Kanye West may have just exposed how unpopular his Yeezy brand was as a single t-shirt dominated the press far more than the headlines of the show. Kanye wore a shirt featuring the words “White Lives Matter” during his Yeezy Season 9 event at Paris Fashion Week Monday. Usually, many designers and fashion brands pull off antics to enhance or further push the show in this case no one even followed any of his releases. But before we share our thoughts on that, let’s analyze the bait.
Instigators Using Fake Race Hate Backlash To Create Hype & Free Promotion
Ever logged onto the internet and heard black or white people complaining or cheering about something, like the little mermaid, and then turned around and saw that nobody actually is?
Well over the years mainstream media has taken on a fabulous trick to bring free promotion and attention to entities such as songs, movies, celebrities they endorse, and more by stirring up negative race relations topics.
Usually, it’s done by playing black people as the victims and white people as the perpetrator but sometimes in reverse. It is supported by the same fake bots that doubled Joe Bidens following and made Elon Musk track back in his intent to buy Twitter.
Believe it or not, race controversy sells and makes headlines and it’s an easy way to generate support from the African American community. If the mainstream media hates someone for any reason at all….’call her/him a racist’. If they like someone….’Claim she/he is hated by the racists’, to gain support from black people. Why didn’t Kanye wear this on any other occassion? It’s simple, he had a show to sell.
Kanye West On Race/Politics
Kanye West on the other hand has not only been driving a wedge against mainstream media but also politicians of today. Since President Trump came into office, Kanye spent his time fighting for his freedom to support Trump against an imperial machine that tried to label Trump a racist, and he has every right to.
In hindsight, despite Trump’s loose lips and jovial character, his policies and deeds were far better for black America than Biden and any of his predecessors. Kanye who is not very literate in getting his point across for his support of Trump would usually get entangled in saying sound byte the media would focus on to estrange his relationship with Trump and isolate his views from pop black culture.
At the peak of the 2022 elections, Kanye hid his support from Trump when it was most needed and didn’t make any statements in regard to the elections. And this is what we know of Kanye and his political views.
Kanye West Tries To Matter
In partnership with Candice Owens, Kanya thought it would be an exciting act to rock a ‘White Lives Matter’ t-shirt to his Yeezy S/S23 show two days ago. The two thought this would be a controversial act and received enormous anti-black sentiments from the black community.
Yes, they did get some comments on twitter, but that was the usual backlash he receives even for just showing his face. The truth of the matter is ‘nobody cared’. It wasn’t the big new Kanye West thought it would be. The truth of the matter is nobody cares about the black little mermaid.
White people don’t care, and black people don’t care. Are there a few a-holes commenting on it, of course, there is. But that is one everything, and every review. However, the instigators that wish to promote the movie out of this controversy will specifically highlight these a-hole’s comments and magnify it to represent the race “White people are mad the little mermaid is black”, which intern served extreme promotion in the black community for a movie we don’t need a remake of.
This is the memo Kanye West and Candace Owens didn’t read about, ‘Black people don’t care’ that ‘white lives matter’. You have to generate fake articles in the mainstream media to give the impression we do. And as the mainstream media isn’t in support of Kanye West’s political antics, they might write about what he did, but they won’t add on any fake race relations hype.
The bottom line is, STOP USING RACE HATE DIVISION TO SELL YOUR SHOWS, MOVIES, SONG AND SO FORTH! Until your race hatred turns physical, nobody cares.
BLACK LIVES MATTER Vs WHITE LIVES MATTER
Now that we have made the point on why his antics didn’t go viral as he thought, let’s look into it. We get the message, not all black people, but critical black people do. Yes, Black Lives Matter was a fake organization of black leaders who exploited the sentiments of unlawfully slayed black people to enrich themselves and propel support for the US Democratic party and turn people against Trump.
Let’s not forget before Black Lives Matter, a man called Kanye West was on TV during hurricane Katrina crying that George Bush doesn’t care about black people. Is that not the same sentiment? Despite the organization being fake, it doesn’t take away from the same sentiment.
Does it mean white lives don’t matter, of course not? Does it mean white people can’t scream white lives matter, of course, they can. But what has ‘White Lives Matter’ got to do with the black community? Since when did the black community have the power to hurt white people in droves? Even more, have the ability to fix problems they may be facing.

UPCOMING TOP EVENTS!
Ghana’s leading fashion event Accra Fashion Week is scheduled for 7-11 December 2022 following their 5th-year celebration last year in 2021. Accra Fashion Week is a platform for African designers that can be compared to fashion weeks across the major capitals. It aims to fill the void which sees tremendous creativity and culture across the continent with the absence of an operating fashion infrastructure.
The epic event took place at Ghana Dubai in Accra, and saw models march down the steps from the Kwame Nkrumah Monument whilst being followed by a spotlight, before circulating the central fountains. Memories of the exciting night still give chills as guests revisit the experience on youtube.
However, rest assured that 2022 is going to be even more exciting with greater performances and an upgraded designer collection. FashionGHANA.com is sure to bring you the exclusives we did on www.FashionGHANA.com/TV. All last year’s shows are available to watch on youtube. Designer’s registration is ongoing on the AccraFashionWeek.org website.
As we embark on another year of celebrating African culture, our theme for 2022 is “Afrofuturism.” This term was created to explore the developing intersection of cultural aesthetic, philosophy of science, and philosophy of history as it relates to the African Diaspora. During this year’s events, Afrochella will bring “Afrofuturism” to life through fashion, food, art and music. In 2019, the African Diaspora returned home to the continent for the “Year of Return.” This year, we will explore the endless possibilities of what “Afrofuturism” could look like in 2022 and beyond.
