🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 Rap icon and fashion mogul Kayne West told GQ magazine that he is “definitely voting” in November and intends to support President Donald Trump and urges black Americans to ignore the media’s manipulative messaging. During the wide-ranging interview published in the men’s magazine on Wednesday, West explained his decision to support President Trump and don his red “Make America Great Again” cap. GQ asked if the Grammy-winner considered himself a “forward thinker.” “I buy real estate,” West exclaimed. “It’s better now than when Obama was in office. They don’t teach you in school about buying property. They teach you how to become somebody’s property.” West explained that celebrity culture is about control, and it’s the same kind of control that the mainstream media wields to keep American misinformed. “I remember when I became a billionaire I was told not to say out loud that I was a billionaire. What?” West said. “What? What is the point of being a billionaire if you can’t even say it out loud? We’re not completely free yet.” West also talked about the percaisivness of the victim mentality he says he sees too often among black Americans. “George Bush doesn’t care about black people” is a victim statement. This white person didn’t do something for us. That is stemmed in victim mentality,” he said of his infamous post-Hurricane Katrina comments. “Every day I have to look in the mirror like I’m Robert De Niro and tell myself, “You are not a slave.” As outspoken as I am, and the position that I am in, I need to tell myself.”
