Kanye West is making sure that explains why he continues to support President Trump.
During a Sunday Service session that took place on Saturday afternoon (October 5th), in Salt Lake City, Utah, Ye addressed the crowd and spoke about the stigma of being a Black Republican, and why he feels it is unfair to criticize him for his beliefs.
Ye said,” That’s the Republican Party that freed the slaves. People wanna call me a coon ‘cause I chose my right. And we got the right, right? We got a right to our opinions, right? You Black, so you can’t like Trump. I ain’t never made a decision based on my color. That’s a form of slavery, mental slavery.”
West also went on to say that Abraham Lincoln, who was a Republican, signed the Emancipation Proclamation that would eventually abolish U.S.slavery in 1865.
