Hip Hop Radio Station Wants to Silence Kanye After Making Controversial Remarks on Slavery

Published

Detroit hip hop station 105.1 The Bounce just doesn’t know what to do about infamous rapper Kanye West, a man who has made a genuine splash on the culture front over the last several weeks after coming out in support of President Donald Trump.

However, according to The Bounce, the problem isn’t that Kanye likes the president or that he posts pictures in a MAGA hat on his social media.

No, they have a problem with his comments on slavery. In fact, they so disliked what he had to say on the topic they banned him from the station.

So what was it, exactly, that West said that has everyone so up in arms?

“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? It’s like we’re mentally in prison.”

Two DJs, BiGG and Shay Shay, recently posted on Facebook that this particular mark was the straw that broke the camel’s back:

We feel like Kanye has gone too far with his latest statement declaring that “slavery was a choice.” We are over it. We don’t want to hear Kanye’s music, we don’t want to play Kanye on our show, we don’t want to talk about Kanye anymore. So we are taking a stand and we aren’t playing his music anymore; we just are refusing to give him a platform.

On Wednesday, when Shay Shay was asked how the DJs would deal with airplay of West, she said she was tired of listening to him. Shay Shay also commented on West asserting that Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X were “too far in the past and not relatable.” She said, “As an educator, as someone who works with young kids … he has a huge platform, OK? I just think that’s reckless. I think when you have such a huge platform like that, to use it in a reckless way, I mean, you’re basically saying history is irrelevant.”

Bigg told The Detroit News that the response from fans of the station to West’s remarks was so massive that the station’s new program director, John Candelaria, approved the ban. Biggs stated, “In my 20-year radio career, this is one of the largest responses I’ve ever seen; the largest reaction on The Bounce, too. It’s very overwhelming right now. I’m just trying to keep up. Lots of people in support, but the people that aren’t are taking personal jabs. Weird.”

It seems, at least on the surface, that these folks are taking Kanye’s comment out of context and missing the point of what he’s saying.

While it can’t be said for sure, it certainly appears that what West is discussing here is the victim mentality that is so rampant in our culture this day and age, simply stating that so many folks are focused on making up for slavery — which was a horrendous evil — which happened so long ago that they’re allowing themselves to become perpetual victims that are stuck in that way of thinking.

It doesn’t appear that he’s trying to say that the slavery that happened hundreds of years ago was a choice by the victims of this vile practice, but that those who remain hung up on it today are choosing to be enslaved by defeat in their minds.

Then again, maybe he just made a goofy statement to get attention. Anything is possible.

Michael Moore Lashes Out At Joe Biden For Reaching Out To ‘White Racist Redneck Votes In Michigan’

Michael Moore

So it seems that, despite the fact he’ll be casting his vote for Joe Biden in November, radical leftist filmmaker — a term that should be used very loosely — Michael Moore is not exactly a big fan of the crusty, old white fellow’s election behavior. In fact, over the weekend, Biden accepted the endorsement of former Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder, a member of the GOP, a move which left Moore extremely disappointed and upset with the former vice president. Enough so that he actually scolded him for trying to get “white racist redneck votes in Michigan.” via Daily Wire: “The Biden campaign, in an effort to convince Flint voters to stay home on Nov 3 and lose Michigan again, happily announced & embraced the endorsement of former Gov. Rick Snyder — the man who poisoned Flint’s water. 10,000 children [with] permanent brain damage,” Michael Moore tweeted. “Countless dead. Shame!” “So the Biden campaign thought getting a few more White racist redneck votes in Michigan was more important than getting the Black vote in Flint?” he later added. “Better to embrace the mass-poisoning Republican ex-Governor than worry about ‘those Black people?’ Are u nuts? Apologize & retract NOW.” https://twitter.com/MMFlint/status/1302276793492221953 https://twitter.com/MMFlint/status/1302305541209894913 https://twitter.com/MMFlint/status/1302314275567009794 Ever since President Donald Trump’s rousing performance at the RNC, Moore has been warning Democrats not to get complacent. In late August, he shared a poll from Michigan that had Trump besting Biden by 2 points (47% to 45%), citing it as evidence that Democrats are not sounding the alarm enough. “Someone needs to pull the fire alarm NOW. Where are the stories about Trump gaining on Biden?” Moore said on Twitter. “Below’s a poll from Fri in Michigan. Last week Trump pulled within 4 pts of Biden. Now in one poll Trump is AHEAD of Biden in MI…

Terry Crews Comments On Racist Comments Made By Nick Cannon: I Told Ya So

Published

Actor Terry Crews is slowly, but surely, becoming a conservative hero as he continues to take the Black Lives Matter movement and the political correctness of the progressive movement, refusing to give in to the madness and hatred being spewed out on the left. Crews has stated time and again that he’s not going to hate on white people, which is really what’s going on beneath the veneer of social justice BLM hides behind. It’s a refreshing stance to see these days to be sure. Recently, actor and TV host Nick Cannon was booted from ViaCom after making anti-Semitic and anti-white comments during a radio show. Crews has now responded to those comments and he couldn’t be more right. via The Daily Wire: “We have to include this white voice, this Hispanic voice, this Asian voice. We have to include it RIGHT NOW, because if we don’t […] it’s going to slip into something we are really not prepared for,” Crews posted, quoting himself. “Terry Crews ‘THE TALK interview’ June 16th, 2020,’” he added. https://twitter.com/terrycrews/status/1283280895403864064 In reaction to Crews’ pointed tweet, one Twitter user told the actor “no black person” will have his back: “You going so hard against Nick Cannon, but when you fall, NO BLACK PERSON will have your back. Watch.” “When I was young, I was never afraid of the KKK,” Crews responded. “It was people like you. The threats, the intimidation, discouraging free thought, and ‘the insult of acting white.’ My heart breaks because your behavior only reveals you don’t know how powerful you are.” https://twitter.com/terrycrews/status/1283293611208183808 Just to give you a little context for how dedicated Crews is to his position and how much wisdom and truth this man has, one of his tweets from the month of June says, “Defeating White Supremacy without White people…
