I was reading a Vulture article today about why Kanye wasnt invited to the infauxguration. I think very little of this current iteration of Ye, which saddens me a bit. I’m a fan of his music, his early struggle and his declaration of Bush 43’s lack of concern for black people. Then, well y’all saw the decline, so I ain’t gotta repeat it. I just ain’t a fan right now and I think he could use some time in an Auburn Gresham bungalow that still has a tiki bar, one red light and an ever present card table in the basement. But I really wanted to know why he was not invited since he was the first negro Porangetus™ invited over to his golden tower to discuss multi-cultural issues. Surely, this great friend of his and someone who would have voted for him (if his black ass voted), should be on dat world stage. But alas, it is not to be. When Tom BArRaCK, the chairman of the Presidential Inauguration Committee, was asked by CNN’s Erin Burnett if Kanye was gonna perform, Ol Tom said the following:
“We haven’t asked him. I mean he’s been great. He considers himself a friend of the president elect, but it’s not the venue. The venue we have for entertainment is filled out, its perfect. It’s gonna be um, typically and um, traditionally American and um Kanye is a great guy – we just haven’t asked him. And we move on with our agenda.”
WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAIT. Waaaaaaaaaait. Wait. JUST ONE DAMN MINUTE WAIT.
“We haven’t asked him.” – And why the fuck not? He was the first nigga you invited over for coffee, proving brother Malcolm’s point.
