Just Like Trump, Kanye West Is Ignorant – Ta-Nehisi Coates

American author,

Ta-Nehisi Coates blasted in a lengthy new essay for The Atlantic, accusing him of being “shockingly ignorant” and for practicing “white freedom.”

“Like Trump, West is shockingly ignorant,” writes Coates, blasting the rapper for his false assertion that Chicago is “the murder capital of the world.”

“West calls his struggle the right to be a ‘free thinker,’ and he is, indeed, championing a kind of freedom — a white freedom,” Coates continued, before going on to describe his definition of “white freedom.”

“Freedom without consequence, freedom without criticism, freedom to be proud and ignorant; freedom to profit off a people in one moment and abandon them in the next; a Stand Your Ground freedom, freedom without responsibility, without hard memory; a Monticello without slavery, a Confederate freedom, the freedom of John C. Calhoun, not the freedom of Harriet Tubman.”

Coates then insisted that West’s endorsement of Donal Trump was a betrayal of his fans and that his ignorance over matters like whether slavery was a “choice” could not be excused given the power of his platform.

“It is often easier to choose the path of self-destruction when you don’t consider who you are taking along for the ride,” writes Coates.
