I want to give Kanye West props for standing up for free speech and free thought.
Recently, we all watched how the media and Dems tore into Justice Brett Kavanaugh and his family with disgusting lies and down-right demonic slurs.
Why attack Kavanaugh? Because Trump selected him. They would have attacked anyone Trump nominated.
With Kanye, it's pretty much the same thing. It's as if the media is saying "how dare anyone, especially a black person, have a friendship with -- or support this President of the United States."
So, then comes the derogatory name-calling: minstrel, Uncle Tom, coon, "negro," and the other "n" word delivered by plantation blacks to the delight of their white colleagues.
Are we really surprised? Unfortunately, no.
The Dems and liberals will always attempt to marginalize black people who "step out of line."
I experienced similar attacks years ago when I decided to compete in the formerly all-white Miss America Pageant* rather than compete in the all black pageant.
I received racially charged name-calling and death-threats from white people as well as racial slurs from many blacks.
Note to Kanye: Sometimes it's hard to stand in the midst of an overwhelming flood. So, you learn to swim -- and even float.
I know I did, and in a very small way, I helped to change the face of America's girl next door.
Kanye and I don't agree on much, but regarding President Trump, I stand with him as one of the thousands and thousands of black so-called "tokens" who truly believe President Trump -- with God's grace -- has the ability to make America great, maybe even greater than ever before.
