"Woke" Black social media is finding something to whine about.I guess its Howard's turn...again. This time is Kanye West Sunday Sermon.
For those who don't know or care. Kanye West is a bipolar rapper married to Kim Kardashian. For the last few months he's been having concerts/rants around the country called Sunday Sermons that have gained popularity.
He had a surprise "pop up" serman early Saturday morning of homecoming on Howard main yard. Pop up is a new term that basically means unannounced until an hour prior.
I was nearby setting up or tailgate and . West has been called alot of things. But since his meeting with Trump , wearing a MAGA had he's become enemy #1 to liberal Black social media .Even to the point of being called a slave denier.
Black PWI grads are going extra saying HBCU or Howard grads should never question their blackness again and so much other nonsense.
My take is this. I know West is a bipolar nutcase who is a genius at marketing who is married to one of the most popular social media influencers on the planet. Do I approve of his message. somewhat. Do I approve of Howard having him there , yes.Schools must have diversity of thought and give a platform to be heard. His form of "church" maybe be disturbing to some but young people seem to be responding .It maybe to be near celebrity. But with young blacks leaving the church maybe the Black church can take some cues in his style and incorporate it into what they may be missing attracting this demographic.
As for the faux woke Blue checks (that is how Twitter verifies a person's identity) on social media , they'll move on to the next outrage in a few hours. That's why no one takes them seriously .
