Kanye West has hit on the formula to empower Blacks in America. For too long Blacks have voted Democrat by huge margins, and as a result, gave up all the political power they could have had because the Democrats knew they would get their vote no matter what, and the Republicans have no incentive to work for the Black community because they were never going to get their vote anyway. Take affirmative action as an example. As bad as it was, it was a Republican president that pushed it through, specifically, President Richard Nixon.
Blacks don’t even need to give Republicans the majority of their votes. Twenty-five percent would do it. It would take a lot of wins out of the Democrats column and move them to Republican. Suddenly, you would see both parties pushing for legislation that improves the lives of Black Americans across the board.
Kanye recognizes this fact, and he also pledges to move his factories to the United States, where he will employ Americans and help make America even greater than President Trump already has.
Kanye West urged black Americans to “own your power” and not just vote for Democrats during an event in New York City on Thursday.
The rapper was speaking at a session of the Fast Company Innovation Festival, the New York Post’s “Page Six” reported.
During the wide-ranging interview, West said black Americans should “own your power.”
“Your power is not to just vote Democrat for the rest of our lives,” he said. “That’s not the power.”
“The power is when I talk to my lawyer,” West added.
“I put on my trench coat and said, ‘We’re moving these factories to America, and that’s how it’s going to be’ — and it’s lovely.”
West also spoke about his Yeezy brand of apparel and his plans to bring manufacturing for the brand to the Americas.
