(National Sentinel)Â Angry:Â In an age when black unemployment is near historic lows and the president gets credit for that, more blacks are becoming supporters of POTUS. One of them is rapper Kanye West.
Over the past year, heâ€™s become one of the presidentâ€™s biggest supporters in the black community, though that support has not come without a cost.
â€œThe blacks werenâ€™t always Democrats. You know itâ€™s like the plan they did, to take the fathers out the home and put them on welfare. Does anybody know about that? Thatâ€™s a Democratic plan,â€ West said during his opening monologue onÂ Saturday Night LiveÂ last weekend while wearing a â€œMake America Great Againâ€ hat. He also called out the entertainment industry and â€˜mainstreamâ€™ media, correctly noting that the vast majority of people in those industries are Left-wing Democrat supporters,Â Breitbart NewsÂ reported.
â€œThey bullied me backstage. They said, â€˜donâ€™t go out there with that hat on.â€™ They bullied me backstage. They bullied me! And then they say Iâ€™m in a sunken place,â€ he said during his monologue.
Heâ€™s since been derided and degraded by those in his own community. In particular, he was pilloried by fellow rapper Snoop Dogg,Â who called him an â€œUncle Tomâ€Â (because thatâ€™s the fall-back insult for blacks by other blacks who refuse to stay on the Democrat Plantation).
This is a paragraph of content.
But it gets worse. The Corporate Left is also attacking West, financially, for his pro-Trump demeanor.Â The Daily WireÂ reports that now the NBA may be looking to ban Westâ€™s trademark sneakers from professional basketball courts over what they claim is a â€œglaring design flaw.â€
ABC NewsÂ reported the leagueÂ will â€œlikely banâ€ Westâ€™s â€œhighly anticipated Adidas basketball sneakerâ€ this season:
Adidas athletes were expected to debut the new shoe on the court during the 2018-2019 season, but NBA officials are unlikely to approve the kicks without a redesign, according to the report.Â
Citing sports industry sources, ESPN said the NBA would find the shoeâ€™s gleaming reflective heels far too distracting for audiences in the arena and at home.
Timing is everything. The NBA didnâ€™t announce that it was considering banning Westâ€™s sneakers until Monday â€“ two days after his SNL appearance. And you know, the league has had the designs for some time.
For the record, â€œsunken placeâ€ refers to a state of hypnosis in the movie, â€œGet Out,â€ where blacksâ€™ consciousness is forced into a state of subservience by white liberals. So, itâ€™s a smear.
As a billionaire businessman who often helped the black community during his days as a real estate mogul, Donald Trump was a pretty good guy who was generous and kind. In fact, black â€œleadersâ€ like Jesse Jackson said so, like when heÂ thanked him for a lifetime of service to the community.
â€œI want to express thanks to you, Donald Trump, for being with us tonight,â€ Rainbow Coalition leader Jesse Jackson said at an event in January 1998 that was captured live at the time byÂ C-SPAN2.
â€œWe need your building skills, your gusto, your rent package for people on Wall Street who represent diversity, and, we thank you for coming tonight,â€ he said, sharing a laugh with Trump. â€œLetâ€™s give Donald Trump a big hand.â€
Jackson also said Trump â€œcreated a comfort zone for many peopleâ€ when the civil rights leader ran for the presidency in 1984 and 1988. He also credited Trump for attending minority business meetings in New York, in order to lend assistance to various causes.
However, in an interview in June withÂ Fox Newsâ€™ Laura Ingraham, Jackson sang a different tune now that â€œfriendâ€ and businessman Donald Trump is Republican President Trump. During the interview, Jackson credited Barack Obama for Trumpâ€™s growing economy, and supported black athletesâ€™ claims that they feel â€œinsulted by the violations of our people by this president.â€
