    While shit head enlightened artist fantasizes about his crazy unique stance, alleged rapists hit the courts, hate groups surge, corruption is rampant, etc.

    Maybe he’ll rap about how Ray jays dick tastes.

    He’s talking about the part of the 13th amendment that allows slavery/servitude in instances where a person has been convicted of a crime, hence the reference to prisons. Try not to trip over yourselves on the way to your outrage mobile.

    He literally said "As we abolish the 13th amendment." Its impossible to abolish the 13th without making slavery legal.

    I think pokes interpretation is correct, and kanye is just a complete dumbass. He probably watched 13th once while scrolling twitter and missed most of what was said

    It’s almost like 100-some odd characters is insufficient for an impulsive artist with mental health issues to fully convey complicated ideas.

    For fuck’s sake, he’s a seminal black figurehead who has, for years, spoken publicly about the desperate need for criminal justice reform and the abolition of the for profit prison system, specifically with regards to its deleterious effect on young black males.

    Anything is possible, but the chance that he meant that tweet to read “pro slavery” is so absurdly low that it’s not worth entertaining.

    I mean he did post a pic of himself wearing a hat that's a symbol of a known racist why saying we will abolish the 13th.

    And again, I dont care what his intention was. I commented on what he actually said. What he actually said was beyond ignorant. I get that you're a Kanye fanboy but it is what it is.

    Only one who said it’s “pro slavery” was TwoPoor and I thought that was tongue in cheek like my “make slavery great again post” my second post was mostly like I assume dblplay1212 was and that’s to call him stupid and say it’s dumb to try and find logic in his stupidity.

    If another MAGA asshat like Ted Nuggent tweeted that out no one would be excusing it. West tweeted out something extremely stupid. He could have said “fix” the 13th and gotten his point across. He said get rid of the shit that made slavery illegal.

    Right. Character limit is a joke excuse. Several words with less characters than "abolish" which would have made the most reasonable. He went with abolish though and therefore deserves to be called out for his ignorance.

    I haven’t listened to a Kanye album since Graduation and think he’s a lunatic and the steaming pile of human feces he calls his in-laws are opportunistic scavengers.

    However, it takes less than a millisecond to ascertain that a black, public advocate on prison reform is probably talking about prisons when he brings up the 13th amendment rather than promoting chattel slavery. Good grief.

    If you go to the tweet’s thread you’ll see MAGA ass clowns falling all over themselves talking about how great that was. If his audience was people who’ve been fucked over by the prison system he missed that by a long shot.

    Supposedly being passionate about ending the prison industrial complex while also indignantly supporting Trump is breathtakingly stupid.

    But it is very on brand for a deeply ignorant narcissist.

    You're literally white knighting for someone that suggested we should ABOLISH the 13th. Take a step back and realize how ignorant that is.

    second part the most important here. he is lost forever. I'm gonna choose to remember him as TCD Kanye when the nostalgia hits me in the future.

    on a side note, Jim Brown's dumbass was there dancing a jig for Agent Orange, that fucking killed me. Brown was one of my idols growing up playing football, this is brutal. all the time he spent on social activism for his people and now he's basically spitting in Kaep's face while he tries to do the same.

    I really wonder what is being discussed in Adidas HQ right now? They wont suffer a blowback because Kayne is a trumptard but their sales will decline, probably diristacly, because Kayne will no longer be the influence of culture that he once was.

    That cycle has kinda run it's course even without the Trump stuff. They kept production down for about 2 years and every release was a huge deal. Now they've upped production and a release is nowhere near what it was 2 years ago. Creams sat for a few days. As they've made more, they've become less cool. People blame colorways and the silo getting old but production numbers is like 98% of the reason they aren't as cool now. Nike is mid-cycle of the same thing with Off White. They've been the hottest thing on the planet for about a year now but they'll eventually up production and they won't be as cool anymore.

    EDIT: oops thought I was in the sneaker thread
