Yesterday afternoon, I tweeted out "Kanye West will be a major factor in reducing violence in Chicago. Mark my words." and I meant it. My reasoning? Well, it's simple really, Kanye West is making some major moves in an effort to bring about change in his hometown of Chicago. Sure there's a media circus (mainly CNN) blasting Kanye, calling all types of coon, house negro, nigra (negro but with an "i"), illiterate bafoon, etc, etc. and yet, here's Kanye meeting with the President of the United States actually trying to make a difference. Now I understand that you may not agree with Kanye or our President (hell even I have my grieviences), but you cannot deny the fact, that these two men came together and actually had a meeting about making a change. I didn't see Obama doing that. Granted Obama did attend town hall type meetings with the public, but that's not the point. My point is, Kanye is doing something about a shitty situation in his hometown. Rather than blast the man for meeting with the President of the United States, how about we actually listen to what he's trying to say (and in this case do) and emulate the message. I mean, we are only human. Aren't we?
