If the implication is he'll take black votes away from Democrats, R12, you don't have much respect for black voters or their ability to vote for what is best for their futures. Kanye West doesn't worry me except for the sideshow he will create... and that will be Trump's problems. In his world, they're that version of in a friendship.

R22 - that is a hysterical reaction here. Firstly, younger voters are overwhelmingly progressive and Kanye's embrace of libertarian and conservative politics (not to mention his bizarre affection for Trump) will make him toxic to most younger voters. People are capable of liking his music and still finding him, personally, a bit of a joke. Secondly, if there's one thing black voters are known for it is pragmatism. Black voters are the single most dependable demographic group for the Dems, but they are also very pragmatic. It's partly whey Hillary had their initial support in the 2008 primary. Obama didn't have widespread black voter support until he started winning primaries and proving to black voters that he could actually win the general.
Maybe if you actually knew anyone under 70 or darker than eggshell you might not have such a hysterical reaction. But, either way, relax, even if this moron decides to actually run, he won't have any impact.

I can't imagine Kris is pleased about this. This kind of stunt could actually damage the Kardashian brand irreparably. Their reality show, like all others, is already going to be handicapped by Covid and if Kanye is serious about this and ends up helping Trump get reelected inadvertently, there's no rebounding from that for a large majority of their "fans". Even the idiots that would consider voting for this douche probably wouldn't want to see Trump win a second term. The Kardashian name will be toast if this happens and deservedly so.

I'm trying not to worry. If he gets onto the ballot in swing states, that could be disastrous. Obviously it would take more from Biden than Trump. But I'm not sure i can see him sustaining a halfway serious campaign to November, and people won't write him in if it peters out. While I can totally believe Trump is behind this, maybe he's not--maybe it's just Kanye's narcissism and he actually does want to win. In which case he could at least damage Trump a tiny bit if he is critical of both his opponents. His comments might remind potential voters that, oh yeah, Trump is worse on X issue and Kanye has no actual chance so maybe I should go back to Biden like an adult...or maybe that's my wishful thinking. Best case scenario Kanye loses interest in seriously campaigning (if he's even serious right now).
|by Anonymous||reply 161||07/04/2020|
The media won't be as kind to Kanye as they were to Stein or Trump or Sanders, and Kanye is crazy and not very bright, so I don't think he's much to worry about.
If the media decides it would be more profitable for them to bolster Kanye, though, then we're in trouble.

Kim will never be First Lady because he hasn't got a chance in hell of winning. The die hard Trumpers will never vote for him and moderates and true progressives will never vote for him either because they will correctly identify him as a spoiler to Biden's chances. He may pick off a few voters disenchanted with Trump, but who were never n board with Biden, but I suspect he will either appeal mostly to low information non-voters or younger first-time voters who would otherwise be in the Biden column, but on a lark vote for Kanye without weighing the consequences. Either way, it will not end up with him being president and it may only serve to benefit Trump.

I actually do think that Kanye is egotistical enough, like his good buddy Trump, to actually think he could be president despite zero political cred and he's probably delusional enough to think he could stand a chance of winning. Maybe not in this cycle, but he's hardwired the same way Trump is with an arrogant God complex and fame whore DNA, this won't be the last election cycle he will throw his hat in the ring for. Even if Biden wins, we'll likely see this again from him in 2024.

r176, nobody thinks OJ is innocent. Black people who cheered his acquittal were simply glad to see a black man get away with murder for once. Few believe or supports Bill Cosby, either, especially since at the same time that he was secretly drugging and raping women he was publicly scolding and shaming the black community for its "failure" to be as upstanding and respectable as Bill Cosby.
But none of that has anything to do with the price of tea in china, anyway. Deciding you'll continue to fangurl some entertainer despite his obvious criminality is a very low-stakes decision; ultimately, the entertainer's fate, good or bad, won't affect your life in any way.. Helping to elect a complete disaster as POTUS is different story. Black voters are not going to do anything that might help keep Biden out of office and give Trump (or Kanye himself for that matter) another term. (And no, Twitter likes don't translate into votes; just ask Bernie.)

Anyone relying on social media for a clue into the thoughts of given population is an idiot or a troll or both. If you legitimately believe this crap and aren't a troll, you need to remember that
(A) black voters are more pragmatic than to vote for someone just because they're black -- ask Obama, Kamala Harris, Ben Carson, Herman Caine, and Al Sharpton;
(B) black people by and large don't support Kanye or take him seriously, and they don't respect the Kardashians -- if you knew any black people in [bold]real life[/bold], you'd know this;
(C) political idea's expressed on social media are practically worthless because their either expressed by people who are too young (e.g., edgy 15 year old with more ideas than sense) or lazy to vote;
(D) there's an incredible amount of manipulation on SM from Russian trolls pretending to be Americans and specifically black Americans.

This whole thing is tragic.
