Kanye West Is Not Crazy.
Kanye West now identifies as a born again Christian. Many people want to dismiss him and rudely say that his spiritual awakening is a result of his mental health issues.
West recently sat down for an in-depth interview with Big Boy of the Real 92.3 radio station. He explained his spiritual journey. It has been years in the making.
I want to address two points he made that stuck out to me:
On the accusation of turning his back on his culture:
“I have turned my back on victimization mentality.”
On being criticized for his political views and wearing the MAGA hat:
“They were fighting for us to have the right to our opinion. Not the right to vote for whoever the white liberals said black people are supposed to vote for.”
The overall message is to not let anyone pigeon hole you into being who they think you should be. Don’t take action based on a portrait that someone else painted of you. You’re more than a demographic. Think for yourself.
