Black Community's Problem With Kanye West

Kanye West, the Grammy-winning rapper, has been involved in various controversies throughout his career, but his recent support of US President Donald Trump has been criticized by several members of the Black community. 
The Black community in the US has been advocating for their rights and equality for a long time, and many feel that President Trump doesn't represent these goals. By publicly supporting the President, Kanye West is seen as normalizing his actions and policies that may hurt the Black community. 
West has also made various statements that some Black activists say are detrimental to social progress. In an interview with TMZ, he claimed that slavery was a choice, which was considered offensive and inaccurate by many. Additionally, he has expressed anti-vaccine views, which could be harmful to Black communities with higher rates of diseases like COVID-19. 
While Kanye West has always been a controversial figure, his recent actions and statements have led many in the Black community to question his allegiance and harm to their community. It's essential to have conversations and discussions on this topic with an open mind to understand the perspectives of all sides.
