Conservative rapper Kanye West may have broken with his past support for Donald Trump… but don’t think that means he’s becoming a liberal any time soon.
West, who has touted a presidential run in 2020, torched the Democratic Party… over their “racism and white supremacy.”
The Democrats have controlled African-Americans to the point that “this white man can tell a black man if you don’t vote for me, you’re not black,” West said.
West was referencing comments Joe Biden made back in February, where he famously said that black Trump supporters “ain’t black” if they don’t vote Democrat.
“That is a form of racism and white supremacy and white control to say that all Black people need to be Democrat and to assume that me running is me splitting the vote. All of that information is being charged up on social media platforms by Democrats,” West said, in an interview with Forbes magazine.
“And Democrats used to tell me, the same Democrats have threatened me,” he added. “The reason why this is the first day I registered to vote is because I was scared. I was told that if I voted on Trump my music career would be over.”
“I was threatened into being in one party. I was threatened as a celebrity into being in one party. I was threatened as a Black man into the Democratic party,” West said. The Grammy-winner tore into former Vice President turned presidential candidate Joe Biden (D) over his declaration in May that black Americans “ain’t black” if they chose to support President Donald Trump in the November election.
“And that’s what the Democrats are doing, emotionally, to my people. Threatening them to the point where this white man can tell a Black man if you don’t vote for me, you’re not Black,” West added.
West has said he’s running for president in 2020 under the “Birthday Party” banner.
It’s not clear what work, if any, West has actually done to get on the ballot. West has already missed the deadline to file in several states.
