(Natural News) While America was caught up in the idea of a black man being killed by a police officer this summer, rapper Kanye West was drawing attention to a far bigger killer of black lives: abortion. Speaking on The Joe Rogan Experience yesterday, he continued his quest to draw attention to the disturbing number of black babies who are killed each year by comparing it to the current coronavirus pandemic.
In the interview, he talked about comments he made about his daughter at a South Carolina rally in July, when he cried onstage and told the world that he and his wife had considered aborting her. He said that he had felt that he was "too busy" to be a father.
West said that he cried at the thought that he might not have ended up having the family he does today, saying: "The idea of [abortion] just tears me up inside, that I was part of a culture that promotes this kind of thing."
He added that men aged 31 to 37 are some of the biggest advocates for abortion, saying: "That's how old I was. I felt like I was too busy. My dad felt like he was too busy for me. We have a culture of that … In our culture, we're doped up, and psyched out, and made to kill our children."
West, who is running for president, said that he would like to change the way people view orphanages and foster care. He also pointed out that more black children have been killed by abortion since February than those who have died of COVID-19. With 1,000 black children aborted each day, he says "we are in genocide."
It's a topic he has been discussing frequently in recent months, and he's been getting quite a bit of flak for it. In a tweet, he said of those who criticized him crying at the thought of aborting his first-born child: "I'm concerned for the world that feels you shouldn't cry about this subject."
In an interview with Nick Cannon, he said that people blasting him for the tearful speech shows that the world is "sick." And when Cannon discussed West's tremendous net worth, he said that wealth did not mean anything compared to "still being sensitive enough to cry at the idea of aborting my daughter."
