Skip to comments.Kanye West: 'More Outrage Over Me Wearing a Trump Hat' than Black-on-Black Crime

Rap superstar and culture critic Kanye West accused many in the black community of hypocrisy by focusing more of their outrage on white violence against black people or his decision to wear a Donald Trump campaign hat than the problems in black communities. Black people have a tendency to focus and march when a white person kills a black person or wears a hat, but when its 700 kids being killed in Chicago its O.K., Kanye West said during a lengthy and wide-ranging interview with TMZ boss Harvey Levin on Tuesday.
The Grammy-winning rapper-producers words infuriated Van Lathan, a black reporter at the TMZ office who said Kanye was lying, pointing to people in those communities working to improve them.
Theres been more focus and more marches about whites killing blacks than kids in Chicago killing each other, West continued. Ninety percent of black people being killed are killed by other blacks.
Indeed, to Kanyes point, according to the FBIs latest annual Crime in the United States report, 90 percent of black Americans killed in 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2013 were killed by blacks.
Lathan continued shouting at the rapper, some of which was censored, prompting West to walk across the room to give him a hug.
I love you, bro, he said. I am sorry I hurt you with my words.
Bro you gotta be responsible, man
your voice is too big, Lathan replied.

Go Kanye!!! TRUTH!
He is on a roll ..
That’s my mofo dawg! Ruff, ruff!
He went there! Go Kanye!
The perpetual wrong headed decisions of the left.
Gutless reporter who took Kayne on is a tool.
Go Kanye! Anyone who is willing to study Thomas Sowell ‘s thoughts has great
I appreciate his willingness to take one for his team.
I pray that he stays safe.
Knock me over with a feather...
Prayers for his safety.
He’s right..and Black Lives Matter is a total fraud organization. Two days ago a 15 year old girl named Hannah Bell was murdered while standing at a burger stand in South Central LA..yes there was a candlelight vigil in her honor and calls to end the violence, but I didn’t see BLM show up and demand justice for her..not a peep..because she wasn’t murdered by a cop..she was killed by another black
Democrats always loved their black thugs murdering other blacks and threatening other blacks.
Maybe the Kadarshians can reverse their antigun stance too
proglib phony outrage
Illegitimately shaming others to claim moral superiority.
I believe they act out being “outraged” at every minuet detail of anyone or anything Republican, conservatives, Christian, mature, restrained or properly educated.
The reality is they are outraged at themselves for being so easily duped and tricked by other proglibs hitting them up for money and then losing to President of the United States Donald John Trump (I love saying that out loud, it really blisters their butts) whom they believe to be of low intelligence and inferior to themselves.
oh no he didnt! Kanye West: Obama Was Opioids to the Black Community http://www.breitbart.com/big-hollywood/2018/05/01/kanye-west-obama-opioids-black-community/
