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.

Kanye West Felt Like Superman When He Put On a MAGA Hat But He Looked Like an Uncle Tom

“There was something about putting this hat on that made me feel like Superman.”

Kanye West

This was one of the dozen insane comments that the rapper made as part of an extended soliloquy during his infamous Oval Office meeting with Donald Trump.

I`m a Latino and if I donned a “Make America Great Again” hat I wouldn`t feel like a superhero, far from it. I would feel like a traitor to my community, considering Trump made dozens of disparaging remarks about Mexican migrants and Mexican-American citizens during his presidential campaign and during his tenure as president.

West is a traitor to his race, he might as well have put on a KKK pointed hat. Trump referred to African nations as “shithole countries,” and he has gone out of his way to mock and ridicule prominent African-Americans.

The phrase “Make America Great Again” implies that there was a time when our country was at the zenith of its greatness. I wonder does West think that glorious era was during slavery, or perhaps the Jim Crow period.

As an Hispanic I`m cognizant of the fact that my people have never enjoyed more opportunities than today, although we aren`t a perfect union and racism is still prevalent. I certainly don`t want to go back to the halcyon days for racists when people of color were treated like dogs.

Kanye, putting on the MAGA hat may have made you feel like Superman, but it made you look like an Uncle Tom house Negro.

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.
