AceShowbiz - Kanye West continues making headlines with his controversial statement. This time, the rapper and hip-hop mogul became a hot topic after claiming that Democrats had "brainwashed" black people into voting for them and forced them to "abort their children" during an interview with Big Boy.
He said in the interview, "Democrats had us voting for Democrats with food stamps for years, bro. … Guns in the 80s, taking the fathers out the home, Plan B, lowering our votes, making us abort our children," Kanye said, before adding, "We're brainwashed out here, bro. Come on, man. This is a free man talking."
Many people naturally sounded off after listening to the interview, including Trevor Noah who said that he was "like, are you s***ting me? Like, of all people, I'm not saying everything he's saying is wrong, but you are gonna say it?" He added, "This is what I don't like, is when Kanye West and people like him will say, 'Black people in America have been brainwashed...into voting for the Democrats, believing that they're victims, but we're not victims! We can vote for Republican! We can do whatever we want!' "
"Then I'm like, OK, let me get this straight: you're saying that every black person in America is brainwashed? You're saying that seventy, eighty percent of black people who are voting for Democrats, they're brainwashed?" he continued, before suggesting that Kanye could say that because he wasn't affected to the Republican policies.
Not stopping there, Trevor went on addressing Kanye's claims that Democrats forced black women to abort their children. "I refuse to live in a world where I go, 'Black women have been brainwashed.' No I don't think black women in America have been or can be brainwashed. I think, if anything, black women in America have the least leeway when it comes to messing around with their vote," he said, pointing out all the suffering that black women have to face after giving birth. Thus, voting for the right political party is such a huge deal for them.
"As a black woman, I cannot afford to mess around with this vote," he said. "That, to me, is not a brainwashed person. That's not a victim."
Kanye has yet to respond to Trevor.
