Rap superstar Kanye West defended his decision to back President Trump over the weekend during one of his Sunday services, as well as blasting the ‘mental slavery’ of voting for a candidate based soley on their skin color. As The Daily Wire reports:
Music icon and fashion bigwig Kanye West has once again demonstrated that his support for President Trump stems from a deep conviction within himself rather than a momentary burst of “dragon energy.”
Over the weekend, while speaking before his audience at another of his Sunday Services, this time in Salt Lake City, West argued that for black Americans, voting for a candidate based solely on skin color is a form of “mental slavery.” The rapper even lauded the Republican Party’s history on race relations, starting all the way back to when Abraham Lincoln helped free the slaves.
“That’s the Republican Party that freed the slaves,” West said, as reported by the Washington Examiner…
“And we got the right, right? We got a right to our opinions, right?” he asked. “You black, so you can’t like Trump? I ain’t never made a decision only based on my color. That’s a form of slavery, mental slavery.”
