After dropping a lengthy interview with Charlamagne Tha God, and making an embarrassment out himself with his slavery comments at the TMZ fice, it appears that Kanye West has decided to do some research in order to get a little more informed about social and political issues.
Today, Kanye posted a picture his recent internet searches, a list names that include a wide range expertise and points view. Included are prominent activists such as Tamika Mallory, Linda Sarsour, and Carmen Perez; television pundits and personalities such as, Tomi Lahren, Angela Rye, and Eboni Williams; as well as California Senator Kamala Harris. Their specialties include issues gun control, mass incarceration, and religion, and come from both sides the political spectrum.
Charlamagne, who this whole time has acted both as one Kanye’s harshest critics and most loyal defender, seems to find promise in what Kanye is doing. He reposted the tweet on Instagram, captioning the post with, “Hey @troubleman31 couple more camera flashes And I think he will be ok…….” The camera flashes, in this instance, refer to the method escaping the “sunken place” in the movie Get Out, which Kanye has reference several times in his tweets as well as his verse on Travis Scott’s “Watch.”
Not bad for a guy who once claimed to be a proud non-reader books. Hopefully he grasps more than just a surface level these issues before he decides to go on camera and state his opinion again.
