PageSix and other news outlets reported on superstar Kanye West breaking it down at a concert in San Jose about the election results and where he would have placed his vote. Mr West is quoted to have stated from the stage of SAP Center, performing on his Saint Pablo Tour:
“I said something that was kind of politically correct. I told y’all I didn’t vote, right? But I didn’t tell you — I guess I told you — but if I would’ve voted, I would’ve voted on Trump, That don’t mean that I don’t think that Black Lives Matter, that I don’t mean that I don’t think I believe in women’s rights … because that was the guy I would’ve voted for, This world is racist, OK? Let’s stop being distracted to focus on that as much. It’s just a f—king fact. We are in a racist country, period. Do not allow people to make us talk about that so f—king long. Let’s talk about whatever the f—- we wanna talk about”
