Kanye West is showing support for black conservative YouTube personality Candace Owens.
“I love the way Candace Owens thinks,” read ‘Ye’s tweet from Saturday morning. Owens has been compared to Tomi Lahren for sharing controversial views on racism. This includes claiming “white guilt” should stop, calling Black Lives Matter protestors “whiny toddlers,” and saying the “color of a person’s skin should not determine what issues they are allowed to care about.”
Owens has since responded to West’s tweet by asking for a meeting and revealing that “everything that I have been inspired to do, was written in your music.” She also asked for his help to “wake up the black community.”
I’m freaking out. @kanyewest ….please take a meeting with me. I tell every single person that everything that I have been inspired to do, was written in your music.
I am my own biggest fan, because you made it okay. I need you to help wake up the black community. https://t.co/Uz1nB9K0Oz

This isn’t the first time ‘Ye voiced support for conservatives. Two years ago, he told the audience at his Saint Pablo tour that he would have voted for Donald Trump.
“I told y’all I didn’t vote, right?” he said. “But if I would’ve voted, I would’ve voted for Trump.” He also added, “We live in a racist country. That is a fact. This world is racist, OK? Let’s stop being distracted to focus on that as much.” ‘Ye also met with the then-candidate.
