We are on frontier of massive change, says Kanye

A Saturday tweet from hip-hop star Kanye West in support of Candace Owens, a conservative African-American figure who has appeared on InfoWars and ridiculed Black Lives Matter, stirred political controversy over the weekend.

However, Kanye West also caused a backlash due to his support of Candace Owens. Owens serves as "urban engagement director"-and, apparently, director of communications-of Turning Point USA, a dubious non-profit dedicated to spreading "true free market values" on college campuses". Owens earlier oversaw the group's "urban engagement". If you have a vested interest in blacks jumping on top of cars, burning down our own neighborhoods, crying over the national anthem, boycotting H&M over monkey hoodies & screaming over hairdo appropriation-it may be time to short the stock.

This drew the ire of numerous rapper's followers, considering Owens has been highly critical of the Black Lives Matter movement.

"No publisher or publicist will tell me what to put where or how many pages to write".

Owens, who is in her late 20s, also launched a YouTube channel previous year, where she posts videos with titles including "Women marching in America again?"

"Victim mentality is not cool!" she declared.

Heard @HOT97 was talking about me. Owens herself retweeted the tweet to her account, adding "please take a meeting with me". You come in here with more emotions than they ever had when they were living through it.

The clips are from a 22-minute speech Adams made, entitled "Scott Adams tells you how Kanye showed the way to the Golden Age".

He said he called Kanye a "Liar" for claiming to preach from a place of love, because the DJ says the public figures West is aligning himself with do not represent love. "You're overly privileged Americans".

He even tweeted about how much he loves his Tesla.

She has since gone on to retweet a number of West's tweets, including "self victimization is a disease" and "Constantly bringing up the past keeps you stuck there". "They do not want black people to focus on their future, they want black people to focus on their past".
