The Top 5 Greatest Examples of Kanye West Speaking His Mind

George Bush Doesn’t Care About Black People 

This is arguably one of the most controversial moments in the history of live television. With the cameras rolling for a fundraiser for Hurricane Katrina victims, Kanye valiantly proclaims that George Bush doesn’t care about black people. The lower 9th ward got hit hard, and there is evidence that levies were blown in order to save the wealthier neighborhoods.[1] Kanye also pointed out that the U.S. military had the permission to shoot and kill American citizens.  Although at the time many viewed this as inappropriate, when looking back at the presidency of George W. Bush it may have been warranted. The guy had a point. And Mike Myers’ face? Priceless!

That time he interrupted Taylor Swift’s speech at the VMA’s 

Apparently, Kanye disagreed with Taylor Swift winning the Best Female Video award, and felt Beyonce created the “best video of all time.”

Most did not appreciate the moment, like President Obama, who called Kanye a “jackass.”

Kanye wore a confederate flag.

When asked about why he was wearing the flag, Kanye professed[2]:

“React how you want. Any energy you got is good energy. You know the confederate flag represented slavery in a way — that’s my abstract take on what I know about it. So I made the song ‘New Slaves.’ So I took the Confederate flag and made it my flag. It’s my flag now. Now what are you going to do?”

Without a doubt, Kanye has learned how to master the english language. He understands how important symbols are to American society, and the definitions that come with them.

He said he would have voted for President Trump.

Like President Trump, Kanye West is a controversial megastar. Throughout his career, he has mastered pop culture and proudly recognizes himself as a trend-setter. When he announced at a concert that he would have voted for Trump, media pundits immediately attacked him, and he was even hospitalized after this famous moment. One has to wonder with the #Qanon narrative what is really going on behind the scenes. Those who promote freedom of speech while ignoring what’s popular among the group-thinkers in Hollywood are often vilified by the media and are often labeled as crazy. And if you’re too outspoken, the consequences could be much worse.

 

His Return to Twitter and announced support of conservative pundit, Candace Owens.

Candace Owens is a relatively new voice in the liberty movement. She has shattered the common stereotypes that black Americans are expected to adhere to. Ultimately, she recognizes that the democratic platform promotes a victim ideology which is demeaning and destructive in nature. Conservatives and libertarians alike believe that all must have an equal opportunity whereas liberals believe all outcomes must be equal. Many believe this mentality destroys individuality and creativity.

After Kanye West posted this tweet, everything changed in an instant. As a leader in pop culture, Kanye could transform the narrative that many black Americans are expected to follow. Overall, this tweet personifies the future possibilities for black Americans if they open their mind to the fact that conservative ideology maintains that human nature or natural law allows all of mankind to thrive. We all hold a seed that bears the possibility of a strong, beautiful tree. If you view the world only as a victim, you are only allowing yourself to be continually victimized in the future. Once this tweet was posted, Kanye continued on an epic diatribe of tweets devoted to libertarian philosophy.
