After rapper Kanye West’s meeting yesterday with President Donald J. Trump in the Oval Office, the GOP's talking heads on the evening TV news shows quickly proclaimed Kanye as the new black leader for African-America. Kanye, who embarrassed African-Americans across the nation during his visit with Trump, put on a degrading “Stepin Fetchit” minstrel show that has not been seen in America since the 1930s.
If Kanye West is the GOP’s chosen role model for African-Americans, then Republicans need to become very familiar with the shameful lyrics to the songs he writes. Let’s start with his current hit song, “I love it” (courtesy of Sony/ATV Music Publishing, LLC):
“Cause you know in the old days they couldn't say the shit they wanted to say They had the fake orgasms and shit We can tell niggas today "hey, I wanna cum, mothafucka"
You're such a fuckin' ho, I love it (I love it) You're such a fuckin' ho, I love it (I love it) You're such a fuckin' ho, I love it (Love it, love it) (I'ma fuck a bitch, tell her cousin) Your boyfriend is a dork, McLovin (dork, McLovin, ooh, ooh, ooh) I just pulled up in a Ghost (Ghost) Fucked that bitch up out in London (up out in) Then I fucked up on her cousin Or her sister, I don't know nothin' (uh-uh, woo) And my niggas gettin' ignorant Like a lighter, bitch, we ignant (ignant, yeah) All this water on my neck Look like I fell when I went fishin' (fell) So much diamonds on my bust down Ooh, fuck, what's the time? (where we at?) Me and Smokepurpp sippin' drank (aye!) Ooh, fuck, she take lines (lines)
You're such a fuckin' ho, I love it (scoop!) (I love it) You're such a fuckin' ho, I love it (I love it)
You're such a fuckin' ho When the first time they ask you if you want sparklin' or still? Why you try to act like you was drinkin' sparklin' water 'fore you came out here? You're such a fuckin' ho I'm a sick fuck, I like a quick fuck (whoop!) I'm a sick fuck, I like a quick fuck (whoop!) I'm a sick fuck, I like a quick fuck (whoop!) I'm a sick fuck, I like a quick fuck (whoop!)
I'm a sick fuck, I like a quick fuck I like my dick sucked, I'll buy you a sick truck I'll buy you some new tits, I'll get you that nip-tuck How you start a family? The condom slipped up I'm a sick fuck, I'm inappropriate I like hearin' stories, I like that ho shit I wanna hear mo' shit, I like the ho shit Send me some mo' shit, you triflin' ho bitch (bitch, bitch, bitch)
You're such a fuckin' ho, I love it (I love it) You're such a fuckin' ho, I love it (I love it)
'Cause you know in the old days they couldn't say the shit they wanted to say They had the fake orgasms and shit We can tell niggas today "hey, I wanna cum, mothafucka."
I see why President Trump, who calls women “dogs” and “pigs,” thinks Kayne West is a “terrific guy.” Kanye was so at home with Trump that he started using the term “mothafucka” in the Oval Office. Nobody tried to stop Kanye from slinging profanity in the Oval Office. It did not matter to the President or his cronies.
In “Get Em High”, Kanye wrote these famous lyrics:
“Now, throw your motherfucking hands Get 'em high All the girls pass the weed to your motherfucking man Get 'em high Now I ain't never tell you to put down your hands Keep 'em high And if your losing your high then smoke again Keep 'em high.”
The African-American community does not need this kind of toxic musical poison from a successful cultural suicide bomber, whether he is on the loose in the White House or hanging around the Poor House. While President Trump admires men who use terms like “bitch” and “ho” to describe our mothers, sisters, daughters, and nieces, these men are not legitimate role models for African-Americans (or anybody else).
While the recreational use of “weed” may be fashionable with Kanye West and his White House admirers, it has no useful place in our efforts to build and enhance African-American communities around the nation.
Court jesters and minstrels have been around for thousands of years. They provide a form of nauseating entertainment for the ruling class. In Kanye West’s case, the GOP should not try to convert this modern-day “Stepin Fetchit” minstrel into real world leader for African-Americans.
