What is Kanye West selling now? The Chicago rapper and entrepreneur broke a lengthy social-media fast last week to announce a flurry of business endeavors, signaling a shoe launch, a clothing collaboration, a new single and album, an animated show , and a documentary. Now the tables have finally turned. This ethos colors Mr. Once more, West finds himself in a position where his white benefactors put him on display when asked to prove they advocate for people of color, though this time he does so with agency. Some of these measures brought people home, a detail Trump has used to counter accusations of racism against him only to later demonize, threaten, dox, and even gas Black Lives Matter protesters, some of whom have spent nights packed in jail cells without protective gear in the middle of a pandemic.

From the video's first few moments it was clear that this was something different, even for a rapper who has made a career off of wearing pink polos and singing an entire album in auto-tune. At the same time there was something familiar as Kanye challenged materialistic habits and racial stereotypes like he did on his single "All Falls Down.

That is a goal worth fighting for.
