Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, October 13, 2018

Kanye West is what happens when negroes don't read," CNN commentator Bakari Sellers said, apparently referencing a Chris Rock stand-up routine from the 1990s. Sellers added that West does not have the depth to understand the issues with the Trump presidency. Another panel member, Tara Setmayer, said West should not be taken seriously and has become the "token negro of the Trump administration."

It's funny how people hitching their wagon to Trump and Kanye West are getting angry when they're described in unflattering terms.

You've earned it, guys. Own it.

What racist epithets are called when uttered by a Liberal.

Negro is not a racist epithet. They wanted to use another N word, but they knew they couldn't get away with it.

Maybe CNN should have called Kanye a 'thug'. That is the PC righty term for the melanin privileged.

But "token negro" definitely is an epithet.

"No we just enjoy rubbing your hypocrisy in your face."

Trying to get a rise out of liberals is the core value of modern conservatism.

That's too bad. I've not been of the opinion that CNN is left Leaning, liberal, etc.

But CNN will be dragging this around for a while.

Taylor Swift says people should consider voting Democratic and conservatives go rabid.

Kanye Shows up at the White House, drops a MF bomb and Conservatives cheer.

Shaking head.

I can't think of one Taylor Swift song, nor one Kanye West song. I know I've seen them both on TV, but nothing sticks.

They just don't make ‘em like Genn Danzig anymore. I wonder who HE thinks we should vote for?

Yep. Don't care, don't listen to their music or opinions. What's fascinating here is the emergence of Kanye Derangement Syndrome. A black man who doesn't support the leftist narrative must be destroyed. He could be contagious.

#19 I've actually seen The Rollins Band a couple of times in Mexico and OC, going back nearly 30 years ago. When I lived in Hollywood I ran into him at an early screening of Reservoir Dogs. I've never seen Danzig. I like him a lot, but I really do prefer Rollins as a front man.

Wasn't Negro an acceptable term for black people in the 60s and 70s? Or is that just what black people were called in movies?

Eitherway. Kanye is an attention whoore. Just like Trump.

These staged meetings are nothing more than a distraction.

News outlets wasting their time on fluff news.

Kanye's color had nothing to do with how ridiculous his meeting with Trump was. Both of them looked ridiculous. Kanye culd be just as orange as Trump, wouldn't change anything.

#27 If Kanye being black was irrelevant, why did CNN trot out a bunch of black pundits on Don Lemon's show to call him an illiterate token negro?

Oh, do I try to destroy you, day in and day out? So sorry about that!

Look on the bright side. You get real good wifi on your fainting couch. No doubt that's Durable Medical Equipment paid for by the VA for a PTSD snowflake such as yourself.

So that's nice.

His parents did.

They had the misfortune of birthing him while being black.

His life has been destroyed ever since.
