Kanye West claims that black Americans are & # 39; brainwashed & # 39; to vote for the Democratic Party, despite the fact that they promote policies that may be harmful to them.
The controversial rapper, 42, made the statement in one explosive interview with radio presenter Big Boy on Friday while promoting his new album with a Christian theme, Jesus Is King.
When asked about his support for President Donald Trump, West explained that he does not believe it is smart for black Americans to vote for Democrats, and claim: “You have fairly easy control when they know everyone is blue becomes [democrat]. If you go to a white [person] bar, you will hear people talking. Independent, you will hear people talking. Democrat, you will hear people talking. Republican & # 39 ;.
In the 2016 presidential election, 88% of black Americans voted for democrat, while only 8% of the same demographic republican voted.
West then lashed out at Democratic legislators and said: & # 39; & # 39; We [black Americans] are brainwashed here, man. Come on man. This is a free man who talks.
& # 39; For years, Democrats have allowed us to vote for Democrats with food stamps. What are you talking about in the 1980s, getting the fathers out of the house, Plan B, lowering our voices, letting us abort children. & # 39;

West is notorious for his support for Trump last year, visiting the Republican President at the White House and putting on a red Make America Great Again cap.
When asked if he tacitly endorsed racism with his support for Trump, West turned the question around and said: & # 39; The most racist anyone can tell me is that I have to choose something based on my race & # 39; .
West also clarified in the interview that he would not tell any black American how to vote, bizarre with the comment: & # 39; & # 39; I tell no one not to vote for democrat, I love Obama, I love lemonade, I love Wingstop, I love polo & # 39; s, I love Jordans & # 39 ;.
West then continued with democratic legislators and said: & # 39; & # 39; We are [black Americans] brainwashed here, man. Come on man. This is a free man who talks. & # 39;
Elsewhere in the interview, the Gold Digger hit maker insisted he wasn't worried about & # 39; canceled & # 39; because of his controversial opinions.
The born-again Christian commented: & I am only afraid of my father, God. I've been 15 years. I tell you that God shows you that you can have your own thoughts, bro. I was canceled before there was a culture for canceling. "
West also expressed his contempt for social media, despite being married to Kim Kardashain – one of Instagram & # 39; s most popular stars.
& # 39; Instagram makes sense … social media [do] more to hurt families and families are the key to health, & # 39; he explained.
His interview with Big Boy was only the last in a series of interviews that West held last week.

Talk to Zane Lowe Beats 1 on Friday, West revealed that he asked producers to abstain from sex while they were working on his new religious album.
& # 39; There were times when I asked people not to have premarital sex while working on the album, & # 39; Kanye revealed
& # 39; I know it is one where The Shade Room will look like: & # 39; What do you mean, don't you have premarital sex? You better turn on that Meg Thee Stallion. & # 39; But seriously, there have been times when I went to see people who worked on other projects and said: & # 39; Could you just work and concentrate on this? & # 39;
In the interview with the bomb, he also remembered an addiction to pornography that he says started when he came across a copy of Playboy as a child.
& # 39; Playboy was my gateway to full porn addiction. My father had left out a Playboy at the age of five, and it has influenced almost every choice I've made for the rest of my life from the age of five to now, because I had to kick the habit, "he revealed.
