So this is how close the mid-term elections are. My next cardiologist appointment is after the Nov. elections.
And into this fray enters Kanye West.The singer-songwriter has come back to Twitter with a vengeance after a year-long absence. Not sure if it was self-imposed or deemed damaging to his wife’s family brand?
Kanye — through his tweets — has come out speaking about self-reliance and how it pertains to the African-American community. Backing a conservative black woman named Candace Owens and her thoughts on how the Democrats have used the black vote every two years and yet have not provided any solutions along the way.
Owens tweeted last Friday: “Far right? Allow me to clarify: I believe the black community can do it without hand-outs. I believe the Democrats have strapped us to our past to prevent us from our futures. And I won’t stop fighting until all black Americans see that.
I’m not far right—I’m free.”
With Kayne replying to the tweet: “Love the way Candace Owens thinks.”
The mid-term elections will begin to challenge the African-American community’s blind faith in the Democratic Party and what it stands for. Memes are circulating to challenge the party’s heritage with African-American voters, telling them how no Democrats stood up for the ending of slavery or the right to vote.
President Trump is tweeting about how there are fewer African-Americans on public assistance like food stamps now than during the Obama Administration.
Understanding of course that this allegiance with the African-American community will not happen overnight and how the Democrats with their legions of community activists will fight long and hard for the rank and file votes, nonetheless younger voices like West and Owens show that the future could be brighter.
