  1. Kayne is a man before his time in a few years we will find out he is righ idk about Kayne 2024 after Trump wins a second term but lets make and keep America great again

  2. In my higschool english class. My teacher taught us through the whole semester of racial injustice, in the justice court system, fatalism, racial injustice in the education system, racial discrimination within the culture and most importantly one that affects a lot of people is mental pressure and freedom of thought. After all these lessons and teachings, it seemed that many of my class mates did not get the main idea. Self victimization is actually a disease. It makes you weak. Many thought that these lessons were taught to make you feel bad for yourself. All of my classmates are African american or Mexican american. Don't make yourself feel ad a victim when you are actually not. Don't let the media or teachers make you feel that way. If the edu system is against your color, then that will change when you fight for equality by being the best student and getting high scores. Not by holding posters walking out in the streets. Now a days, that shit is a pebble to the government. Build businesses, cities, and create new ideas.

  3. black american slaves chose to lie down and waited to be saved but hatians chose to fight and they defeated a napoleonic army…so kanye is not lying you bird brained americans….america is blinded by the left

  4. I don't always agree with some of Van's thoughts on various topics; however, he is always very articulate when expressing his positions. I am team Van on the Kanye interview. Van consistently represents the Black community in stellar fashion when history, matters of justice/injustice and group personhood is is the focus. Yay Van, you presented your righteous indignation in a most respectful, matter-of-factly, balanced and powerful way as is your usual style. Bravo and kudos befitting a professional person. Shalom

  5. Kanya has a valid point. The 400 years doing nothing to end slavery is hard realize. It's was actually the whites who ended slavery. Blacks never did any kind of organized revolt to change the dynamic of slavery. It was the whites who instigated the overthrow and abolish slavery. The fact nothing happened within the black community for over 400 years looks like it could be considered a choice.

  6. im watching the thumbnail and thinking to myself like damn tmz really trying to make every cent off this whole situation

  7. His black ex-fiancé was a designer and his biggest influence. His mother's last wish was that they'd marry.

    It's Kim's fault. She allegedly cheated on Reggie Bush and Kanye cheated on Alexis.

    Dump Kim. Love you, Kanye. We miss you. Get better soon. Your mom will come through and steer you back.

  8. Corinthians 13:4-5: “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs."

  9. Van is a very evil human being who is trying to bring down the black community. He wants to breed hate and not love. Don’t listen to this very evil human being

  10. What Kanye was saying is 100% correct but he expressed it in an inarticulate way. Lathan very eloquently says nothing of substance but still gets applause. Like most on the left, Van cares more about racial and political validation than he does about actually helping POC who are struggling and dying
