How Kanye West broke the internet with 7 words

Kanye West tweeted out a supportive message for black conservative media personality Candace Owens, and Twitter lost its mind.


“I love the way Candace Owens thinks,” Kanye tweeted this past Saturday. He then followed up with, “Only free thinkers,” and “we have freedom of speech but not freedom of thought.”

While thousands of Twitter users were quick to voice their support of Owens and applaud West’s “free thinking,” several left-leaning figures resorted to disparaging comments, including actor Tom Arnold calling Owens an “insane alt right race pimp” and using other crude language. (UPDATE: the backlash over Arnold’s words caused him to delete his offensive tweets and issue an “apology” to Owens.)

Candace Owens—the communications director for Turning Point USA and creator of the YouTube channel called Red Pill Black—uses her voice to encourage the black community to change its mentality from “victim” to “victor.” Needless to say, this perspective is not popular with the left.

You can find out more about Candace Owens and her journey to conservatism at the Center’s next lunch forum on Tuesday, May 8. Registration is now open online or by calling 612-584-4557.
