Kanye West Says He Supports Trump, Tells Black People To Stop Focusing On Racism (VIDEO)
(AllHipHop News) Kanye West is back at it. The Chicago rapper once again stopped a show during his "Saint Pablo Tour" to share his thoughts.
This time the audience at the SAP Center in San Jose found out Ye's true views on the 2016 election.
"If I would have voted, I would have voted on Trump," said Kanye to a mixture of applause and boos.
Donald Trump's presidential campaign was met with heavy criticism over what was perceived as the use of xenophobic, sexist, and racist rhetoric.
According to Kanye, the African-American community should move past talking about issues involving racial discrimination.
"To black people, stop focusing on racism. This world is racist, okay. Let's stop being distracted to focus on that as much," stated Kanye.
Since Trump was elected, the number of hate crime incidents have risen significantly across the country.
The Southern Poverty Law Center reports there were 437 acts of hate between Election Day on November 8 and November 14.
Most of the victims have been people of color, Muslims, immigrants, the LGBT community, and women.
In addition, the Ku Klux Klan plans to host a parade in North Carolina next month to celebrate President-Elect Trump's victory.
