    All of the attention Kanye West has received over the past two months for his public show of support for President Donald Trump has not had any negative impact on his career (for those who think it had, or should have, or must have). Although many in the music industry (and the mainstream media) attacked the rapper, he actually made history, thanks to the success of his latest album, Ye. The album has about sold over 200,000 copies and marks Wests eighth consecutive No. 1 album on Billboards top 200. In other words, every single one of his albums to...

    MORAN, Wyo. At around 10 p.m. Thursday at the Diamond Cross Ranch here, Chris Rock stepped up on a small platform, looked out over a few hundred people huddled around a wildly flickering bonfire, and leaned in to his convocation. I touched a moose! he exclaimed, and the moose said to me, Hey, theres a lot of well, lets just say people who dont ordinarily gather on a ranch in Wyoming. He nodded toward the fire. Tomorrow night that will be a cross, he deadpanned. Hip-hop, he said, is the first art form created by free black...

    Kanye West may believe hes out of the sunken place but judging by a recent tally, it looks like hes still there. A new CNN Poll shows West is more popular among white people than non-white people. The poll states 23 percent of people who identified themselves as white said they had a favorable opinion of Ye, while only 20 percent of those who said theyre non-white feel the same. Meanwhile, 53 percent said they had an unfavorable opinion of West overall. Interviews were conducted from May 2 to May 5, 2018 among a sample of 1,015 respondents. The landline...

    In the aftermath of the Kanye West dust-up, my heart goes out to the white people who control the Democratic Party. My pity stems from the hip-hop megastars November announcement to his packed concert audience that he did not vote in the presidential election but if he had, he would have voted for Donald Trump. Then, on April 21, West took to his Twitter account, which has 28 million followers, to announce, I love the way Candace Owens thinks. Owens is Turning Point USAs director of urban engagement and has said that former President Barack Obama caused damage to race...

    On Wednesday, President Donald Trump joined Kanye West in tweeting his support for Candace Owens, the black liberal-turned-conservative who serves as communications director for Turning Point USA. Turning Point is the pro-Trump nonprofit organization that brings controversial right-wing speakers like Ann Coulter and Milo Yiannopoulos to college campuses. In March, Turning Points founder, Charlie Kirk, interviewed Trump at the White House during a Generation Next forum where conservative millennials and administration leaders talked about policy and how it affects their lives. Its clear political strategies centering on black America are being brainstormed at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, and TPUSA is playing...

    Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif) called rapper Kanye West's recent favorable comments about President Trump "deeply disturbing. Polls already show that Trump's popularity with Black males has doubled over the last week. This is destabilizing the Black community and causing many to doubt the roles assigned to them by the Democratic Party." "By breaking ranks with Black leaders, Kanye is venturing into territory he shouldn't," the Congresswoman asserted. "He has no expertise in politics. If he wants to speak on the topic he should clear what he wants to say with those of us who do have expertise. We will give...

    Kanye West wants freedomwhite freedom. I could only have seen it there, on the waxed hardwood floor of my elementary-school auditorium, because I was young then, barely seven years old, and cable had not yet come to the city, and if it had, my father would not have believed in it. Yes, it had to have happened like this, like folk wisdom, because when I think of that era, I do not think of MTV, but of the futile attempt to stay awake and navigate the yawning whiteness of Friday Night Videos, and I remember that there were no VCRs...

    A Cleveland-based pastor who serves as an outside advisor to the White House has revealed President Trump wants to have multiple meetings about race issues with Colin Kaepernick, Kanye West and other athletes and musicians during an official summit at the White House. Pastor Darrell Scott told that President Trump is 100 percent for the summit and is very enthusiastic about the idea of inviting Kaepernick, whom he previously called terrible for kneeling during the national anthem before NFL games. Details of the meetings will be ironed out next week, but Scott said they will be a melting pot...

    Black male support for President Donald Trump doubled in just one week, according to a Reuters poll on presidential approval. A poll taken on April 22, 2018 had Trumps approval rating among black men at 11 percent, while the same poll on April 29, 2018 pegged the approval rating at 22 percent.

Trump experienced a similar jump in approval among black people overall, spiking from 8.9 percent on April 22 to 16.5 percent on April 29. Black males were...

When you hear about slavery for 400 years. For 400 years?! That sounds like a choice. Like, you were there for 400 years and its all of you all?

    Kanye West, the rap superstar who stunned the left by declaring President Trump "his brother," has better reasons than might be imagined for defying Hollywood and going over to the redside: He dealt with President Obama up close. And what he found - and has now revealed - is that Obama was an incredibly selfish jerk. According to Pajamas Media's Megan Fox, who ventured into the depths of the rap music press, Kanye told an interviewer known as 'Charlemagne': "You see, Obama came to me before he ran for office and he met with me and my mother to let...
