How Should We Think About Kanye West's Tweets?

When Trump was elected as president, West was photographed with him at Trump Towers in NY.

Owens, who is black, has been criticized for her support of President Donald Trump and for her conservative political thoughts. He famously told the audience of a Hurricane Katrina charity telethon that "George Bush doesn't care about black people", and his flamboyant persona-coupled with an apparent willingness to disrupt awards shows-has frequently made him the target of right-leaning cultural critics, who often depicted him as a bombastic narcissist. "And if you want to see these control-freak vampires really go insane, please join me on my broadcast!" "I'm freaking out. @kanyewest ....please take a meeting with me. Last November, she was appointed director of urban engagement for the nonprofit Turning Point USA", Breitbart News recalled.

Hip-hop artist Kanye West was criticised by the left for his support of Donald Trump during the 2016 presidential race.

Our sources say that Kanye's recent public comments aren't "making a lot of sense" to his team, who first thought his downpour of Tweets and faucet of thoughts were just PR for his upcoming album. However, he got the serious side-eye when he met with Donald Trump back in December of 2016.

Kanye West has professed his "love" for the way Candace Owens thinks, prompting an immediate social media controversy.

On Sunday after HOT 97's Ebro Darden posted an Instagram post stating he knows why the Carters and the Wests don't have "play dates", he had a 30-minute phone call with West about his current "out of touch" rhetoric. Her work has appeared in the New York Times, Texas Monthly, the Austin American-Statesman, Damn Joan, and Community Impact Newspaper.

Overall, however, it doesn't seem like West is necessarily trying to make a pro-conservative statement with his tweets. If this is who West publicly is now - controversial, flirting with the far right - maybe this is who he always was, which would mean his music stemmed from those views all along. Instead, he seems interested in interacting with major thought leaders in the U.S. Before tweeting all of the Adams videos, West also sang praises for Elon Musk and his new Tesla auto.

I am saddened by your conviction that white people wield such a great deal of metaphysical power over the exercise of your own agency. "You're not living through anything right now".
