“Kanye West is what happens when Negros Don’t Read’. Can you imagine that sentence being said about ANY black DEMOCRAT — without massive outrage?
Hell no. But at CNN, it’s open season on Republicans… especially any Republicans that might undermine the narrative of Democrats being the only acceptable choice for women and minorities.
Kanye committed the great sin of telling Black citizens they can support whatever party they damned well please… and CNN hates him for it.
I am LIVID.

Imagine what would have happened if, instead of slamming Kanye, you directed the ‘Negros don’t read’ line against, say, Lebron ‘King’ James, whose command of the English language is, to put it kindly …. dubious.

Then again, you didn’t actually believe CNN was non-partisan, did you?
There is a small chance that a handful of people out there still think CNN delivers unbiased news. The screen time devoted to Michael Avanetti should have been enough to disabused most stragglers of that opinion.
If that wasn’t enough to convince them, perhaps this will.
Kanye, who supported Candace Owens against the twitter mob for her ‘great sin’ of being a prominent young black woman who had switched her political support to the right, committed a ‘grave sin’ of his own.
He told the world that black people can support whoever the hell they want to support, politically. They have zero moral obligation to support Democrats just because conventional wisdom is that it’s the supposed default party of minorities.
Sorry, Democrats, emancipation has been declared and black citizens aren’t anyone’s slaves anymore.
That applies to their minds and politics just as much as it does to their bodies and work. Sorry to burst your bubble.
Deal with it.
