Kanye West Thinks That Black Women Are Being ‘Brainwashed’ By Democrats And Forced To Have Abortions

Just as soon as we thought Kanye West might have realized it might be time to take a seat and lay low, the artist opened his mouth again. Speaking about the state of our country and his polarizing political views, the rapper that fans once called a “genius” claimed that Black American has been brainwashed into allowing Democrats to make us “abort our children.”

In a recent interview with radio DJ Big Boy on Friday in support of his new album Jesus is King, West declared that Black Americans have turned against him for his conservative political stance.

“We always pointing at the white people but yet we wanna spend all our money on foreigns, on luxury, as opposed to going and buying some land,” West asserted. “The culture has you focused on f***ing somebody’s b***h, and pulling up in a foreign, and rapping about things that could get you locked up and then saying you about prison reform … we brainwashed out here, bro.”

Describing himself as a “free man talking,” West went onto further claim that “Democrats had us voting Democrats for food stamps for years, bro. Guns in the ’80s, taking the fathers out the homes, Plan B, lowering our votes, making us abort our children.”

The rapper continued by criticizing the rationale that he should take a certain political stance or cause because of his race. “When I was sitting at the Met balls, when I was sitting in front of white people and they thought, ‘I wouldn’t thought you’d like Trump because of the racism’ … So, you mean to tell me I make every decision based off my color? The most racist thing a person could tell me is that I’m supposed to choose something based on my race.”

Later on in the interview, West said that he had ancestors who fought for the right to vote for their own opinions. 

Pointing to his own parents, West said in his interview that they were both part of the civil rights movement “fighting for us to have the right to our opinion, not the right to vote for whoever the white liberals said black people are supposed to vote for.”  

West, who has fallen in popularity due to his ongoing support of Trump and unfair Criticisms of the Black community said that he still backs the president.

Back in April of 2018, West appeared in an interview at the offices the tabloid entertainment site  at the offices the tabloid entertainment site TMZ  and implied that the hundreds of years-long enslavement of African Americans was a “choice.” “When you hear about slavery for 400 years … for 400 years? That sounds like a choice,” he said. Later, after much backlash, West  tweeted that his comments on Tuesday had been misinterpreted and that he “brought up the 400 years point because we can’t be mentally imprisoned for another 400 years.” He quickly lost even more control over the conversation when he compared abolitionist Harriet Tubman “We need free thought now. Even the statement was an example of free thought. It was just an idea.”

In his recent interview which took place last Friday, West said that he’d rather deal with Trump than someone who is racist to his face.

“I’d rather deal with somebody who call me a N-word to my face than a person that sign me to a lifetime deal with a 255-page contract,” the rapper reasoned. “I’d rather know what I’m dealing with.”

It didn’t take long for users to hit back at West. 

Addressing West’s latest controversial comments, late-night host Trevor Noah called West out of touch and highlighted that Black women vote in higher numbers than any other group. 

“You know who doesn’t mess around with their votes in America? Black women. They don’t. They do not. And I refuse to live in a world where I go, ‘Black women have been brainwashed.’ No, I don’t think black women in America have been—or can be—brainwashed. I think, if anything, black women in America have the least leeway when it comes to messing around with their vote,” said Noah. “Black women in America are like, no, I know where my vote needs to go because I know how important this is to me, because, as a woman and as a black person combined, the impacts of my vote are exponentially felt. I have a higher rate of mortality when I’m giving birth, I have a higher chance of not getting a loan, I have a higher chance of not getting a job, I will get exponentially less for doing the same job as somebody else. As a black woman, I cannot afford to mess around with this vote. That, to me, is not a brainwashed person. That’s not a victim.”
