay on the Democrat Plantation).
This is a paragraph of content.
But it gets worse. The Corporate Left is also attacking West, financially, for his pro-Trump demeanor. The Daily Wire reports that now the NBA may be looking to ban West’s trademark sneakers from professional basketball courts over what they claim is a “glaring design flaw.”
ABC News reported the league will “likely ban” West’s “highly anticipated Adidas basketball sneaker” this season:
Adidas athletes were expected to debut the new shoe on the court during the 2018-2019 season, but NBA officials are unlikely to approve the kicks without a redesign, according to the report.
Citing sports industry sources, ESPN said the NBA would find the shoe’s gleaming reflective heels far too distracting for audiences in the arena and at home.
Timing is everything. The NBA didn’t announce that it was considering banning West’s sneakers until Monday – two days after his SNL appearance. And you know, the league has had the designs for some time.
For the record, “sunken place” refers to a state of hypnosis in the movie, “Get Out,” where blacks’ consciousness is forced into a state of subservience by white liberals. So, it’s a smear.
As a billionaire businessman who often helped the black community during his days as a real estate mogul, Donald Trump was a pretty good guy who was generous and kind. In fact, black “leaders” like Jesse Jackson said so, like when he thanked him for a lifetime of service to the community.
“I want to express thanks to you, Donald Trump, for being with us tonight,” Rainbow Coalition leader Jesse Jackson said at an event in January 1998 that was captured live at the time by C-SPAN2.
“We need your building skills, your gusto, your rent package for people on Wall Street who represent diversity, and, we thank you for coming tonight,” he said, sharing a laugh with Trump. “Let’s give Donald Trump a big hand.”
Jackson also said Trump “created a comfort zone for many people” when the civil rights leader ran for the presidency in 1984 and 1988. He also credited Trump for attending minority business meetings in New York, in order to lend assistance to various causes.
However, in an interview in June with Fox News’ Laura Ingraham, Jackson sang a different tune now that “friend” and businessman Donald Trump is Republican President Trump. During the interview, Jackson credited Barack Obama for Trump’s growing economy, and supported black athletes’ claims that they feel “insulted by the violations of our people by this president.”
