KANYE WEST: CONNECT WITH ME
Kanye West has disclosed inadvertently a feeling of inferiority. He made a claim on behalf of Barack Obama on radio 105.1 in New York that,
“Obama can’t make these moves or he’s not executing. That’s because he ain’t got those connections. Black people don’t have the same level of connections as Jewish people.”
You can find the video and hear Kanye West making the claim here:
I admire Kanye West for his talents and personal achievements. And he is a good businessman.
If Kanye West feels that he doesn’t have enough Jewish connections, then he is invited to send me a friend request on Facebook. Same invitation goes to his fiancée Kim Kardashian.
As for Obama, he is not poor in Jewish connections…
Let’s start with David Axelrod and Rahm Emanuel who were instrumental in his election as U.S. President. Next, let’s count Obama’s loyal Secretary of the Treasury Jack Lew, who is an orthodox Jew. Then let me not forget the Secretary of Commerce, Penny Pritzker the billionaire heiress who was his campaign finance co-chair. And the list goes on.
So may be Kanye West just feels poor with Jewish connections when he compared himself to Barack Obama?
Well, I am willing to alleviate his sense of isolation. I am obviously Jewish. And I like Kanye West.
