Adidas backs Kanye West after slavery comments

Donald Trump Kanye West

African American approval ratings of President Donald Trump have almost doubled since rapper Kanye West took to Twitter to express his support for the president, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll.

"Kanye has been, and is, a very important part of our strategy and has been a fantastic creator", Rorsted said in an interview on Bloomberg TV. I understand they were going through some things, but if it's family, you're not going to miss a wedding.

"TMZ knows they shouldn't be doing that s**t, man", he said.

"You don't have to agree with Trump but the mob can't make me not love him", West wrote in another tweet later that day.

Adidas bosses are standing by Kanye West and will not drop his Yeezy brand after his controversial comments calling slavery "a choice".

'Kanye's a different guy, ' the former safety said ...

In another Trumpian touch, West later took to Twitter to criticize media coverage of his remarks, saying he meant "we can't be mentally imprisoned for another 400 years". "So, prison is something that unites us as one race".

Some of those tweets have since been deleted. "If they're an activist in a way that brings attention to something that moves the world forward, even if there's controversy at that moment, we're really interested in those athletes because I think it represents the world today". "Do you but remember the life that I live is as a real person". As someone who survived suicide and now battles a chronic mental illness, there was only so much I could find amusing, and this situation walks a thin line between humorous and sad.

In honor of Mental Health Awareness Month, I believe it's the flawless time to address Kanye West's recent behavior.

Feminist writer Roxane Gay tweeted, "I don't have the energy for nonsense but Kanye saying slavery was a choice reiterates my previous statements about how unsafe his trite, shallow ramblings are". Then in the most recent clip, he blasted Kanye for supporting Donald Trump and using the term "free thought" to justify it.

Despite the backlash among liberals, it's clear that Kanye West is slowly beginning to win more black support for President Trump.

"I actually don't think you're thinking anything", Lathan said.

"The statement was an example of free thought".
