The fallout continues for free-thinker Kanye West in the wake of his controversial "slavery" comment that was taken out of context. A radio show in Detroit, Michigan has banned the rap producer's music from the station's airwaves.

105.1 The Bounce's DJs BiGG and Shay Shay announced they will not play the "Jesus Walks" hitmaker's music for suggesting slavery was a "choice" during a TMZ Live chat earlier this week.

Station bosses also launched a #MuteKanye censorship campaign via Facebook.com.

Kanye fled California earlier this week amid all the ruckus over his personal opinions. He is currently in Wyoming working on 2 albums, scheduled for release on June 1st.

Many celebrities criticized Kanye over his remarks, with rapper-turned-TV personality Eve insisting she was "done" with the rapper.

In an interview with Hot 97, singer/actress Janelle Monáe said, “I believe in free thinking, but I don’t believe in free thinking if it’s rooted in, or at the expense of the oppressed. If your free thinking is used as fuel by oppressors to continue to oppress black people, minorities, I think it’s bullshit and it’s not OK."

However, other stars have supported Kanye, insisting he has the right to free speech like any other U.S. citizen.

Atlanta rapper and activist David Banner said Kanye "has the right to say whatever he wants to say."

He added: “I’m more disappointed our people waste time on what anybody says. At the end of the day we put so much power in people who bounce basketballs, throw footballs or rap.”

And Justin Bieber took to Instagram on Thursday, writing: "Our job is to love, not to always agree. Love you Kanye."

    She said that in a way like she was picking off a scab. She spoke slowly and chose her words carefully.

    David banner said a mouthful tho...I really don't care what Kanye says and wish the media would stop interviewing him...

    Taken out of context? Really?

  • Jdove585

    I said the same thing ...... It's sad too because she has black children.

  • Phillybruh

    Who still listens to the radio. Everything is streamed these days.

  • Cocoa Rose

    Kanye is a phony. He supported his wife remembering the genocide of her people in Armenia. He knows better. He was just looking for attention.

  • KJBibleOnSlaveShips

    Ban Becky da Hoe also!!!

  • sunni_daze

    Well Kanye said himself that after that TSwift incident it became harder to get his music played, which I didn't really notice until he said it. They don't play his music much if at all where I am. And with his comments the other day I guess he sealed his fate.

  • zero options

    God bless you!

  • MsPam

    Sure! If Kanye comes out with banging music, he will be in heavy rotation!!! #Imsickofthisselfrighteouscomplainingkneegrows#

  • AnonyMous

    When white nfl owners did this to Kaepernick, it wasn’t fair. Now that it is being done by blacks to a fellow black, no big deal.

    Slavery is a choice.

  • YouWontSayItButIWill

    This is a man that stated on a verse in his lyrics....."I made Jesus walk so I am never going to hell." Don't play with God. Kanye is done. Jay Z is right behind....

  • Hugga Bunch

    And they also need to be muting all these damn mumblin' a** rappers.

    ' And Justin Bieber took to Instagram on Thursday, writing: “Our job is to love, not to always agree. Love you Kanye.” '
    -------------
    It's ok everyone, Bieber still likes him. Not like he misappropriated Latinos in botching "Despacito" live, used racist language in a remix of "One Less Lonely Girl," etc... yeah, Bieber should just shut up. He always should do that.

  • Dove Amerie

    lmao

  • Juslv374

    Exactly! People really think that they can mock God and really get away with it. I always cringe when I hear somebody do it.

  • Dun Dilly

    Kanye ain't going nowhere. As long as that album is fire, he's good. He's just an artist, anybody triggered from what Kanye says in 2018, just likes to be triggered.

  • Trace da Ace

    well I still stick with my original opinion...nobody did this to Kanye...he did it to himself....yes he has freedom of speech and all, but when you say it to the world...on a platform as TMZ...you are opening yourself up to criticism and debate. If Kanye thought his words was taken out of context...then he should have thought about it before he said it....period. He should have clarified the comment at that very moment....when Harvey and that black dude who's name escapes me at the moment....gave him the side eye. He should have cleared it up right then and there instead of waiting until the next day to tweet his clarification. Everything you say on a public platform has consequences...especially since he is such a "figure" in todays world...not sure what kind of "figure" as that is currently in question. Hopefully his album can help fix this...IONO

  • AQUEEN

    Really??? Pulling up Google now..

  • IAINTMADATCHA

    But are they still playing Robert Kelly ?

  • truthspeaker

    HOPEFULLY OTHER STATIONS FOLLOW SUIT. ESPECIALLY BLACK RADIO STATIONS. LET THE SLAVES STOP PLAYING HIS MUSIC!

  • Sid

    And it begins...

  • RICHIE_RICH

    ?????

  • Allihave2say

    I wish they wouldn't. I rarely listen to the radio but if I hear him I turn the radio off completely. Never let my kids play his music.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Wasn't he referring to the song Jesus Walks? As in, "since I made a song about God, I don't have to worry about going to Hell".

    Not taking up for him. Just giving my take on that particular lyric.

  • Allihave2say

    When Charles and Harvey looked down and away Kanye believed he was saying something thought provoking and powerful. It wasn't until Van called him out that he said he was sorry he hurt Van's feelings by his words. He still believed he was right in his expression.

    The issue here isn't about freedom of speech, he freely said it as we all heard. The issue is about the irresponsibility of his words. Do we ever hear folks say they have the right to say what they want about Jews and the Holocaust, especially a comment that implies they deserve the tragedies without the sword of the nation slicing them? No we don't.

    Kanye showed his ass already with the confederate flag. Now his mouth is writing checks his ass can't cash. I hope the Aryans buy his album on June 1. Even white folks know not to say that ash was a choice.

  • Allihave2say

    "“Our job is to love, not to always agree. Love you Kanye.” '
    It's easy for JB to make this proclamation because his family has CHOSEN to be slaves to substance abuse for decades and he has chosen to join them. It's their choice to be junkies.

  • Bonita

    But they're still playing R. Kelly . . . you have to be kidding me! This gives a lot of insight into the way people in the city of Detroit think. Now I understand why that city remains in the economic state that it's in. And northerners have the nerve to call southerners slow.

  • Allihave2say

    If a song secured folks not going to hell, on a secular album then surely Eddie Gonestroke is in heaven.

    Right! Kanye's words are as meaningless as Eddie's.

  • RespectSelf

    wow... this too much and way too far smh. you mean to tell me that R Kelly been F'n girls for years and his music is played... But they banning Kanye music for him not wording his thoughts correctly. smh

  • Knocked Kneed and Pigeon Toed

    TBH I feel like they using Kanye as a distraction to some bigger chit they dont want us to know about. Have you heard his last interview he sounds sedated and the entire interview sounded rehearsed. Why are the news stations, radio stations and media paying this Kanye thing so much attention. Something they ain't telling us!

  • Holler If Ya Hear Me

    Blacks folks have been well taught to tear each other down. White supremacists taught us.

    How about banning these rappers that call women bitches and hoes?

  • RespectSelf

    lol wow

  • Banka

    Unless they are interviewing him about music, We do not care about his stance on politics etc...... at least I don't!

  • RespectSelf

    Right!!!!!!!!!! This is wild dumb.

  • Banka

    Agreed I think to ban his music is just stupid.!

  • Applebootay

    Yup...here in Chicago anyway...

  • Applebootay

    This will continue to blow me...how can anyone accuse blacks of tearing Kanye down when the whole debacle was because he FIRST torn down our entire ancestry generation....He was speaking about US, BLACKS...SO THAT IS WHO IS GOING TO RESPOND>Furthermore, Its Kanye's white handlers that got him out here like that not us.....We are scolding him for not knowing enough about his history to even make a coherent opinion.....THE WHITE MAN is tearing down Kanye, with their drugs and fame and WOMEN....we just the audience...

  • Silknsatin

    Maybe...just maybe...they don't play his music, because they don't like it. Maybe their listeners aren't requesting it. Maybe he fell off. I think Kanye is a weirdo...and he's been a weirdo. I like some of his music, but I'm not a fan, and I'm from Chicago. Kanye played himself.

  • Wreckognize Game

    Well somebody at that radio station paid attention to his CTG interview because Kanye not getting radio play will hurt him. Ye claimed after the Taylor incident and othrr shenanigans it hurt his radio airplay and that concerned him as an artist.

  • Scromes1212

    So does the ban include songs he produced also? I'm confused, so drugs, bit*hs, hoes, pimps, killing, gangs is all ok for the radio but Jesus Walks is banned? Now that's sad

  • Coy little wink

    Idk...I think its much ado about nothing...like most news is

  • RespectSelf

    They are saying this because folks are not dumb... I will be the first to admit that Kanye be talking like he is crazy. But to suggest that kanye used the word "choice" to suggest that folks signed up for a slavery membership club is DUMB AS F%$*K. He was only saying that if blacks were not mentally enslaved then slavery wouldn't have lasted so long. But EVERYBODY KNOWS that!!! Everybody knows that they mentally F'd up slaves in order to control them (keep them from running away and making sure they worked hard). This isn't news... this is common knowledge. They publicly beat slaves in front of the rest to scare them. Again, This isn't news... So to sit here and play dumb like he was trying to say something other than that is foolish. I mean the very next thing he said was that we were in a mental prison... lawd!!!

  • RespectSelf

    look this is not for us to understand.... I'm bout to have a "break through" myself... like we can not be serious. This has to be joke. Are people really trying to ban his music because he was trying to say that slavery last 400 years because they mentally broke folks down???

  • SweetTEE

    There are like 5 major things going on right now that Kanye is distracting us from. He is definitely being used in some way. Hell, he is probably doing it willingly.

  • sunni_daze

    He did play himself I can't argue with that. Here they play the same 6 songs all day long (Drake 3 singles and Cardi B), it would be refreshing to hear something anything different.

  • Scromes1212

    Honestly it feels like the twilight zone smh This dude has always made positive uplifting music. His last song to play on the radio was ultralight beem ft Kirk Frankland. It was super positive and it was about God. And one comment can turn his people against him smh

  • SweetTEE

    I really dont think that Beasley Broadcast Group is owned by blacks. Furthermore, if he is so woke and thought provoking, he should be able to stand the heat like Malcolm X and others did before him. He doesnt need airplay..he's god.

  • RespectSelf

    Right! And his music was geared towards black folks too. And they same folks against still shopping at H&M and Walmart smh. I heard they trying to get Adidas to drop him too

  • Applebootay

    He said it because he doesn't know his history, he doesn't fugging read (by his own admission) and he's arrogant and he's off his meds....He said it and He meant it....ALBEIT...he didn't know what the fugg he was talking about but he meant that shat......Stop insulting folks intelligence by telling us we took it out of context...NOOOOOOO....you said some stoopid dumb shat, like most black americans who don't know their history. Just apologize and move on...I would respect him more if he just came back and said...."I apologize for my statements.....I'm not historically educated enough to be opening my mouth about shat....My bad....I'll do better next time....this whole...it was taken out of text is PR control. I'm not even going to discuss what mental slavery is...WE KNEW THAT ALREADY....He wasn't dropping new science like he said he was....NO ONE needs to be schooled on what mental slavery is or does....don't be mad at me for BELIEVING HIM....be mad at yourself that you have to reframe, rescript, twist and reflip everything he said because its too damn embarrassing and crazy to think that someone of his caliber is that fugging dumb.

  • Scromes1212

    Yep, but the CEO at adidas is smart. There company grew like almost 30% after Ye got there, he not letting Ye go. It's crazy how black people think sometimes. It's been so many times that different companies said foul sh*t about our community and we still rock with them and then turn around and turn our back on Ye smh like he is the enemy. Some of us still don't know who the enemy is

  • Applebootay

    Imma just copy and paste this into every comment. This is exactly what I just tried to say....but not as eloquently...LOL....If you look at the tape again...at the 4:29/4:30 mark, when Van is telling him how irresponsible he was being....if you look at how he kinda looked away with that I'm being scolded look on his face...that gave it all away. I just think that folks are just too embarrassed to admit that this fool is just that ignorant.

  • Fire & Ice

    You know blacks folks are very forgiving and sympathetic. Koonye better be glad he's not Jewish. He would be completely written off. Forget leaving Cali, he would have to leave the country.

  • Simone

    Ok...so what! If you love Kanye West's music, don't listen to 105.1 The Bounce. That's their loss. And Janelle Monáe makes no sense. The First Amendment protects freedom of speech. Whether or not it offends or so-called oppresses another has nothing to do with. Realistically, how is Kanye's opinion oppressing anyone? As a President Trump supporter, I hear celebrities bash President Trump regularly, I don't feel oppressed. I am living my life and Trump is doing a great job, so who cares what his detractors say. Oppressed?! No one controls your actions or destiny but you in this country. Toughen up folks! Victimhood is not an honor.

  • Kayke

    Yt folks have said this plenty ..... it being our choice and how they did us and favor. I agree with everything else you said. Folks obviously don't understand freedom to say whatever you want does not free what is said from rejection, ridicule or debate. It doesn't free the person who said it from the consequences of their words. Kanye has been in the yt world of people that get to dodge being held accountable thats y even after the TMz personal all showed signs of discomfort, it didn't register to him that he said something wrong or offensive. I hope he gets the help he needs, but regardless, I'll never support again.

  • RespectSelf

    So you think he was saying that they signed up for the slavery membership club when he said “When you hear about slavery for 400 years... For 400 years?!?! That sounds like a choice. Like you was there for 400 years and it’s all of y’all?!?! You know like... it’s like we’re... we’re mentally in prison”?????

    You are saying that he was trying to say that folks wanted to be there and could have got up and walked away??? That is what you took from him saying the above??? I'll admit he swerved a couple of feet to the left.... but yall took a full left turn and drove 300 miles completely in the wrong direction lol

  • RespectSelf

    If someone comments on this... they better come with the same correctness they expected from Kanye

  • EMILY POST

    Wow ? aren’t they just proving him right about how they don’t allow free thought.
    They banning Kanye because of his political affiliations.. which is illegal it’s not because of his dumb comments. He and so many other rappers have said some waayyy out stuff.
    Rappers calling “black women” bs and hoes no ban.

  • Cricket404

    Do they play R. Kelly? I don't understand why folks so concerned about what Kanye said about something that happened 400 years ago when black women are getting turned out right now.

  • SumthinSweeter

    *clapping*

  • Applebootay

    Like VAN on TMZ said...I don't think he was thinking at all!!! LOL...YES and YES....his azz said it...I'm not making it up....THESE ARE HIS WORDS NOT MINE........WHAT"S SO HARD TO BELIEVE ABOUT THAT? When Van was checking his azz, he would've cleared it up right there and then......when he got home and his handlers got in his azz....he back with the....outta context bull....Last time I checked he's NO Historian, .he doesn't read......and he's egotistical......he's just good at music....why are we putting him on a pedestal anyway? YES< He really really thought he was spitting knowledge....its incredulous that you have to dig so deep and spin into something else actually.......didn't you hear the part where he said "none of yall fought back?"MAAAAAnNNNNNN....I'm sorry but Kanye isn't the only one mentally enslaved...until you know who you are and where you come from...you are all mental slaves....

  • Jethro

    *adds 105.1 The Bounce to my playlist*

    They're not stopping him from thinking freely.

  • Applebootay

    Oh, im definitely going to keep listening to his music....I still rock the College Drop Out album...if it's good...I'm going to listen. I don't hate him, i have a lot of compassion...I just think he needs to stop talking thats all

  • BadAss Will

    I love Sandra but she dry rub she loves Trump and don't admit his lying ways. Also don't recognize Kanye insulting ways to African Americans ways. But she's a lesbian being discriminated against but she in hiding anyway.. thank God for other blogs

  • EMILY POST

    Any black person who departs from “Gang “ Democrat “ is automatically ridiculed, blacklisted and immediately slandered.
    Do I agree with Kanye on slavery no but if he is referring to black democrats Yes pretty much. He made some good points. Painting Trump as the boogey man and if not Trump then George Bush, McCain they control the narrative .
    I think about any black person who dare not to agree.. lol the liberal powers that be go at em hard.

  • EMILY POST

    Hell rappers can talk about murdering black men, rape, doing drugs, running trains on your daughter have them participating in orgies, pimping their women out but nooooo don’t wear a MAGA hat... you have done it now??

    lmaooo isn’t she in the music industry... why are y’all listening to those corporate controlled people. Nothing they do is free thinking... everything in the entertainment industry is orchestrated and planned.

  • Jethro

    Free speech/thought is a two-way multi-laned street.

  • Dun Dilly

    Ppl still listen to radio?

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    First of all, David Banner has been and is still looking for a way to become that next big, black leader in the community for a long time. It has really never happened for him and now I know why. I swear our people love to give our black celebrities a pass. I remember Kanye saying he wanted it to be cool for all people of all colors to call us kniggra. I was shocked to my core. But the world kept buying his shoes and wearing his clothes. I remember Kanye wearing the old southern flag, trying to make it cool. Should have been another sign, but no, people kept going to his concerts. I am not surprised by Kanye's antics because they are not new. He has been the same all of these years. WE, as a people are just now starting to see a pattern, but it's been there the whole time. No jew would have ever said their holocaust or genocide was a choice. NONE!!!! None would want you to call them out of their name to the same race that used those words to demoralize them as a cool thing. NONE!!! Only Kanye. There is nothing worst or more detrimental to a race then for one of its' own to agree to their oppression or suggest that it was all the oppressed's fault all along. I'm not letting Kanye slide with this. You guys can if you want to, but his words are too dangerous for this generation and the one that's coming up.

  • Miss Thang

    wtf is Kirk Frankland? lmao it's Franklin. and Kanye is problematic.

    There bus loads more musicans who should also banned from radio polluting the airwaves with bad music. l haven't checked for Kanye since the Drop Out Album his head got too big for me . I dont know whats really going down but feels like they're trying to distract the masses seems to be working.

  • RoniV

    I don't even want to hear him interviewed about music. All I want from him is a cup of Shut the F*&^ up!

  • Allihave2say

    It didn't register to Kanye because he has has delusions of grander. Even Van told him he's a genius so they keep inflating his ego and feeding his delusions so he never realizes the truth.

  • Allihave2say

    He is very ignorant. People assumed because his mother had a pedigree that Kanye is well read and versed into things that matter but he isn't. He wrote some catchy poetry and sampled it over music that real artistic geniuses wrote and got credit for the beats.

    An intelligent man will usually seek an intelligent wife. Kim is famous, lucky and her mother is smart. Kim is dumb as a rock. Every man before Kanye has stated this, including Prince and Steve Harvey.

    You know Dr. Dre is considered a genius yet most of the music he produced was recorded over beats that had already been familiar and successful in R&B, early rap like Sugar Hill and that era. Even in the movie straight out of Compton you see Dre studying the beats of other artists, now listen to the music he as produced. IJS

Kanye not even the worse one either. Its funny how you all allow Hollywood to pull your strings. Wow when you find out your spokesperson is just not that into you the way you thought... LOL You dont need to worry about my Melanin if you was ever checking for Kanye West this past decade what in the world is wrong with you. Trump support is the least of his worries.

He has always wrote uplifting music.... people AGAIN let the media think for them.. people need to grow the fuk up... when he was talking about slavery he meant they were mentally conditioned to automatically feel less than in every possible aspect... and screw tmz for picking and choosing what they wanted from that interview z

    See, this how Kanye is thrown into situations like this because we insert other people like R. Kelly or other rappers who I agree have promoted and sold negative lyrics!

    Hip Hop has brought gifts to our community and also detriment while a few really benefit, while we've lost a whole genre of music, R&B, another story, I know!!!

    Kanye chose HIS WORDING, and put a different ending to what many see as inflammatory and offensive statement!

    Because he added the ending, but at the same time, delivered what he intended to white folk what they think, "why don't they get over it, that happened so long ago!"

    I get it, and he shouldn't be boycotted because I still bump R. Kelly music, Kevin Spacey is still one of my favorite actors from the days of "The Usual Suspects" to House of Cards!

    Trump supports are free to vote or give their support because we need to do for ourselves, like we do! More Black Women have started businesses than any other group, FACT!

    In this country, we can make it, but there are many who will fall through the cracks, or attend schools with poor teachers, outdated books or deficient technology, experience generational poverty just like poor white people!

    We need to stand for those who can't stand, no one does anything ALL BY THEMSELVES!

    We live in a world of a tale of two cities (second chances for whites, a health crisis instead of a drug addiction epidemic like crack!

    Second chances so they can vote, attend college, get federal grants and housing, while we get to manufacture just about everything or do construction for free with mandatory sentencing laws!

    Bad schools as our launching pad to the industrialized prison complex! But, we could help out` by just not littering, defacing where we have to live, no excuse for this!

    So, 400 hundred years later, SOME OR MANY OF US ARE STILL OPPRESSED!

    A long thread, but truth be told...at least my version of it!

    A long thread, but truth be told...at least my version of it!

    Rihanna thought she was about that life and wasnt.

  • Goodii2Shoes

    Yes.&according to the police report,,,, she stopped fronting like she was top -flite security, managed to get her seat belt back on while calling jen's skankiness & pretending to demand law enforcement's assistance.(Bc she knows spying on private calls should /can get her a beatdown or worse.) Rihanna is a lowlife immigrant who was not only wasting American taxpayer money by calling for law enforcement that nite, but also deserved what she got & more for the "spying "& telecommunications interference their little crew's become so good at since Chris gave her what she had coming. I bet that bxtch, nor any of the nxggxs that did that dumb shxt & told her to confront him, will admit to another mf that they've been spying on their phones again tho. Not in person, & not in arms reach for sure.

    Kanye is a college dropout, addict. E.g. he was never a spokesperson for anything I'm vested in. & Ive never "been checking for" his music/him lol. The melanin deficient hyped him into believing he was genius & began their "checking for him" as he became their new slave.

  • Goodii2Shoes

    if the music industry or any corporate controlled entity orchestrates a positive uplifting /enrichment of people based on humane intentions breeding an end of oppression for a community & productive society, THAT iS wtf the ppl should listen to.! #LetThemOrchestrate free thinking devoted to alleviating oppression. Or should media be used to breed hate & oppression

  • EMILY POST

    Is that what they are doing really alleviating Oppression.... Or sending out an agenda? LMAOO at Orchestrating free thinking... thats hilarious.

  • YouWontSayItButIWill

    Just sad....I didn't even see this interview.

  • CocoBabe88

    I absolutely loathe Kanye and his wife. But he is absolutely right about everything he’s said and I agree with him. Most people don’t even know wtf Kanye is talking about and wouldn’t even understand why slavery actually was a choice if it was told to them, because they’re so indoctrinated and brainwashed by liberal propaganda and bias media agenda. You have to have the mind to know the truth when it’s given to you to actually be able to accept it.

  • Not a Housewife & Neither RU

    I knew I could count on Sandra for the spin.... "taken out of context". Not so much dear, he said those words. Now did he mean to say it the way he said it, no he didn't, but free thinkers should be articulate when going on national television or has that gone out the window too since your president got elected?

    No One Showed Up To Kanye West’s 2XU Event In Australia

    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/63c94803aae8fc4d5b67ec2307181be87dc4169614be1937a04d54d929085248.jpg

    A launch for new product by Kanye West flopped in Australia.

    By Shirley Ju | 13 hrs

    Can’t win ‘em all.

    Kanye West has single-handedly become the topic of interest (or hate) among not only the hip-hop community but society as a whole.

    With his erratic tweets and controversial stances with President Trump, Ye continues to lose fans at an exponential rate.

    Now, early Saturday morning at 9 a.m. sharp, Kanye’s most recent collaboration with Australian sportswear brand 2XU went on sale.

    The result? An empty flagship store on Oxford St, Paddington.

    I love David Banner, what he said was absolutely correct.

  • Alexis Carson

    I agree. And when all this boils over and Kanye gets back to being himself and making good music again.. they bet not dare play his music then either. Dont take it back. People have no loyalty these days. They will love you and put you on a pedestal but the moment you say or do one thing wrong they will throw you away. As if half these people have never said or done anything wrong themselves. Pick a side people and STICK TO THAT SIDE. Dont flip flop.

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    But let you tell it because of Kanye black men are now under his influence!

  • the watcher

    uncle (tomye) west.worlds were NOT taken out of content. true he has the right to say whatever he wants as this is a free country. but i also have the right to boycott and not support him if i choose to. and as far as a free thinker who's really trying to bring light to social injustice the name colin kaepernick comes to mind. UNCLE TOMYE DOESN'T care about black people he cares about the rating for his porn star wife reality tv show.

  • the watcher

    Did the republican's make you say that? i guess that president obama was never bashed either? yeah he was , but he was just too classy of a man to reacted like the childish kid we have in the white house now. as a matter of fact your president( trumpy)loves to talk about the media and Fake news, but it was this very same guy (trumpy)who started this whole Fake news stuff with the birther movement about president obama. i believe the smartest thing you have ever said was ....No one controls your actions or destiny but you in this country. NOT A DEMOCRAT OR REPUBLICAN OR A INDEPENDENT but you!!!

  • the watcher

    also if uncle tom ye west would have said that he supports Colin Kaepernick would he still be consider a free thinker or would your president trumpy bash him too like hes doing kapernick for being a free thinker?

    I'm done arguing and debating over what amounts to a promotional stunt for his album.
