After Kanye said 400 years of slavery sounds like a ‘choice’…
(Ben Sellers, Liberty Headlines) Rapper Snoop Dogg continued his feud with Kanye West In an appearance on “The View” Thursday.
Snoop Dogg (real name Calvin Broadus Jr.) implied that West, who is married to reality TV star Kim Kardashian, was mentally unsound due to the absence of a black woman in his life.
“He truly misses his mother,” Broadus said. “He truly misses a black woman in his life. He truly misses the stability of having somebody tell him when he’s wrong, and correcting him and checking him, as opposed to allowing him to continue to do what he’s doing.”
Apparently Broadus believes the white Kardashian is insufficient to fulfill that role, and/or that independent thinking by a black man about a critical period in U.S. history is unacceptable.
The “Gin and Juice” performer’s prognosis came after being asked by co-host Meghan McCain to respond West’s statements that 400 years of slavery was a choice for enslaved blacks.
“I thought he needed some medical attention…,” Broadus replied. “I started feeling sad for him.”
“To me he’s crying out for help, so instead of me bashing him, we trying to help him now,” he added.
West, promoting his forthcoming album, “Love Everyone,” drew headlines recently by expressing support for President Donald Trump. Trump subsequently credited West with doubling his popularity among blacks.
The Republican support was a departure for West, who, in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, accused then-President George W. Bush of hating black people.
Broadus, who co-hosts a show with Martha Stewart on VH1 titled “Martha & Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party,” responded to West’s Trump statement with a photoshopped picture of West and the comment “The new. Kanye well allwhite now way to go dude.”
Broadus has been a frequent Trump critic.
In October, he weighed in on the NFL kneeling controversy by saying, “The president said he wants to make America great again, f— that shit, we’re going to make America crip again.”
He followed that up with a single, “Make America Crip Again,” that featured album art of a cadaver in a morgue, covered by an American flag, with a “Trump” toe tag.
A previous music video showed Broadus aiming a handgun at the skull of a clown dressed as Trump.
