“Last night on CNN, Kanye West was called a ‘token negro’ and a ‘dumb negro’. I want you guys to imagine if those words were EVER uttered on FoxNews. CNN has finally committed to going full blown RACIST. They want their slaves back,” Owens wrote.

This isn’t the first time the liberal network has been accused of racism over some suspect comments. Analyst Jeffrey Toobin blamed Antifa violence on black Americans in August, raising the ire of Candace Owens again, who said that the network was being “horribly racist.”

“Blaming black Americans for crimes that an ALL-WHITE gang commits—why? Because white Democrats are incapable of violence, and only black democrats are?” she tweeted.

Others on Twitter voiced their objection to CNN’s Kanye-bashing:

This is pretty despicable. Not every black person is an intellectual like @Bakari_Sellers @TaraSetmayer @donlemon but regular folks have some decency and common sense. And @cnn is cool with this? #Kanye #KanyeWest https://youtu.be/WaRlLNb2fXA?t=43

How can any honest person not call this CNN segment racist?

– “Kanye is what happens when negroes don’t read”
– Kanye is “token negro of the Trump administration”
– “Black folks are about to trade Kanye West in the racial draft”
– “Kanye’s an attention whore, like the president”

These hateful people on CNN called Kanye West a “Dumb Negro” and a “Token Negro”.

He said Supporting Trump is what happens when blacks don’t read.

CNN allowed this kind of language and Don Dirty Lemonade laughed!

This is an absolutely shameful segment on @DonLemon’s show last night about Kanye West, and if a similar segment occurred on Fox News about a liberal black person, CNN would be covering it as major news, rightfully so: https://townhall.com/tipsheet/laurettabrown/2018/10/10/don-lemon-cracks-up-as-cnn-panel-uses-racial-slur-to-mock-kanye-west-n2527193

CNN: It’s okay to bring a black person on TV to call Kanye West a “token negro”, but it’s NOT okay for a reformist Muslim to call Islamic terrorists terrorists.

‘Kanye West is what happens when Negroes don’t read’: CNN guest declares artist too stupid to meet…

Kanye West serves as an example of the intolerance to varying opinion on the left, and how they react when people of color escape the Democratic plantation. CNN commentator Bakari Sellers responded…

Anti-intellectualism isn’t cool? I think Kanye just won 2024.
