Did we feel something!?
Feels like hes telling the truth instead of bowing down to those Illuminati- gay boule puppet master ass nigguz. I feel like he had the right to speak his mind and I FEEL Something from TMZ's need to post a comment on their own video. Like you're trying to make kanye look bad. I Agree w/ Kanye. Y'all grimey AF and highly opinionated and he did to TMZ what TMZ does to everyone.
West's intuition is very strong. He see things, but the rest feeling / suffering the things. It's difficult when the care witness (west) trying to give emphatic & sympathy to the rest. I got every point in both party. Life is beautiful kind of pain. Keep your heads up guys. His rich & wealthy doesn't define who he is, his intuition and legacy about it is. This man is something.
I love Kanye West so much. I just watched his Interview with David Letterman on Netflix and it brought me back here. Kanye West says how he really feels not like most fake ass celebrities. The man feels the way most of the nation does and is understanding that Division is not the answer. The only way we can fix this country and our society is Unity.
The phrase 'make america great again' isnt bad i could see the point kanye was trying to make by wearing the hat. But cmon bro the way the president said that phrase and the human race he insulted is not ok Mr. Kanye. Yes we do need to make america great again by looking past the color of our skin and just stop the violence!
Honestly I always end up agreeing with Kanye a lot of black people stuck in the old ways. It seems like there’s a bigger power pushing that narrative and Kanye stood up to it and got marked as crazy. But I can def see his vision, and I get why most people don’t as well. I almost feel bad for ye, he did what he felt and believed to be right which was long term trying to bring peace between two communities and he got shit on for it
VAN LATHAN THINKS HE KNOWS "REAL WORLD POLITICS..." VAN L. WILL NEVER (EVER) TELL YOU ABOUT THE "GLOBALISM SCHISM," THAT KANYE IS TRYING TO EXPOSE! WITHOUT GETTING HIMSELF KILLED, LIKE "PRINCE" / "MICHEAL J." ETC.. VAN L. ACTUALLY THINKS HE'S ENLIGHTENED!
We need more discussions instead of debates. This was actually enjoyable. Kanye isnt saying hes right and your an idiot but hes actually expressing his thoughts and then listens to yours without shaming you. We are so afraid to be wrong that we dont seek out the correct answers.
Sorry but I lost a lot of Respect for Kanye after hearing this, his rant during that Concert I agreed with mostly everything he said, but his little cop out BS about Opioids in this Rant was just beyond pathetic. They had him on 7 pills, really, because to me that doesn't sound like he was following his scripts by what the Dr prescribed, and I say that based off extensive years of being on Opioids, and let me bring some knowledge to all of you because their are idiots like Kanye walking around giving the public false misinformation about Opioids. Opioids taken like Prescribed are one of the safest, most effective of the Pharmaceutical Medications available, Opioids are very safe when a responsible adult who can follow a label takes em, after only weeks of being prescribed pain meds a tolerance develops where pain meds stop giving you a high feeling, and only provide pain relief because that's what Pain meds were designed to do.
I'm not talking about Opiates, Opiates are by far more dangerous, and not the same as Opioid pain meds, Opiates are Synthetic Pain Killers, Opiates are Pharmaceutical Chemical Garbage if you ask me, the fact Drs walk around saying Opiates are safer than Opioids shows their lack of knowledge, education, and experience with these medications. Fentanyl which is an Opiate, not an Opioid has probably killed more people than all the different Opioid pain medications available, including the Recording Artist Prince. Prince died because Pain Management has turned into the most pathetic health care of the world here in America because Pathetic Drug Addicts who are illiterate in reading bottles had to abuse em, Prince was in pain, not a drug addict, didn't get the help from the Drs like he needed, Prince turned to the streets for Pain Management and pain relief. Prince bought what he thought was Hydrocodone pills which turned out to be Synthetic Opiate Fentanyal Pills, but what did the Scumbag media do, they blamed Opioids, not Opiates like they should've. We never had an Opioid Epidemic in America, it was always a Fentanyl/Heroin Epidemic, or just an Opiate Epidemic, 93-97 percent of all overdose deaths are related to Heroin/Fentanyl. Heroin isn't killing tons of people nor are Opioids, the Fentanyl being cut into the Heroin is killing all those people, Fentanyl isn't an Opioid, it's an Opiate, and like Drs all over America have been saying for over a decade pain medication didn't cause this FAKE Opioid Epidemic the Government is using as an Excuse to Sue the Pharmaceutical Industry to compensate for the Drug Enforcement Agency's poor response in protecting American Streets from illegal dangerous drugs like Fentanyl.
TMZ you lost a viewer for life by letting Kanye give out misinformation about Opioids, and bringing it to the attention of everyone that most humans are too stupid to read a bottle when taking Pharmaceutical Medications. I'm somebody in extreme physical pain everyday, my max dose per day was 4 Oxycodone IR pills, and 2 Oxymorphone ER pills a day which I followed to the extreme, like the warnings on the bottle say you're supposed to take em as prescribed, otherwise they can be dangerous, so because Kanye obviously couldn't read a bottle or have the Knowledge to know taking a medication like not prescribed can be dangerous, it can also lead to addiction, everyone should just forgive him and people should forget how he acted because he was on drugs. Kanye that's truly pathetic, I used to have a lot of respect for you, especially in regards to your knowledge and intelligence. But after seeing this I'm not sure if I'm even going to listen to your music anymore because you were irresponsible with Opioids so that's bad on the Opioid Pain Medication, and its the medications fault, and not yours. It's because of misinformation like this video and what Kanye says for why the public can't get the medications they need, they deserve, and should have a right to receive based on their Medical conditions, sorry but I'm tired of hearing this played out BS Opioids are to blame for everything, not the user. I'm not surprised we have a New, Rarely talked about Epidemic of people killing themselves because they knew that would forever stop their Chronic Pain because they're no longer get the help they need from Drs because Pathetic Drug Addicts abused medications, but in America drug addicts deserve a future, not people who are disabled or in Chronic Pain. Kanye only 1 Person is to blame, and it's not the medications fault, its the Irresponsible User which is you, and only you carry that blame, not the medications.
SLAVERY WAS A CHOICE THEY CHOSE TO BE SLAVES THEY HAD AN OPTION TO FIGHT BACK OR BE IN CAPTIVITY THEY CHOSE WHIPS AND CHAINS LIKE NIGGAS TODAY THEY CAN TAKE BACK WHAT THEY ONCE HAD FREEDOM BUT THEY PREFER WHIPS CARS AND CHAINS NECKLACES INSTEAD OF ROAMING AROUND WITHOUT EM.
Slavery was never a choice, there was forced out of their lands and oppressed by being categorised and primitive beings. Through forced labour. If it was a choice surely black “slaves” would have went back to their homelands long ago. I agree when Kanye when he said we should think freely but we should be be realistic with our thoughts.
He actually makes alot of sense to me. I really havent cared too much for him in the past, not because of the media but jist didnt care for his music. He says what he feels in this video and i applaud him for this.
