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.

Sarah Sanders Pressed to Resign or Be Fired by CNN Analyst

You know that things are looking desperate when television entertainers start telling the White House who to hire and fire.

Published

on

The media is having a heyday with the Mueller report, warping and wilting the 400+ pages to match whichever narrative they see fit. The President continues to tout the idea of “total exoneration”, complete with his “no obstruction” line, but even the most magnanimous of “news” providers are cautioning that this is likely an erroneous or misleading statement.  The Mueller report specifically and unequivocally states otherwise, but we aren’t talking about guilt anymore…we’re talking about political culpability. In that context, President Trump’s flippant, hand-wringing responses are more for the court of public opinion than the actual courts, and all of this is in response to the hyperbolic and partisan media hackery that we’ve been subjected to over the course of the last 12 hours, nay, the last 22 months. And the world of infotainment isn’t done yet, either, as CNN analysts are now making suggestions as to how Trump should rearrange his staff based on their findings in the Mueller report itself. CNN political analyst April Ryan called for the firing of White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders on Thursday, claiming Sanders “lied” to the media following the release of the Mueller report. In May 2017, following the turbulent firing of FBI Director James Comey, Sanders told reporters that “countless” FBI agents had lost confidence in Comey despite one reporter’s assertion that the “vast majority” of them supported his leadership. According to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s office, Sanders told investigators her claim was a “slip of the tongue” and was “in the heat of the moment,” admitting that it was not founded on anything. The White House’s current culture of upheaval notwithstanding, April Ryan’s understanding of the situation on Pennsylvania Avenue can only be interpreted through the lens of her position within the Washington infotainment industry, and is not indicate of…

According to TMZ, President Trump is Now Homophobic

Maybe TMZ should stick to covering which sports star is bedding which Kardashian this week, and leave the politics to the professionals.

If you’re looking for a lesson in character assassination, the mainstream media is a willing and powerful mentor. This “infotainment” industry has been clawing at the door, so to speak, when it comes to Donald Trump’s personal beliefs.  They’ve imbued every syllable ever spoken by the President on the subject of immigration with some form of racist connotation, in an attempt to flood the media landscape with doubt and anger. It’s fear mongering, no doubt, but in a world dominated by social media’s “resistance” schtick, this is the sort of anger-fuel that sells. TMZ is no stranger to this, making their bread and butter by proposing scandalous and salacious rumors about The Kardashians for years.  Now, as they move into politics, (something no one asked for), they are bringing the same tabloid terror to the proceedings. For instance, they’ve already assumed that President Trump will let his alleged inner homophobic thoughts loose should he go head to head with 2020 democratic candidate Pete Buttigieg. Monday on “TMZ Live” founder Harvey Levin asked South Bend, IN Mayor Pete Buttigieg, a 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful, what he will do when President Donald Trump “absolutely, no doubt” makes homophobia part of his campaign against Buttigieg if he secures the Democratic nomination. Levin said, “If you end up going head to head with Donald Trump, you are an openly gay man and I have absolutely no doubt in my mind given Donald Trump’s history that the campaign will get homophobic in some way. How are you going to deal with that? Buttigieg answered, “I’m kinda used to that by now. I’m from Indiana. I’m gay as a—I don’t know, think of something really gay, and that is how gay I am. So I’m used to bullying.” There has been no evidence presented of this hateful personality trait…
