"Kanye West is what happens when ne*ros don't read."

When a prominent African American steps out of the Democrat line, this is what happens.

"Kanye West is what happens when ne*ros don't read."

When a prominent African American steps out of the Democrat line, this is what happens.

When anyone chooses to vote against their interest, it becomes notable -- although given the size of his wealth he's got more calculations to make -- does money outweigh other concerns? It should also be noted that he is diagnosed as mentally ill, and has a history of doing things for attention.

But when the Republican party bases part of its strategy on disenfranchising people of color and gerrymandering districts to keep them white, and its leader constantly utters racial dog whistles and voices support for neo-nazis and white supremacists ("there were good people on both sides"), it becomes counterintuitive for people of color to vote Republican. Trump received 8% of the black vote in 2016, 93% of black voters disapprove of Trump, and 80% support his impeachment, according to a poll just over a month old. I'm guessing most African-Americans -- and most people in general -- are saying WTF to Kanye's embrace of Trump.

Log Cabin Republicans are another example of a bloc that votes against its interest, but that's another kettle of fish.

*** I should add that West also said that slavery was "a choice" and tweeted that the US should abolish the 13th Amendment -- you know, the one abolishing slavery. It's not surprising there is anger among African-Americans directed at West, and it's not surprising some people on the right are holding him up as some kind of martyr.

I don't care anything about Kanye. It's just humorous to me, as soon as an African American falls out of line, they're on national television calling him a ne*ro.

The Quran 39:68 Az Zumar (The troops)

And the Horn will be blown, and whoever is in the heavens and whoever is on the earth will fall dead except whom Allah wills. Then it will be blown again, and at once they will be standing, looking on.

In other news, the Republican Club in Manhattan decided it would be a good idea to invite Proud Boy Gavin McInnes to give a lecture on a murdered Japanese socialist in the 1960s. Nothing like one of the two mainstream political parties in the USA normalizing racism, xenophobia, anti-semitism and street-level political thuggery.

Ole dude must have gotten sick of the propaganda Vice (of which he was one of the three co-founders) was putting out, and jumped off the deep end in the other direction.

I had to Google him, had never heard of him. He's a Canadian citizen.

This club deal in NY, is it officially affiliated with the GOP, or just some social club some folks started?

On the subject of racism, seems a lot of folks are rather unhappy with CNN at present. Apparently, the Black Delegation is trading Kanye, the "token ne*ro as one put it on that show, in the upcoming racial draft.

The Chappelle show, it lives on.

Seems you are correct, though, one party is mainstreaming racism. They're on national television calling an African American racial slurs, and laughing about it the whole time they were doing it.

Whataboutism. You're good at it, I'll give you that.

Seeing as the Rebuplican Club in Manhattan is headquarters to GOP candidates' campaigns, I'd say there is a pretty strong connection.

And it's not the dems who are disenfranchising enormous groups of minorities -- following a narrow Dem victory in North Dakota, the Republicans instituted a voter ID law that will disenfranchise 70,000 Native Americans (20% of the voting population) because they live in rurual areas and use PO Boxes on their IDs. This was upheld by the Supreme Court on Tuesday of last week.

There are several other examples of Republicans attempting to disenfranchise minority voters who tend to vote Democratic. Not to mention gerrymandering.

But sure, Democrats are racists because someone on CNN called Kanye a "token negro." Without explaining to you the nature of the differences between whites and blacks using racial terms, I'll just say that to me this isn't a that big of a deal. The first use was a Chris Rock reference. The second was a clumsy attempt to articulate how Kanye is likely viewed in the White House -- you know, because as I mentioned black opposition against Trump is something like 90%. Not a great decision, especially since it would be seized on by the right as an example of CNN's racism (internalized racism? Since it was a black woman who said it? Doesn't that matter?) When you have whites using racial slurs it's a different matter. Like Gavin McInnes, you know, the white supremacist speaking at the GOP club in Manhattan, one that serves as headquarters for GOP candidates.

So you've got one person on CNN making a clumsy statement, and you have years of action by the GOP, explicitly articulated by Nixon and carried forward ever since. Hmmm...
