Kanye West angers fans saying he backs Trump, despite not voting

Kanye West aggravated fans and reportedly prompted some to leave his San Jose show on 17 November as he went off on a lengthy political rant. West told the audience he didn’t vote in the 8 November presidential election, but if he had, he would have voted for Donald Trump. He argued that his support for Trump didnt mean he didn’t support women’s rights or the Black Lives Matter movement, as the video here shows, though he told the crowd that black people should talk less about race. He said America is not a racist country and talking about racism was a distraction that no presidential candidate was going to change. Nov 18, 2016
