Kanye West’s Latest Sunken Place Political Message Has Twitter Disgusted

The rapper continues to be offensive.

Published October 28, 2018

As voter suppression is in full swing, as Trump is rolling back Obama policies to stop the wrongful incarceration of Black people and as a record number of African-Americans are running for office, Kanye West is encouraging Black people to vote Republican.

The rapper, who has admitted to never voting a day in his life and is a "proud" non-reader of books, designed shirts called “Blexit” or “Black Exit." The shirts debuted at debuted Saturday at the Young Black Leadership Summit in Washington, D.C., which is organized by Turning Point USA’s Candace Owens, who is loved by the Republican party for her anti-Blackness and once said the NRA was a civil rights organization that protected Black people from the KKK

Candace Ownens told a crowd of sunken place folks, “Blexit is a renaissance and I am blessed to say that this logo, these colors, were created by my dear friend and fellow superhero Kanye West. [West] has taken one of the boldest steps in America to open a conversation we have needed to have.”

See the shirt below:

  1. Twitter is obviously destroying him. Check out the tweets.

  2. This backlash won't stop Kanye. The irony is he just donated $73,000 to Amara Enyia, who is a Black woman, Democrat and running for mayor of Chicago. She was recently endorsed by Chance The Rapper.

    Kim Kardashian's husband is clearly lost in the world.
