Kanye West celebrated the Fourth of July this weekend by announcing on social media that he is running for president.
This Kanye West thing is an intentional distraction from the racial reckoning Black people are having in America. West is a slavery-denying, proud Republican friend of racist Donald Trump and the self-hating Candace Owens.
West hasn’t even filled out the FEC paperwork required to run as an independent candidate. To get on a state’s ballot, there are requirements that must be met, often including gathering signatures. There is no evidence that West has actually started to do this.
Like most things in his life, this is a publicity stunt. And the media is giving it the attention West wants. But you shouldn’t! And you should encourage others not to as well!
While West running for president is ‘interesting’ to say the least, it splits the needed votes to get Trump out of office. There’s too much on the line to let this clown get us off course! A vote for Kanye is an indirect vote for Trump.
