Ment Nelson’s Painting Perfectly Captures Kanye West’s Uncle Tom Spirit

Uncle Tom

“Ment Nelson watched the scene unfold in a YouTube clip on his phone – a rapper professing his love for the president in the Oval Office – and wanted to document the moment from the October meeting forever.

In his bedroom, Nelson began to draw and then paint and soon the Beaufort native and artist had produced a watercolor showing a grinning Kanye West with a red cap bearing the “Make America Great Again” slogan of Donald Trump`s presidential campaign. Opposite West, lipstick is seen on the cheek of a frowning Trump.”

Jim Carrey isn`t the only artist expressing his loathing of Trump via his art, Ment Nelson has produced a watercolor depicting Kanye West with an Uncle Tom Grin and a frowning Donald Trump with a lipstick kiss on his orange cheek.

I`m not an artist and I can barely draw a human stick figure, but I recognize great art when I see it, and Nelson`s watercolor painting is a masterpiece.

How the mighty have fallen, Kanye West is a rapper, producer, fashion designer and entrepreneur, and he was a role model for blacks and all people of color.

Rappers are a symbol and expression of African American vitality; they are the rock stars of our generation, as they prowl the stage, rapping truth to power. Rappers ooze masculinity and confidence, as they demonstrate you don`t have to be subservient to the white power structure. For one of the kings of rap to turn into a Trump-kissing Uncle Tom house Negro is a shame and an affront to the black community.

West`s Uncle Tom grin perfectly captures his servile and submissive nature in the presence of white authority, and Trump`s frown perfectly captures his disgust at being embraced by a black man.

Trump doesn`t mind a black man shucking and jiving, but the hug crossed a red line. Trump doesn`t mind West`s support, he falsely believes it will improve his standing in the black community, but he`s still a Negro, and a Negro should never make the mistake of embracing his superior.

Kanye West is an affront to the black community in particular, and to humanity in general. Kudos to Nelson for reminding us that West is trash.

The Kanye West Donald Trump Show Was An Abomination

“The world is still talking about Kanye West`s bizarre lunch with President Donald Trump – including White House staffers. And many of them are feeling hugely embarrassed by the president`s Oval Office meeting with the rap star, New York Times White House correspondent Maggie Haberman told CNN on Friday.

`If you look [at the president`s] face as Kanye West was doing, essentially, his filibuster standing in front of the Resolute Desk, [Trump] looks speechless and confused, right. [He`s] uncertain quite what to do with this,` Haberman said.”

Huffington Post

In 1972, two days after the Republicans nominated Richard Nixon, Sammy Davis Jr. embraced the presidential candidate while on stage at a Republican Youth Rally.

In the pre-Internet age the photo of Davis hugging Nixon went viral, and the entertainer instantly became anathema in the black community.

The Nixon/Davis embrace is nothing compared to Kanye West`s surreal Oval Office meeting with Trump.

The rap star, wearing a Make America Great Again hat, held forth for almost ten minutes, in a stream-of-consciousness rant that wouldn`t be out of place in a mental asylum, but was totally unbecoming in the Oval Office.

Trump should fire Jared Kushner and anybody else responsible for this fiasco, it was a humiliation for Trump and an embarrassment for America.

In his wide-ranging one-sided conversation Kanye said he was misdiagnosed with bipolar disorder and was simply sleep-deprived. I`m not a psychiatrist and I don`t play one on TV, but my diagnosis is that Kanye is batshit crazy. I`ve gone without sleep for 24-hours on more than one occasion, but sleep deprivation never made me act like I was off my rocker.

At the end of Kanye`s profanity-laden pontification, all Trump could manage to say was “that was pretty impressive. That was quite something.” No shit! That was something that should never have been allowed to take place in the Oval Office.

Kanye ended his performance by warmly hugging Trump, probably the worst moment in the racist and germaphobe president`s life.

I hope all of America watched that grotesque display, and will express their displeasure and disgust November 6, 2018.

Diamond and Silk’s Coonery and Buffoonery Resonates With Trump’s Racist Base

Lynnette “Diamond” Hardaway and Rochelle “Silk” Richardson known as “Diamond and Silk” are two of President Donald Trump`s most ardent African American supporters.

They take “coonery and buffoonery” to an absurd level, and their videos resonate with Trump`s racist base for the same reason that minstrel shows were very popular in the South in the early 19th century.

I can imagine white Trump supporters watching a Diamond and Silk video, laughing at their antics, and wondering why all black people can`t be hoodwinked so easily.

It sickens me that two black women shucking and jiving in support of a blatantly racist president garner millions of views on YouTube.

But YouTube and Facebook shouldn`t take any measures to censor or demonetize their videos. Coonery and buffoonery isn`t hate speech, and Diamond and Silk videos are protected free speech.

Facebook recently classified the videos produced by Diamond and Silk as “unsafe to the community,” and that had the practical effect of making their content on Facebook more difficult to access.

Their videos are an affront to the black race, and indeed all of humanity, but as I have previously stated their content shouldn`t be censored or restricted.

In the Facebook community there is enough bandwidth for pages that celebrate cats, promote human rights, defend liberty, advocate on the behalf of gays, lesbians and other minorities, and yes there is even space for pages where Uncle Toms can indulge in their coonery.
