Kanye West spoke candidly about the backlash he has received for supporting US President Donald Trump as he compared it to life as a black man before he became famous.

The article goes on to state the following:

Though he told writer Christina Binkley he is not registered to vote and doesn’t follow politics, he said:  ‘I’m a black guy with a red [MAGA] hat, can you imagine?’

The report states that Kanye expressed his frustrations over the backlash received from both his fans and critics, as they’ve made assumptions about him due to race, education, and his life as a rapper.

“I’m a black guy with a red [MAGA] hat, can you imagine? …It reminded me of how I felt as a black guy before I was famous, when I would walk in a restaurant and people would look at you like you were going to steal something. ‘This is your place, Ye, don’t talk about apparel. This is your place, Ye, you’re black, so you’re a Democrat,’ ” he said in the WSJ interview.

West has said that, although he is not registered to vote, if he had been registered in 2016, he would’ve voted for Trump.

Having money and celebrity hadn’t protected him, Brinkley wrote in the WSJ article.

“Everything is about putting people in their place. Classism, protectionism—not just racism,” he said one evening. “Classism is like living on a bookshelf. The more money you have, the higher you go. And you get to the top and look over and what do you see? Fear.”
