Hip Hop’s Trump Relationship

MAGA Hulk rallies his fellow supporters in Beverly Hills, CA on Nov 1, 2020

If you’ve wanted to have a bad Thanksgiving throughout the past seven years, you pretty much know you could just mention Trump at the celebration table. The MAGA movement has created a MEGA stir, and the shiz is really hitting the fan now that Trump is the only former or sitting President to be indicted. As a side note, I want to thank all of the Twitter “experts” who called me a “Maggot” while researching this blog post. Wow, American discourse has really gotten special.

The mainstream media has repeatedly, since the run-up to the 2016 election, tried to neatly remind Americans of the dividing lines regarding race and party. The story goes like this: Black Americans have stayed loyal to their Democratic Party roots, while white Americans broke out like a group of lunatics (according to MSNBC and CNN) to do a white-people-gone-wild MAGA movement aimed at world domination and… we can’t forget… a resurgence of racism. 

This narrative has started to fracture in a major way the last few years, however. Anecdotally, more TicToks have gone viral lately with Americans raging out against Democrats’ theft of money and resources in the inner-cities, or anywhere near the cities they run for that matter. 

Statistically, even NBC news is starting to recognize the black coalition the Democrats have depended on for decades is bending more towards Trump¹. Why? Well, Americans are fed up. We’re on the brink of World War III, inflation is eating away at our lives, and the current President seems to only be interested in ice cream (which he says he keeps in his refrigerator, for some reason). 

Plus, remember all those Trump shout-outs in great classic hip hop videos? It’s good to remember that where the black community goes from here remains in the hands of the black community (not the white political “leaders” who enjoyed calling inner-city children “superpredators” in the 90’s– you can look that one up and thank me later).
