Rapper Kanye West discussed the need for black people to accept responsibility for their actions during his meeting with President Trump in the Oval Office on Thursday afternoon. West also shared his thoughts on the issues of police brutality and gun violence.
West was asked by a reporter what he thought of people who say that Trump doesn’t care about black people.
“When you don’t have ownership, then it’s all about how something looks,” West said. “It’s about the patinas, it’s not about the soul. So we focus more on if somebody’s wearing something, someone’s disrespecting. So I got to shoot ’em. Or the idea of someone being racist, you know, we talk about police murders, which we definitely have to discuss and we have to bring nobility to the police officers and make — the police officers are just like us.”
