“The liberal will try to control a black person through the concept of racism cause they know we are a very proud, emotional people. So when I say I like Trump to someone who’s liberal, they say ‘Oh, but he’s racist.’ You think racism can control me? That won’t stop me, that’s an invisible wall.” – Kanye West
At the White House, it was a presidential sit-down the likes of which was never seen before.
Kanye West came with an awful lot to say, reports CBS2’s Dick Brennan.
“If he don’t look good, we don’t look good, this is our president,” said West. “He has to be the freshest, the flyest.”

“I don’t answer in simple soundbites, you are tasting a fine wine that has multiple notes to it, you have to play 4-D chess with me like it’s ‘Minority Report,’ cause it ain’t that simple, it’s complex,” he said.

Jada Pinkett Smith — who was accompanied by her mother Adrienne Banfield-Jones — revealed she and Willow, 17, had “talked” about the moment after the teenager admitted on Red Table Talk she had been self-harming after achieving success with her 2010 single “Whip My Hair.”
“I wanted to make sure she was okay,” Jada Pinkett Smith said. “We went through what happened and in the moment I realized as a mother you also have to give your children space to deal with their own shadow.”
The Girls Trip star said she chose to pay attention to the positive things that came from Willow’s revelation.
“I focused more on how she got herself out versus what got her there,” she said. “I was most proud about that she could share it in the way she did, which let me know she had come through in a major way that she could put it on the table like that.”
“I wanted to focus on what [it was] that got her through,” the actress explained. “I really talked to her about her powering side of her journey and give her all the praise in the world for that part instead of focusing on, ‘Why didn’t you tell me?’”
