To the editor:

Until recently, I didn’t know much about Kanye West. He’s a young, black rapper and cultural superstar who has a huge following. He caused quite a stir recently on social media for his Twitter comments about President Trump, tweeting “You don’t have to agree with Trump, but the mob can’t make me not love him. We are both dragon energy. He is my brother.” How unusual for someone in his position to express those sentiments. What explains it?

Simply put, Kanye West thinks for himself. Unlike the vast majority of blacks who instinctively vote with Democrats, Kanye has broken the mold in his open consideration of Trump and what he has to offer. He’s not the only one who’s done so, but his dragon energy could have a far-reaching effect. His message of love and acceptance is worth listening to.
