Snoop Dogg’s ‘All-White’ Kanye Post Goes Viral

Kanye West’s open declarations of support for Donald Trump and criticism of the “plantation” mentality of the Democratic Party have been met with massive backlash from the Left. In the last few days, a Detroit hip-hop radio station officially banned his music, a Democratic congresswoman told him to stop talking so much, and many of his fellow performers have denounced him.

Among his peers who have slammed him is Snoop Dogg, who posted an image on Instagram on Thursday of an “allwhite” Kanye that has quickly gone viral.

“The new. Kanye well allwhite now way to go dude,” he wrote under the photoshopped image.

Snoop Dogg’s Uncle Tom-esque criticism of Kanye follows several comments that the performer has made recently that have raised the ire of the Left, including describing the belief that all African Americans should vote Democrat as a “plantation” mentality and pointing out that the Democratic Party was the party of slavery, while Abraham Lincoln was a Republican.

The most controversial of his comments was his statement to TMZ that 400 years of slavery “sounds like a choice“:

When you hear about slavery for 400 years – for 400 years? That sounds like a choice. Like, you was there for 400 years, and it’s all y’all? You know, like, it’s like we’re all mentally imprisoned. I like the word “prison” [because] “slavery” goes too direct to the idea of blacks. It’s like “slavery,” “Holocaust” – “Holocaust” is Jews, “slavery” is blacks. So, “prison” is something that unites us as one race. Black and whites being one race, that we’re one race. That we’re the human race.

He later offered some explanation of his remarks in a series of tweets. “To make myself clear,” he wrote (formatting adjusted), “of course I know that slaves did not get shackled and put on a boat by free will. My point is for us to have stayed in that position even though the numbers were on our side means that we were mentally enslaved. They cut out our tongues so we couldn’t communicate to each other. I will not allow my tongue to be cut.”
