Kanye's 2020 campaign can't bring about transformative change—it can only help Donald Trump get reelected.
Before you came along, the career you've had would have been impossible to imagine.
There was no model for the kind of independent artist you set out to be. You stood up to record labels that wanted to throw money at you to give up your independence. You gave up nothing and continued to succeed.
Recording Acid Rap at 19 was an insane achievement. You followed it up with Coloring Book at a time when a streaming-only album had never won a Grammy. It won three. You've credited God for your success. Maybe you're right, but my own preference is to credit your optimism, your immense talent, and your unshakeable will.
You stand up for what you believe, and you're not in the habit of letting long-shot odds deter you. I'm going to let that attitude inspire me while I try to convince you to stop supporting Kanye 2020. I know I probably can't do it, but I feel like I have to try.

The hit musical will drop on Disney+ July 3rd.
Lin Manuel-Miranda's Hamilton has taken the theater world by storm since its 2015 Broadway premiere.
A hip-hop musical about America's founding fathers doesn't sound immediately appealing, but Manuel-Miranda's brilliant song writing and diverse casting not only captured the attention of audiences, but proved that major change is possible within an art form as encumbered by traditions as musical theater.
The white supremacist Trump fan is back in jail—again—a symbol of everything wrong with America's prison system.
"I am a white supremacist. The Aryan Nation will rule the world!"
If you think that sounds like the words of a man who is about to be deservedly choked out, you're partially right. But before 36-year-old Nicholas Arnold Schock got taken down by a group of brave bystanders in Nokomis Florida, he would do a lot more to deserve such aggressive treatment.
The viral video of the incident opens with a belligerent Schock, half-naked, shouting at the staff of Pop's Sunset Grille to "call Donald Trump, he's gonna come get me out of prison." It's not evident what sparked the confrontation—whether Schock was refusing to wear a mask in the popular open-air venue, or simply wanted to strip naked. Whatever the case, Schock was seemingly convinced that Donald Trump would have his back in the ordeal.
