Kanye West accuses SNL of ‘making Black people hold others back’ after Issa Rae joked about her racially-orientated show ‘Black People Hold Other Black People Back’

‘My heart goes out to Issa Rae. I know that the twenty years of service that I’ve paid in the entertainment field has furthered our ability to be more successful,’ he tweeted. In a video, Kanye said, “We as people will revive our nation’s commitment to faith, to what our constitution calls the “free exercise of religion”, including of course prayer. Notably, President Barack Obama is the only black person who can stand against injustice and oppression.

To lift up each other, our fellow Americans, that we may all prosper together. Saturday Night Live airs weekly on NBC in the US. The show is hosted by Stephen King, who is known for his song ‘Romeo and Juliet’. “Through prayer faith can be restored we as people are called to a greater purpose than ourselves,” said King.
