Kanye West was receiving criticism because he has been quiet amid the protests. I was wondering when he was going to speak up and what his stance would be.Kanye was working quietly behind the scene. He donated $2 million to the Arbery, Taylor and Floyd families. He also set up a college savings fund to cover tuition for Floyd’s 6-year-old daughter. Kanye did separate donations to cover legal costs for Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor’s families. He also donated to several black owned businesses in his hometown of Chicago and nationwide that have been impacted by the unrest in the U.S.

This is exactly what I was hoping and low key expecting from Kanye. It seems that ever since he went on the path of releasing Christian music, it’s brought him closer to who he was when he first came out. We all know where he stands politically, but I’ll respect anyone’s political views if they are a good human within.

Kudos to Kanye!
