After inspiring an untold number of black Americans to finally ditch the Democratic Party for good, rapper Kanye West is saying that he’s “done with politics”, adding that he’s been pushed into spreading messages that he doesn’t believe in.
This might seem like a blow to the #WalkAway movement West and other prominent black activists helped inspire, but it is showing no signs of slowing down. Whether Kanye or any other high-profile black star is in the spotlight or not, black Americans have already swallowed the red pill, and now understand that the Democratic Party does not truly represent their interests.
The Democratic Party has been able to convince black Americans that it is their only option during elections for decades — and convince this marginalized group to overlook the fact that just about every black population center is governed by Democrats. These population centers are often the site of violence, crime, and poverty. This is why more and more blacks are finally asking themselves: what have the Democrats actually done to help?
This is a rare and moral opportunity for the Republicans. For too long, the media has been able to run with the idea that Republicans are racists, ignoring the fact that black people do very well under conservative leadership — right now is a great example.
If this trend continues, it may become impossible for the Democrats to win another major election ever again — and that’s great news for blacks.
