During the time of slavery in the United States, some slaves did the bidding of their masters by ruling over other slaves for special favors from their masters. There were freed slaves who owned slaves. Some of these owners “purchased family members as slaves in order to protect them…. [O]n the other hand, they purchased other black people ‘as an act of exploitation,’ primarily to exploit their free labor for profit, just as white slave owners did.
None of this should surprise anyone since the African slave trade was often based on blacks selling other blacks into slavery. They did it for the same reason of their white counterparts for one of the oldest and prevalent of sins — the “love of money” (Luke 16:14; Col. 3:5; 1 Tim. 3:3; 6:9-10; 2 Tim. 3:2).
Now we come to Kanye West, he’s been speaking out lately.
Some of his comments have been considered to be a betrayal of his race and the black cause. The vast majority of blacks support the Democrat Party. Blacks who vote Republican are considered persona non grata by so-called black leaders. Blacks who vote Republican are often denigrated and shunned by other blacks. “It is a simple fact that there is a shortage of black conservatives and where they exist, they are denigrated as ‘Oreos’ or ‘Uncle Toms.’” (Red State)
Take at this “whited” image of Kanye West by Snoop Dogg: “’The new. Kanye well all white now way to go dude,’ the rapper wrote on Instagram, accompanied by a photo of West with white skin.”
This isn’t the first time when Leftist blacks who defer to the Democrat Party denigrate other blacks who believe the Democrat Party hurts blacks with its policies. At the Morgan State University gubernatorial debate in Maryland in 2002, “Oreo cookies were present and used as a means of ridiculing then-candidate for lieutenant governor Michael Steele…. The cookies were just part of a wide-ranging intimidation campaign employed against him and Republican gubernatorial candidate Robert Ehrlich that night which included booing, insults directed at the candidates’ families and vandalism of their supporters’ cars. ” (National Center)
Such an insult is designed to keep renegade blacks in their place. It’s a threat. If a black person leaves the Democrat plantation, he or she will encounter a wilderness of rejection and possibly the loss of their livelihood.
When Kayne West made positive comments about Pres. Trump, the black slave masters went to work on him. He needed to be reined in before he left the reservation and brought some fellow captives with him:
Kanye West is now a marked man — Tha Dogg Pound rapper Daz Dillinger put the call out for the Crips to beat Kanye’s ass. Daz’s video putting gang members on alert for Kanye is the most severe and violent reaction yet to Ye saying he loves President Trump and calling him his “brother.” Daz says Kanye is essentially saying, “I’m with you mastah Trump. Burn all these n***ers.” He goes on to make a comparison to “Django Unchained” — before flat out saying any Crips out there need to “f*** Kanye up.” (TMZ)
There was no hue and cry from traditional black leaders over these comments. Why should there be? They would like to do something similar to West but are restrained by their positions and the money they receive for being kept-slaves. Slave masters rarely get their hands dirty. Their surrogates do the dirty work.
The following by Congresswoman Maxine Waters was a true insult. The comments by Daz Dillinger was something of a compliment. Kanye is dangerous enough to be “f***** up” with the threat of violence. But what Waters said was a true putdown reminiscent of the ways blacks were talked to and about during Jim Crow…
