American rapper, 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 interview with radio host Big Boy while promoting his new Christian-themed album ‘Jesus Is King’, added that he doesn’t believe 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 likewise asserted that African-Americans have no culture while reacting to an issue of deserting 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".
Kanye also went ahead to say that he would not tell any black Americans how to vote.
”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 also criticized the Democrats for encouraging abortion, backed his claim by quoting the scriptures from the bible “Thou shall not kill.” Kanye further stated that he is not afraid of being ‘canceled’ over his opinions.
‘I’m only afraid of my daddy, God. I did been 15 years. I’m telling you that God is showing you that you can have your own thoughts, bro. I have been canceled before there was cancel culture.’
