    I think people like West are Republicans because it's better to be a big fish (Black American) in a little pond (Black Republicans) than a little fish (Black American) in a big pond (Democratic Party). If power is what you want, that is. Because otherwise, as commonmass pointed out, the cognitive dissonance is hard to imagine.

      because of past military and associations. His problem though, is he is ashamed of black people and maybe of being black as well. He is the type that believes every shot dead black child had it coming. One less I gotta worry about stealing my car. I have one in my family. Sad.
