Chance The Rapper Faces Backlash for Supporting Kanye, Denouncing Biden

Chance The Rapper sent out a flurry of tweets on Tuesday that endorsed mogul Kanye West’s presidential short-lived candidacy and took shots at democratic nominee Joe Biden.  

The controversy started when Chance, who is signed to West’s G.O.O.D. Music shingle, retweeted Kanye’s post, his latest single DONDA, a song about his late mother.  

Chance added a loaded remark to the post, “And yall out here tryna convince me to vote for Biden. Smfh.” 

Twitter responded with immediate criticism from fans and comments on the post topped eight thousand. One user snarked, “Trump thanks you for your service.” Another sagely replied, “Sometimes one can be too woke. West has ZERO chance of winning.” 

Someone quite sensibly pointed out that “He’s too late to get on the majority of state ballots,” and incredulously added, “Also… really?” 

West has come under scrutiny for statements made in an interview where he named his political party “The Birthday Party,” because, “When we win, it’s everybody’s birthday.” Then said, “We need to stop doing things that make God mad,” to cure the coronavirus. Also noting that he would structure the White House after the fictional country of Wakanda from Marvel’s Black Panther

Chance went on a Twitter rant that had his name trending when he took a poll about reparations and was disappointed by the results. He also questioned how followers felt about “prison abolition” and “universal basic housing.”  Then went on to say that “everyone voting for Biden isn’t necessarily doing so enthusiastically.”

The rapper utilized his popular status to call on the Chicago Police to “admit to and denounce the assassination of Fred Hampton,” a Black Panther Activist killed in a 1969 police raid.

Give this fellow some credit. Anyone with even a shred of decency and sense should denounce Joe Biden for the scum that he is.

Let’s hope so. Even a small exodus would doom Biden’s chances.

Watched a black Portland Police Officer tell FOX News (you would never see it anywhere else) that he had to tolerate listening to white punk rioters in Portland berate him and other black police officers calling them Uncle Toms, telling him how big his nose was.
Wait, wait I thought these spoiled white punks were supposed to be sticking up for all blacks against the evil white man!!!
Now all of you must know how much those black police officers would LOVE to be able to kick the living poop out of those white punk wussies.
I would pay to watch it!!!!!!!!

WHOEVER these PROTESTER’S ARE? They Do Not Speak For The MAJORITY Of BLACK AMERICA! They act like they are Representing EVERYONE? … NONE OF The BLACK COMMUNITY I KNOW? Wants NOTHING TO DO WITH THE GROUP CALLED BLM? … They Do Not Care About Black People. They are A DOMESTIC TERRORIST GROUP USING BLACK STRUGGLES TO Push Their INSANE AGENDA’S. … NOBODY AGREE’S WITH THESE RADICALS??? SHUT THEM DOWN! … A LAW Needs To Be ENACTED: ALL PROTESTS NEED TO END BEFORE DUSK/DARK. … Anyone Caught Out “After DARK Protesting” Will Be ARRESTED. We Are Sick And Tired Of OUR CITIES and BUSINESSES Being DESTROYED By These DOMESTIC TERRORISTS.
