I couldn’t agree with you more. Besides the fact that West is an ignorant, self-prophesied, (all the things listed), man, he is an excellent example of how not to look at history, culture, literature and how it effects us and how we see things. To completely ignore the past and to not make the effort to read what happened, how are we to know which direction to move forward?
I’m so glad this was posted this. It’s always good for a little self-reflection =)
