Hip-hop superstar Kanye West criticized the left at the White House on Thursday for trying to control black people with accusations of racism.
“A liberal will try to control a black person through the concept of racism because they know that we are very proud emotional people,” West said. “You think racism can control me? That don’t stop me, that’s an invisible wall.”
The famous rapper wore a Donald Trump campaign hat to the meeting, calling it his “superman cape” delivering an over 10-minute speech about his support for the president.
When reporters started asking him questions, he quickly responded.
“I think we need to care about all people,” he said.
He said he had grown after he said that George W. Bush didn’t care about black people, explaining that he had been conditioned by the left to have a “victim mentality.”
“We get caught up over the idea of racism, over the idea of industry,” he said, calling for more black Americans to have “ownership” of their society.
He also criticized the left for their attacks on police officers.
