"I was very emotional, and I was programmed to think from a victimized mentality. Of a welfare mentality," West said, sitting across from President Trump in the Oval Office.

Cosby wasn’t a conservative. He was drugging and raping women all the while and was on board with Al Sharpton’s Tawana Brawley fraud.

[ GOD BLESS KANYE!!! the SCALES have fallen from his eyes!!! ]

While I am no fan of Kanye or his music, he is using his clout and name recognition to red-pill many Americans of African ancestry which is a good thing and could lead to many people to wake up and cast away the shackles of the welfare state as they leave the democrat plantation!

As President Trump once said: You’ve been voting for democrats for decades and there has been no relief for democrat ran areas, so “What do you have to lose”?

It would be interesting to know if he was on anti-malarials (touring coastal Africa or South America) or on a regimen of heavy duty antibiotics prior to his ‘awakening’.

It’s a reference to Matrix, the Movie.

You took the Red Pill to see the truth about the world, you took the Blue Pill to just chill and go with the flow and be a sheep.
