Kanye West tweets that he likes the way far-right personality Candace Owens “thinks”

Over the weekend, Kanye shocked the Internet with his unexpected support for conservative and President Donald Trump supporter Candace Owens. When Trump was elected as president, West was photographed with him at Trump Towers in NY.

Kanye West is getting political, everyone.

She said some African-Americans "are focused on their past and shouting about slavery" and that others are "focused on their futures".

Paul George has 36 points as Thunder beat Jazz in Game 1
Paul George was the star of the show for the Oklahoma City Thunder in a 116-108 win over the Utah Jazz on Sunday evening. Dante Exum played well at times for Utah , but he's more of a defensive guard than an offensive threat for the Jazz .

Owens went more direct with her response by singling out NY radio station Hot 97. I just want to be about love.' I said you're a liar because the people you're aligning yourself with aren't leading with love. Kanye West appeared to concur with Owens' belief on victimhood, tweeting Sunday afternoon, "self victimization is a disease".

Kanye West has professed his "love" for the way Candace Owens thinks, prompting an immediate social media controversy. She doesn't believe that racism is an issue and once said, "Racism exists, but it is far less rampant than ignorance, and ignorance can be cured through experience". Her blog series, "The Myth of the "Coon" has featured YouTube video titles such as, "I Don't Care About Charlottesville, the KKK, or White Supremacy" in the wake of the neo-nazi rally in Virginia in 2017. This is somehow the same West who once bravely slammed George W. Bush for botching Hurricane Katrina response efforts, openly criticized hip-hop for its homophobia, and wrote inspiring slices of introspection like "All Falls Down" and "Gorgeous". I tell every single person that everything that I have been inspired to do, was written in your music. "None of you white men own my blackness", she defiantly tweeted.
