    I can't help but respect the guy for his courage, conviction, and independence.

    "Because at that point, if I’m afraid to be me, I’m no longer Ye. That’s what makes Ye.”

    During an appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” Thursday night, Kanye West defended his decision to support Donald Trump during the 2016 presidential election, and said he would not be “bullied” by those on the left.

    “Just as a musician, African-American, guy out in Hollywood, all these different things, you know, everyone around me tried to pick my candidate for me,” the Chicago rapper told Kimmel. "And then told me every time I said I liked Trump that I couldn’t say it out loud or my career would be over; I’d get kicked out of the black community because blacks -- we’re supposed to have a monolithic thought, we can only, like, we can only be Democrats and all.”

    West said it took more than a year before he gained the “confidence to stand up” and publicly wear Trump’s signature “Make America Great Again” hat – which caused an uproar from many of his fans back in April.

    “I didn’t have the confidence to take on the world and the possible backlash and it took me a year and a half to have the confidence to stand up and put on the hat no matter what the consequences were,” West explained.

    “And what it represented to me is not about policies -- because I’m not a politician like that. But it represented overcoming fear and doing what you felt, no matter what anyone said, in saying, you can’t bully me. Liberals can’t bully me, news can’t bully me, the hip-hop community, they can’t bully me.

    "Because at that point, if I’m afraid to be me, I’m no longer Ye. That’s what makes Ye.”

    Nothing unusual here.

    People that wingers loathed can become winger heroes by supporting Dear Leader.

    Ho-hum.

    You see nothing admirable in Kanye's quote "if I’m afraid to be me, I’m no longer Ye. That’s what makes Ye.”

    No surprise. Your loss.

    Just food for thought, the only "Make America Great Again" hats I have seen in NYC were all worn by African Americans.

    But shhhhhhhhhhhhh........we are not supposed to talk about that.

    Democrats can't comprehend that, if you have ever watched Star Trek, Democrats are like The Borg, no independent thought allowed.

    Brilliant retort, next time just go with "I know you are but what I am". We all know it's the extent of your intellectual prowess.

    See my link above. Kimmel asked Kanye what Trump has done for black people and Kanye was stumped.

    Yes, I see that. Leave it to the biggest race baiter to uphold someone (black or white) who stumps for Trump. Leave it to an attention whore like Kayne West to rally around Barbella's "Favorite" President. She is upholding him while searching the net for Blacks acting Bad articles to post.
