The rapper known to don a “Make America Great Again” hat from time to time says many blacks in America have been “brainwashed” into supporting the Democratic Party, even though the party is at odds with their beliefs.
“We’re brainwashed out here, bro. Come on, man. This is a free man talking,” the 42-year-old singer said in an interview with radio host Big Boy on Friday.
“Democrats had us voting for Democrats with food stamps for years. What are you talking about guns in the 80s, taking the fathers out the home, Plan B, lowering our votes, making us abort children,” he said.
West said people in “blue” states, which vote Democratic, are controlled by the party. “You are quite easily controlled if they know everybody gonna’ be blue. If you go to a white bar, you gonna’ hear people talking independent, you gonna’ hear people talking Democrat, you gonna hear people talking Republican.”
